I had some work to do to the track before I could run the 1/24 car. Crash barriers were too close to the track and some widening on the bends was necessary.
The car has the std. 4mm magnet but also foam rubber tyres front and rear. Needless to say, it did not corner or lane change well. Undoubtedly I will need a new track with heavier wire, probably 1mm, but meantime I need a test track so I have improved this one as far as possible. I developed a check gauge for the track. The flat piece of MDF, the width of the car, has a magnet pressed into it and protruding by the same thickness as a piece of plastic sheet bonded under one end and a further piece of plastic is used as a feeler gauge for the other end. This has shown up many bumps on the track and much scraping away of the high spots has resulted in much better running of the larger car.
