Availability of Cars

Post by Jimbo » Mon 11. Mar 2019 18:50

Hi,

It's great to see Magracing on the up again.

I've been away from Magracing for a while but having more time on my hands now I'm thinking of getting started again.
I see there have been some upgrades while I've been away.
My question is, are the cars available in the UK and if so where from?

Hello

We have a few chassis available on ebay at the moment. These are the adjustable ones. We are also in the process of producing a new batch of fixed chassis which will be available soon along with the bodies.

Hi HF
Thanks for replying so promptly.
It's encouraging that that you have taken this up.
I'll look forward to future developments.

I'll be looking to find highly detailed bodies to fit your new chassis, particually
Le Mans cars, so any help or suggested suppliers of these will be most welcome.

I'll have a look at eBay as you suggest.

Regards

Jim

Jim,
It’s difficult to fit an LMP body like the one pictured below, to a magracing chassis, but it is possible.

Image
This kind of body with deep NASA ducts in front restricts the left and right turning of the front wheels. This car will not go around a corner for which the radius of the guide wire is 9”. I’m quite certain that it would work fine if the radius were greater than 12”.

Image

I purchased this body from pbandjimm on ebay for about $10 plus shipping. It’s a light weight SCX PRO body.

Hi Ned,
Wow!
You've done a cracking job on that. It looks great.
I've now found all my Magracing parts and my old test track in the loft,
so tomorrow I'll start figuring out how to re-assemble it to confirm
everything still works.

For now,

Jim
