hi from gulf raceway we are a raceway with a differance. we are locacted in normanton qld. we do not charge any fee for the use of our track. as must of our driver come from low income family's or live in remote area's in the gulf. so we are asking for any old parma wompy's that any of you do not need but could be used buy these remote area kids. or money donation to help with getting to remote area's like doomagee,burketown,croydon,kowanyama,karumba.we are at this moment building trailer that can be used to take our track to these remote areas. so if you can help that would be most gratefull.

if you put {img} in front of the photos address and {/img} at the end the photo appears on the page. just change the { } brackets to [ ]

or click on the icon between the chain and the letter and paste the address 'http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/tonmelk/houseandraceway031.jpg'

these smiling happy faces needed to be online here for all to see :)

What power source are you using, if it's variable try dropping the voltage ..... they don't have to run at 14 or 12 volts, depending on the track layout sometimes 10 volts is enough

That sounds like a recipe for a flameout...
I reckon you are using magnets ....scaley cars with magnets on a Ninco track work well but because of the drag caused by the magnet the motors work a lot harder and therefore heat up...they go like heck but then cook.....answer = remove magnets or raise magnets or???
regards
ps we call them motors

i am just using the ninco power traformer that come with the set. plafit pointer motors run the longest but will not fit into a scaly car or scx. they are the power source that ninco use for they digital sets
