Overheating Cars

Recommended Posts

Anyone had a problem with the Lambo super resistant cars overheating when on restricted power?

 

I adjusted the power on two cars so my younger racers crashed a little less. Having raced for several minutes one of the Lambo's stuttered and stopped, but the motor revved :o

 

Sounding like the pinion had given up I was surprised as the car hadn't done too many hours. So off to the workshop.

 

Having taken the body off I discovered that the mounts for the motor had melted and the motor was no longer in contact with the drive gear.

 

So is this a problem with running on half power or is it a cooling issue with the Lambo's or a dodgy motor?

 

The controller was operated with the trigger fully deprssed for some time.

 

I now have a digital chip and spare other bits ready for the next DPR car I buy.

 

Thanks.

What's a DPR car?

 

I'm just about to start this journey of digital slots so I can't help you with the hot motor. I guess that car is toast so to speak.

DPR is yet another Scalextric TLA (three letter acronym). Stands for Digital Plug Ready.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Yup. The plug in chip rather than the solder in chip.
