Carrera Budget Guide Upgrade

Recommended Posts

There are 3D replacement units for these to take aftermarket guides but I thought I'd have a go and see if I could come up with my own budget version.

This will take a Ninco prorace guide. It's not a tight fit but it's pretty good and I think better than the standard guide.

 

First off I disassembled the guide unit and trimmed this bit around the red line. The ends of the ridge on the underside needed to be trimmed as well.

next I epoxied it into place and added a couple of triangle braces

next it was dremel time, around the front for clearance (red Line) and took the sides back to the ridge for extra guide rotation (green lines).
