Grand Prix Legends

Recommended Posts

I have been working on my historical F1 cars for some time now and have put Ninco NC1 motors in all of them starting with the Cartrix Mercedes Benz W-196

then Policar ferrari 156 and Scalextic Maserati 250F & the Vanwall. These cars are much easy to drive now through the corners. We will be starting a new class for these car call The Historical Grand Prix Legends.

The Ninco NC1 motor fits with no mods at all.

 

 

I will add more pics soon.

Hi Bo,

 

Looking forward to the race pics.

Have you tried the TX-1 Cartrix motor?

I've been told it is equal to the Ninco NC-1.

I can send you one for testing, PM me your details and I'll mail it to you.

 

Regards

Here are some pics of the scalextric Maserati with a Ninco NC1 motor thats been modified to suit scalextric & fly cars, now it has much smooth power delivery and can be push harder through the corners.I have fitted Ninco Classic tyres to the rear, it has more grip now as well.Still needs more work but its getting there.

Sorry to dig this old one up again Bo... but a Q.

 

What voltage were you running the NC-1s at?

 

I've just bought a Jag XK-120 and just wondering what I can run it at without killing the motor!!

 

Some nice pics of some nice cars!

 

Cheers,

Dick

I'll answer for him as I think he may have missed it. As we are currently running tighter tracks we run 12 volts but used to run 13.8 for NC1's previously. Ninco's are rated at 14.8 volts or there abouts so you won't kill them too easily. They are a very under stressed motor.

Any of the Cartrix cars with the S-can motors as standard are as good as an NC1 or NC8. The downfall is when they come with the Suntek motor which can be easily identified by a much shinier motor can metal used when compared to that of a standard can or Mabuchi type. The Suntek almost looks chromed in fact. But also a good replacement for the standard Cartrix TX1, Ninco NC1 or for a replacement for the Scalextric motors is a BWA motor that also has a 14,000rpm rating the same as a NC1 but only costs $4US. Yes that's right only $4 compared to the rip off price for a Ninco NC1 at $40 or more. I have several fitted to Cartrix and Scaley cars from the Classic GP range and the performance is dead set the same as the NC1 or NC8 motored cars plus they come with a motor shaft that extends out both ends of the motor so they can be endbell and can driven applications. That means they can be fitted to Scaley, Ninco, Carrera, Cartix, Fly etc cars without the need to modify the chassis or motors.

Big gap since this has been used but was wondering if anyone can assist with my Cartrix Porsche 804 classic GP, firstly I need to find some alloy wheels and Porsche inserts, and some good tyres for it as the original wheels are buckled well 3 are and with the magnet out it is interesting to drive to say the least , the motor is the slim line FF and it's not bad but I think will need more power once I get it sorted have at least got the nose to stop jumping a bit by adding a little weight up front , any help with car would be appreciated as I was thinking of doing the Tasman proxy next year and by the looks of this car it will take that time to get it right thanks in advance . :)

I can do Porche inserts for the .450BWA rims but they are unobtanium these days.

Have a look at SlotCarCorner for the CB design insert wheels. I'll pull some out of the cupboard later today and show you how they compare with the original Cartrix 804 wheels.

 

Many folks don't know this but SCC run a US and Canadian web front. I've always used the Canadian one as the service Christian provides is outstanding. He always refunds excess postage charges.

Mark, the American lads do the same thing. They now have their system sorted to apply first class rates at checkout for flagged international customers.

 

Colin at RS Slotracing has replacements for most of the BWA wheels. They are not identical, but near enough as makes no difference. RS parts list.

 

The CB Design wheels are good to use, and truly hubless, but of course, with that comes the need to make allowances to access the wheel grubs. Slot Car Corner US or Canada.


Computers. They'll never catch on.
