  • Pickup braid

    In a pinch (like me, now), is there a way to use my roll of regular copper pickup braid, on a Carrera 1/32 car ?

    Yes. Disassemble the braids and holder. Use a tiny pair of side cutter or small screw driver to pry up the brass holder edges. Remove and measure the stock braid. Replace the braid by carefully repositioning in the original locations. Press or smash the brass holders with clamps or a vice. Should go right back in the way it came out.

      I can confirm, have done this with my policar BRZs which have the Carrera style holders.

      Yep, hit the nail fair and square on the head.

      You may want to get the Carrera guide converter and Slotting guide sold by SCC. It makes things much easier.
