  • Question about the Revoslot Ferrari 333SP

    I just got the white kit in the mail from Power Hobbies and although I am highly impressed with the fully assembled chassis I am afraid that assembling the body will pose a difficult challenge. So far I can't find any information, such as an exploded drawing showing how the various components are attached. If anyone reading this has a link to where I can find more information about assembling this kit I would appreciate seeing it posted.

    There is no link to assembly instructions that I have seen. The kit is very easy to assemble. And you being ‘Modlerbob’, you should have no issues getting it together and on the track lickity split😁

      To be honest I haven't looked closely but in the bags it appears complicated.

        If it was labeled like regular model kits, it would be as a level 2. One step above Snaptite.

          It has gone together rather easily and I hope that when I test run it Saturday it will run smoothly. Then I will disassemble it and paint it yellow or red. Pattos has decals for the red MOMO car.

            So now, I have driven the car with the stock tires. Now I am about to order some PG tires from SCC and they don't have a tire guide listing for this car. The rims that the car comes with don't have a ridge in the middle unlike most modern rims. The do have flanges on the edges. So, I figure the tires with a 2mm wide slot would work the best. Any suggestions and why yours would work better than mine?

            Call Steve at SCC- he may be able to help you figure it out.

                The tire selection guide still has no listing for the Ferrari and the suggested tires all have the 5mm groove down the center. Won't that create a valley on the tire surface?

                  The Ferrari tires are the same size as the Supra tires. Exactly what kind of aftermarket tires are you looking for, rubber, silicone, urethane? If your racing rubber/urethane, just stick with the stock tires. Silicone, go with the Quick Slick TS43.

                        The Paul Gage tires recommended for this car do have a 5mm groove. Search SCC site for 5mm and look for DF (double flange) suffix. Two diameters available. This info from Paul.
                        I have two pair here but haven’t gotten around to putting them on the rims. Mine were bought for a BRM 1/24 Ford Escort which uses the same wheel.

                        Just dug my PG tires out and put them on the Escort.
                        These tires do not have a recess in them as the other tires do. The tires look to be made for air wheels and have two very narrow grooves in the inside. There is no valley on the tire tread when installed.
                        Exact tire I used is the 21125LMDF.

                          Here’s a picture of the PG 21125LMDF tires after a few laps around my routed track. No sign of a valley on the tread surface.
