        I have a Carrera one that I started but never finished. BNova guide adapter is already in it. It's still in pieces on my workbench.

        Here’s the breakdown of what has been done to the Scalextric Porsche RS Spyder, to get it competitive with other LMP’s that race here.
        1. Slot.it Orange end bell motor
        2. Slot.it axles(2)
        3. Slot.it axle stop
        4. Slot.it 26t Crown gear
        5. Slot.it 5.5 10t Pinion
        6. .005 axle spacers(5)
        7. CB Design CBD0010 15x8 wheels front
        8. CB Design CBD0020 15x11 wheels rear
        9. NSR 5202 ZG tires front
        10. QuickSlick CB47F tires rear
        11. SlotingPlus SP101001 Guide
        12. .01 Guide Spacer
        13. .016 sheet lead & Golf tape
        14. Removed interior tub, replaced with card interior.
        15. Replaced plastic bushings with Brass bushings

        That’s it for the parts list. Car handles nicely. It is right there with some of the fastest LMP’s that race here. Now it’s up to the driver to make it perform at it’s highest level.

          Or, to put it another way - keep 90% of the bare chassis, keep 80% of the body - through away everything else, and add well over $100- worth of replacement parts....

          Whatever floats yer boat, I guess....

          As the saying goes - "Speed costs money - how fast do you want to spend?"

          Impressive effort though!
          All the way from Sydney, Australia.......

          Cheers, Tony.

            99%chassis, 99%/body, 90%/interior.
            Car cost, $30
            Parts cost, approx. $70
            Well worth it in my opinion for a great looking, great running car!
