  • 1/32 Monogram Slot Car replacement parts

    I have been fussing about with these for a month or so. I have been lucky finding some NOS gears and brushes plus aftermarket wheels & tires. I was wondering if anyone made replacement axles or reproductions of the original tires in rubber or urethane? No silicones as we do not use those at the tracks in my area. I am trying to put a few together for some vintage IROC style of racing. I have bodies (MRC still has some available), just trying to get a few restored and running again.
    Thanks!

      Google EJ’s Hobbies. Ed has Monogram parts and his tires are very good. And he’s fun to talk to!

        Hi Mark, a couple of pics. would help..............if you are talking Vintage Monograms with 1/8 threaded axles,........both PCH and Prof. Mtr. (among others) carry 1/8 th 5/40 threaded axles......

        As far as repro tires for vintage double flanged wheels,......RSSlotracing and Paul Gage both have urethane tires, made from the original Monogram molds.,....so they have the same sidewall markings as the originals.

        Cheers

          What models of cars? I have Paul Gage urethane tires on all of my Monogram CanAm cars. Over the years I've harvested a lot of parts from Greenwood Corvette's to use when building cars for my oval, as well as finding NOS parts in hobby stores.

              Mark- EJ’s tires are rubber, which is what I prefer, if that’s what you are looking for .

                Not true - they are Urethane. I quote from his website "My slot car tires are made of top quality Polymer Urethane..."

              Thanks for the info. I have already exhausted EJ's for vintage (1960's era) parts and like his tires and rims.

              I need the 1960's era parts. Believe it or not, I had a Hobby shop when the "modern" Monogram (2000's releases) so I have plenty of spares and can find them easily.

              Thanks for the leads on the axles.

              I have searched by part numbers online. Leads to many broken links and "empty holes" sadly.

                You will be extremely lucky to find any 1/8th 5/40 threaded vintage axles by searching for part numbers...........most of them disappeared in the late 60's !!
                The good news is that a few shops still stock them (PCH, Prof. Mtr., Ej's etc.), and you do not need to find a "specific" manufacturer's axle...........any 1/8th 5/40 threaded axle will fit your Monogram cars.
                The only caution is to find one(s) with the non threaded portion just long enough so that the threads do not run in the bushings (this will score the inside of the bushings). Longer than necessary threads can easily be cut to the proper length with a Dremel.

                PS Pattos Place (Austraila) does sell some nice 5/40 threaded double flanged wheels in a few sizes,...and, he also has urethane tires to fit

              Professor Motor carries Ortrman urethane tires from the original molds. I use them on lots of my vintage cars--they work great.

              I lost a lap, can I have one of yours?

                Ej's tires (he makes 2 sizes, the #15 and #16) have always been made of compression molded rubber (not urethane) , and , are excellent in terms of mold quality, grip, and longevity.

                I use these tires regularly on vintage 1/32 cars, and have always been impressed.

                Cheers
