  • 1:43 TO GUIDE

    Is there a guide on how to switch from guide pin to guide flag?

  • #2
    i designed a GoGuideAdapter for Go and artin cars, available on shapeways.

    but it is also possible to just use any availabel guide.
    i prefer printed guides from shapeways as they are designed for 1/43rd cars.
    1/32nd are normalle a little big and the original SlideGuide is a little too shallow for 1/43rd tracks.

    here are some pics from the GGA (GoGuideAdapter):

      I never knew about these,adapters. They look like they do the job well.

      Cheers

          no Roland, the guide rotates free in the holder, the limit in in the middle

            Okay. I forgot to take into account that it depends on where the pivot is. I still very often assume the pivot position being at the rear end of the guide, just as is standard with jet flags that I´ve been using for more than half of my life ....

              Pfuetze, very nice guide flag setup you've created! I've never handled or taken apart a 1/43 Carrera GO! car, looks like you drilled out the chassis and added bearings too?

                SlotCat, the drilled out chassis with ball bearings was an extra on that car.
                ball bearings all around. still got beaten in a proxy race by a car with bearings reworked with CA glue only. :-)
