C435 Porsche 911 "Shell"
Here are some additional views of the Scalextric Porsche 911 "Shell".
Head and brake (not tail) lights. The brake lights only come on when the power is released and the slotcar is slowing down. This is down with a small electronic circuit containing some diodes and capacitors. As a Mechanical Engineer that is the limit of my knowledge of electronics! The slotcar as a traction magnet on a metal plate screwed to the chassis. Fitted with new motor pinion.
Slides around the bends if pushed hard but this is not easy to control because of the traction magnet, eg the back end suddenly breaks out.
