Carpet track

My track is 12' x 23', and I made barriers out of 1"x2" wood strips. The edges of the strips are covered with the gray carpet and seem to protect the cars from too much damage. I attached the...

Carpet track

I have been running on the cheap gray Home Depot carpet, and found that traction is not that great. Grooved tires work better than slicks.

Foam tires

Where can I buy foam sheet that is suitable for making tires? Lots of companies make tires, who makes the foam?

Smile Tire modifications

I have found that cutting grooves in the tires (around the tire) improves grip and makes the handling more predictable. I run on an Ozite type carpet.

I mount the tires on a mandrel in a lathe...

Iwaver motor problems

My latest 02 Iwaver seemed to have a defective motor. Initially it was a bit slower than the K cars, but after an hour of use, it was down to half speed. I replaced the motor with a Kyosho spare,...

ABS adjustment

The Iwaver manual says the ABS is adjustable, but all I can do is turn it on and off. How can the ABS braking be adjusted. Right now, mine gives a short pulse to the brakes and then just coasts.
