A Faster FLY Vette
The FLY Corvette is a really nice slot car but like with all slot cars theres always room for improvements!
Here is a few simple steps i came up with that will Truly make you Vette FLY!
Stuff you will need
1, Shoe Goo or any other glue of choice
2, FLY-1003 Marcos,Corvette Super Tires
First thing you will need to do is take apart your car and locate the magnet and remove the assembly you can pop off the top of the magnet holder very easy by using a small screw driver and prying it up.Next take out the shim that is under the bar magnet shown in picture #1 below place it on top of the bar magnet and reinstall the top assembly that holds the magnet in place you may want to put a little drop of glue on the 2 tabs to make sure it stays down now your magnet should be in it's lowest possible position.
NEXT Step you can either use the stock fly tires or go for all out performance and use the FLY B-1 Marcos, Corvette Super tire. I chose the super tires for optimum performance as you can see in the photo below. Now i glue everything in place what i do for this mod on the fly corvette is i glue the A Arms in place so they don't move at all this makes the car handle much better!! You don't know how many times i hear guy's saying there parts popped out and they stripped a gear well not anymore!! Here is how it's done the car should first be cleaned in all spots that need to be glued in place with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils from the parts then let them dry. The car should be placed on a curve section of your track or an extra curve you have left over of the same type track you own for the gluing process! when gluing the A Arms in place ..YOU ASK WHY SHOULD THE CAR BE ON A CURVE? well the turns are where the front wheels play ther most part in the handling department! In the picture below it shows where you should glue the A Arms in place and also the bushings and motor indicated with a red dot on all parts to be glued .I use GOOP Shoe Goo glue because it's strong but it also can be removed if needed it takes a few hours to dry so you will need to let the car sit on the track for a while you can use a faster drying glue it's up to you. When the car is set on the curve make sure the front wheels are in a position so they are touching the track surface next glue the front A arms and all the other parts shown in place with glue and let sit to dry on curve track...
After fully dried put your Fly
corvette back together and I bet you it
