The stiff braid that comes with Scalextric and Carrera cars is awful - too stiff and too thick and actually wears more as a result. Softer braids seem to last better on our club track (technical Spor...

I bought a Scaleauto 0.95mm replacement tip and made my own handle.  The 0.95 tip is actually tapered from 0.9 to 0.95 and will loosen and tighten M2 grub screws that my standard 0.9mm keys simply rot...
