I need updated on 1/24th scale electric drag racing

08 December 2011 - 05:08 AM

I was into electric drags in the 60s when R&C magazine held thos national drag championships and the magazines had bunches off articles on races and how-tos. I lost track over the years but have heard that things have changed a bunch.

Back then Pittman 85 and Ram 50 plate and magnet motors ruled. Top fuel 36V cars were just hitting 1second runs. I have heard that can motors rule nowadays and 1 second cars don't even make the field any longer. Is there a place on the web where I can get up to speed on this topic?

What's the deal with 1:43 scale cars?

08 December 2011 - 05:01 AM

Ever since I was a kid in the 50s, I have wondered about why 1:43 scale cars draw such high prices relative to other scale autos. They don't look any more detailed or higher value than other types. Anyone have insight to this?
