View Full Version : Carrera 1/24 Motor Swap

11-04-2002, 06:53 AM
I've been racing stock Carrera 1/24 cars on my 100'+ lane track for a few years now & I'd like to know if there are any faster motors available. As of now I haven't made any kind of modifications to my cars, mainly because I haven't come across anything other then 1/32 parts. Is there any place on the web I can go for motors, gears, tires etc.?

Yes there are motor available.

Their names:
-Scaleauto SC002
-Racegold Tuning
-Plafit BISON
-Carrea black

All of them have the same outside dimensions and fit perfectly into the Carrera chassis.
We tested them all. It all depends on how many Volts you drive your babys with.


Hope that helps,

In the USA, we have used 12 vDC auto battery power for the standard since 1958. WHY DO THESE 1/24 CARRARA cars need to be on 18vdc??????? It says right in their literature "do not run our 1/32 cars on 18vdc" Only HO cars should run on 18vdc. This is an incentive for me to NOY BUY 1/24 Carerra - AT ALL..EVER>>>
