- Drivetrain (axles, gears, wheels & tires)
In the competitive slot racing world, almost all races are held with cars without magnets (non-mag racing). In the home context, magnets allow greater traction of the slot cars. However in our opinion, driving/racing with magnets does have its downside. For one, when cars de-slot, it normally happens at much higher speeds, flinging cars off the track like meteorites and in many cases, right smack into a wall. This results in greater damage to the cars.
Driving/racing without magnets allows the cars to enter a slide (or drift) before de-slots usually happen. The driver then, has the opportunity to regulate the speed of the car when this happens. With practice, this can turn out to be a very graceful drift and add more fun to the racing.
