The motors were quite lively if I recall, sometimes over powering the little cars, so you must have a mediocre one in that car.
Aren't the axle spacers the wrong way round on the front of the car in the photo?
Dennis, there are no spacers to speak of in these cars, the front and rear axle are factory set and cannot be changed. The front axle has lots of play on its plastic hook protruding from the chassis, so it can look offset but it is actually centered.
