TYPE 1: 20mm Braids (Vintage)This braid, together with the old 'standard' slot-guide has been Scalextric's longest production power pick-up system. It was used on most cars from the early 1960's to the very late 80's, some of which, may have carried over into the 1990's.he ends of the leads trap the braids in their slots at the leading edge of the slot-guide. A slim, pure 100% copper braid that can conduct enough power to run 12 standard Scalextric motors flat out without even getting warmA braid that is supple enough to set at a reasonably deep angle to the guide to keep contact if the nose lifts, but will still compress flat to the guide plate under braking for a cornerA braid that reduces arcing, which reduces the build-up of carbon on all tracks and cuts the chance of interference on digital sets Braking: Braid tension is soft enough for even the lightest-nosed F1 to flatten them against the guide plate, giving guide max depth in slot Which size of Braid, do I actually need?Confused by the different types that have been made over the years? With only a few very rare exceptions, it basically boils down to just three different types. That's not bad over a span of 50 years of Scalextric Cars. This advert is for the Type 1(Vintage) braid, 20mm long, but we also sell 27mm and 40mm, along with a multitude of other sizes TYPE 2: 27mm Braids This braid, was introduced circa 1990 and continues, in slightly modified form, as the 'Sport' guide familiar to the modern cars.The motor leads on these remain inside the chassis, attaching to the inboard fittings of a pair of plates which have an exposed face beneath the chassis. The longer braids then bend over the top face of the guide and contact the plates as it pivots.Here you can see the braids' trapped ends, just visible in their slot, behind the free trailing ones.(These braids are also suitable for Micro-Scalextric cars) ........................................................................................................................... Also available from stock TYPE 3: 40mm Braids In the 1980's Scalextric produced some Stock-Cars with a commutator-like device on the pivot post of their slot guide and both ends of the braid tucked in, which allowed them to spin round and run in the reverse direction without reversing polarity to the track. Now, of course, most people asscociate them with the Drift-Cars,which have become very popular in recent times.them with the Drift-Cars, as they have been quite a hit recently.There's quite a catalogue of 360-degree spinners out there now!....................................................................................................................................................................Alco Manufacturing LtdDon't forget here at Alco, all we do every working day of the year is manufacture Braid, so if you have any enquiry outside of the advert, please email....sales@alcoltd.com, or call our sales team on 0151-355-3696, 9am -5pm Monday-friday Condition: New, Country//Region of Manufacture: United Kingdom, Non-Domestic Product: No, Modified Item: No, Custom Bundle: No, Item Type: Braids, Sub-Type: Braids, MPN: n/a, Brand: Scalextric, manufactured by Alco, Cheshire
