Yes, that idea works well (although i used a .5mm bit of sheet styrene), and being able to run both types would be an advange. Two points I did not make earlier are, first, without the tape the wire-guided cars eventually have a tire get caught in the slots, and two, that I would like to get rid of the slots and rails in the street to get a more accurate look to my Main Street.Lee, instead of covering the streets center rail with tape, couldn't you place a nylon washer or disk on the car magnet to increase the spacing and reduce the friction? That way the road could be used for both types of vehicles.
That is what I did, too. I think their inventory is depleted of 1:43 cars because I bought all they had on hand.They look super. But how did you order them from the website? When I click on SHOP FOR VEHICLES, it sends me to their ebay site with none of the cars you just got.
I actually worry about that, that they will be overwhelmed. Yesterday I sent him eight diecast cars to convert: he charges $95 to $135 or so for each but I need enough. I'm working on several dfferent designs for both making my own cars and big rigs.Thanks Lee. Good to know. With you as their advocate, I suspect they will have to ramp up O scale production.
