    Oh, yeah, the GPlus cars with the rare earth magnets for better traction! Slot car affecionados could be every bit the tinkerers/tweakers that audiophiles are - polished commutators, sanding radius into the brushes for a better fit against the commutator, different tires, different lube on the bearings... Some guys went so far as to rewind motor armatures with silver wire! Craziness. :D

    Just ordered a belt and tire kit from Wjoe radio, I didn't realize that they are about one hour drive from here. I'll be opening up that 950 cassette deck as soon as get it! It left California today! :)

    I'm posting more fluff,
    Till I pick up my stuff.

    Got the belt kit today,
    That blows me away.

    I'll get good and high,
    And then give it a try!

    Good luck! I didn't find re belting that hard as long as you are patient. Just make sure you clean the wheels good to remove any old belt material

    NO CALL on my amplifier status! This is getting OLD!

    I think it's worse that I'm left just hanging, not knowing what is going on! It gives me a bad feeling! I think that I have been quite patient!
