Mega-G magnet flip

It’s not the place to go into the physics, but this magnet flip really does change the downforce characteristics of the car. The low downforce setting will give the car more horsepower.

Always best to mark the underside of the mags with permanent marker before you do anything. Means you can get back to the original set-up.  A small screwdriver and a good push down on a hard surface gets the magnet out. Take the rear axle out first as you might bend it.

This trick also works on other cars with two ‘flippable’ traction mags, but you don’t always get a better car…
