Those folks who complained about the poor rolling quality of the Rapido Coaches, compared to the recently-released Parlors, can now replace the coach trucks with the ones that came with the Parlors.  See: http://rapidousa-com.3dcartstores.com/H ... p_209.html

$15 per car is a pretty good price.  Now, no more complaining!

Happy training,
Dave

I bought some a while back to use under my NHRHTA kits for the SS cars. They take a bit of fiddling to mount them, but are a beautiful truck and very good rolling.

Are there instructions available regarding the removal of the old and replacement if the new trucks including the electrical connection?  Removal of the screw does not release the truck from the underbody and I didn’t want to force it without knowing more about the procedure.

Thanks,

Ed
