    Well,I bought an Indianapolis 5000 today at a boot sale but it seems to be missing the clip that attaches the power unit to the track, so all there is is the two wires which are screwed to the power unit.. If someone was on for sending me a picture of their power unit it might give me an idea what Im looking for or make something up to fit it..any help greatly appreciated Thanks

    hi, I just bought several pieces in order to repair what can I do on my own but it seams to be more difficult as I thought.
    Is it possible to send you severals chassis (missing springs, work too slow,...) or cars (missing windows)?
    Thank you for helping and sorry for my bad and too old english :P

    Hi there, last week I dusted off my PowerTrack 2000 set; it was not used during the last 25 years! To my surprise,I got it to work, but the contact strips on the cars (PT104, PT103, PT105
    Jägermeister edition and PT106) are totally worn. Which would be the the best type of contact strips to replace these? I would really like to get this track in good condition again!
    Also, would PowerTrack2000 be compatible with a lane changer or does that require other cars?

    The rarity of several 12/18v cars is alledged to be due to a factory fire at the DAPOL warehouse.....'In 1994, while the company was moving to its previous location at Llangollen in North Wales, a
    huge fire destroyed the old site at Winsford in Cheshire, and large quantities of products and historical Wrenn material were destroyed.' Those 'products' may have included a vast storage of the
    above cars pre-distribution. It is believed that only some stocks were released with these cars, in Powertrack Plus, PROOPS and Counterlane sets. Does anyone know more about this....please comment or
    use the Contact form...thanks
