Your getting to be a real professional at these little motors and cars. Good for you and this is good news as I am sure there are others out there.

<p>I did some work on another Corgi Electro Rockets car. But from the little black cap from the engine the contacts were broken. So i took the coppper contacts from a power strip. I made 2 brushes from some copper sheet.It is working. Now 7 working Corgi Electro Rockets cars.</p>

Nice collection. I see 9 bodies but only 8 boxes. You have to find another box then.

<p>I did some work today on the latest 3 Corgi Electro Rockets cars. From the 3 little engines there are 3 brushes ok. So i made 3 new brushes from copper. The 3 little engines are working so next thing to do is to put them in the cars. I made a new copper contact for the car where the copper was rotted away. I made it extra strong. Tested and working.</p>

The difference is obvious for sure. when you see the base. Even from the top as there is a spare wheel in the back of the no motorized version.
