Large Scale - SVM Brake Balancer Modification

SVM Brake Cable Modification

With the standard plastic brake balancer moulding on the SVM large scale cars made by Radiosistemi, it is very easy to strip the threads of the soft plastic. An aluminium replacement could be considered, but a simple and inexpensive solution is to use two collets on the cables, as shown in the diagram on the right.

We also have a full parts listing for the Columbia Mk. 5 Competition & Standard Cars in Windows™ CHM file format that may be of interest to the SVM owner.
