Where are you adding washers? To the motor? To the wheel itself somewhere? I know how the Faller wheel operates, and yes it can walk off of the wheel that turns it. Not sure exactly what you are attempting to do with the washers. The wheel itself could be warped, too, causing it to walk off.

no no no no no no no no nnoooooooooo.[ban1] [angry0] [badidea] no lol ok was going to glue the washers to both sides of the spindle connected to the moter, so it adds a track to follow, my fear is the it would be to much weight and the motor cant turn the wheel....


my other problem when i get this to work properly is the cars get stuck and do flips and such lol

If you want to power it from the wall outlet you will need a plug in power supply (battery eliminater) radio shack sells one that has different voltages availible I believe
