2 Newly Made HO Slot Car Aurora G+ G-PLUS style Pick Up Shoe Springs 8888 BTO
    Item Description
    Offered Here are TWO (2)  Newly Made HO Slot Car Aurora G+ G-PLUS style Pick Up Shoe Springs, replaces part #8888. NEWLY MADE B.T.O. Better Than Original!
    These new G-Plus pickup shoe springs are made in the USA from .007" beryllium copper.   There are 9.625 coils per spring at an uncompressed spring height of .225".
    Original Aurora G-Plus and Super MagnaTraction springs used an outside diameter of about .098" while the spring hole in the chassis measures about .112".  This gap of about .014" gives the spring too much leeway and could cause the shoes to tilt and not lay flat.  Increasing the O.D. to .105" allows for a much better fit and performance. 
    These springs can be used in the Aurora G-Plus chassis as well as all the Aurora Super MagnaTraction style chassis which includes the Speed Shifters, Blazin' Brakes and Cat's Eye.
    Note: Aurora used the same pickup springs in both the G-Plus chassis and all the Super MagnaTraction style chassis.  Because of the different pickup shoe design between the G-Plus and Super MagnaTraction, the stock G-Plus springs can often be too strong for the Super MagnaTraction style chassis, resulting in rapid shoe wear and deslots.  Another spring is available with an uncompressed spring height of .200" specifically to work better in the Super MagnaTraction style chassis.
     Note: Both the new G-Plus and new Super MagnaTraction spring use the same wire, number of coils, inside and outside diameter.  The only difference between the two springs is the uncompressed height.  The G-Plus is at .225" and the Super MagnaTraction is at .200".  The shorter free length of the Super MagnaTraction spring results in a weaker spring.
