Does anyone know any links or is there a place within Slotblog that I might get some build ideas on an inline motor chassis that I can use on a tri-oval track. I enjoy scratchbuilding and hope there are ideas put there I can look at.

Thanks.

in-line, LTO tri-oval,oval 4.5 stock car. originaly an in-board mounted motor with a very narrow LRI tire. now a conventional, in-line cr102. not too shabby on a flatish short oval. loses a bit on the outer lanes. almost flat out on the inside lanes. front and rear wheels rotate independently. best regards

Here is the one I usually use. It's my standard stalker build with the outside pan changed to a 1/4" wide .064 brass. The regular pan is 1/2" wide .064 brass

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Hello Dominator, was there supposed to be a picture or link with this?
I am anxious to see it.

Thanks
Ray

Really nice build!

Obsessed is the word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

When you set up your chassis think about what the big cars do to get around the track faster. I found that running a harder tire on the outside gave me an advantage.
