Hi Fellas,

Just recieved an old JK Eurosport chassis kit from a fellow slotblogger for a song.

No instructions on how to build it come with the packaging and I can't find any info on the web that points to it.

Attached is a pic of the chassis kit. Anyone out there familiar or can give some tips?

Thanks!

Mikey

I've got one of those :)

I'll have a look tonight when I get home to see if I still have the instructions :)

We never made such an elaborate front end assembly. Just usually a piece of .039" piece of piano wire bent in a "U" soldered to the plumber section under the front guide tongue to act as the up stop and down stop for the center section. Also did a much simpler front wheels

This picture of an old 1/32 C can Eurosport was built by Chuck, the guy who designed your kit and and made the build drawing that Zipity posted.

I don't have any of my chassis to show but I usually used a piece of spring steel in place of the front "U" bent wire.
