This thread is dedicated to those who ventured into unknown territory, and tried their hand in build a Womp chassis from scratch.

Here's my "Mini-Int15A" chassis

Same dimensions as SCRRA (formerly D3) Retro 32nd scale. At least the 80 s style Womps. Womps have wide axle width. Far as I know that's the only difference, in anglewinder chassis, I'm not sure if current style Womps actually have defined chassis dimensions.
You can quote me.

I used the same wheelbase and track as a Parma Womp, though this one was designed for a Womp size wing car body.

Had to add a lot of lead. It handled marginally better than a SuperWomp. But it was fun to try

Lets start a new beginning.
Lets come up with a retro build for womp. All brass scratch built change the motor to a halk or slick 7 1/16 front wheels, womp rear wheels and parma retro bodys of the classic canam.
Whos up for it?

I've been using the Champion Thumper chassis with Plafit rabbit motor for my mobile track system for 2 years.

Local club AZGR member Roger Gunning started a class using brass womp chassis, S7 mini motor and Parma CanAm bodies. Not really womp but ya know they're cool.

WHAT IS A WOMP? I thought it was the Parma 1/32 stamped, one-piece steel chassis with wide (3-1/4") stance.

Paul, definitely post some photos of your ideas. I'd like to see what your chassis design looks like & what bodies you had in mind to use. :)

Here's an oak jig I made for building womp-sized scratchbuilt chassis. So far, I haven't built one. :crazy:
