In my never-ending quest to have one of every Dynamic part ever produced these are some less common entries. I know the pictures stink so if you want to see any individually just ask.

I have so many different Dynamic parts already it is staggering. I am sure there are so many I do not have yet. I really think that some kind of catalog should be made to ID these parts with pictures. I have many package variations as well. Would anybody be willing to put something together here. I will share any pics of loose and packaged parts I have. Maybe they can be listed by number. Who knows. I think the definitive listing should be done.

Left to right: #514 for K&B Challenger (never saw a built car that used this chassis) ,#551 for Hemi 400 inline, #552 for Russkit 34, and #554 for Pit Can 6001.

Left to right: #681 wire axle. Note that this one does not have the wire suspension, you are supposed to "hammer" the axle into the holder. #586 wire suspension, #675 high crown front wheels (no, you can't have them), #679 Siliconite wheels and tires, #662 and #663 body mounts in different lengths, and #580 roller bearing front end, a pricey $2.49 back in the day.

For better or worse, AIR Dynamic was "absorbed" into the AMT empire, itself just a name perhaps in overseas hands today?  I welcome any stories on the origin and history of the Dynamic line.  Maybe the name is available for pennies today, or even migrated into free territory, awaiting resurrection?

I believe that AMT offloaded Dynamic when they got out of slots by 67 or so - Dynamic continued for quite a few years with semi-pro and R/C equipment. Try the VSRN website; Greg was very keen on Dynamic and did quite a few articles when he was publishing the newsletter.

Dynamic marketed the "Dynabrute" HO brass anglewinder car after the AMT split, early '70s. All I can remember HO-wise from them, John.  

 

Dynamic was pretty much done by '73-74.


What's all this brouhaha?

Follow me for fun! Go slot car racing!

The whole story of Dynamic and Hiram Johnson is fascinating... until his death aboard a hang glider that lost its wing in flight.

I always wondered why the Dynamic product line was dominated by an almost too wide variety of parts that were die cast.  While not a unique manufacturing process utilized in the slot racing industry it certainly dominated this one. I always assumed it went back to their roots in model planes. 

Hi and Si. Two smart guys.
 
PdL, any ideas you want to share or do we have to wait for "the book"? LOL.

Hi Guys,

 

I have a number of Dynamic cars (as many do, I'm sure) that include some of the more common variations if anybody need to see some. Yes, I believe the Dynamic folks tried to cover the scratch builder's field like their model airplane parts as well as making their own production cars.

 

My own memories include ship models because I owned and ran the Super Ships model boat company in the late '70s after an earlier life as a slot car racer. One of Super Ships' contemporaries was the Dynamic Model Boat company. Same guys at a time after their slot car efforts! I think you can still find model boat offerings from Dynamic on the hobby market today.

 

I was always fascinated by the Dynamic chassis which had a hinge in the middle as opposed to a drop arm or articulated pan set. The hinge in the middle design was not a good handling feature but they persisted. I can't say why although I think the first historic angle-winder (side winder?) car also had a hinged frame in the middle. If they copied the idea... well, OK. But anyone running Dynamic frames will tell you it wasn't a good handling feature.

 

Thanks,

Superbird

Fellas,

 

 I'd like to see this thread revived as I myself have just recently "rediscovered" Dynamic parts. I'm now in the process of preserving a pair of Dynamic chassis cars that I came across a while ago.

 

I'm also struggling along with my "Buried Treasure" thread elsewhere here on Slotblog...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Dynamic thing might get me out of the slump. :dash2: :dash2: :dash2:

Hi Johnson also made model airplane parts.  I used several of his .049 motors in mini rat racing in U-control.
