I saw that on the ERI newsletter late, last week, and was going to post the pic, but got a little too busy and forgot.
Like Dennis, I wondered who made them.
Unless I missed it, it wasn't mentioned in the newsletter.
Without analyzing it much, I ran my off the cuff idea about a Lego chassis to Jerry Kulich at JK, about six months ago, and he quickly changed the subject.
Thinking about it a bit after seeing the above chassis on Thursday or Friday, I think the stumbling blocks (sorry
) would be:
1) durability - would that plastic guide tongue take a hit (the bumpers protecting that area are a good idea)
2) price - $100 - I hadn't seen that, just the $14.99 net price for the chassis.
3) do you really want blocks flying around your raceway, especially if other non-Lego cars are on the track?
I hope it works out, but I am trying to be realistic.
