That is just too ugly, but the BB axles are cool.

So the 208 and 206 are called the 'giant' motors? They must have been watching too many Godzilla movies.

Hmm, and the box says "In kit form", when it sure looks like a RTR to me... man, those knockoffs are ugly in 1/32!

 

Curioser and Curioser...

 

Pretty sure the AT206 ball bearing 6V model was never used in a kit - except for the ones later put together by Auto World, assuming they used both models of this motor.

This one was built a few years ago......original chassis (brass) and motor, but I used Russkit wheels and BWA inserts.

 

I have the BRM as well.....have yet to build.

Chris,

Nice save on a so-so car!  I like the K&B version much more...

 

Hmm, and the box says "In kit form",

 

 

One has to understand that in 1965, Google-translate did not exist, and what appears weird to us was simply a lot of misunderstanding from likely, the Pidgin-Glish speaking secretary at Marusan in charge of defining the text of export boxes and instruction sheets.

When you see such sentences as  こんにちはお元気ですか?, do you really know how to translate it?
 

Don should know; it means "Bonjour, comment allez vous?" :D

Hmm, I must have missed that Philippe... 

 

Real nice cars Chris; I kinda like the Atlas Cooper myself, but either that or the K&B needs to be prettied up a bit. It's the 1/32 Atlas Brabham that I really like! As much as the two Mono F1s...

I have a nicely built Atlas BT3 signed by Sir Jack but you will have to pry it from my cold body first! :D

I gave him one too because he asked...  :)

And I agree that the Marusan BT3 is one of the nicest 1/32 scale F1 slot car ever made.

Well we can agree on the little green one, the little red one where my first cars that had a guide flag. The Brabham would beat the Ferrari every time because it was the 'pace car' while I thumbed the the other.

 

Now Dokk and I agree on two things ... Music and Atlas .... Unbelievable  :D

 

All that 'stuff' from BiTD was gone .. in 89 I put this one together.

see... :paint2:  Wrong flag, wrong motor, broken headers, no 'center caps, glue blob, wrong spacers and no signatures.....

 

I like the 'Firestone Gum Dipped' tires better than the correct RBL 'Atlas' tires.

Motor from AW, front chassis and body from Mr. Louis Nickes (sp) in NJ, tires from evilpay.

 

I love it just way it is. :wub:  Still have to get the little red one. :to_become_senile:

Bob, we will NEVER agree about music. You are into freaky, druggy and loud, I am into serene beauty by people of which the worse ingesting offense would have been to drink absinthe. No way it can ever be reconciled.  :laugh2:

Can we agree on the Firestones?

 

Never touch the stuff , if you get up and jam to 'druggy' music you'll never need a drink again. :laugh2:

 

Drinking = :)  :D  :crazy:  :wacko2:  :heat:  :bad:

Bob,

There is no way in this entire wide world of sport that you will make me a fan of that crap, sorry. :)

I was born in the wrong century.  Music is like art and literature, all had their peak, in about 1915. It's been downhill ever since, and getting worse.

All one has to do is read on one side,  León Tolstói, on the other side, Hemingway to find out how quickly things went down with literature. And that's before Superman comic books became available!  :laugh2:

Let's face it, you and your peers killed what used to be civilization. But I am in peace with that. Just make sure to stay on the sidewalk when i drive by...  :D

Bob- When I talked to Chris Pistone years ago, I asked her about the windshields. The story I got was that all the Atlas stuff was stored in Tiger Tom's garage/warehouse and when the opened up the body kits and parts, all the windshields except for a few were shattered or crushed. Either they had been molded too thin, or because of some weight of the boxes on top of them had boken them. Not being in a controlled temp environment could also have made the brittle. I really wanted a couple myself. :cray:

Wow  .. slow and Hot on a commercial track. I'll post some picks when I dig it out.

Hello. I'm an Altas motor fan. I have read about the AT-406 and I have a few of them, remagnetized, ready to go into 1/32 slot car chassis and a couple of 1/24.

However, Im have having trouble with giving one motor a tune-up. 

I bought an Atlas tune-up kit off ebay.  Each spring allows the carbon brush to fit inside, but the springs are too wide to fit inside the brass retaining screws.

 

Wanting to know why, I pulled down another one of my Atlas motors, which has thinner brushes.

Can I drill out the brass retaining screw so that it will accept the spring?

Otherwise, where can I find a pair of new replacement (thinner) motor brushes?

 

If anyone can tell me the names of each Atlas motor I would appreciate it.

I'm curious to know why Altas changed the brush size width? The motors sure looks the same.

 

One more question, if I may. I have an armature with green wire. What is the difference between that and those with plain brass wire?

 

  Thank you. 

Steve, from Brisbane, Australia   (4 pictures attached)

Ah, thanks Bob, hadn't considered that!

 

Kemtron used the same coil spring brush setup as Atlas, but for totally different motors.... the ones on the bottom here.

I'm fairly certain that kit is the right one.

However (although the price is fine), the sum given to post them to Australia is more than USD$80  :heat:

No response from the seller.

That's insane. A small packet like a small padded envelope to Australia from the USA is less than 5 bucks, and $13.20 if you want to have it electronically followed.
