I want to mount a Slot.it Jaguar body and I am nervous!

It looks like there are two backing plates on the inside of the body behind the vents in front of the rear wheels that need to be removed and some body support that need to be removed in order to get the chassis situated correctly for pin mounting.

Am I correct, or all screwed up?

I read all the body mounting tech on TSR's home site, and it seems that the XJR body doesn't sit on top of the chassis as nicely as the 962 body does.

Right?

Are there clearance issues with the spur gear?

Question #2.

I found a 1/32 Pontiac Solstice toy car at Wal-Mart, and the wheel base will work, but the pan will need to be cut down side-to-side.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Mike,

What mounting system are you going to use?? The pin tube set up or the two sidepan mounting brackets?? If you are using the side mounting brackets can you modify them to fit around the side of the vent??

I will have to pull the Jag body later today and see what the problem is and get back to ya on that...

As for the cutting of the chassis, just scribe a line where you want to make the cuts and use a Dremel and cut-off wheel to cut the chassis. Then fine-tune the chassis width with a file...

I'm using the pin tube mount.
