Here's where it all started:

John "Bud" Greene, master modeler and slot racer, painted me this Toytech Bat body.

Planning phase coming soon... anglewinder... bat pans... gear-stripping powerful motor...

A HA!  So Pablo has a project for this baby!  I'm pretty sure that, between his chassis and motor build and the arm, Batman will get to the crime scene PDQ!  :)

Here is my rough plan for my Owl Chump style bat pan anglewinder Batmobile:

Can drive motor, .513 OD 26 turns of 26 wire "H" arm, Mura can / endbell with BB's, airgap 20 thou, modern "C" magnets, shunts and buss bars.

3/32 axles front and rear, 64 pitch metal gears 9/45, rear wheels .875 OD by approx .700 wide, fronts .8125 OD by approx .400 wide.

Wheelbase is 5.125" :shok:  Width is 3.250"

What do y'all think ? As always, if I'm out of whack, please tell me :D

Hi Jairus and Bud :wave:

John I've been wondering the exact same thing, and I can hardly wait to see how it all lines up.

If it will go full sidewinder, that's what it will be.  BUT I suspect it will be very similar to the Owl Chump car;

in other words a small angle, not full sidewinder.

Must finish this marathon workweek before I can play with it. :)

Sounds a pretty perfect combination of parts & plan Pablo :)  The sidewinder idea is kewl ,remember Jairus building a sidewinder & having fun with clearancing the endbell/brush hardware but got it to work. Look forward to seeing the caped crusaders ride all ready to punch the banking :D

It worked very well actually. Was a bit of a challenge clearing the rear brush/spring assembly!

Car ran like stink around the track and I loved how it handled. Much like a modern flexi chassis.  
But you can get that with a shallow angle, less work and better clearances.

Here is the link to Jairus' sidewinder:

After re-reading Jairus' Ed Lewis thread, looks like my Batmobile will be an anglewinder for sure :)

 

Paul E. check out post # 37 for spoiler and diaplane info.

Hi! What are the little square pieces on the front axle tube?

Looks more like the piano wire front uprights were bent at a right angle on each side of the axle tube & tied for strength...

Mike, Jim is correct. And it would be better if you examined the full thread on the build up. :) (I think Paul provided a link in post#20)

You could also look at the Philip Niyazi build on scratchbuilt.com or the June 1970 issue of Car Model magazine.
