The funny thing was they sold out fast and I could not get one. At the end of the day I was talking to Tom as he was cleaning up and he says look a box with some chassis.
I bought 3 one for me and two for friends.
They seem real nice.

Joe, are they a re-pop of the Thunderjet chassis ? I didn't know Dash was even into chassis.

It's the closest thing to one it even has brass on the bottom and Dash magnets . It sounds a 100% better then the JL chassis on a 9 volt and the rear axel has no play. I have not had it on a track yet but sofar I give it two thumbs up. Take a look at the link. https://www.slotsnstuff.com/

Hi George,

 

It was nice to see you at the show -- it's been a while, hasn't it? The photos really convey the look and feel of the event.

What, no pics of your friend Big E's vendor booth? Just kidding... :>)

I had a good sales day, and a lot of fun. I was so busy I never got to make even ONE shopping lap for myself!

 

See ya soon... Ernie
