Very creative, Roar!

Would love to see pics from other angles, especially of the bottom.

Beautiful job, definitely out of the box.

WOW, that is one of the coolest builds I've ever seen. The driver is perfect for the application :victory:

 

One thing we do know that with a "half a pound" of motor up front she won't be doing wheelies anytime soon :D

 

Yes, show us some more pics.

 

Roar has been a valued customer of mine for years. I hope some of my bits were used here.

 

Roar, welcome to the Circus.

Great build Roar. Beautiful car. I would like to see how you did the the gearing set-up under there. Was it "Pure Hell" to complete the drive line?

 

If I remember correctly you purchased an NOS build-up ... Buz-Co chassis, w/Red Bomb motor, Lancer bodied Ferrari from me some years back, could you post a picture of that car too?

Would definitely love to see the drivetrain hookup/shaft arrangement, really intriguing!! Definitely some fresh & original design work in this beauty :)

The driveline is really simple. The Pittman DC 85 has a 1/8 " motor axle. The extension is a shortened 1/8" blank axle. The join is done with a soldered on pinion. The whole thing runs trough a extra bracket with a ballbearing (for support and to minimize strain on the axle join). And that's it.

What happened? I now get a "You  do not have permission to view this attachment." on each of  the attached photos. At one time, all these photos were shown in the posts, not as an attachment like now. Have they been removed?

Think it may of happened when Greg made Roar his own forum? I get the same thing Bill. Maybe something in the "permissions" of the thread/forum..

Yep, I missed a single checkbox when setting up the permission matrix for Roar's new subforum. And I was so sure I am prefect, what a bummer to prove to everyone that I'm not... LOL!

Should be fixed now. Can someone post to confirm please?

Pablo,

Sorry, I wasn't clear in my request...

I meant "post to confirm that Roar's pics are now visible to you".

The "You Do Not Have Permission..." alert was due to my fimble-fingering the permissions when I created the subforum.

The "attached photos" captions were a separate issue; it just meant that image tags for the pics had not been inserted into the text blocks. I fixed those as well when I was in the thread.
