I still have all my Puppies. Just can't part with them. Would be cool to find a home for them.

Being the Retro Hawk motor seems to be THE motor of choice nowadays, and is legal in all classes, how about throwing the Puppy Dog a bone and allowing it to be legal in the Stock car class? Better brakes for one and give us another avenue to use them and mess around perhaps.


I brought this up a while back ... it was shot down..... in flames.

Hallo from far away Germany :) !


i am wondering in the Can Am class (wish we have such a race class in germany!) everybody uses the Ti-22 body.   OK it's the aerodynamical best but how about to delete the allowed attached spoiler only for this body-type?

Then there would be another body with the spoiler that will takes its place. Throughout slot car racing history there has always been one body that is favored. No different now.

As it is now very clear that the Puppy Dog is no longer viable within the IRRA, let's all take a lesson from the sad history of that motor.  If the oxymoron that is "security tape" had met with the scorn it deserved years ago we wouldn't have come to this.

Would it be legal to use glue instead of solder to build a chassis?

Sure, as long you are using it to attach one legal material to another.


If you decide to, it will be interesting to see your application.


The only thing I can think off where it might have some benefit, is some sort of laminated pan(s), with the thinking it might add some dampening.

A long time ago I built a car using small blocks of neoprene rubber as hinges for the pans that were glued on with super glue and surprisingly strong. I didn't pursue it because it seemed to be clearly illegal in Retro but the car worked great!
