From all the McLarens, the Slot.it McLaren F1 GTR Gulf #41 24H Le Mans 1997 is my personal favorite  :yahoo: !

Can this car be set-up as a sidewinder?

Hi Rainer,

 

I've been searching the internet and I don't think it can. The only thing I can find is it can be set-up as an inline or an anglewinder. I'm looking for a car for the Michigan 24 hour race next year and sidewinders are what most of the teams run. The NSR Mosler is the car of choice right now.

Rainer,

 

I just talked to a guy today who says that you can run a sidewinder set-up in this car. I think I'll get me one.

How come they don't race the TSR cars?

Pappy, mine has been set up as a sidewinder since the second day I had it.  Runs and handles great as do all the McLaren F1 GTR's.

Butch have you thought about the "Racer" brand cars?  I remember the Daytona Prototypes ran really well as sidewinders.

No, but I have a Sideways Daytona Prototype that is almost running as fast as my NSR Mosler on my track with a motor that is 5,000 rpm's lower than the one in the Mosler

 

I really like the looks of the McLaren F1 GTR.

 

When we go back to Michigan next year I want to have at least four cars that could compete.

Just looking at the cars and knowing what it takes to getting these cars to run I think the Mclaren will be my next car to the Porsche GT1 in all out slot.its. Personally my motor of choice if I stick with the brand is the flat 6 rs and that won't fit sidewinder..

Thanks, Butch

You would think that would change because of the increased performance, but I guess it's a cost issue?

Hi Phil,

 

I've never played with the TSR chassis much but the way these guys get the Slot It and NSR chassis handling on silicone tires is amazing.

Dennis,

 

The flat 6 motor is an amazing motor and it runs for a long time. It probably would be a good motor for the 24 hour race but most of the winning teams use the blue ball bearing Scaleauto motor in a sidewinder chassis. They go the 24 hours with no problem.

The racer Daytona prototypes use Slot It chassis, motors, and motor pods, which is why they run so well as sidewinders. I have several and they are nice and very finely detailed.

I think they call it the "cheater" motor. Best to go what is proven. Do they allow Ny metal bar big? I brace my Slot.it chassis with brass square tube to make it stiff and use magnetic suspension.

No metal chassis bracing is allowed in the Michigan 24.

I just ran this car in our last series. I set it up as a sidewinder with an offset pod. There are some really good racers at our club and I was right in the thick of it through the whole series with this car. Very smooth running car.

Wow, what a good looking field of cars!  Love the the classics too!  I'm actually surprised to see so many SRC's and 917's in the classics group.  I'd take a Fly 512s Berlinetta in this group all day, every day!

 

Boy, I wish NY had an active race scene..

I like all the Slot.it cars. All of the racers with slot.it Group C cars in our club have changed to side winders, including my car in the photo. They handle so much better on our Carrera 4 lane track as a side winder. The tires of choice are "Super Tires" yellow dog urethanes.

i changed my McLaren F1 to a sidewinder. Still have to try it out. The orientation of the motor and a minimal ground clearance will give you more magnetic traction even on a Carrera track.

My only regret is that Slot.it doesn't produce FK-130 motors.

I bought one and got it running pretty good in a sidewinder configuration. But I can't quite get it to keep up with my Sideways Daytona Prototype or an NSR Mosler.

I have several of the F1GTRs, half are the original inline configuration and the rest are anglewinders.  My track is routed mdf and the inline cars turn the fastest laps.  But even faster are my Ferrari F40s.

Have you tried the Porsche GT1s ? I found these to be the fastest of all the Slot.it body styles in anglewinder mode. (Commercial Flat Track, light spray glue)

I want to try another one as a sidewinder.

My quickest slot.it anglewinders are the modern LMP cars with the Lola being a bit quicker than the Audi. My track is home built mdf which used to be totally flat but now has a slight amount of banking on some corners.  No glue at all.  We run soft shore 20 urethanes.
