There has been some chatter about a limited entry Dynamic proxy.

 

I love these so called 'scratchbuilt' cars and bet there are seven more guys on here that do too.

 

From another thread.

 

I'll do this ....

 

Take the plan for the first race to Bill Pinch at The Raceway.biz

 

We could run all in a three track challenge with qualifying. Hillclimb 13.8v, Oval 11v and Drag Strip 14.7v.

1.5 minute per lane on roadcourse and oval. (no-smoke)

Four drivers, 4 cars start and next four come in round robin, driver stays in lane and cars are separated by one so we can 'drift' in the corners and reduce carnage. 

 

I'll enter a car ...

 

 

Eight cars max.

 

All original Dynamic parts including Cast chassis and OEM brass body mounts. 

Any motor configuration that is designed to fit the Dynamic part # used. 

The only thing that can be soldered is the lead wires.

Any body up to 1970

I would include Rick's re-pop parts. OEM is getting difficult to find.

That rule would be:

  • OEM and OEM re-pop brass parts.

Add:

  • Plaques for Cars and Drivers, 3 track winners plaques and 1 overall Champion.
  • Overall gets "The Big Prize". 
  • We might consider modern guides and tires
  • or just go for it old school and put Mylar/Foil tape on the guides for the LASER beam timers on the Drag strip.
  • All cars will be judged for eligibility buy the 8 entrants, with 3 pictures minimum and a list of parts used and posted here on Slotblog.

Big question is gears tho Bob.  I have not found a gear that Dynamic made as a crown that worked well.  Sidewinder gears it seems were fine, it's the in-line crowns they continually messed up.
For now lets just hold to Dynamic and let's what everyone comes up with.  We could later allow Cox gears, or dyed pink Parma a last resort.

But that's up to you.  Just my opinion.

Sorry,

 

Kind of assumed everyone knew Rick B of R-Geo made some re-pop Dynamic as well as other brand products. Nice stuff.

Sounds most interesting! :D

So just to clarify, it's an all bolt together/no solder allowed affair? OEM/repop fixed body mounts etc..

Ruling out slider type chassis,or any other scratchy type ingenuity? :laugh2:

Midwest floating brass pans?

Thingie shell?

Any limits on motor?

Edit* just read above and answered pretty much all questions :laugh2:

GB,

 

Motor Rule: "Any motor configuration that is designed to fit the Dynamic part # used."  

 

So, it would seem that rewinds are okay?

Correct! Dynamic or Dynamic copy.
Ruling out slider type chassis,or any other scratchy type ingenuity? :laugh2:

Yes!  Out.
Midwest floating brass pans?

Not allowed. No after market or one off chassis parts.

Thingie shell?

Yes.. any body anybody likes is allowed. :crazy: 

 

NO Wings, !!! 1970 or before on scale bodies,

Thingies, any re-pop or modified mold repop like OneRay's bodies. Classic, Gar-Vic, Shinoda, Chotie,<sp>

Even blister packaging like those F1' practice' bodies two part epoxy came in BITD. :laugh2:

The Dynamic cast crown gears are ... Dangerous :shok: looking .... the teeth are so sharp you could need stiches.

Actually I've never rushed to try one in 45 years  ^_^ ... look like purple Pinion Eaters.

 

Could they 'work' with modern steel pinions?

At least they came in 48p/44t  :crazy:

 

 - What'da youz guys dink? :big_boss: -............ Dyed Pink is the answer ? :umnik2:

I don't think we want cars with built in problems. Jairus's suggestion of Cox gears is fine. Black Parma if everyone agrees.

Hey Phil,  Is that the $99,000 question ?.... or are we just getting started for $100.. :laugh2:

 

Committee huddle needed on that one.

I see no problem with rewinds.  The limitations are the chassis! 

A hot rewind won't make the car better, just harder to drive.

As for soldering.  Dynamic part numbers 403 and 404 (outrigger pans) came with pintube sections that required soldering in.

Long as the parts all come from Dynamic or are re-popped from Dynamic parts.

Yeah, I just wanted to make sure it was fine for the cars to have a little "Bang. Zoom...."

Thanks, Jairus. 

 

What are thoughts on using Jet Flags and modern rear rubber? Could help a bit with the limited chassis.

Not my Circus Phil.
I don't want to be in charge of the monkeys this time.
But my opinion is that it should be limited to Dynamic parts only.  Rubber is whole'nother thing however because while guides are still out there, rubber does dry up.

Looks good to me, that appears to be a brass front end by Dynamic :good:

Looking through the Dynamic stash for suitable bits for a possible build...
Hmmm, padlock? Open frame? Can? Decisions decisions.
