Hi Bob:

Thanks for the response(s) and I'm fine with all.  I'm planning on submitting a car so it should be fun.  BTW...  Maybe I missed it but is there a closing date for submitting a car?

 

That is Great Jay ! 

 

No date set yet as there will need to be more entries committed to  make it happen.

Bob, 

 

For a December 2015 date, I'll worship at the Dynamic altar.... 

 

Six months to bolt together a chassis is about my speed!

Did you have to kneel at the drivers panel?   

 

I never did understand what a raceway was doing in a church. There were no "kneelers" in the basement, but I was brought up Protestant anyway. :laugh2:

Have to go to confession after what you said after getting 'walled' in the bank ... twice.

 

"That little Beeb-ing son of a Beep-ing Beep bent my best stuff" ... oops. :shok:

Thanks guys...

I was just thinking about which motor carrier I want to use...was wondering if the Mabuchi 36 size sidewinder setup is a bit wide though? I also have a 26 size sidewinder setup...hmmm...

 

 

I guess I need to go back and look...are we building to 3" or 3.25" max width?

Since these cars might represent a car that you either built or wanted. 

 

Not built to any race series specs.

Many of the repop bodies are wider than originals.

Getting a SW to 3" is 'tricky'

 

With that - 3 1/4" seems to be the logical answer.

Those un-tied doubles turned self tying winds have a tendency to just stop abruptly without smoke  .... ' check'n see if the back wheels can still turn" :laugh2:

John H. doesn't think the vintage silver wire is worth its weight in gold .... :huh:

Thanks Bob...

I have a pair of "previously owned" side pans, that someone had soldered the pin tubes into...now I won't need to remove 'em...

 

edit: is this correct? one of my concerns is about loose parts / pieces that can either fall off on track, in the heat of battle...or...during maintainence...this is one area IMO a little soldering should be o.k.(unless ya'll have a better way of retaining the pin tubes in the pans? I never liked the little screws into the brass method of mounting the body)

 

 

 

I also have a 17T of 23 ga. arm wound by Mr. H...so I guess I'm all set, huh? :D  

 

On a slightly more serious note... :crazy: ...I recall Prof Fate saying that a S16d is much like a '68 ish "work-alike" in perf. sort of wind...soooo...
