Here is a new chassis I made for a customer to run in the Florida GRRR series at Holly Hill and the Hillclimbs at P1 and Melbourne.
 
Four rails of .047", wire my favorite rail combo, and .039" wire pans for strength. Back is the Duffy F1 bracket which is set up for a 3/4" wide center section.  
 
Weight comes in at 50 grams with the center plate, which is also out of the Duffy F1 kit.

All that is left is to set it up as a RTR with a Noose-painted body.

Nice!  My driving has improved such that I don't kill cars in every race.  Been waiting for skillz, then hope to join GRRR in 2016.  Yes, I will drive TonyP cars when the opportunity meets chance.  (What a tease - I should grab this - still not ready)

They come and go but there is only one Tony P.

Everyone of your chassis  I see I say I want one, man I am sick.

Tony, do you think that GRRR could support a RTR car class? I will run one of these RTR cars if you have it ready for me at Holly Hill.

Hey, if I do well, I will buy it!

Nick, you know he puts them up for sale sometimes, right ? 

I saw one on eBay recently and was drooling on the keyboard.

Just wanted to feel it in my hands and "have" it. Like a trophy wife :D

Doc, I think you got it wrong. Its for a RTR for a customer to race in the GRRR series.

... words of wisdom ...

 

You can't go wrong with a Tonyp chassis and a Noose body to cover it.

The old forum I stopped posting on because it was a pain having to use photo bucket. Now its easy. What I was planning is having a few threads and post chassis in those areas, Can-am Can-am Plus, NASCAR, F1 which will be newest stuff plus one for Older Stuff and one for Failures.

Legends like Tony P don't need no stinkin' subforum to be famous.

But we're glad he's here :dance3:

 

Years ago, Jay Kisling (RIP) won an R4 F1 race with a Tony P chassis.

I didn't know Jay at the time, and I worked up some courage asking him for a look at it. 

He was real nice and handed it to me.  Holy Cow !  Lots of interesting little things going on with that chassis. :swoon:

That was back in the "swing up and out" motor mount days :)

I have a Tony P chassis and when I got I slept with it.

 

It didn't put out in bed but sure did put out on the track! :shok:

I didn't know that. Yeah, some might think of my comment as some sort of complaint, but I am just glad that all his new builds will finally be in one place. I had little doubt that Greg and PDL before him would have offered TonyP his own space. I just imagined he didn't want one.

Perhaps, Tony will start a thread where people can post pictures of his builds from the past, old and new. And he can chime in if he chooses about what he was trying accomplish with a given build, if he deems it worth pointing out...or maybe not....

The failures would be the most interesting to me, especially if there's some commentary on what it was or wasn't doing that made it a failure.

The only way any Tony P frame is a failure is if it is a turd on the gutters.

Most cars run great on the middle lanes. What really makes Tony's stand out is how really good they are on the gutter lanes.

Pablo here is that f1 of jays you saw. It was also the chassis won my first retro race with. Jay used it in a lot of races. 809acea6b9af74b39b498427262fe93a.jpg86af95960d49555959a7411799045f0d.jpg

The "Jay's" F1 looks like the front axle (in a tube) is attached to the pans so they float on the track.  :shok: :)

That's my car. Thanks Tony P it's awesome. I thought it was ready for a motor change because of a lack of brakes after 3 races but turned out to be a broken wire on my controller. Three time Concours winner also.
