I built this one for the Hillclimb at P1. Duffy nosepiece and bracket. Three rails of .055" wire. 4 x .9". I built it with standard Can-Am jig wheels so you could run F1 sized gears for more gearing options. The original couple chassis I made with small rears just suffered in the gearing department.

Ran very well. I let Marcos Ramos use it as my knees were not up to running another race. As you can see he won and also set fastest lap. I tried it with the Porsche body but it ran the best with this one. Ifter the race I gave it to Terry Tawney to replace that too short one I originally built him.

This one is for this weekend's race at Holly Hill. Same dimensions as the one above but with .063" rails I added a shaker plate up front for bit more nose weight as HH has a kink that drops off as you go through it and did not want the nose to lift out. Will see how it runs this weekend.

Mr. Noose painted it. Spider is off an old Slot Works sticker sheet.

This is the first Can-Am plus I built. Ran well but was hindered with the tiny rear tires and 26 tooth gear to get the motor geared correctly. Noose ran well with it at the Sano until the motor went kaboom.

Short wheelbase and guide lead and 88 grams. No bracket at all just pillar blocks in the back. ab7bd75f242dbfc7b632b7c8ef6d7d9a.jpgc8948a67771643626028ba0a8c4c9b45.jpg78854362e2c1e9a1a7c395e39181dc8e.jpg

I started to build this up for our last Can-am plus race but never finished it till now. It has 6 rails of .047 wire. With a Duffy nose, tongue and bracket. The wheelbase is 4" and guide lead .950". I built the rear same as a Can-am so you can use F1 size rears and get more options with gearing. The cars I made with the tiny tires and 26 tooth Spurs only suffered in the gearing area.

52 grams.image.jpeg image.jpeg

Such a great chassis. I could see a guy in Wyoming spec'd out with his flip phone owning this chassis. Why the guy is a legend in these parts and if only his messenger was not full I could message him to tell him to buy it!

We have one more Can-Am plus race in 2 weeks on P1's hill climb.

I went with a longer 4" wb and .875 guide lead to get through the flat deadman better.

All .047 rails, .040 split pans and .063 outer pans. Bare chassis weight is 47 grams.

Made it to use F1 sized rear tires so I have some options on gearing. My roller skate version I previously built could only use a 26 and motor never was geared right even on a king track.

Tony,

 

Try the new Red Fox Gears . I could get a 28 tooth in the Can-Am plus Ralph ran at the Sano with .760 tires.

 

Just a thought for the Master.

 

Regards

I have used them. The 28 meshes great but I wasn't impressed with the 27 or 29. I don't want to waste them for this class. Lol.

28's mesh great but not the 27s and definitely not the 29s.

 

Got to be careful too with them and the Kofords on stripping the set screw.  Heavy handed yanno. LOL

I have been able to get good gear mesh with all three using arp angled pinions. Noose, you saw the 29 I used in my car at the SANO it was very smooth.

 

Maybe I was just lucky.

 

By the way nice chassis Tony.

Thanks. I'll try again those are the pinions I use. Maybe pinion was funky.
