It's a JK Hawk with a Trinity heatsink on it.

If you are talking about the Aero in Post 7, then at that time that was a TSR motor with the Trinity heatsink that Tony just mentioned.

Just off the jig.

New eight-rail Can-Am chassis.
War Beaver nosepiece, tongue, and bracket. Eight rails of .047" wire, .047" wire pans. Bud's front axle with nuts. 46 grams.

Should be excellent on higher speed King tracks and fast Hillclimbs.

Made this for next month's race at Holly Hill, going to try it at the Hillclimb this weekend and get some run in time on it. Six rails, .039" wire, Duffy tongue, bracket, pans, and cut down Duffy GTC center pan. 4" wheelbase and .850" guide lead.

I ran a car like this last time at Holly Hill and was second qualifier and finished second, my best effort on that killer track for me.

Update: Doc Dougherty used this chassis to win the season final GRRR series can am race at Fast Eddie's Hillclimb. Doc also broke the lap total record by over a lap in the process. So it ran pretty well.

Probably my race car for our GRRR final this weekend. Duffy nose, tongue, pans and bracket. I spaced out the outer rail for more flex with out having to go to thinner wire. 4"wb, .850 guide lead,image.jpeg image.jpeg

This ran excellent I was able to TQ on Fast Eddies hill climb and set a new track record. I did not feel so well and only ran a heat and a half in the main but car was killer.

Built this up for our Christmas gettogether on the closest thing we have in Florida to a flat track, the Holly Hill monster.

I used the new Duffy 7/8" bracket and .032" guide tongue. Center pan is from Duffy F1 kit and Duffy .025" pans. Six rails of .039".

I used a car like this last time for my best ever qualifying and finish, so this should be good too...LOL.

Three main rails of .055" wire.
4" wheelbase.
Duffy NASCAR style bracket.
Duffy .032" steel tongue.
.025" pans.
Bud's front axle.
Ball bearings in rear
.53 grams.

I built this to try at the Hillclimb in Melbourne and it was quite good. Brian Ambrose used it to TQ and win the Can-AM main.

.039" rails, Duffy NASCAR bracket and guide tongue, Bud's fronts and axle. Parma narrow nose Ti22. It came in under 100 grams so we had to add a tiny piece of lead to make it legal.

I ran a car like this on a Hillclimb where it ran really well. It was great through the off-camber deadman and up the donut.

Five rails of .047" wire split with a split bite bar tube. Bracket is a Duffy F1 and tongue is a Duffy. Pans are my last pair of Duffy .025".

A couple of chassis I am going to test at P1 today.

An older short wheelbase .039" chassis
A copy of the one that Brian Ambrose won the last GRRR race with.
A super flexi .032" chassis.

Actually on P1's hillclimb it was the best one. Lots of bite. Went through the deadman really well.

Update on the .032" chassis. Ran it last weekend. It was very good after I put a thin piece of lead on the back of each pan. It had great bite, especially off the turns.

I tried it with a narrow and wide nose Parma Ti22 and it was best with the narrow nose. Again a much better car than I am capable of driving. LOL.

Something to test at Holly Hell this upcoming weekend. Sixteen rail .047" flat wire. 52.8 grams. It's on the stiffer side but that's what I wanted for our "flat track."

Duffy F1 bracket and .032" guide tongue. Bud's axle and BB fronts.

Tony, you are building some really good chassis. The Can-Am chasses that you show in posts #2 and #57 are the ones I got from you. They still run awesome and I have been using them since I got them from you.

See you at Holly Hill.

I had a lot of success on Hillclimbs with chassis with all the weight centralized and very light pans. I never tried a "Beaver" version, so I thought it was about time. Going to try this at the Hillclimb at Fast Eddie's, site of our next GRRR race.

Nose is left over from the Retro East Enduro batch of parts as is the bracket that Bryan made up for me. Tongue is a chopped up Chicagoland and front axle is a Buds.

Main rails are .063" and pans .047".

4" wheelbase, .90" guide lead.
Center pans is .032".
54 grams.

It was really good at Holly Hill. I was second qualifier. I was running on the top three which is good for me on that track. On red I lost a lot of laps in wrecks that were not my fault and wound up fifth. I think it was the best car I have ever had on that track. Very satisfied with it.

I'm thinking I will have you build one like that for me. Stiffer is better for the tracks up here. Bud's axle and front wheels installed please. Let me know when it is ready and I will PayPal you.

Another take on a center weight Beaver tripod. All rails are .047" wire. Center pan is .025". Bud's front axle, Chicagoland tongue, Duffy nose piece and old style Duffy bracket lightened. The wheelbase is 4" and guide lead .850.

53 grams which should setup at 102 grams. Think it will be good on Fast Eddie's hillclimb next weekend.

Tony I enjoyed your build video and got a lot of great tips from it. Thanks for doing that.
 
I'm wondering what iron you use? Where can I get one?

Glad you enjoyed it. I use the Hakko FX601 I get on eBay. Not sure if any slot dealers carry them.

Best iron I have ever used. Turn the temp adjustment all the way up and let it rip.

I watched them twice since I found them on YouTube. First time was for enjoyment, second time for their content to see what I missed the first time  

Nice job, Tony... You can teach an old dog new tricks. :laugh2:

Nize!

 

 I watched most of your chassis build video and you talked about chassis flex. There was background noise and I could not understand what you said. Would you care to give your thoughts on chassis flex here? Thanks Tony.

Basically, the chassis flexes 2 ways. Twisting and up and down ( push down on the motor while it's on the test block). The twisting flex gives you traction in the corner while the up and down flex is traction off the corner. Think of a dragster it triee to drive the rear wheels under the car as it accelerates.

You can have a chassis that is pretty soft twist wise but stiff up and down and it will be loose off the turns. Back years ago when every one was using .078 mono rails or dual .063 rails I built the first .047 multi rail chassis to try the replicate the flex we could get up and down and twisting with steel center sections. Those first multi rail cars did what I was expecting and were killer. Now everyone pretty much is using some form of multi rail cars made of thinner gauge wire to control the 2 movements.

Jimmy "the Kid" Williams used his tonyp RETRO EAST 6 hour enduro Beaver chassis at the R4 to make the CanAm main and challenge for the lead until he broke. The kid is amazing!IMG_5864.JPG

My back up race car for this weekends GRRR series race at Holly Hill.

18 rails of .039 wire, .025 pans and a Duffy prototype nose piece. Duffy 2 degree steel tongue.

I went shorter on this one as that is what seems to work on that track when the bite is good. It was good in practice last week, just needed more motor.IMG_0098.JPG IMG_0099.JPG

This was a chassis Duffy and I were working on before he passed. The idea is to center the mass down low around the motor. I dug out the center and finished it up this week and I'm finally going to try it.
Center pan is .032 and brass pans in back on floppies is .040. .063/.047 main rails and it comes in at 51 grams. 45d8ad45d6c668288fcf29d6e370d9be.jpg
