That shows a lot of patience making those pans.

I can also attest to how "smooth" these flat track cars are!! I haven't won with mine yet--but I podium'd the only race I ran--with NO weight on it!! For our flat track these babies work better around 110 grams!!


She's real fine, my 409!!!

Thanks Tony--the chassis  ran Very smooth and stable making it easy to drive.  I'll try the new one I got from you  next month with the "anti-decking" spine in it.  On a flat track it's probably not necessary--but in practice I got the times down to the same as this one ran.  So we'll give it a go in November!!

New Can-am to test this weekend. Seven rails of .039 with .039 anti-decking rails.

This one has a shorter wheelbase and longer guide lead. This is the dimension I used on my Aero chassis and the first Octopussy chassis which all ran well at that dimension.

This canam I made for the Raceplaces flat track. The track is usually super glued but jut enough. Taking this into consideration I decided to build a longer chassis to smooth it out and make it easier for me to drive.

Well it worked out well with a TQ and win plus fastest race laps on each lane.

4 1/8wb, 1 guide lead. Main rails are .055 with .040 stockcar split pans. 56 grams pre lead.

Swiss guide, leads, collar and flatted rear axle. Body is Parma Ti22 by Mr. Noose Buds fronts and Kelly rears.
