Thanks. It’s for one race only. Experimenting is what keeps me building.

That's beautiful! Looks like it's going to be very light for a stocker!

Mike it comes in at 120 grams the track is one blip so I wanted to make a car as light as possible. My aero stocker from 2 years ago worked great there and weighed the same. It’s all straights.

If there was a concours for chassis, this would win it, it's an artistic sculpture in brass and steel :clapping:

New StockCar I finally had time to setup. It’s for the Holly Hill roadcourse race coming up later this year. Going to try it tomorrow.

All .039 wire. The center plate acts as anti decking rails to keep chassis from bottoming in bank but does not restrict twisting flex.

126 grams complete.

Update: I wound up running this on the Holly hill oval this past weekend. It was so straight coming out of the banks and just a micro blip in the kink.

I turned fastest lap and was 3 laps up on the eventual winner with a heat and a haft to go when I taped a back marker going into first bank and.......

Is that 126 Grams with or without the body?

 

Beautiful chassis.
