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.

Another Stock Car to test. This one is .039 rails. Ran good when I tried it last week but motor was slow. Going try it today with some horsepower.

They are fun, they take driving since you mostly can’t punch them. Good for us old guys.

Mike, are you still building the same basic 4.5" design that was so successful wherever it ran a few years ago?

Yes although I have added a center pan to the latest ones. Seems to run well either way. This design is basically indestructable!IMG_20131011_230312_514.jpg

Since this thread has gotten semi-hijacked I don't feel too bad about pointing out that my third place car, which was just a 1/4 of a lap behind Terry Tawney's second place TonyP car, is probably the oldest "active" retro chassis being raced today.  I think it was the second or third chassis I built, which was probably around the 2008-9 time frame.  Until just a few years ago it was nearly unbeatable but since then it has been merely competitive and I really have to build a more up-to-date Stockcar chassis.  I have to say that the winning Stockcar that TonyP lent to Brian Ambrose was the fastest Stockcar I've ever seen and clearly deserved not only the win, but also the record lap time and lap total he achieved.  Nonetheless a 10+ year old chassis that is still somewhat competitive means it was a pretty good design.  And hey, the recent results are probably all due to the Chicagoland wighted guide (Thanks Mike S.). :D   Nonetheless I thought it might be interesting to some to see this competitive antique.  And hey, at least I preserved the patina on the top side of the chassis as an indication of it's true age.
