Fantastic photos. I especially enjoy the "tech" graphics that highlight the latest chassis design changes.

 

As an aside, I wonder how the ES24 & 32 chassis would change if they had to carry front wheels like F1 (my biggest complaint about ES BTW).

Very interesting! Those ES cars are essentially wing cars with the body and chassis they use.

Awesome stuff!
 
To think all the winning cars did it with normal lead wire without epoxy, shrink tubing, or any other sorcery.  :D
 
FWIW Casey's leadwire is really nice.

Looking at the results, TQ in ES32 is about a 4.5 while a TQ in F1 is about a 5.4.

So there you go - not directly comparable but nearly a second slower +/- with front wheels.

Are you saying that you want front wheels on all cars?

I think the much higher downforce of the ES body has more to do with this than than the fronts.

Not to mention that the F1s are inline motors and the E32 sports cars are anglewinders...


So much DRAMA for such small cars....

Well sort of, but the chassis have a center hinge, the bodies have no added wings, and they are driven on a flat track. :)

I understand all the differences, I was just using the comparison as a rough gauge.
 
And yes, Ron, front wheels on cars in the class that was originally conceptualized as "scale" is exactly what I was thinking (see next post).

This was a car I built in, say, '91-92.  It is a "Wods" chassis, which appears to be an "homage" to Mossetti's chassis.

 

At any rate, note that it came with front pillow blocks for an actual front axle. This was just before ES went to floppy fronts.
