I was sorting though some odds and ends yesterday and came across this set-up.

 

Can anyone please tell me what it is?

 

The cut-outs near the screws are almost square.

In my opinion, the can is definitely a later Pro Slot can; I have several of them.

 

The endbell I cannot ID conclusively.

Personally, I don't know. A friend of mine, who is a long time Koford sponsored driver, says it's a Cahoza.  :unknw:

I'm not 100% sure, it almost looks like a Cahoza. The endbell is similar to Cahoza "Assembled endbell for c-cans" or it is in fact that one.

But methinks the can is a Pro Slot.

After taking a gnander through my multiple motor boxes, I'm going to retract my original opinion: this can doesn't match the can I was recalling.

The only Cahoza product I ever bought was a few of their TiN-coated 3/32" axles, so if it is Cahoza I can't confirm it.

Pro Slot and Cahoza use the same bolt pattern on their endbells so it could be a Pro Slot can with a Cahoza endbell.

I was going through the PS catalog and I'm 95% sure this is your SET-UP.
 
It may have a Cahoza endbell but they are essentially the same in a lot of ways.

I don't think so, Robert.

 

A little searching brought up these clearer pics of the Pro Slot PS-749SRS can:

 

From PCH's website:

From Hobbies Plus NZ website.

The fuzzy Pro Slot pic seems almost certainly to be the same can:

The PS-749SRS can has two different style 'ears' for the endbell mounting screws. As best I can tell, Zippity's unknown can has only one style of ear.

In the fuzzy PS pic I was for sure that was it but the other pics you found prove otherwise.

 

I'd like to know if the pattern is P/S-Cahoza stuff or something else. Although I still believe its a P/S or Cahoza setup.

Okay, my friend, the Koford-sponsored driver and former track owner from 1996-2012, says this is an early Cahoza. He said Pro Slot came along later and copied Cahoza's design but he said the steel wasn't as good in the Pro Slot and so the can didn't work as well. Pro Slot copied a Cahoza design.
