The blemished unit has been sold.

 

PLEASE, pm me with interest to ensure availability. I will do my best to keep this thread current but sometimes there are delays. No worries here, I just want to be sure units are available before accepting / receiving $$.

 

My last unit sale is pending. Another run of these coming soon.

 

Thanks

Mark

Congrats to SlotBlog member Klibby who won the Colonies Race, was awarded the title of Governor and received a Lateral-G Body Pro pinning fixture. Well done sir.

Thanks guys for the kind words.

 

Jeff, you are still first on the list.

It has been brought to my attention that new viewers may not have seen any photos.

Just tape chassis onto the top. Align the pins with tubing and tighten thumb screws

Close up of pin alignment

Locate the body, pierce the pin holes and repeat.

You can easily add a second set of hole to have alternate body position.

You will get both long and short pins along with the complete Body Pro fixture

Longer side blocks are available for Drag Racers unique body pin locations

For those who might be interested:

I am down to a handful of units left.

 

With my family home care issue it might be a while before I can do another run.

 

Thanks

I resisted buying one of these for quite awhile, but finally gave in and bought one. Now I wonder why I waited so long! It is one of the best tools that I have and I will never do without again!

I was going to anodize mine blue.

I used Marks fixture for the first time and super happy with it . we run on a 140' king up here in London Ontario Canada Thursdays nights with group 10 GTP, always struggled mounting bodies . With Marks tool I was able to mount the body nice and square and got the clearance from the track to the front splitter just right .been going to the track for a year now and won my first race after using the fixture.Can't wait to use it for our big Canadian National Race March 21.

I have 6 units left for those who may be interested. I can fit 4 in a standard box and will ship for the same price as one unit. To the same address of course.  :)

 

Merry Christmas

Here is a real time video showing how easy and fast it is to use the Lateral-G Slot Sport Body Pro fixture.

I did not cover it in the video but using tape allows almost universal chassis fit.
