It has been a long time since I've posted any of my work here on Slotblog.  

 

So, I'll give you all a taste of what I've done recently.

As always great builds Craig.  On the top chassis, does the guide and motor box float?

Yes--- this design has been developed by another BPR Hard Body racer known  as "Gonzo"!  His hard bodies handle great with this design.  Might be interesting to see if it would work in Retro? 


She's real fine, my 409!!!

Yes Dom, the nose piece and motor box do indeed float.

Nice work.

I see the forward stop, but is there anything that prevents the motor from sliding back an 1/8"+?

I tried something like that, 6 or 7 years ago, in F1, because there wasn't a connected main rail rule, like Can Am.

It was pretty average, on my King track.

IIRC, I wadded it up in R4/5 practice.

The motor box moves less than .0625.  The car this is fashioned off moves a bit more.

Rebuilt a chassis for a local racer that was using a double rail .063" and made it into an eight rail .047".

(With apologies to Monty Python)  "And now for something completely different"

 

_Actually, not that different - examination will reveal that all of the usual pieces, functions and actions are represented but translated to the world of 1/32 scale hard body racing.

 

Front and rear chassis sections and pans machined from a single brass sheet

 

gallery_99_685_39019.jpg

 

Webs connecting the parts ae left in place until hinges, pivot etc are installed, assuring alignment.  Sidewinder motor/axle mounts are separate to be soldered into pre-cut grooves.

 

Motor/axle carriers added:

 

gallery_99_685_106080.jpg

 

Resistance soldering - electrode dragged along inside of joint while solder applied to the outside

 

Finished chassis  (front pan webs still to be cut)

 

gallery_99_685_54161.jpg

 

Front axle carrier similar to rear - guide tongue a bolt-on to facilitate adjustment and/ guide change

 

It "twists" and "flops" and goes pretty well.

My take on the Dominator Stalker:

 

Imade the center pan non removable but floating, used a C/L 2 degree tongue and HVR fronts on a Bartos axle

So here is my newest creation. New stock car chassis based off of a dominator and the kamo cars. 055 side rails with the center fork set to float in the bracket. The pans are box tubing and torsion flex at the rear by the bracket. The car is just waiting for a front axle and bearings . Now where did that axle go.......4633480f94c09d05eb852a88a0ded079.jpg

Nice job Chris. Something you can add to help with tuning is some inserts for the box tubing.  You could have aluminum, brass, and steel inserts.  A little blue locktite should help keep any inserts in place and still easy enough to remove.

Take a half inch bit of wire to the track with you to solder in between the tuning fork wires at the rear where they kick out. Should make the chassis better. If you don't like what it does you can just remove it.
