The four rails of .047 really seemed to work well thru the doughnut and top turn. The car really seemed neutral I was running JK untreated mid hubs it seemed to need more motor I'm going to try Ferrari 712 body as well as nn ti22

They look good, Guillermo; straight-forward and uncomplicated usually works best!

:) Nice build Preston!!!!  One thing I would suggest is to add braces to the motor bracket.  With the narrow bracket and long axle tubes they bend very easily.

Agreed, a nice interpretation of a "familiar" design! I need to start investigating this multi-rail concept.

 

Let us know how it works.

Where's the fun in that? That's like the Evil Overlord forsaking his requisite fifteen minutes of triumphant monologuin' and immediately zapping the hero to plasma. Roll credits. C'mon, y'think we're gonna pay for the sequel? TURN THAT PUPPY OVER.

There is tiny movement in the F1 car. But Can Am is all flex from my proven previous ride! We will see,

Rgeo kit

 

8 total rails of .047

minimal shaker movement

3.975 wb

Then I had to rebuild my Samson, so i took a different main rail approach... 53CD7AFD-16AD-4D84-AF4C-43B7AB79CF47-974

 

1.062 1 .055 on each side... also cleared up the rear braces.
