Fellas,

 

 Is the 1/32 K&B chassis the same as their 1/24 scale chassis ? 

 

Thanks you,

No, it's quite different.

 

I can post side by sides if you like.

 

The 1/32 also came with the K&B and Aurora logo on it depending on home set or kit car.

Joe,

 

 Thanks for the info. Then I imagine the photo above based on the length of the wheelbase is the 1/24 chassis ?

Yes, yours is the 1/24. One big difference is no drop arm on the 1/32. That's how you can tell right away.  

 

Heres a side by side.

This particular 1/32 is the Aurora as shown on the chassis with the press on wheels. The K&B used threaded axles.

 

One note of trivia, the 1/32 uses H.O. track pins to secure the motor. 

 

Not many people know that. 

 

I've have a bunch of built and project cars with the 1/32 and 1/24 chassis if anyone wants to see.

 

These chassis work great. Don't be afraid to use them.

 

Also, the K&B tires work awesome on commercial tracks. 

 

Just a light sanding and away you go.

 

Let me know if you need parts or more info.

Joe,

 

 Thank you very much for the side by side comparison. I have to look through my stash and see if I have one of these or the other >

Also it is interesting to note that the different scale motors have the axle holes placed at different heights.
