CR023 Premium inline drag chassis.
 
The parts being "dropped" (separated), along with being plated from, IMO,  the premier plater for slot racing parts, provides a kit, truly, ready and easy, to assemble.

 

Say goodbye to rust.
 
Accepts all popular bolt in motors.
 

$29.95 retail each kit (as shown in top pic)

I quickly soldered this together, with just 3/16" tubing inside the bearing holes, and holding the parts with my fingers, and achieved perfect bearing alignment. ( BB's not included )

 

20180511_215222-1.jpg

A mockup of a somewhat finished chassis, with C/R plated .062" piano wire, a Proslot D can, and a pc. of C/R .062 " wire soldered across the top, for a rock-solid motor box.

 

Note; while the combo front wheel body pin tube mounts can be used as one piece, soldered on the outside of the rail, in this pic they are cut in two, and mounted on the inside of the nose piece, for an ultra-clean look, and positioning independent of each other.

 

All solder joints in these pics are achieved without any tumbling or wire brushing.( just wiped down with a damp sponge )

 

( motor, wire, and BB's not include)

The plating and the tall, multiple front wheel mounts, allow for quick experimenting, with additional chassis bracing, with a single, easy bend.

CR028 Economy plated pin tube supports.
 
"Stacked" .050" holes for common thin wall stainless pin tubing like Koford M259, to change the stance/rake on the body, using the same pin hole(s).
 
Note; while the holes on the 2 pcs. are evenly spaced, I think most will cut these up into small pieces.
 
The thin wall is somewhat bowed, up and down, from lasering the thin, non-enclosed section, rail.

They can be straightened with a minimal effort.

 

Once straightened, the holes are 2.00", center to center.
 
Only $6.00 retail, for a zip-loc bag of 3 sets of 2.($2.00 per set of 2 pieces)

CR030-5 & CR030-7 prebent 1/2" spoilers
 
This has always been a popular item for me.
 
Precision bent from the best material, backed with a super-strong double stick tape, are the reasons these are currently used by multiple current top Retro racers.
 
Available in both .005" and .007", they are approx. 3.170" wide, to easily fit the widest Retro bodies.
 
CR030-5  .005" thick $10.50 zip-loc bag of 6
CR030-7  .007" thick $10.50 zip-loc bag of 6

There is 29 new SKU's, but with a lot of slight variations.

Both Eagle and ERI got their orders today, so both are as well stocked with C/R parts, as they ever have been.

 

Remember, support your local raceway, if all possible, or you won't have one.

CR028 Economy plated pin tube supports for body and wheelie bar axles.
 
"Stacked" .050" holes for common thin wall stainless pin tubing like Koford M259, to change the stance/rake on the body, using the same pin hole(s).
 
Note; while the holes on the 2 pcs. are evenly spaced, I think most will cut these up into small pieces.
 
The thin wall is somewhat bowed, up and down, from lasering the thin, non-enclosed section, rail.

They can be straightened with a minimal effort.

 

Once straightened, the holes are 2.00", center to center.
 
Only $6.00 retail, for a zip-loc bag of 3 sets of 2.($2.00 per set of 2 pieces)

Greg Gilbert just informed me these also work great as wheelie bar supports, so I'll edit my description on this.

CR032SB

CR032AT

I listed this elsewhere, but here's how easy it is to bend my angled brackets;

There is really only important to do when bending them.
 
Support the motor face, with some sort of parallel, or near parallel, jaw pliers.
 
The jaws on the one, in the pic, are not serrated, but I still cover them with strapping tape to prevent marring.
 
On pliers with serrated jaws, invest in a cheap pair, and grind down the  points, or tape them up real well.
 
With the plier jaws parallel and overlapping the bending relief, just push up the bearing support side, with your fingers.
 
Once both sides are bent to, or near 90 degrees, you can ditch the pliers, adjust the bracket for squareness, and both left and right bottom surfaces, lay flat on a flat surface, again with your fingers.

 

CR040-14B, CR040-58B, CR040-14G, CR040-58G, CR040-14R, CR040-58R, CR040-14Y, CR040-58Y, 2 color numbers.
 
C/R's exclusive old school font, in 2 colors.

I underestimated the demand for these, when I sent Eagle their first batch, but have since sent a restocking order, that they have now received.
