This has turned out to be a surprising good item for me.

The superior retention of a nylon nut, but lathe trimmed, to the height of conventional low profile nuts.

I finally got enough trimmed and dyed, to get them out to distributors.

$5.88 retail for a bag of 6.

Of minor note, on the black nuts, the trimmed side is left white.

Alao, on the dyed ones, the dye doesn't take quite as dark/deeply, on that trimmed side.

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)
 

20180511_215401-1.jpg

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.
 
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.
 
Only $6.00 retail, for a zip-loc bag of 3 sets of 2.($2.00 per set of 2 pieces)

Mike,

 

What's the dimension between the pin tube holes on CR028?

Centerline to centerline, 2.00", F-R.

 

Approx. .075", top to bottom, on the stacked holes.

 

The thought on those was to change the stance/rake on the body, using the same pin hole(s).

I don't know if this is the place to say good things about Mike's new plated chassis but I got mine today and it is a quality piece of work. If you have any doubts just buy it, you won't be sorry.

 

Thanks Mike!,
