OK... what's with this Cox motor mounted on this chassis?

Who did this back in the day?

Those wires are kinda thick!

Is this really that NASCAR motor that devoles 34,000 RPM?

Or is that just a myth!?

I saw one on feeBay it said something weird... you need to oil it ?

I did hook this up to a DC Xfer for second, it did sound dry, but it's been around for a long time!?

 

Thanks,

 

Ted

From the patina in the axle bushing in the second picture, I would oil the motor before spinning it over.

The Cox NASCAR 3500 has to be one of the most commonly found old slot car motor on the planet, and there are still THOUSANDS of unsold NOS out there, from various dealers including REH or Parma. The chassis was likely started in the 1990s, for some kind of "hard body" racing, and was left unfinished for whatever reason.

So I oiled it up and gave it a spin, man that thing spins fast !!!

It's only a chip on the oil cap !

So.....did someone home makes this ?

Or was it made by some company ?

Thanks, Ted

Ready to run from REH that has lost the pans. You can see where the front plumber cross-piece used to be attached.
