This is a partial line up, still have 6 to fix up, 

All will be DYNA-REWIND powered, maybe a Certus will be tossed in some where.

Old school brush paint schemes and decals, I like the race car look. nothing fancy.

Waiting for fresh skins.

A thingie body by Gene on a custom piano wire chassis will be one of the three scratch builds I will be doing for sure.  ;)

Very nice Gene! I think I'm going to have a near twin to one of these, since you built it for me many years ago... ! 

 

What kind of rubber is recommended for this track?

Last year I used tuna tires and they were used, no issues, track is smooth with excellent grip, suggest low gearing, say> 4~1+
If the tires on your car appear not correct I can change them out for you, I will have spares.
Oh! Pace Car? It would do very well.
Thanks and good luck.

This is my 1\32 scale of the Shinoda Point No.13, sitting next to the 1\24 Shinoda Point No.5

This body mold was make so you can use the 1\32 Parma brass international chassis with no modifications. You can choose your power plant and test you driving skills.

A weekend  fun project, they are fun to speed around the track and take on the 1\24 group.
