Moving right...along.... :sarcastic_hand:  

 

Hardest part is done... Chassis designed, parts cut n'bent and on the jig ready to get soldering.

 

4.5" in-line drop arm car. Four .055 spaced with .047 half rails out back and .047 uprights in the front.

target weight- 130gr.

 

 

Turns out, the brass chassis parts are K&B to go with the BobCat motor. :good:

Could this become the fastest recorded stock K&B powered drag car EVER! :crazy:

If you dink you got some-tin mo-fasta .... bring it on. :laugh2:  :clapping:

Got a different one coming for you to try.  Had to put everything else on the side burner and focus on the R&R proxy. Please come again this year.

This one will be built to the same dimensions of a roundy round 4.5" w/ 3/4" GL

 

I might have something to fill the insides of that body

 

Thanks Matt but you better double check your inventory because I think I have most of them from you in that color....LOL

They are so sweet! I wouldn't turn one down if you slip one in on your next batch.

 

BTW, what paint do you use on them? Mix your own colors too?

Chassis is done. Bare weight 27.8 gr.

 

I think 130 gr curb weight might be doable with a FT36D.

Neat looking chassis, Bob! Is black faster than raw brass? :to_become_senile:

Looks like that 'epoxy' paint is the only thing holding it together...lol

3/4" GL

3/32 F axle tube (can be sleeved to 1/16)

.055 main rails

The worst looking of the two used motors has the best tabs,  zero paint missing, not even at the bend. Bend before dry....lol.

Reminds me of running Deathstar motors.. The smooth ones are the best first choice. Went through these and the winner is one of the used Royal BobCat that was in a Champion of Chamblee "Rebel Racer" sleds. 

 

The large mass of lams it's hard to get'em spinning up. Not sure if they peak out before 1.4 seconds. 

 

True tires and pin the body .... done.
