Ron is a prolific builder and racer at Electron Raceway here in Oregon. He just completed this great looking Ferrari 458 (chassis is modified Scaleauto). Looks too good to race! Below are images of the model and actual car.

Instead of running this beauty at our last Triathlon, Ron ran the nice looking 458 shown below. To see more images of our scale cars check out the Electron Raceway section in Slotblog. To read more and see more images of our latest race, see the link http://slotblog.net/...17/#entry694119

Fantastic car.

 

Are your fronts free-wheeling?  It looks like they are fixed with the set screw.

one is affixed to the axle via a set screw. On the other end of the axle we solder a small washer. In this way one wheel spins freely on the axle while the other is affixed to the axle with a set screw
