.062" main rails and .055" secondary using the REH motor bracket drilled for Falcon. Also old Cobra guide tongue. Will add body mounts for floating pin tubes next.

Been away from the bench for a bit, had to have retina reattachment surgery in December. Healing slowly so all good so far. I finished the 67 GTO drag car. Pictures show floating body mounts using jewelry making pieces acquired at local hobby shop.9b2f6eee8d7e71b3803620b36223c5f2.jpgd0401fe264bae2077823604526059b9f.jpg852dfbea500bb0f0657ca68a58139225.jpg

Built for a friend, letting him add interior and decals if wanted. Paint by Gary Voegler!

Nice looking build Charles! What motor did you end up putting in this car? I ask because I notice the crown gear is on the left side of the pinion & the can's air flow holes are longer than those of Falcons. :)

That one looks like an FK-180 - not a Falcon class FK-130.

It is a generic fk180 from a Chinese company rated at 21000 rpm. We have a short basement track and only bracket race. Slower cars seem more consistent.
