Here is my new Can-Am/Coupe chassis... The Jackal. 

 

Ready to run weight is going to be right around 105.8 grams. Standard build will have a removable center weight (3.8 grams) making it easy to switch/tune between Coupe and Can-Am. The center weight is machined from standard brass while the other pieces are machined from half-hard .064" brass.  

 

Three standard rail configurations for this is .055" inner rails/.062" outside rails, .062" inner rails/.055" outside rails, and four rails of .062".  The last configuration I would only recommend for high speed tracks (like Port Jeff) as it will likely be too stiff on any other track. 

 

There is also a tutorial attached showing how I prep and build the chassis. Suggested retail for these is $65 and discounts available to raceways.

Nice!

 

A well thought out design that should be easy to build without tricky wire bends.

Very nice Dom.

 

Is the stated 105.8 RTR weight with or without the removable center weight and is the motor bracket angled like the Chicagoland or hypoid?

Hi Kevin,

The 105.8 is with the center weight. The motor bracket has a 2* angle like the Chicagoland.

Yes Dennis, 2-15/16" is the correct measurement for the bend in step 8. I'll correct the tutorial tonight and re-post it.

Here is the corrected tutorial for the Jackal.  Only change is to step 8 as Dennis noted for the length of the outside rail for the bend.

Took 2nd overall in coupe at the Retro East race at The Race Place in NJ.  The Jackal was set up with 15/16" guide lead, 3-15/16" wheel base, .055 outside rails, and .062 inner rails.  Race ready it ran at 111 grams.   Also set 2nd fastest race lap.
