What is the difference between the PSC jigs 2002 tuning fork version and PSC 2011 top of the line jig? Quite a price difference ( on the PCH web site) and looks like they are almost the same except for the tuning fork holes. Wanting to build retro F1, Can Am and Anglewinder.

Off topic but....

 

I contacted PSC in 2010 with a request for him to offer a jig that could work with the Champion Turbo flex,  JK C7, and C-11 series (C21,X25,x24) he declined. In 2012 I again requested a Retro Jig with more rail options similar to what Rgeo Rick  had available.  He had 0 interest in doing so. I assume this is because he would rather us buy several jigs from him instead of just one.

Gary: I think you'll be happy with the Backtrack jig. And just from my experience at DSC would recommend you not go down the tuning fork path if your target is DSC flat track. Too many fiddly bends that introduce too much inconsistencies. Never had one that justified the extra work. And the forks fill up space where weight can be placed for tuning. Check out the DSC facebook page for pics of recent winners. Oh, ignore Ken Steven's (Milkman)CanAm car. Nobody really knows how that thing works with all the flex points. I suspect Ken is some kind of wizard.

Ken has been building great handling chassis since the early 70's. I raced with Ken & his dad Al when he lived in Massachusetts back then. In those days he also had some very good John Thorp arms.

Flexy chassis.
