I plan to build a chassis for it :)

Looks to be a Shinoda "Bullet" there's one in one of Genes threads :)

Genes World thread with this body?

Steve O / Arodyn made a special chassis for this car. http://slotblog.net/...thingie-tyro-2/

 

I have a precious signed copy.

Make it mine.  :heart:

That is beautiful and every one I have ever seen (which is not many) if just as fine. :clapping:

I have one and it's the the gold standard of my collection along with Tony P's chassis and Jairus' paint work on my Stinger.

The body in my photo has been identified as a Shinoda Bullet replica, but is definitely not a Gene/Z1R body.

Not stealing your thread. 
Simply would like to show a Bullet I built last fall and entered in the Thingy proxy last December.

Chassis is a Detroit Slider.
Motor, wheels and motor bracket are Dynamic.

Glad you posted it, brings up an important question -

Are the rears supposed to be like yours, to the rear, outside -

or, like Steve's, up forward and covered?

My car is a slider Paul.  Meaning the motor, wheels and tongue slide forward shortening the wheelbase during acceleration.  So the wheelbase looks a lot like Steve's car at that point.

The rear body support, outside framework, front wheels and body are all one.
I know it seems counter-intutive.  You have to hold one of these in your hands to totally understand.

My question remains, where should the rear wheels be?

Could this body have been pulled by ED from one of the molds the LASCM got from Tom Scott along with several chassis years ago?

Who knows?

 

I found a photo of dc-65x's method on a Bullet he made for Thingie King Edo.

His rears were almost, but not completely, covered.

The fronts look like they are at the very forwardmost edge of the wheel wells.

So I'd guess he made his WB 4.00".

It's a Thingy Paul.
The wheelbase can be whatever you want it to be.  There are no rules on how the body is mounted.

IMO this body was designed to be an open wheel car. Like many other thingies and Shinoda  cars of that time.

 

Look forward to your build either way.

Thank you. I changed my mind (again) after conversing with Gene/Z1R.

Onward...... :)
