This thread is for the purpose of showcasing the entries for the SHINODA Reunion Event as mentioned in Race Announcements.

I enter as a tribute to the work and legacy of this incredible and genius artist of the automotive persuasion...Larry Shinoda!

My entry this event is intended to make a POINT in the Period Correct class.

Behold....

I always say when you go racing, go prepared with some backups  :laugh2:

 

Build them low with Detroit iron in mind, and with science, persistent racers. A extreme controller is a must, I always use the 1966,  R4 controller. If the exposed controller resistor gets smoking hot your motor has problems.

 

If your going to race period correct cars use a period correct controller, test your true racing skills. I get to race once a year, no tracks close by.

 

Enjoy; g  :to_become_senile:

I am hoping to build a car again this year, but so far it's only in the planning stages.
Got a lot of business I need to finish before playing. :)

But I got the POINT! :D

I believe the poster was generated by the promoter Elliott.

It was on Facebook.

Hi Guys was hoping to send my Shinoda Gp & possibly a Shinoda Mongoose in for the reunion (if funds allow).
I wrote a bit of info about it on the slot car thingie facebook page here is a link
https://m.facebook.c...944798545598302

I also have The Pink Panther Mongoose from Tom Scotts collection & was also thinking about sending that in just for display as it's on a Champion anglewinder chassis.
Thanks Tom

Here's my entry. (Some assembly required)
Just too many jobs ahead of it and... bills to pay.
Still, few months left.

Since there are curious minds, let's now look "under the hood" so to speak of my entry.

Built at GenesWorld using back-n-the-day "science" by the Master Craftsman himself Gene Adams.

After coming in last, last year, I need a change of equipment to enter the "Period Correct" class this year.

Hence the Iso-Rear-Pinned Chassis!

Hmmm, I wasn't sure I would have time to enter this year, but that last chassis of yours Jairus, reminds me that I found a Detroit Slider type chassis with a 26D that wails (if it survives), so maybe I could put that together for this year... 

 

I think I even picked out a body for it already....

My car and the penny are 2018 models, but secret motor might make the difference.

LINCOLN remains the leader!

"M-m-m-my Shinoda"  coming right along.

 

A few more details on the chassis and then on to painting.

 

The chassis started life as a drag chassis. I made a few blanks about 28 years ago and never got around to finishing them all.

This one was modified to let the guide flag move freely for a road course.
