This is just a build off? Not a proxy race?

Nelson,
Yep, that's how they did it for the GE motor.

I'm not sure if it was a clearance issue, or it was just done for the "Wow factor".

I'm trying to wrap my head around the concept of a Dynaflex rear end for sidewinders.

Either that thing had gear bind in the Bank, or it didn't do much Dynaflexing. Lol

PM sent.

Fellas,

 

FRIDAY MAY 15 will be the CLOSING DATE for entries for the DYNAMIC CHALLENGE II, so far we have SIX ENTRIES.  The May 15th date still gives us some more time to finish, build and submit entries.

 

Winner will earn bragging rights 'til next time !

Yeah, built it a few years ago, but too busy with customer projects to build ANYTHING of my own.

Enjoy.

I even installed the Dynamic Roller Bearings from this package.

The car is 100% Dynamic, except for the Havlicek wound arm in the motor.  Even the motor-can was originally a purple Dynamic bit.

Respectfully submitted,

Here's my entry, no not a new one I'm afraid, but a battle-scarred veteran. Yes, I know that chunk of lead screwed to the bottom isn't very pretty, but wanted to show it as raced. When I brought it to the track, it braked sideways. So I went to a lower numerical gear ratio and added the lead, which pretty much solved the problem. The GE motor is a torque monster! That's a Corvette Grand Sport Roadster, made by Eureka Petite GP... 

 

Pretty simple layout, all Dynamic except for the soldered on tube body mounts. I wanted to try one of these Dynamic front ends, but wouldn't recommend using it stock like this - it really didn't like the tighter corners, and if I ever race it again, will try to tighten that up or use something else. 

 

The big AJ's soft silicones on the rear helped a lot, however!

Fellas,

 

 More entries are coming in and things are heating up...we're considering several winners due to the various classes of Dynamic builds entered so far.
