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!

I keep learning about new Dynamic parts I had never heard of.

I had a Dynamic wire front end on my Classic 470 powered Fairlane, back in the day, but it was a different design, with a spring in the middle.

I thought it worked great.

I built this one for a 'Vintage Open Wheel' series a few years ago, for a modern series, hence the modern motor.

It's my smallest 1/24 scale car, and very twitchy. Won a few races, probably only beacuse the other guys were laughing at it so hard. :)

I guess this is my entry... Dos Banditos.

 

Twins, but not identical twins. All Dynamic except the very nice Gene ZR1 bodies and Paint by Pablo© paint.

Fellas,

 

 This isn't going to be as easy as I thought...there are lots of really nice builds here. It's like comparing apples and oranges

Fellas,

 

 After much consideration, gnashing of teeth and the wringing of hands, I've reached a decision. Each and EVERY ENTRY IS A WINNER !  Each entry represents the skill, knowledge, and the willingness of it's builder to participate and promote our hobby.

Each entry also demonstrates the durability, and the versatility of the DYNAMIC Products.

 

 As a result, I've decided to award a 1st.  2nd. and 3rd. in a "PROMOTERS FAVORITE" Division. Based solely on my personal view, no I'm not an expert, nor do I consider myself a professional. Just someone who really appreciates the vintage slot car hobby and one that hopes to continue to promote the hobby as well as I can...

 

With that My choice for:

1st  Place in Promoters Favorite class go to the DYNAMIC BANDIT (grey rear tires) of JEFF CHAMBERS.

2nd Place    "             "  "          " class  goes to the MUSTANG bodies racecar  car of     TIM WILKINS.

3rd  Place in "            "  "          " class  goes to the  Dynamic Ferrari racecar  of              JAIRUS WATSON.

 

 I have to confess that I based my choices on the "GOTTCHA Factor" that affected me when I FIRST laid eyes on the cars.  

 

Gentleman, once again thank you for your support of the hobby and your participation in the Challenge !!!

Thank you Sir...  I used all original Dynamic parts on both the grey tire car, and the black tire car. I couldn't find another set of Bandit wheels for the other, so I had  to  substitute some NOS 4 spoke black Dynamic rears on the other car.

 

I would like to thank the judges, my team, and all my fans for helping me make this happen! I'd like to thank Pablo for the paint, Martin for the decals, Gene/ZR1 for the bodies,  and various ePay sellers for the help in the building of these cars!

 

Thank you!!! 

 

Rotor
