Anywhere you can get instructions or a layout showing where parts go to build unassembled newer version Red Fox GT12 chassis? Can look at pics of assembled ones but would be much easier with some instructions/location of parts to be assembled.

Thanks,

Tim

Just looked at Assembled chassis on Pacific Slot Cars website up in Washington and looked at Scotts PCH website, these are for the RedFox GT12 chassis and got 2 differant assembled cross members rear of chassis with parts reversed on each chassis. Trying to install this chassis which way is the right way to install the cross member and attach the parts. Not only is the cross member turned over and installed differant also the slotted small parts are reversed on the center section and the pans. What is the proper installation of these parts. Redfox are you available to show a picture or instructions, please chim in and help solve the puzzle ? of your chassis. I do not want to proceed until I get it the way it was designed. Forgot to add missing a part for the guide piece, instead gave me an extra front pin tube part. Oh well I can make it work on that part missing. ? 

Thanks for any help from anyone who uses these chassis. Big race coming up and want to start using these cars.

Tim,

I have an assembled RedFox GT12 chassis. I'll get you some pictures early tomorrow.

I'm not sure how to post pictures here; may need to send me your email and I'll send them to you that way.

Tim... Not sure how to get the rust off... But to keep it from rusting. You probably already know, but I've had a couple guys ask why my stuff don't rust up. I use the same oil I use for the axles, a couple drops on my finger and wipe down the chassis at the end of the day. The biggest culprit seems to be finger prints causing rust, probably from sweaty hands at the track. I just keep a thin layer of the axle oil on it at all times.

Good morning Perry,  I just use the Champion axle oil that comes in the little bottle with the needle applicator.. If you need a picture of the bottle let me know, I'd be happy to send it to you.

1st rule is don't let the rust start! (very hard to do)  In europe chassis get washed and scrubbed with water & a cleaner like "Zoro" (not available in US) a tooth brush and scrub brushes.  It's similar to comet, zud or bar keepers friend but less abrasive.  Chassis is oiled and I wrap mine in a paper towel and then a ziploc bag.  The acid flux rusts them like crazy.

Perry... Looks like I've moved on from the Champion, now using Epic.. I'm guessing about any of the oil would work for you.

Go remove the rust without screwing anything up, pull the motor and tires, and soak in this stuff. Use as directed.
