Full disclosure, this is the very first angle-winder F1 I ever built.
I followed a design by Bob Emott and I think his was built around a C can motor, but the customer wanted a Champion 16D installed which made fitting the body over the chassis a bit problematic.
Even so, it came out okay.

Here are the bits I started with:

Motor box bent and built as tightly as possible.

Completed center section.  My wing-man approves.

Paint on the body and chassis done.
Just need to get both to fit together.... somehow.

Hi Jairus

Full disclosure, this is the very first angle-winder F1 I ever built.

 

If you hadn't said anything - no one would ever know!

 

Excellent job - as usual!

 

Thanks for sharing Jairus.

I love this type of build, it brings back a lot of horrible memories of rear end chatter & bounce, launching in the bank but most of all my favorite type of can motor, endbell drive champion. If Anyone ever proposes to race stuff like this and I can get there I'll bring several cars with black can champion motors. It was a pain to herd these cars around the track but I'd do it all over again given the chance. I have several Thorp blanks from the old days that would be period correct for these motors that would be period correct wound with 26 sgl. 25 sgl and 27 sgl.

 

I'm excited by this build keep it up!.

Really cool!


A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Love that you used a Cox spur gear. I was using the modern (sorta) pink Parma on my restorations, but I have found a source for the old grey Cox gears (PCH Hobbies) and will start changing them back to original style. For me, using original parts is the pre-requisite for building a recreation of a famous car.

 

 

Oh, and what on earth is cuter than a kitten. A baby maybe? But they come out all wrinkly and stuff.

Very cool build. I don't remember these being the chatterboxes that some have talked about on slotblog. I just remember them being very fast F1 cars, compared to the inlines. I'd be interested in hearing about how it performs, after it's gotten some track time.

Any anglewinder with a powerful motor that isn't braced to the chassis well opposite the gear end will chatter and bunny hop, period.

Bracing is critical as you say, it's just that the guys at Jack's Raceway (me too) all struck open C can motors in them. Some of the guys put open C can motors in Womps too, not recommended, especially on an original American Orange track.

 

Anyhow on a rough track like that one the F1's of the day did hop quite a bit but we were getting things sorted out when the track closed right after a USRA race.

 

Off subject, I recall there being a SoCal division race once a month in those days and even in the 80's when there was a lot of traveling back & forth to race. Does any division still have USRA racing monthly or is that over and done with?
