Finished a car for Nesta.
He painted the body and John Havlicek built the "C"-can motor.
I built the chassis and interior.

Chassis is an ISO with a limiter set screw collar.  Remove the collar and the entire front axle lifts to allow flag adjustments.

3/32" axles with rear axle ball bearing races.  Motor also has ball bearings and gears are 64 pitch.

Nesta always had the skills to do some very nice hardbody paint work. This car is no exception.

 

Jairus, innovative chassis! Shows some thinking outside the box.  :)
