Looks sweet Barn. Were you able to take care of my oversight with the com hitting the brush hardware? What was the final choice for gear ratio?

Great news Barney. I was bumming about Team Cort maybe not running an "H" motor. Glad it's sorted!

This was hooked up with the backup motor running 6.014 on red and I was not really pushing it. It was full punch in the donut on red as well. ! With the race motor it will be a couple 10's faster. Thank you John for the motors, Joe for the parts, to Ray for the cool Point bod and thanks to Billy Bob for the awesome paint job! Now to get it cleaned up and sent. (And thanks to Pablo for being so patient....and for the first offer of parts)

This chassis design came from our old Dinosaur races we had on our American Black back in the 80's. It's kind of a flippy, floppy, half Flexie design where the body and front wheels float on the main chassis by the front axle tube.

No worries Barn, I told Mike Swiss to let it be until Rays and your car arrived and I posted them same as the others. Once all the cars are here (5 or 6 left to arrive) I will have him pin it and lock it. Prob the same for the tracks thread so as we continue to banter on the comments thread, we can refer to the cars and tracks. :)

I forgot to add the chassis top shot... Flippy, Floppy, kind of Flexie..... The screws adjust the up stop.

Thanks for posting the top pic.

No respect at all to the more ornate builds, but your car has a real

Thank you Mike. I told myself I wanted to "hit" the 150 gram mark and it came out 149 so by the time I bulletproof the PETG (:shok:) body it will be about 155gr. It worked well at BPR and back in the 80's on our American Black track and was able to take hits well....so I hope it will work good on average at all the different tracks we will be "flying around" in this event!

When Jairus posts pics you will also see the chassis as it is now as this shot was early in the build.

Tested the car for the last time with the 59t 29 wire motor I had "Strong Arm" John H build for me and it was faster then the backup motor I ran yesterday! It has brakes, torque and RPM's. I had to switch to black Pro Track tires because it was faster. It's ready! I can relax!

I hope it runs and I hope it arrives on time. Just painted today and I have to finish the decoration and give the chassis a final cleaning. I hope to test it tonight. Sits like a 4X4 and has no pans. Lets see what happens.





Where can I find a brass tounge like the one on this car? Is it a Dynamic part?

All the cars entered are way kool.

Thanks,
Marty

Thanks! I had "Dynamic" on my watch list for a LOOONG time and never found one. Not that it has been several months since I was seriously looking, you find one for me.

Thanks again,

Two more entries received today and hopefully, after full forensic examination, I hope to post them to the "Cars Thread" tonight.
Brings the total to 20, with 4 or 5 still in transit.

They only had about a year to prep....... :rolleyes:

Extend the deadline another week and watch them rebuild their cars again and again..... :angry:

Always busting chops huh?
Yeah, some waited for the last minute... it always happens. Two of them, received today by the way, were built during the last few weeks because they JUST HEARD about the proxy and wanted to play too!
So there!
Pablo, you built your car before we even started talking about this... please be patient.

Edo's car was not finished because the man was busy with "out of the office" photography. We will give him a pass and have his car join us for the second leg.

As for the track counter, I purchased the hardware last Friday.
Was not in the mail today so maybe tomorrow. I am not going to get too worried about it. :)

I think this is way fun and I checked out all the cars in the other tread of yours, lots of nice rides I sure hope they find their way down here in Southern Cali? ;)
It must be a lot of work to arrange a proxy like this, I sure wish you all the best in this venture.
