We have a "stock car" class where you can run stock plastic, or a scratch built chassis. The limitations are a BWNC1 motor and 100g minimum weight. It keeps things relatively even. But the scratch chassis's win every time. I built this car for a friend. These bodies come pre-painted. Now I find myself looking for a Fairlane GT body. It grew on me while building it.

That's lead on both the top and bottom of the chassis to meet the minimum weight. Ouch.

Body sits nicely on the chassis. Interior is just a piece of card-stock taped in place.

Al. I humbly apologize for the mistake. The wheels were given to me along with the rest of the parts for the build so I'm not exactly sure of the source. I guessed wrong.

I chuckled at first when I was handed the 13 inch wheels. I figured out that slamming a car tends to hide a lot of things.

Could it be possible that these wheels are actually closer to scale than we realize?

Hi Ken, Al did a good job in scaling/producing his 15" and 13" wheels,..........the same dimensions are found on the later produced RSSlotracing 15" and 13" wheels.

Both 15's are accurate/scale for cars that actually ran on 15's, and the 13's are scale for cars that ran 13's.

Cheers

Another excellent build. You said the bodies come pre-printed: do you mean the guy that you built it for already prepared the body? Or you can buy them with all ready to be mounted on a chassis?

Thank you kindly, Grunz.

These were pre-painted RTR Carrera brand slot cars. Now with a scratch-built chassis. My friend took the plastic chassis off and handed me the bare body with the running parts.

I think this may be a Revell/Monogram body. I don't think Carrera have done a Fairlane.

Oops. Mr M is correct. I humbly apologize. My newbie status has once again been uncovered. I've only been into slot cars since 2018.

This was a very heavy Monogram body. I'll get the brands correct eventually.
