'37 Chevy Sedan - Pioneer Legends Whitekit

This is my second Pioneer Legends Whitekit. The kit is the '37 Chevy Sedan. Again I went for a fantasy livery based on some old decals that I had left over from other projects (decals are from Patto's).

Putting the model together is straightforward after having done the Ford Coupe. Here I just want to show you the (correct) details of the Yamaha engine.

For the livery I went for a metallic red and some momo-themed approach.

Here are some figures: the body weighs 20 gr (1.7 gr less than the Ford although the Chevy looks bigger); the chassis is 51 gr (without any ballast); and the overall package is 71.5gr (without digital chip).

Here is a video of the car on my SSD layout. In the video, my track is running in analog at 12v straight from a variable power supply and I am using my MB analog controller. The car is without any ballast (also the car does not have the chip installed). The only tuning work I did was to true the rear tyres and put some magic juice on them.

here is the link.

That looks like it goes as well as the other one with the 21g of lead in it. Which goes better - with or without the lead.

hi David

good question! I have to say that I prefer the heavy ballasted version. It feels more planted.

But as you can see these little cars go very well without any ballast at all.
