OK OK,here's the Flippin Pan Flippin thing.
Well,here it is,how to completely Destroy a TSRF Chassis,and turn it into a real Slot Car8o :rollin :b
First,you Flip the pan upside down.Next,trim a bit off the inner side of the left rear(used to be right rear.)part of the pan to clear the motor box,as it now interfears with that.
Flatten the big ugly pin tube mounts,and chop what you need,if any,off the sides.Depends on width of body you are using.
Take some flat ended pliers,and break off the Front Axle uprights.A quick down up bend will have them off pretty sharpish.While you are at it,might as well chop off the front of the chassis just in front of where the uprights used to be.
Cut a couple of pieces of 3/32 brass tube about 2 inches long,actual length is really not that critical.And solder them in to the inner edges of your now chopped up pan.
Take about a six inch length of 1/16" piano wire,and bend it into a flat bottomed U shape,so that it is the same width as the two pieces of brass tube.When done,it should slide in an out like Trombone.
Bend about a quarter of an inch of the bottom end of the U up by about 80 or so degrees.Like most of what I do,the actual length and angle don't matter,it just needs to be close.Remember,it's only a Slot Car.
Cut a length of 3/32 brass tube for the front axle carrier the length you need,poke an axle through,and put on the wheels n tires you will be using,set up the car on a flat block With the piano wire thingy pushed into the two tubes,at the ride hight you want,and solder the axle tube to the piano wire cross piece.You can solder it to the front or back,whichever suites your purpose.Again,it just doesn't matter.
Now,just assemble the rest of the chassis as per normal TSRF instructions.
Voila,an instant Small 1/24 sedan chassis,and you thought it was gonna be hard to do Eh!
