Dammit, can't edit the topic title. Should be ARII Honda Z-GT 1/32...

Well, I finally got my Carerra GO!!! today... Gave it some break in and few laps. Pretty cool. That lasted about 2 minutes.

Started tearing it apart in prep for the tiny Arii 1/32 model body. Still need to mount the body to the chassis (I hate that part), and of course add paint/decals...

My camera sucks. The flash is either too much or too little.


Enjoy.

I just picked up some balsa wood. I've never tried mounting a body this way, but I'll give it a shot!

Very neat little car, I bet it will be different to anything you've driven before!....

Keep us posted on your progress.

Well, I got to drive it on my bud's 95 ft Scaley track tonight, and all I can say is, WHOA! what a fun little car, even with the stock motor and tires!

Now I just need to paint it and add some decals, and we'll be good! Surely a motor swap is in the future, but for now it's very fun.

I also just bid on several more small cars from ebay, including a Honda N360, so I'll be needing another GO!!! chassis for that. Fun stuff.

My bud was hooked, too, so he'll be getting some small cars and chassis to put together, too.

Thanks for being my inspiration, guys, or is that mates?

Cheers!

I highly doubt it would be anywhere near competitive with the monsters you guys are creating! It still only has stock tires and motor. The car is great on tight twisty tracks, but it runs out of gear on any straight over 6ft (~2meters?) long...

Honestly, though, I'm not quite sure how the Proxies work. From what I've gathered, I just send the car across the "pond", or to where ever the event is, for a select few to race against the other entrants' submissions?

Cheers

You have it down exactly.

You simply package your little car up with the fee to send it back to you, and when it arrives, it'll be raced by some extremely qualified drivers against others cars built by SF members. Once the fun is over, we send you back the car (in one piece) and you can have the pride of showing the world what a good builder you are.

Don't worry, I'm a first time builder, and so are a few others entering into the competition, so you won't have to worry about the inexperience.

I would love to see as many cars there as possible, so if you could send it, that'd be great
. I'd see if you could alter the gearing a bit because our main straight is about 4 metres long. I don't know what motor and gearing you have.... But any motor over 18k with 3:1 gearing should be okay on our track
