QUOTE (compound_goose @ 10 Apr 2004, 21:11)im going to go with the hornby focus kit, and spray it in a custom paint job. ill run it with a pair of ninco bbs axels and a scaleauto sc04 motor
something like this?
the 59mm axel is the same one as is in the ninco 911 its a 1/32 and as for the focus pics yes, but in a metallic black. i doubt ill put mags in it when its done: simply because i have enough mag cars and im going to try a no mag, if it runs crap no mag then ill put a mag system in it like the scx has, you know the one where you can ajust the mag up and down so that it can be set up as very light mag or very heavy depending on what i need it as, i dont need it to be as magged as the single seat coz thats just a bit excessive
QUOTE Oh, by the way, do you want someone to come round and drive it for you?
re: flags: you might want to consider a jet flag (parma et al)because it is way easier to use
re: mags: be aware that the focus is a narrow car, so you will end up with a high CG which you will have to compensate with either weight or a mag... don't want to disappoint or discourage youbut.... been there, done that... also there will not be much room inside to stick lead..
you will also notice that the 59 mm axles will be too wide, you can of course compensate for that by widening the wheel arches
according to the body specs the focus should take a 56mm axel so thats only 1.5mm extra on each side. im thinking: would the 911 gt3r body be better ,same wheelbase so the chassis design ive come up with will still fit, the front axel will need some cutting down
about the parma flag: will it work on my home track? also, is the slot it the one that bolts on?
im probbably going to get the board tomorrow and start on the chassis
does anyone have any more precise specs of the 911 body e.g pics with dimensions drawn on etc
