I found this to be an interesting looking car. The kit was very simple to put together. The hardest part of the build was choosing a colour.

The original body posts were removed for a custom made chassis.

Very nice job! Monograms kit version of this car was my first slot car back in the 60s.
This is my recent Covid quarantine build.

Very nice looking cars fellas.

You are both way faster than me using Slot.It motors (specially that 25k flat-6). I'm using a 14k - BWMS050 slow class motor.

Funny thing is this car is close to holding the track record for this slow class. You couldn't pay me real money to put a fast motor in this car. It's just too much fun to win races against other slow motor cars.

I had a dilema using the original wheel inserts. Besides being ugly (to me anyways). They didn't fit the Slot.It wheels at all. I prefer American 5-spoke wheels, and these D'Art Hobbies inserts fit the wheels perfectly.

Cooper team racing anyone?

Cool piece of history Al. Well excecuted brush-work too. Your stacks are a bit nicer with the flair openings.

A common thing I see between all the cars. We all installed a better driver's head.
