My first was a brass and piano wire anglewinder X frame chassis with a Group 20 motor.
It had a scale wheelbase of 9'-9'' with orange foam tyres covered in evil goo...

It ran beneath a Dodge Daytona Sports, a car which never really existed and was later outlawed by the then governing body the ECRA. It went pretty well, winning a Regional 3 Hour Team race.

Must build another, I guess the closest thing to it nowadays would be a Carrea Superbird body, but it's too narrow!......maybe I'll have to get me a "handling" lexan Daytona?......The lure of the "Dark Side" never goes away.

PS Graham is Phil sending the Proxy cars to you?

Ah John

I remember it well!......The stuff never did work......I can still remember bending the tip of my Weller trying to get pinions on!.

Shame about the Daytona, it ruled the roost down our way in both Saloon and Sports/GT, we all had then except poor old Roy Norwood who didn't consider them "cricket" and refused to use one!.

I must admit I am tempted to try and recreate that car, possibly without the orange "foamies", as my cars were always painted bright yellow, and there was a little bit of a colour clash. Looked like something the cat had brought up!.

Regards

Alan
