Although originally posted on FB, I will post here too as it disappear a little too quickly on FB.

What you see is a little experiment with a different type of motor-mount/chassis 3D printing method.
I made available on my Thingiverse: Scalextric Ford Sierra Chassis by Johnny_s_Workshop
Instructions are available in the link above.

Picture below: from bottom left to right is the original chassis, PCR chassis and the actual result.
Above are previous iterations.

As it comes out, if you attempt this print:
leave it to cool down before trying to unbind the motor-mount.
Give it a gentle twist until you hear a 'click' from each holding point.
Then you can push the motor-mount back and forth to get it loose.

Note how the car height is lower than the original and wheels rest inside body.
I only had a spare set of 17 mm rear hubs to experiment. I recommend using 16 mm rear hubs instead:

Interior had to be cleared of all posts and weld joints:

This is most definitely not a competitive setting. Just an experiment.

Very nice. Any specific reason why you are mounting the motor in that orientation (with pinion going on the plastic end side)?
Thanks, yes: it's so it can be assembled using the original Scalextric S-Can motor (Slot it S-Can motor-mounts are also oriented that way).

I see...nice to reuse parts.
I have to admit I do not know much about 3dp, but if I follow what MrFlippant is saying, the pod is a separate piece....if this is the case, you could have two versions which would take the motor in the other orientation (I think is called can end???) which for some is a better choice.

Done! I made a tweak and available.. It's the Chassis B with reversed can
