As part of my ongoing project to build something to beat the obligatory NSR Moslers in our Club no magnet open class, I've formulated a plan for the next chassis.
Having started with this slightly ambitious brass chassied Nissan GT-R
, I moved onto a more simple brass pan Mercedes CLK GTR, then a Lexus SC430 JGTC with a stressed member Slot.It anglewinder motor pod.
Each iteration got quicker, but still not quick enough! I've come to the conclusion that the brass is too heavy and that the bodyshells have centres of gravity that are too high.
Therefore, the next chassis will be made from carbon fibre sheet and the bodyshell will be a low slung LMP or GT1 type with a long wheelbase and wide track.
I have an AvantSlot Audi R10 body which fulfils these criteria but is a little restrictive in terms of motor movement etc.
Therefore, my question is could anyone recommend an alternative bodyshell that is readily available? I've seen a Ninco Acura on Pendle which could be appropriate. The Slot.It Mazda also appeals.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
