Hey Bill, I've just got word (and dimensions) of a better rear axle set up which should let me re-think the rear axle mount with an entirely new and more accurate looking design. But like with the Loti 33, the motor will slide ride into the body, along with the front axle. And the braid/wiper/Guidepin holder screws in underneath. Stand by!What you see is what you get!
The chassis and body are integral.
The motor snaps in. The axles slide through.
Jim, could you post a pic from the rear view so I can "look-see".
I may have to PM you some detail shots over on the Lodge to get your thoughts. I don't have any fries, but will be sending you some happy meal misfit toys to play with soon... just had to order some more shipping boxes... we ran out with all those power plugs and TV crew sets moving out. Stand by!I cant help but scribble on the blue prints, but you will have to come out west to shoot me proper.
BTW, I'll have a regular Coke with that, but Supersize the fries.
Thanks! Yeah, that's my biggest character flaw... I tend to be a perfectionist. But those "outriggers" are killing me! I have a redesign in mind that will get rid of them, thanks to a narrower axle setup my friend and VAR, Dave Wonacott, came up with yesterday. Hopefully I'll be able to run test prints by next week and get the show, er... car, on the road!Don't let perfection be the enemy of the good.
The car as rendered is amazing.
I have a set the original Aurora F1 slot cars and yours as-is already exceeds it.
None of this would likely have happened without all the encouragement and shared ideas from you and the rest of the gang over on Slot Lodge. It's been a fun journey! With (hopefully) many many miles to go yet!"Snappy" is not a new idea to slotcars. Just kinda new to H0. I was lucky enough to ride along. What a long strange trip it's been.
The dual arm shaft on this motor is perfect for my 4WD chassis that available on Shapeways. It's a 1.5" wheelbase and can be fitted with up to 4 tunable traction magnets. D. Wonacott and others have built up some pretty cool 4WD trucks and other vehicles with this chassis. They're available in my shapeways shop singly, or as a 4-pack, NEW!

On eBay I found: Mini N20 DC 6V-12V High Speed Micro 10mm*12mm Electric Motor Dual shaft Slot Car
I run at intermediate volts (so 12v) so perhaps that'll work.
@highwingpilot as soon as you'll list a monocoque car on that site, I'll place an order. I've rebuilt/built many things (steam engines, cars, motorcycles, rockets, tractors) from 1/64 to 1:1
