I've managed to break the chassis on my old NC1-powered Mclaren. I've ordered replacements from two shops but recieved the chassis for the NC2 version instead.

Are the 'old' chassis still available? Or has anyone got one I could buy from them?

Cheers,

Rob

Hey Rob, if you can't get hold of an older Mclaren chassis, you could always get a motor mount converter from long can shape (NC-2) into a Mabuchi shape (NC-1), so that you can use NC-1 motors in any chassis that accomodates NC-2, 5 and 6. I've done that for a few of my Ninco cars already and it works great. Hope this helps.


p.s. I'm just assuming you didn't know this already, so pardon me for mentioning otherwise.

I'm just wondering how you managed to knacker the old one?

No wonder it's broken!

Nothing so dramatic!!
McLaren had it right 'Either a guide post snap, or the screw mount for the motor bracket has broken in the chassis I'll bet.'

Both!!

Shurrup Wankel!


Taxi - Had it happen too many times to early Ninco chassis, especially the McLaren and Celica.

Tee, hee!


Still, I'm amazed that you can trash a McLaren running with NC-1 power in any of those ways.

Well done that man. Sterling effort.
