Most of you slot car guys from way back will have boxes full of period race goodies, both old used and NOS, but where can us newbies to the scratch built scene find the pukka parts?...I am looking for suitable parts for the STP indy car, but not too quickly because I love the search....mainly period guide, tuned motor (6mm hole in plate), axle spacers, taylor gear etc..all I have is a shoe box full of sixties strombecker parts like these_ ken





looks like a nice car can be made of this....the frame fits the shell perfectly and are those cox mag wheels?

Thanks for your input Don ..I am in UK more specifically Lancashire...the wheels came with it and I have used some strombecker 1/8 axles for now to see how the car stands....looks pretty cool....what kind of wheels did you reckon were more appropriate for the car...lower profile and wide sponge tyred perhaps slim fronts , I would like your opinion?
I have been collecting chassis and bits off and on for years on ebay and salting them away...I just fancy building some cars as raced at club circuits in the 60s and 70s for pleasure of building up with correct as used in the day!...mainly for display, but would prefer them to be ready to run.
Thanks for the ideas..ken

Thanks Michael....very interesting ....some dispute there, but I want the Paxton indy to look like a period slot car, rather than an exact scale replica, so I am OK!
Thanks also for ressurecting this post as I am on the hunt for period parts now, having commisioned a "HOT" motor which should be flying in soon.
Any ideas on guides for the period 67-70?
There are some DYNAMIC ONES ON EBAY,but are they like the ones used on the club scene of the day?...ken
