After racing several modified RTR cars in saloon class, I've always wished NSR would produce a car that would fit the bill.

I know they do the clio, but its still not on the pace of a mosler, so after a bit of rumaging through my parts box I discovered the spirit 406 isn't that far off the wheelbase.
Also the front post lines up perfectly with the mosler chassis - body mount number taken care of already!

I'll let the pictures do the talking, but it hasn't been quite as straight forward as I thought, but nothing a little plastic card, glue and a huge dollop of dremel cant sort out!











More to come, paint for one! but a bit more fettling first!

Ey Up,

interesting idea, but we couldn't do that at Gainsbro cos rules say OEM chassis !!.

I just might try one as a jape, to see the look on certain faces !!??.

I am not sure all the work is worth it as the Spirit can be tuned to go very well, you could just use the wider body car to save having to add the flares and then set up the pod. My wide bodies Pug is a liitle faster than my Mosler chassied Calibra.

I think even using the wider body would still need the dremel as the arches have been ground more upwards to get the car as low as possible.
Also, the shell was sitting in my spares box so this is a conversion on the cheap!
The only thing I've had to buy so far was the motor mount and some araldite!

I do run a couple of these standard(ish) and on our track they dont even get near an nsr mosler, but I agree, these are quick when set up.

Hopefully I'll get some paint on buy the weekend!
