Hello,

I'm thinking about buying above chassis, the motor on the pictures looks very "big", does a "normal" Scalex/fly or Slot.it motor fit into this motor mount ??

Will this chassis fit under a Fly Corvette and/or Fly Viper plastic body ??

Thanks for your help

Hi Zubi

The standard slot it motor will not fit..... you need either to use the Play fit Fox or Cheetah motor or the Falcon motor... on my track I found the Cheetah and Falcon to be too fast ( over powered the track ) but the Fox is perfect for my track and I use them in most of my cars.....

the TRSF chassis will fit the C5 ( I have one done up ) I am not sure on the Viper

The car is set in its shortest wheelbase and the rear fender needs a bit of a touch=up with the Dremel drum. The front of the steel pan may be ground to follow the body contour while it is not absolutely necessary.
The car is quite twitchy and has way too much grip with magnets, since it is basically very top-heavy.
With no magnets, the challenge is to make it to slide without tilting. For this, a massive amount of sheet lead is added to the front of the car until the rear end begins to over-steer.
All in all, the Viper body does not do well on the TSRF chassis. As an example, a GB-Track 917 set on the same chassis is a true rocket, virtually unbeatable but by dedicated Eurosport cars with tiny wheels on routed tracks. A Ninco Mercedes CLK DTM on the same chassis is also very fast. The Viper is OK if driven at a quieter and prudent pace, and obviously the chassis does not like this body and vice-versa...

As far as motors, the TSRF motor is designed to run on 12V-5A clean power, not on the 16 or 18V-.08A wall packs supplied with most sets nowadays, thanks to legal obligations imposed onto manufacturers.
The TSRF motor is a "FK" series motor like in the FLy "Racing" cars. I never liked the "S" can with their huge end bell bearing housing. It is NOT possible to fit a "S" can in the TSRF chassis, but it is easy to fit any other "FK" series motor such as a milder Plafit Fox or similar.
For the TSRF motor we recommend the use of upgraded power supplies such as Pyramid 6-15 variable with 25A available as well as PM electronic controllers. We run the 1/32 scale cars at home at about 9 volts, the 1/24 cars at 12 volts. They are plenty fast at that voltage, but most S-can equiped cars crawl under that power except for the Slot.It cars that love it too.

Well actually, the Ninco DTM is set on a longer wheelbase so please ignore THAT comparison... My mistake.

@ Zubi - and all other interested people - if you're visiting us in Egg, you might try the TSRF-chassis - -in 1/32 and 1/24 - any time and compare it to other existing ones. If you're racing 1/24-Carrera-cars - try them with the TSRF-Club-Chassis - -the LMP's - Audi R8 and BMW LMP12 - are easy conversions - -30 minutes - and real racers afterwards! Even the Porsche GT1 and the Panoz are fun to drive after conversion!!!

IMHO the TSRF 1/24-chassis are highly recommended for converting Carrera-cars.
The 1/32-club-chassis is only of use if you're racing on routed tracks - it's much to much power on a hometrack! But on hoge tracks these cars are unbeatable!
Doc Pea did a great job designing them!!!

Thomas, that's very kind of you.
The good news for plastic-track afficionados is that the TSRF will soon offer special tires manufactured by Michael Ortmann for both the 1/24 and 1/32 scale chassis, and from what we have seen, it is going to make the car very difficult to best with an exact-scale body. These tires will be (tight) slip-on over either the stock nylon wheels or new aluminum alloys with setscrew that will be available at the same time.
We are also planning to issue a 1/32 scale injected "Mystery" (yet) GTP coupe car sometimes in 2005 with a special TSRF livery that will compete directly with other high-performance cars on the market. This will be our first "genuine" RTR car and will be available in both Home-Racing (w/ magnet traction and regular tires) and magnetless "Club-Racing" with either foam or Ortmann skins and alloy wheels. Both will come with serious instructions for setup depending on type of track. Ou plans are to compete in Spanish and Italian races with the best.
Regards,

Dok Pea
