Greetings,
I have two of Mac Pinches body kits and have had alot of fun putting them together

A homemade brass chassis under the BRM. (not very satisfying as it is a plain flat piece of brass) A Tomy Ho motor was installed, due to size constraints, without much satisfaction. since the motor gets very hot and the car does not have any giddy up. Slot-it geare were used and the motor shaft was sleeved up to the correct diameter for the gears. Slot Classics slip on wheels look excellent on the car as well.

A Pattos chassis was purchased for the ALFA and a drive shaft set-up was used to get the motor further up in front. Now the driver would be able to be used in his cockpit as the mabuchi motors are a but of a snug fit and tend to occupy the space where the driver needs to be. BWA wheels are used along with Carrera turned down classic wheels as inserts. Tires are a combination os NINCO and CArrera.

Now that I am tossing around the purchase of another body kit or two, I am curious as to what others are using for chassis/motors/gears/wheels etc. I would appreciate any input from you scratchbuilders....especially a good chassis design as well.

Thanks,
RAy

Very Interesting Chassis Sean......It appears to have a threaded 1/8th axle on the front and a Slot.it axle on the rear...........

I take it you can fit Slot.it's both ends?........If so you can expect mail.

Regards

Alan

Thanks Sean, they look good.

Excellent John...These chassis look ideal for motorising a couple of project cars I have on the back burner, Jag SS and Aston Ulster.

I would have thought they would be very good under one of Mac's superb shells.

Regards

Alan

PS John I'm afraid that Vanwall of yours is incorrect as it doesn't seem to have a guide pod!.

Hey Mac it must be catching, i've just had a thought too!
The new motor in the Scalextric MotoGP bikes is ideal for scratch builders. It has a slimline body (30mmx12mm). Ref C8301 it is supplied complete with 2x 9z pinions and the right angled mounting bracket. They're cheap too at only £5.00
