    New 1/32 scratchbuild

    I'm posting this here because I'm not really into the whole Fly, Slot-it, etc. scene over in the other 1/32 zone.

    Scratchbuilt chassis, TSRF motor and my favorite classic Riggen cut-down wheels.

    mbloes, your chassis came out looking very nice & neat. You've obviously had some prior soldering experience. Let us know how this car works once you have a chance to get some track time on it.
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    Bill, are you kidding me that chassis is way sweet and I bet it will run great.
    Soldering experiencing, heck ya its way Sano.
    Thanks for sharing that build up, and I love that old style motor bracket it will never break.
    Got some of those as well.

    Nesta, that appears to be one of the current Professor Motor motor brackets, rather than one of the BWA units. The original brackets were made for 16Ds by the Inslot group running hard body stock cars in Oregon. I agree, the chassis is clean & neatly constructed.

    That is true Bill I have to get you credit when it is right, but Alan told me they had issues with that one? Mine is old school BWA brackets.
    Sure would like to see your handy work in chassis building.
    Love to see it.

    What's the rpm rating on the motor?

    I dunno what the specs are on the motor - it's a TSRF so you can check it out from there. I do know that it is nicely underpowered, which allows it to handle very nicely. I've only run it casually on the Buena Park flat tracks, but it slides nicely and is not tippy at all.

    I forget where I got the motor brackets. I've got a bunch of them.

    BTW, the body is a hardbody from a Revell prepainted model kit.

    Your motor brackets are either from BWA, Al Penrose in Canada, or Professor Motor in MI. If they have two .047" holes in the mount's motor face, they're BWA. If they have rabbits cut in the bottom of both side legs to hold piano wire or rod, they're Professor Motor's. I can't tell which you have from the chassis photos, I'm guessing they're BWA's.
