    Yes Don there is photos of it but where I don't remember where they are I think they are on the other place where I got banned (Cal style chassis), I take way to many pics.
    Well I looked in my box and find one of them!
    It's a bit heavier then the others, personally now I'm shooting for mid 90's rides.






    Sure I hacked it up a bit?






    Well as I said, got to all the way to find out what works! Hopefully you will come up with a light ride that works?

    Hello Nesta,well I cranked-out another pile of solder.This is #5,I built this chassis with a little more weight then the others,at 45.5g as it sits,but this should still build a 93-94g car.I also moved some weight around and added some more flex.This should give me a fleet of cars that are slightly different to test,and hopefully find the right car for the right day{But you know I'll pick the wrong one,and Bit*h about it...LOL}......I used a steel tongue on this one,seems pretty nice for those blasts into the dead-man.......and if none of these work,I still have my Samson car.

    I think tonight Im going to start on a mid-weight F1 chassis,I just don't really know what to use for a design,Iv seen the cars with the tilting pans,maybe I'll go that way.Nesta if you suggestions on F1 king track design,,,,please sir post them........

    Take care........Don Campbell

    Hi Don
    First of all those chassis of yours sure look very Sano, let me ask you what motor bracket are you using?
    F1's I have to say that I'm stuck with either Durans Slick 7 chassis and Bryan's great torsion chassis designs and Cukras has build some great F1's lately. If I was you I would call either Cukras or Bryan, there where a lot of cool F1's at the Parma race.
    Need to build some new ones my self, have not made up my mind at this time, maybe a modified Slick 7 or a multirail ride?
    Hopefully some guys would chime in?

    Hi Nesta,,Iv been using the "Hanada" motor brackets,I spend about 2-hours each cutting and grinding on then to get then lighter,it's a great mount but they have all dried-up on the west coast,so if I can find something to use soon I may have to go to a few machine shops I know and have my own mount made,,but I really hope it doesn't comes to that,,,but am a picky-bit*h and can't work with junk.

    On the F1,I really want to cut my own parts and not use a kit,,,I really liked the F1 that John Gorski raced at the Checkpoint{He should of won that race},so Im thinking about something like that,,shoot for a 97-100g car with a wide body.I will keep you up to date on my progress,,,,maybe I'll post some photos by monday night.

    Bryan Warmack builds some great cars,and then drives the wheels off of them,so I will study Bryan's F1 cars,and see what I can learn,,Im a long way from running with Bryan,,but it's a great goal to shoot for,,,but at my age it could just be a pipe dream.

    Take care my friend...........Thanks Don

    I need to figure out multi rails how they work! For example using three 0.32's what will that be equal to?

    Triangulate those .032 rails Nesta. Lay two rails side-by-side, then put the third rail on top of these two. You'll have the strength of .078, but with more flex. That'll send some people away mumbling to themselves.
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    Well Bill I will do so just because you are a sweetheart. This is what I'm building the Rudy's F1 chassis that has been very good, maybe the guys that raced it was better( Duran @ Jason) ?
    Have to say I tossed the motor bracket because my good friend in IL told me so.






    I sure don't want to make mine the same as the fast guys.
    No its time for port?

    Is the motor bracket you are using a Japanese one? How wide is it?
