    Question Premier Avenger

    Would anyone have any info on the Premier Avenger? I have a couple new chassis/bodies that I'm about to assemble, and am kinda confused ( ok, so what else is new! ) about how the body mounts. I see no place for screws, pins or other body mount hardware. Does it just slip on?

    What about tires/wheels? Any pics?

    Thanks!

    Smile Hi Rotor!

    The Premier "Cyclone Avenger " body is bolted in 3 points on the chassis which has 3 holes that need to be tapped first with a #1 self-tapping screw. There is one hole on each side of the die-cast frame towards the front and one hole at the back of the chassis. The coupe body has a flat on the back to place the screw.
    Regards,

    Question

    PDL...I find no holes in the chassis for body mount screws at all!

    Do you maybe have a pic to show the location?

    Also, what colors might the car have been painted? The only pic Ive seen looks to be a metallic root beer color as best I could tell.

    Thanks PDL!!!

    Talking Kits vs Kars...

    If your chassis is not from an actual RTR car but came in a bag with a tag (chassis kit), it has no holes... You have to drill them on your own. They are: two on the side about 1" from when the chassis curves to a straight line, and one on the back exactly in the center. Diamater is 1/16" if I recall, just enuf to apply pressure on a #1 self-tapper.

    The bodies were gold, black, metallic green, metallic blue... and other "attractive" colors. The body design was not too bad, some kind of a futuristic coupe akin to the Dodge Viper mated with a Nissan 240Z... with gills.

    Not my fave and vey bizarre engineering, but eh, what the hay.

    Thumbs up Thanks PDL...

    ...I knew my eyes weren't that bad!

    I'd looked and looked, and didn't see any holes for the mount screws! This was a NOS "bag with a tag" chassis, so that explains the lack of holes.

    If anyone has some pics, I'd like to see them!

    Thanks!

    The Morse tap drill guide says: #2-56 use tap drill #51 (.067") - just over 1/16". The #1 machine threads use #53 drill (.0595") just UNDER 1/16.
    The #2-56 and the 2mm machine screws are commonly used as motor mounting screws along with the #2 self tapping motor screws.
