Re: Proper Gear Alignment for LMP Chassis

I am not recommending this shop over any other. They were simply the first one on the list I got when I did a search for Slot.it Offset Crown Gear. I am posting this as an illustration of the type of gear I am talking about. https://www.lebhobbies.com/sigo29b-slotit-gear-offset-29t-inline-crown-bron...

Re: Suggestions Sought for New Chassis Design

At least two to three out of the five bodies shown above will not fit the chassis with its existing battery in its present configuration. The chassis is simply too wide to fit most scale sized cars except really wide ones such as modern Group C or large saloons such as Nascar.

Rex, could you please explain what you mean by, "side magnet"? Perhaps post a close up photograph of the changes that you have done?

Re: Materials, Tools, and Techniques for Outdoor Track

Your track reminds me of the old Riverside Raceway in Southern California. It is cool to see what you are doing in the great outdoors.

Re: My MagDragster

No there is a use for magracing that I never would have thought of. You car looks nice Sir! That looks like a red can MRRC motor. If so that thing is a monster in a slot car at 12v.

Re: Sorry for the downtime

I think behind the scenes there might be much more to keeping these websites operating than is obvious from the surface.
