    Wow! Those are fantastic. And these are why I appreciate your advise to my questions. Now, let’s see you do a front motor performance chassis. 😬

    Like these ????
    Yes Chris, like THOSE! You chassis I consider art! The combinations are fantastic. For instance the motor pod bracket like so:

    And the time you must spend de-burring edges and making parts just so.

    Looking at Chris Walker's chassis', I notice that the sidewinders are mounted using the 4 screws. While the inline mounts are using a three screw pivot mount. Is the motor rotation /torque a consideration on these mounting differences?

    I'm not somebody running 1/32 podded chassis, but looking from the outside in, it seems one advantage of them is an way to change motors of different profiles. When/if you have a motor that doesn't fit, you build, buy , or 3D a new pod that fits your existing chassis & your new motor. You don't have to change the complete chassis out. Others would be more knowledgeable than I am regarding handling advantages & disadvantages of chassis with motor pods. Historically, a few of the British built vintage 1/32 brass chassis with various pods.

    Owning some of everything, I’m envious of brass builders. And I build RTRs because, it’s easier for me but takes tons of tuning. My hybrids take less blueprinting but require tuning like the RTR cars. I’ve won and lost with them all.

    Well Scott, in my case my scratchbuilt chassis are entered, not because they work well, but because building cars from scratch is what I like to do. 90 % of my slot cars are unique. I only possess about 6 cars that are RTR, and maybe only two of them are still using the same chassis they came with.

    If running at the top of a proxy was important to me, I might succumb to the lure of Thunderslot, but my interests lay in building cars and so that is why I enter my own chassis, with hopes of one day not running last.

    I imagine we all have our own specific reasons of why we enjoy this hobby, and tend to gravitate to those very reasons as we travel along the path and that follows us into proxy racing.

    There probably isn't any theory, it'll be purely personal preference much like the brass/brass and the plastic/plastic builds.

    RE: Custom chassis, custom pods splain please

    Looking at various builds (recent Can Am proxy cars come to mind) I see things to ask questions about.
    I see cars with a custom brass pod and plastic chassis. I see other cars with a plastic pod and brass chassis.
    What is the theory on these types of setups? They must work or people would not enter them.
