    Anybody on here build one of these resin Wolverine CanAm cars, if so what chassis did you use?

    I have seen a few of these built...(including a very nice one by David Mitcham)........most have been scratchbuilt chassis, but, David did use a Penelope Pitlane sidewinder chassis.

    As far as adjustable plastic chassis choices,....you could use a Slot-it HRS, PCS , Shapeways adjustable, etc etc.

    Cheers

    Fantastic kit and a wonderful unique car.
    Chassis all depends on what you want. It's resin, so heavy. If you just want to run it then the PP chassis is easy. The HRS will take a SW pod if you opt for a bit more performance.

    I am looking forward to seeing your build of this kit.

      After pulling everything out of the closet this morning. It appears the the Slot it Alfa 33/3 and the Policar/Slot it Ferrari 312PB chassis will work with some modifications (read cutting…) to the sides and front. I’ll post pictures when surgery has begun.
      Thanks

        Does anyone else think this looks like Speed Racer's Mark 5?

          Yes. Well it was built in 1965 and raced in 1965 & 1966. Speed Racer came out in 1967, so the cartoonist could have been influenced.
