  • If you could only have one chassis…..

    If you could only have one chassis under all your cars what would it be?

    ps, I know one type won’t really fit all but play along anyway.

    pps, there are no wrong answers here

    Scratchbuilt brass and steel custom made for the model in question.

    See? One size fits all

      Well there you go, the exception to the rule. Love it!

    A good bet is the HRS or HRS 2 chassis.

      Probably something similar to what Dennis Sampson builds. I've had several come through here in proxy cars. Due to motor/gear choices they have not always been the fastest on the track, but they have always been the most pleasant to drive.

          For me it would have to be a Slot-it chassis. One of the few chassis I can tune to perform decently.

            If time was not an issue a brass and steel chassis would be my preference. The enjoyment of creating something from some metal stock is priceless, especially when it performs well.

            Scaleauto with it's latest iteration as seen under the C7R R or RS Series cars. Those are proxy winners and I'd put one under anything...

                I like the Scale Racing chassis. It has weight down low, so it holds the track well, it's adjustable and supports different motor pods. It is supposed t be a replacement for the chassis, but I found it works nicely to upgrade some of the toy brands. I am currently using a Scale Racing chassis in a Scalextric Mustang and will be using them to replace the chassis of some Carrera DTM cars. The only real downside is body mounts can be a challenge.

                Thunderslot chassis for me. Minimal tuning, glue/true the tires and you have a winner.
