  • In search of, body float!

    That 10 watt bulb finally went off in this thick skull of mine. And this is what I came up with. A variation on the Scaleauto H plate and credit goes to whoever Scaleauto got it from.

    The holes under the screw heads are oversized and the screws thread into the H plate. There will be 4 more holes at the corners of the H plate and screws will thread into the body. This just might work!

    Yep, revo do mutch the same to. As do BRM ,TTS. And flexycar they all have their own spin on the same principle . I scored three of these chassis a while ago not sure what age they are but run threaded axles the same principle again , what was that song history keeps repeating.

        I'd have to say my Parma international 32 is one of my favorites

          So you all are saying I *might* still have a chance of claiming I invented it...

            Cox Super Scale 1/43 scale cars were the first ones I observed with this. A simple plastic center with a brass H that loosely snapped into place.

              The Riggen HO cars of 1970 (3 years ahead of the Cox 1/43 cars), had a variation of the "H" plate body mounting system.........and this system of chassis design/body mounting was fairly common among 1/32 club racers in the late 60/s.

              Cheers

              A Riggen HO chassis (1970).........the "H" plate rested on the main chassis plate, and when the motor was clipped into the chassis, it limited the upward movement of the "H" plate, but, there was enough movement to allow for some plate/body movement.
