  • RevoSlot in 3D

    RevoSlot being the great set ups that they are. Not sure what to think of this. On one hand, okay, more options available to racers, albeit slightly limited. And then, why mess with a good thing? To each his own I suppose.

    May be interesting. Depends on the pricing.

      Guess it is an option to run the great looking Revoslot bodies if your club doesn't allow metal chassis cars.

        With a SW pod that'll slaughter the metal chassis version

          Of course they would! Probably will weigh about 30-40g less! Why would you want to race them together anyway? But a sidewinder version has not been offered yet., at least not from this PSR. The whole point of racing the RevoSlots, is to race them against each other. From what I’ve read, the reason for this isn’t just monetary(Ahem), but for the clubs that don't allow metal chassis slot cars. Still trying to find out why they won’t, no legit answer yet. Our group enjoys racing RS as are, with a rear tire change(silicone), and thats about it. One of the most competitive classes we run here. That being said, to each his own.

            I wondered years ago how long it would be before 1/32 cars went to metal chassis’. I think they are unique and should handle well. Maybe not like a finely tuned brass chassis but well enough for a factory made car. I’m glad to see them. The more the merrier.

              1. It's a SlotIt pod, so a SW or IL will go straight in too
              2. Lighter weight doesn't often equate to faster lap times until you start using a lot of aero (wing cars/high downforce BSCRA blobs).
              3. It's a GT, it would race against Moslers etc. at our club.
              4. Not all clubs allow silicones, ours is one of many that don't.

                Look at the chassis, it won’t take a sidewinder pod. AW or IL is what it looks like to me.

                I'm not seeing anything that would make me want to change what I said in my original post.

                Correct on the chassis taking multiple pods. Other issues may arise as far as fitment to the body. See below where I expanded on it.

              I like it.
              Frankly, I’m sick of this one brand racing class stuff.
              I wish there was better parity among brands. This 3D chassis will allow parity with Racer Sideways, SlotIt, and Scale Auto cars. Of course, there is a price penalty.

                Okay, but we’re talking about RevoSlot here. No way would we let RevoSlots with 3d chassis run against stock chassis Revos. Revos with 3d chassis against other brands of the same caliber, sure why not. Unfortunately there isn't parity between most brands, therefore they should be broke into groups...at least here anyway. For example, We aren’t going to run stock Carrera DTM’s against Slot.it DTM’s. The Carrera’s would need some heavy mods of some sort, 3d chassis, etc. Or we aren’t going to race NSR’s against Scalextric’s.

              But hey, not trying to push one way or the other. Clubs/groups all have their own way of doing things, and that’s what is right for them. You know what you want to race. So just race!

                  Supra is available from another 3d printer on Shapeways.

                  I've a 3D chassis in my Fly F40 with an anglewinder pod and as full as interior as I could keep. Changed out the rear wheels and used the stock inserts. I think I got the stance right and it's one of my favorite cars now.

                I am all about options and horses for courses, I applaud Pendle's business idea and somewhat out of box thinking, by bundleling the items. In business it is all about value add and differentiation in the market place. They sell the real McCoy and for others they have another option, a few of us, might even try both! (BTW Area 71 prints an excellent chassis!)

                  A point has been made to the effect of these 3d chassis being able to accommodate AW, SW, IL. While that may be true that they will apply to the chassis, the SW set up may not work because of the height of the S Can motors. The RS Bodies may not take them without modifications to the body or interiors. The AW set up with the flat type motors are all that is being offered up at this time, because they fit. And also, the 3d chassis are not being offered as a stand alone product as of yet from Pendleslot. Suppose we will see when we see. So, I stand corrected, to a point.

                    Thirty bucks for a chassis..... What the hell are people smoking! Even that other one for $20 is too much..... Though I feel for the guy selling the $20 - because he probably makes $2 per chassis........... Shapeways is terrible at this point...

                      yes $30 is reaching. But if you are wanting to compete in a certain class with a certain car, that is a good option. I am guilty of purchasing 1 or 5 higher priced 3Dprint chassis, but i get a functional chassis that fits slot it parts, adjustable front axel, and fits up to original body posts.
                      im using a 3dp under fly M3 (Touring car proxy), carrera ferrari 488, scalextric Bently (tried for GT3 proxy but not quick enough), and ninco C-Klass (QS proxy). a great way to get these non competative cars going again.

                      I dont know why the big difference in pricing on some shops at shapeways, I understand the amount of material and color, but it may be a different material that shop uses? your shop (CG), olifer, and PSR the cost is reasonable, but some NR3 chassis up there almost $30
