  • Interest in a 1/32 Plafit style chassis?

    Hey guys! I am considering starting to work on scaling down my 1/24 chassis design to 1/32 scale. It is a simple chassis that performs very well in the larger scale, and can be used to mount almost any body you can think of with adjustable ride height, guide length, and wheelbase.

    I am kind of gauging interest for this project as it is a lot of work to tackle.

    Some things I plan on changing for the 1/32 design would be the motor mount, and making the axle brackets and accessories in aluminum to shave some weight. Durability should be much less of a problem with these cars in this scale.

    My goal is to hit a target price of around $50 dollars.

    Here is a picture of the 1/24 version for reference.

          I hate to be that guy, but I must. To much money for me.
          However, it looks like a really great chassis.
          Why doesn't my car run like that?

                          IMHO, I think it’s worth the $50 because not only do I get a great chassis but I also get to support a fellow slot car racer who took the time to not only develop his own chassis, but managed to take it into production and make them available to us. I think that’s pretty cool!

                            Thanks, it is a lot of work to do something like this. I did the 1/24 chassis because our local club just flat out could not get them anymore. What we could get was from europe and about 100 dollars shipped.

                            My contribution to growing the club was to provide an easy to build chassis that didn't have hard to solve problems like metric hardware, MM brass, and aluminum bracketry that was easily bent.

                            The Plafit stuff is fairly hard to get in this country, and has some of the same downsides. So I feel these may be a good way to go.
