  • Recent Slot Projects

    I've been upgrading some of my Fly, Monogram, and MRRC slots with Olifer chassis' and Slot.It and NSR running gear.

    I started with these two ALMS type cars from the late nineties. Each has an inline Spanish King, Slot.It 9/25 gears and bushings, axles and wheels. Slot.It Zero grips up front and NSR super grips out back. NSR guide and braid. I have to admit I like the Viper a little better. Both cars are very smooth, but the Viper feels a little on edge in some corners, and thus feels faster. The Panoz is almost too easy to drive. The computer tells a different story - they run medians within 1/100th sec of one another and posted fast laps just /1000 sec apart!

    Now I'm working on these two Sebring '65 era cars. The GS has an inline Spanish King, Slot.It 9/25 gears and bushings, front axle, wheels and zero grips, NSR rear axle, wheels and super grips. The Chaparral has an inline Flat-6 spinning at 19.3k with Slot it 9/26 gears and bushings and NSR rear axle, wheels and super grips, guide and braid. The Chaparral has a stock front end. Not quite finished with them yet, so I haven't run time trials.

    Curious as to why you chose the Spanish King?

      We run a class of cars where the Spanish King is the spec engine. When the 19.5k King was released, we upgraded to that so I had a few Spanish Kings on hand. I plan to build a few more cars to run against these on my track, but we don't currently race them as a class.

    Wow, we must be running on the same wavelengths! Recently did a MRRC Chappy and Monogram GS Vette. Slightly different set ups. Nice work!
