  • My BrassAm (the WER Experience)

    ​Okay, here goes. I promised Robert (REL13) I'd make a post on this once I finally got this going, been borrowing his for a few races now. Who knew I'd have the car basically done in 24hrs! None of this would have been possible without Scott Kulp at War Eagle River. I cannot thank him enough and we all continue to witness his masterpieces (this one, maybe not a masterpiece, but it'll more than do for me). I'm getting there and have no issues with a hex wrench, a dremel, and a bunch of aftermarket parts, but this doesn't come together without his expertise on the soldering, amongst other things. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed the process. These are so much fun to do. Also, props to Josh Michel who ingeniously turned some unwanted work-related paraphernalia into body screw rails. Card interior forthcoming. Boy that brass polishes up nice! Castrol..of course! Let me know what you think...

    That looks great, and I bet it will be fast too. Nice and low. Let me know how it handles. I want to see it on the podium next.

      Thanks! Yup, I got 'er down as low as I could. It was handling great without a body, and no lube or any kind of tuning, so hoping for a fast one.

    Well, I guess I should have asked you sooner if you wanted to buy my car.

        That’s a great looking car. I think I’m gonna need to learn how to solder joints and join the fun

          Well worth the effort. Being able to scratchbuild and take it to the track, in my opinion it’s the apex of slot car racing. To quote the infamous HW, “You can’t buy it, you have to build it!”

        Ah yeah, good work.

            Only difference from HRW to WER rules is the silicone tires. Oh, and we don't allow weight under the chassis.
