  • ThunderSlot M6 build

    This car has been built for the CanAm proxy here on HRW, and it looks like it will have entries from a few countries. (Eligible cars are from the CanAm series 1966-1974)

    While I do generally prefer to scratchbuild my chassis, my current laziness (and the fact that our golf club has just opened), result in me building a TSlot chassis.

    I have built two as a club member has requested one, and as they both run virtually identically, I am not sure which one will be entered.

    The first is an anglewinder, with an NSR22K, silicone damped pod and body mounts, MRSlotcar gearing, a rear axle brace, and NSR Ultras.

    The second a Sidewinder (athough this is a bit of a misnomer as the Tslot pos has a 2 degree motor angle),...a Piranha 21K motor, and essentially the same remaining bits as the anglewinder.

    To avoid duplicate liveries, I like to paint something a bit different, and although this is a fantasy livery, I think it does look period correct. I did make/add a few bits.

        You’re fine, it’s your first proxy I believe......welcome to the big leagues. We usually stand when we read the teachings of SirChrisGuyW and faint at the sight of his builds.

        All kidding aside, both chassis/body combinations come in at 74(ish grams)

      Interesting that both produced the same lap times!

          Impressively clean as always. I'm very worried about how light I am after seeing this. Oh well. Too late now.

            That does not mean I will be sending it in at this weight,....I will likely shed a few gms. !!!

            If you say so... I was pretty pleased with how it performed, so I still feel good about my car.

          Hi Rob, To be honest, the results did not really surprise me............essentially the same bits and set-up on both chassis,...the only real difference is a few degrees of motor angle.

          Cheers

              Run silicones like the fast guys and shiny tires are standard...

                Chris, do you use an axle brace on all your AW/SW pods or only the Thunderslots?

                  Hi Mickey, I make axle braces, or use axle tubes for every car I can, plastic, or scratchbuilt.........the only exception is when I use the ScaleAuto RT3 "Red" motor pods... (I am using these wherever I can on plastic car builds). These are the stiffest motor pods on the market today, bar none.

                  Cheers
