  • Fly Porsche 911S - hybrid re-chassied

    My stock Fly Porsche 911S Martini was pretty woeful against my other 911s, so why not do a hybrid chassis upgrade. My adjust-o-wheelbase chassis have been good improvements to my other small cars so staying the course on this one.

    Chassis components

    3/32" square brass tube - main rails, front axle tube supports
    .064" x 3/4" brass strip - guide tongue
    .064" piano wire - guide tongue assembly sliders
    .064" x 1/4" brass strip - motor support cross members
    1/8" brass tube - front axle tube
    5/32" brass tube - guide tube bored out to 9/64" to accept Sloting Plus Universal guide, 7mm deep
    .032" x 1/2" brass strip - side pans
    .032" piano wire - flexi mounts for side pans

    Rolling components

    front rims/tires - stock plastic rims/tires from Fly Porsche 911S
    rear rims/tires - Mitoos F1 rims/ home made urethane tires
    motor - Scalextric FF050 slimline motor test at 20.5K max. rpm
    pinion/crown gear - Slot It 9t pinion/ Slot It 28t crown

    Other parts used
    motor pod - my own 3D printed one
    guide - Sloting Plus Universal guide, 7mm deep

    Hope to get close to this stance on final body mounting.

    Will try to save as much of the car's detailed interior tray.

    i'll bet that your motor pods make the car.

      Chassis looks great, as always. The front is too low for my taste and makes the car looks off.

        Had to really cut and gut the interior tray to get the desired features including the instrument dash, rear shelf, roll cage and driver figure with seat belt. Worthwhile modeling detail in my opinion.

        Stance worked out with tire clearance all around.

        Runs great with good stick in the corners and better straight line speed than stock.

        Another good small car upgrade.
