  • A pair of Door Stops, 68 Indy Turbine

    Just extruded out another Indy turbine but this one has a Rev 4 Chassis where the other one had a Rev 2. What a difference it made to handling for it lowered the body by a few millimeters and added a little more plastic down low to lower the cg and what difference that made. I got the first red one with added lower weight but the best tack time I could get was in the low seven second range where the Rev 4 slips around in the low six seconds. Now when my grandson shows up this afternoon he'll need a helmet for he's going down , just got to have some Varohmpa fun. I'll get the decals and the other windscreen later.

    Great job...!!! ......Not sure if you are aware, but, Indycals make decal sheets for 5/6 Lotus 68 variations.....really good quality, and they are good to deal with.

      Wow Chris, yours looks so much better than what I modeled up. The biggest issue I had was trying to get everything to fit under the 32" OAH and then trying to get the detail to print out was another challenge. As you can see I had to sacrifice some of the exhaust just to get the motor to fit under the body. Then with the front wheel drive created another challenge so you'll notice a hump to clear the front gearing. I used a Tuna Motor from SCC that's rated at 18k rpm and this thing really scoots down my back straightaway and since I added some lower weight to the chassis and lowered the body some onto the chassis, the car doesn't want to fly off in the corners now. I ordered three sets of decals from Indy and just received them. I'll be putting them on later which may require new bodies after the racing this weekend with the grandkids. Thanks for the compliment for that sure does mean alot coming from you.
