    Scalextric DPR Compatible Chassis for SCX NASCAR CoT (Ford Fusion)

    A good friend switched from SCX Digital slot cars to Scalextric Digital, but had a large collection of SCX NASCAR cars, including several that he customized the livery on. He didn't want to give up using those bodies, but converting an SCX Digital chassis to plain analog or Scalextric Digital isn't as straightforward as for other brands. I offered to help, and this is the result.

    Note that the purpose of this chassis is to use AS MANY ORIGINAL PARTS AS POSSIBLE, so that the parts from the SCX chassis can simply be moved over to this new one. The only thing needed is a standard analog type guide, the wiring loom for DPR chips, and the DPR chip itself. The motor pod from the SCXD chassis can just be popped out of the old one, and popped into the new one. The front wheels can be easily moved as well, using the stub axles clipped to the original chassis.

    I did my best to mimic the front splitter/grille area of the CoT (Car of Tomorrow) cars, but with some minor changes to make them easier to print. A little bit of paint might be needed, depending on the original car. While this chassis was measured from, and tested on, the Ford Fusion model, I'm told that all CoT chassis are the same, so this should work under any SCX CoT body. A clean print should not require any modifications to work, but there may need to be some trimming of the chassis or body for optimum fitment.

    Supports are needed for some areas, but the screw holes/posts are designed not to need support on the inside. If you use PrusaSlicer, definitely make use of the pre-supported 3MF files I've uploaded.
