  • Heimberger Vega Modified

    Another car off the shelf.
    I built a replica of a buddy's modified about 4 years ago that never ran well.

    I've rebuilt this one at least twice before with limited improvements.
    I trashed the original chassis & used a left side bias chassis I had in a parts bin.
    I transferred all the running gear to the new chassis along with the front & rear bumpers & headers from the old heap.
    Added side bars, body mounts & a gear change.

    I added a new interior & engine/radiator to the battle worn Vega body with no other changes.
    I think I'll keep it now.

        Another great replica slot car, from a very memorable era of racing. If cars like that were being raced today they'd probably use bodies from small SUV's.

            Always like replicas of actual cars - local short track heroes.

            And the beer sponsorship - always something cool about beer sponsorship on race cars.

            Cool slot car build -
