  • Ford vs Ferrari - Car Specs

    There's been some interest expressed in having the specs for the cars listed, so that we can see what everyone is running and with all the cars no In-house, I don't see any downside to it; although I understand and respect that some may view their car specs as being part of their competitive strategy and, therefore, not comfortably shared. For those who are comfortable, here's the place to share your racing specs.

    1. #21 - Audi 1 - Policar Ferrari 330P body / TS Lola chassis (stock black chassis, hard pod) / spring suspension / TS Mach 1 21,500 rpm motor / gearing 11:32 / Slot.It airsystem rears 15x10 / fronts 15x8 / NSR Ultragrip rear / Slot.It rubber fronts - IC2000 over-coated

          Thanks for the info guys. If anyone opts to keep things private that's okay too, but the more transparent the proxy is the more confidence people may have stepping up. Perhaps, in future years there will be classes within the overall proxy where there are multiple levels of competition. I'm curious to see how the scratch built brass chassis will do relative to the Thunderslot and NSR chassis.

              Car #4: Ferrari 250LM, the only one in the field!

              Chassis is a Samson Classics brass and piano wire frame, with power from an NSR Shark, geared 11:32. Guide is ScaleAuto, wheels, tires and inserts all Thunderslot. The body was an Airfix kit, with a lightweight interior.

                          GT40 #24
                 body with vac interior
                          H&R Racing 18k "Rabbit" motor
                 anglewinder gears
                 N22 rubber tires on rear
                 screw guide
                          Hand-built Brass/wire chassis
                          This car was built for one of our club's 18k race classes so when the proxy race was announced it took very little to be ready. It has the slowest motor in the proxy field so.... we'll see.

                            The Jack Rabbit is the 14,000 rpm motor, the Hawk is the 18,000 rpm motor. Hey, look at the GT3 Proxy right now; a 25,000 rpm motor us holding off a slew of 30,000 rpm motors. It’s all about handling.

                            Right you are- "Hawk" motor it is.

                          Hi All

                          Nothing special here

                          #6 Aloha GT 40 Mk II

                          Shark 21.5 motor with 32/11 gearing
                          Sloting Plus guide with SCC braids
                 wheels all around NSR rubber on rear, NSR ZG on front
                 .05 Pod

                          Interesting field and the scratch builts and Audi1's Thunderslot "Mutation" are the most interesting.

                          I hope to bring up the rear for the entries

                          Be safe and wash your hands!!!
