  • The fully adjustable 1/24 chassis I have built for our club.

    Hey guys. Just thought I would share this here. My 1/24 club makes heavy use of the Scholer and Sloting plus style bolt together chassis. We have 4 different classes that run these. They are relatively low cost, fit any body, and perform really well.

    That is when you could get them easily. The club favorite was the Scholer, and they are only available easily now in Germany and quite expensive. The Sloting plus worked well, but has since sold out at most locations as well. So I decided that building our own would be the best option. We wanted to make some updates to the design to make the build easier, and also so we could have them on hand to sell to new racers at any time.

    I did not do these to try and mass market or anything, just so my local club would have a good supply of cars. We currently have 30 more on order!

    This video shows the changes that were made vs. a standard unit. We are having them all laser cut and formed here in Oregon!

            Excellent work! I think my club would be interested in some if you end up selling to the masses.

                  They are cool - how much do you work out each?

                  I have been looking for a 1/24 adjustable chassis to power up all the 1/24 kits I have hoarded over the years.

                  I was thinking about trying to put something together on a 3D printer. But that would be better.

                  Did you design it all on a CAD program?

                  cheers

                    Yeah the car was completely CAD designed. They have great performance for a bolt together kit!

                      Easy to use for 1/32 or 1/24.

                        Those are really nice! Awesome job. I would be interested in buying a few if you decide to sell some outside your club. Let me know?

                          I currently have 30 of these kits on order. If there is any of this original order leftover I have talked with the club and we are willing to sell some of the spares. We can re-order at any time.
