  • New Classes - Indy, Early Modified, True Scale NASCAR

    For the upcoming season, I intend to introduce three new classes. Early Modified uses our Econo chassis, True Scale NASCAR uses our True Scale chassis (Scholer, Slotting+, Plafit, Scale auto). Indy car uses an H&R chassis with custom side and front pans. See below for images

    Interesting cars. How did you do the decals? The numbers look like stick on's from an office store, but the fonts of the sponsors' decals are correct for each.

    I like the Indy cars best.

      These were made of vinyl on a Cricut. I like the results. You can design your own (scorpion) etc.

        Interested in the mods you use for the indy cars. Also which H&R chassis do you use? I have some Indy models I’d like to turn into slot cars.

          Like others, I really like your Indy cars. I have 3 that I bought from Bob Taylor a couple years ago that are quite similar [a blast to run], and am working on another one with a newer Revell Reynard kit. It's proving to be a bit more difficult than the Monogram Lola and March kits. Could you show a bottom view and may be a top view of the chassis with the body off?

            The Indy cars are a pain to build. The bodies have at least 10 pieces to glue together. Also, a fair amount of cutting is requires. The chassis is the brass H&R. I wrote an article detailing the steps in the build. See the link
            Page 1 of 2 - Indy cars - posted in Electron Raceway projects: Here at Electron Raceway, we race True scale, plastic model cars with production chassis and sealed motors. I have chosen this route to flatten the learning curve for racers new and old and provide fun and close racing at a reasonable cost. During my last visit to the Phoenix, AZ area, I met up with some old friends from the AZGR (Arizona Garage Racing) club for some slot racing fun. They race scale 1/24 and 1/32 cars at privat...

            I am still sorting the cars with weight tuning and brass. Thanks for looking

              Thank you for posting the link. Good info and pics there. I really like the different ideas for the breakaway spoilers and probably will be using one of them or some variation of them.
