ID:	10232 Mocking up a few of these 2.4Ghz RC proportional speed control jalopy racers for a 1/43 demolition derby style intersection figure 8 track built from 50+ year old Eldon track. Using bulk Chinese gears, low voltage/high rpm Chinese motors, brass eyelets for rear axle bearings, Motor will be attached to diecast chassis with hot glue/shoe goo. I will cut the axle in half to install spur and reassemble with a press fit brass sleeve. Click image for larger version

    I may repop the body in resin to decrease weight. Open face helmeted driver is from a similar scale 60s Zee Toys Hong Kong Honda F1 cut in half. Fixed keel guide is from a 1/40 scale Cox Super Scale car. Racing will be crash and burn, last man standing style.
