      Revoslot owners will like this and if you've raced JK chassis before you'll be familiar with the layout and it works fantastic.

        Is the JK a take-off on the Cox ISO Fulcrum chassis?
        Chassis advancement may be good from an engineering standpoint, but I feel it leads to too many one-manufacturer classes.

      Though it might be a bit, would like to see the pipeline of ones to follow in this class.

        Looks okay, but doubt this would compete with my Pioneer Mustang notchback Trans Am cars. After time trials the race director would probably mandate a restrictor plate in the form of about 6 ounces of additional weight.

          So would that 6oz 'restrictor plate' be mandated after the Thunderslot Mustang blowing your Pioneer Mustang into the weeds?

          You misunderstand how our race director wields his power. The Thunderslot Mustang would be 'managed' from the get go. SCCA Trams Am rules required basically 'stock' components and that Thunderslot chassis looks closer to a fabricated one than one from the factory with a few upgrades.

          It might even kickstart a whole new proxy series

        I'll bet it weighs about 1/2 of what my Scalextric Mustang does.

          I wish I hadn't noticed this thread. I'm thinking about retiring but maybe I need to retire from slot cars 1st. Already got too many Mustangs and I'm not even a Ford guy and I've even got Mustangs in my Cougar draw.

            I get paid to build models, race slot cars, and travel to museums.

              I think an H & R 14K might be a good restrictor motor

                A proven chassis design, but, by no means new.............

                ​​​​​​To be honest, the design is not all that new, it follows the design/principles of the Parma, Kelley, JK, Mossetti, etc. 2 piece "flexi chassis that have been used in 1/24 commercial "Flexi" class racing since the Parma "flexi" was released in the late 80's.

                The same design philosophy can been seen on many 1/32 BSCRA /Eurosport type chassis over the last 15 years+.

                A Mossetti 1/24 Patriot "Flexi"......different pan and center section cut-outs, but the design premise is the same
