A new set of rear tires because the biggest Pro Tracks were still too small! These are a custom made set made to replicate the top fuel size Centerlines found on the real car.

That is very nice! I like the simplicity of construction as I always make things more complicated with my projects... :D
What are you going to do for a driver figure?

Uuuuuum.....good question! It appears that the slot car's motor will take up the driver's seat. 'Ol Raymond Beadle may be reduced to just his helmet for this ride!

I think you have plenty of room for a upper torso at least!
This is what I did with a sprint car...

Nice sprint car, where did you get those wide Pro Tracks? I was told the largest tires they made were 1 3/16X500.

I built that for customer who sent me a Womp chassis with a model kit attached to it. I used brass rod to replace the plastic rod. The Pro-track wheels were already attached. I would check the web site.

ERICK, THIS THING IS SICK!!! :)

MAN I HAVE TO DO ONE JUST LIKE THIS ONE....AT LEAST TO HAVE
SINCE THERE ARE NO TRACKS IN WEST PALM BEACH.

TAKE MOR PHOTOS, LOTS OF ANGLES SO I CAN LEARN AND USE
AS REFERENCE.

CAN YOU ALSO GIVE THE SIZES OF THE TIRES AND PARTS AND WHERE
DID YOU GET THEM. IF YOU CAN SHOW HOW YOU WELD...BETTER FOR
US AMATEURS.

LONG LIVE THE BLUE MAX !!!!!
STILL WAITING ON PICS OF YOUR EXP F/C PROJECT.

I AM PLANNING ON DOING THE ARROW SOON.
