Tom...I got onto SFI's website and they have different spec for the different classes. It looks like each spec is $35.00 each other than one that is $45.00

WOW! I GUESS WE'LL HAVE TO DO WITHOUT THOSE. I THINK THAT'S KIND OF RIDICULOUS, PAYING THAT MUCH FOR SPECS THAT SHOULD ALREADY BE PROVIDED

Paying $35 to get a book to be 100% certain your car will meet the spec is a small price when building a 1:1 car.

YEAH, I GUESS SO, BUT I STILL THINK THEY SHOULD INCLUDE THEM IN THE RULE BOOK.

 

 

I'M STARTING TO PLAN THE CHASSIS FOR MY 1/16 SUPER GAS VETTE, IS THERE A SET DIMENSION FOR FRAME RAIL WIDTH? IF NOT, HOW WOULD YOU DETERMINE THAT?

 

THANKS

Here's some photos of a jig Exoto uses to build their die cast cars.

This is a 1/18 scale 1954 XS Jaguar D-Type 'Short Nose'.

Getting ready to take swing at a chassis. Can someone send me the link to Thumpers tutorial? I have heard about it but, can't seem to find it. Any help or direction is appreciated.
