DONE !! :D
Totally AWESOME Derrick. :lol: And LOVE the idea with the floor plan, nice touch. ;) Chassis is looking way kool mate.
May I pick your brain ?? The Micro ball link.....what part of the build do you have planned for these..? I'm not familiar with them, and yes....I need to get out more, I know. :lol:
I'll be following this closely as my build nears the bench mate.



Thank you all for looking in on the build. Pick my brain :D WHAT BRAIN? :lol: No but the Mico-Ball comes from RC planes, thay can be used for front suspension. Like a ball jount for front strut. Hope this help.

Outstanding work. The chassis and suspension look fantastic. I love the jig. I've never seen anyone use balsa wood for a jig... Great idea. How did you make the four link brackets and holes so symmetrical?

Sweet, thanks Derrick. :D I thought they may have been for suspension, just wasn't sure. ;)
Cage and 4-link look superb too.....;) Keep'em coming mate, I'll be using this for inspiration on mine. :D

I used 00-90 look to be the right size. A there's on beating in just building all in fun. :I may need you to build me a body.

To get the parts to look the same. I make a patterns that i like then cut it out. I cut 4 pices of plastruct and tape together, then i use washable glue stick and glue the patterns to the plastruct. Then drill out 2 holes and put the nut and boltin to hold the parts not to mover, cut out and drill and sand.

Great idea. Why didn't I think of that? B) I really like the use of the washable glue stick for the pattern.

Derrick, this thing is looking so good. You have made some progress since the last time I saw it. Love all of the drawings that you are doing to get what you want. The scratch building is looking amazing. The chassis is fantastic as well as all of the parts for the rear end. The Jig looks great. I am going to have to do a Jig for my funny car. Looking forward to more updates on this build. Keep up the great work.

I also wanted to ask what kit are you using for the rear brake calipers? any way to have you post pic of them? I am still trying to figure out what I am going to do for calipers for my 1/16th Funny Car. Thanks

Derrick,

WoW!! Love the chassis plate/frame jig ... what a great concept! I'll be stealing those ideas, for certain!

Thanks for showing us how it's really done!

Watching ...

The rear end and some other parts came from a model call TIME BOMB i get from a brother in my club.

Get a little more work in on the frame, but a long way to go!

Thank you for sharing all the progress pictures. I have always wondered what went into a build like this and you are providing a great deal of information that can be applied to other projects. Keep up the great work.

Um, if I had ten thumbs Derrick, (sometimes feel as though I do....B) ) YOU would be getting ten thumbs up from this 'ol geezer....:)
The chassis is really taking shape mate, looking fantastic and clean.
(ps; got a Time Bomb bookmarked on you'know'where...)
