Clay - How do you get your technical info on a particular chassis builder (R2B2)? Do you have access to their facility or maybe one of their cars in the pits or something? Looking at what's available in magazines or on TV isn't enough. You show lots of photos at the start of this thread. Are they of one of the R2B2 cars and how do you obtain them?
I found a lot of R2B2's race car web page, as well as their Facebook page. They are one of the few chassis builders that puts out a lot of info. Lots of pictures during construction, and lots of shots of their cars. Makes my job a lot easier!
Thank you very much guys!
I was out of town all weekend, so I didn't get any new work done. But before I left on Friday a little box of goodies from Jim at micro nitro http://www.micronitro.net/ showed up!
I can't get over how good Jim's parts are. Most of you already know this.......I had some 1/24 wheels of his before, but to see what he can do in 1/16 scale is just amazing.
Here's the three piece rear wheels, and hubs. I need to open up my slicks a bit to get these to fit, but they are going to look awesome!
And here's what I'm using for the fronts.....his new Gibson style front wheels.
Thanks again Jim!

I also finally got to the main halo and a few support braces. I still need to finish the drivers floor panels, seat brace straps and a few other things before I add the a-pillar bars in there.
One other thing I needed to get done before the interior sealed up was the simulated titanium tranny tunnel. I started with two pieces of .05 brass sheet to form the back part. Then I added the back loop, middle loop, and handle. I couldn't find any brass tube the right size for the front part so I machined one real quick. It was then added along with the front loop. A few strips of Aber PE welds finished it off.
Still needs a bit more clean up, but it's getting there.
Thanks for looking....Clay
