    Bronze wheels look great.  What metal cast with?

    I'm kinda up against the learning curve on my mill work. So while new information gestates in my mind that will help the quality of my work, I've spent the morning developing templates for cross members & mounts for the front control arms. They fit the frame nicely & I've got them level, front to back.

    Thanks for stopping in, guys.
    I wanted an accentuated big n little effect with the tires. Need a little tweak on the body set now. Want the horizontal body line to match the angle of the dangle between the tires.

    Recently bought a mill, learning to cut my own.  Opened up a lot of options.

    I looked for quite some time & finally settled on rubber rc tires for my coupe.  2.2 for the rear & 1.9 for the front.  The quality is outstanding.  Perfect minatures...even have the big tire smell.

    Good to see this thread.  Much respect for your builds.  Your metal parts always look good!

    Anyone into rc cars?
    A friend of mine is deeply involved with both nitro & electric cars.
    He's turned me on to a bunch of random parts...an older OS max CZ engine, a drive unit, front & rear suspension bulkheads etc. I'm fabbing a chassis & cage for it...a sprint/drift kinda no body buggy.
    Looking for a good forum where I can participate & learn...any suggestions...wish this site had a rc section...I like it here.

    A year ago, this corner was full of guitar cases holding my collection. Been accumulating them for 20 yrs...kinda like bringing stray dogs home when I was a kid. I've sold a few, given a few away to close friends who had taken a shine to a particular piece & after some rearranging in the git shop, moved the rest of them there.
    Now, I've got 8' of new bench space.I knew earlier this summer that the corner wasn't going to cut it, space wise. Just took a while to accomplish the logistics necessary to arrive at this point.



    Room for the nitro project on one end...



    ...and the coupe on the other.

    I've always admired your work, Tim.  Learned a lot watching your techniques.  You & 2 or 3 others have been my main motivation to jump into the machine shop game & start putting a shop together....learn how it's done.
