    1/24 Slot Car Parts?
    Hi guys it has been some time since I have been on the forum but I have been thinking about building some slot cars. I mostly build short track racecar models and over the years I have accumulated quite a few 1/24 scale bodies, I would like to build some as slot cars and I was wondering where are some good places to get parts I plan on making brass chassis but I need all the other goodies to make the rolling chassis? Thanks for the help guys!

    That's a sweet looking build you have going there!! I have an R-34 model that I want to do some more detail on it's nice to see that there is a motor kit out there for these cars.

    Well the front axel assembly is pretty much wrapped up. On to the rear end and the goofy two driveshaft setup I will explain more on that later.

    My little girl Shelly also came down to the shop to see what I was working on.

    I had an 85 and loved the thing till the LF came off and messed up the front fender, brakes and front valance. I wish I would have fixed it now but such is life.

    Grate looking Model

    Thanks Guys,

    Some pics of the front end stuff I have been working on (shocks and radius rods) I still have to do some cleanup work to refine the parts but at least I am moving forward. I also added some mounting brackets to the front axel

    I did some work on the trunk, cut it out and fabed the trunk lip based on some resto pics I found I also started on the wheels they are made from one of the kit wheels and I cut out the centers and made up new ones for the wide 5 hubs the hubs I got from a buddy he made them fore one of his projects and it turned out this car ran the same style hubs. I still need to make caps for them.

    1/16 Scale, the motor will be the 427 Ford from the AMT cobra kit, the two cars I started with where built e-bay spacals that where in rough shape but since I just needed the bodies it worked out good.
