I drag race 1/24 - 1/25 slot car and love using model and resin kits... this is one of my latest builds....

I started out with this snap-tite kit...

I picked up some tube styrene to make the turbos and intake tubes...

next I cut the hood to make way for the turbos, intake and exhaust...

Wow! That's a beauty! I haven't looked at slot cars in years (make that decades!). I never saw any that well finished and detailed. Very nice! Did you scratch build the chassis? Excellent work!

Wow! SIXX was turning me on to a blower/hat combo with that raked look all the blown pro-mods are going for, but this looks SOOOOO much like Annette "Pink" Summers' 'Vette that runs 6's at 240+ during the annual Orlando Fastest Street Car shootout it's crazy. I'm so new at this but unafraid to try anything. I've seen resin turbos for 1/25 scale and the cooler box looks pretty simple to construct. I wonder if this would also be an option for my Revell '55 Chevy Streetburner top sportsman build I'm eyeing for next spring.

So many decisions...

The colors are fantastic .

It would be hard to see to drive , but it is only a quarter of a mile at a time. :)

very nice. i am amazed how much longer the car looks just by making a diagonal/horizontal cut along the bottom.
