  8. Aah this means the crown has to always be on the right hand side of the car when looking from the back also. What are the reasons for using offset gears? Do you guys have a preference?
  9. Thanks Rosco I have heard of offset with gears etc but did not realise what it was. I always thought it must have been to do with the shape of he crown gear Than you again as I have learnt some more. fred
  10. That is very interesting having the motor shaft perfectly perpendicular to the rear axle. Love your work and learnt so much with todays post.
  11. This is a fantastic build and an absolute inspiration about what is possible. Great job and I cannot wait for "War and Peace" part 2
  12. A little question to those out there building bodies. Do you slosh cast or two piece mold? I am sure I am not alone in wanting to see the molds you have produced and how they are set up. Some pictures would be great. Thanks
  13. Hi Guys, I would like to apologise to all as I think I have posted this car a little early. I have had one printed in the past although it was a slightly earlier model but it was the basis for this one. The wall thickness was fine. I have one on the way so will post photos of this when it arrives. Again please accept my apologies.If moderators would like to remove thread I understand

  16. Is there a way to tell the difference between silicone and rubber tyres by look or feel? I run a routed wood surface and would prefer to run rubber and urethanes and not silicone.
  17. Our thoughts are also with you from the kiwi side of the ditch. I hope you are all safe. Take care
  18. that is a great write up and sealed the deal for me. Thank you
  19. Welcome aboard from a fellow Kiwi. This is a neat hobby I am sure you will enjoy.
  20. I built mine but I know you can get them from www.slotraceshop.co.nz
  21. That is such a nice job you are doing of these great little cars
  22. Chas those are both very cool. Great job. The driver cut out looks like it would work well also.
  23. Sometimes I print them as parts and glue them together. My printer is a UP 3d printer and prints abs. The footprint is around the 135mm mark. There is always a lot of manual sculpting to do before the master is ready.
  24. Thanks guys I appreciate the help and will be in touch. cheers Fred
