  1. Looking at the pics I should explain the idea around my decision to put in a pivot, I was thinking that a little bit of flex would be desirable, although some would argue that these little cars don't respond to that I still wanted to see for myself with this build, The pivot arms can vary in diameter and for this build I used 1.2mm thick piano wire, in hindsight I maybe could have gone down to 1mm diameter, I don't get too much movement in this chassis, certainly not as much as I was hoping for, although the car does run quite nice. For an alternative feel I am in the midst of another build and in this build I will go for a 1mm torsion bar set up.
  2. No problems IM Its a bit mucky, maybe I should have given it a bath before I took the pics!
  3. I originally built this to compete in the 2020 Tasman Proxy series, obviously with all that has happened that didn't happen so with the 2021 series being planned I thought it would be a nice thing to get the car finished, Just a couple of the car..... As in previous years the car features the FF050 motor with 9:24 off set SlotIt inline gears, Pauls tyres all round and all up it weighs in at around 55 grams. Initial testing saw the car lapping around my place at 4.7 or so which although a little off the pace from 2019 still fairly okay, hopefully further tidying up may see the car a tad quicker. Not too sure if this car will front the 2021 grid as I have a Ferrari 158 on the jig and that is now half done, Funny thing that once I got back onto the build I'm all refreshed and looking forward to getting the Ferrari done with a Honda RA271 also planned, Hope you like the pics Terry
  4. The host of Round 5, Eric, would like to enter his RA271 Honda with the number 58 please Lenny. Terry
  5. I know there has been some comments regarding next years Tasman proxy, but can anyone tell me where those postings are? Terry
  6. I will be running #47 Thanks Lenny Terry
  7. I'm really keen to see a in line version of this pod, I have too many older Scaley F1 cars here which are in need of this very thing. I'll be keeping an eye out for any further developments Terry
  8. Hi John, Hands up for a XD please, Terry
  9. Sadly for us all, Big Micks' car was super quick, I always looked forward to running Round 4,
  10. I'm in.......someone here had commented "that is the ugliest car I've ever seen" I can post a pic now if thats okay???
  11. Although i have been very fortunate to pick up some much needed spares for these little beauties I still would like to pick up more if I can, So if there is anything out there I would be very interested. Thanks for any help Terry
  12. Thanks mark, I've sent you a PM
  13. Fabulous Mark! I'm holding my breath...........
  14. Guys, If anyone can help??? I'm wanting to see if anyone can help with various bits and pieces in putting together these little f1 cars from SCX, I'm not really after runners, but, if the price is right I'd be interested, just looking for rear wings, suspension bits, and anything anyone may have, Obviously I don't need mint cars but if anyone has anything they would like to offload than I'd be interested. Thanks for any help, Terry

    I'm not too sure on what to get(or what is the correct name) for me retapping out a screw hole for alloy wheels. I did have one of these(??) but I'm running around in a lather trying to find the bloody thing and what am I thinking! Try the forum! Someone will know what and where to get it! Thanks for any help Terry Sorry I should have said its a M2 hole
  18. Looking forward to seeing your progress shots on this Chris! Very neat looking car, especially like the very tidy chassis, not surprising, as all your builds are like that, but I do like the subject. Terry

    Looking good Dave! I'm not on FB so how does one go about getting the JS chassis?
  20. The Marcos is the quicker at the moment,I haven't done lots of testing with the Audi but already I can see the Audi having a bit more than the Marcos
  21. Alongside my Marcos "sister" car built a little while ago now
  22. Finally its pretty much finished, still headlight lenses to fit and a couple of coats of clear, but just about done, probably taken over 6 months to do but I'm just pleased to have got it done
  23. So, how does the Jack Rabbit motor compare to the BWA one, is the price similar?
