New Old Bug

Recommended Posts

A while ago we ran a 2hr race with these.

They were a hoot! Lightly modded, they ran like a dream and were a welcome respite from our usual club roster. I had this one left over. The rear wing was long gone. Toy-like comes to mind. So does ugly.

Luckily I also had one of these:

and soon I had this:

Here it is shot with primer after a first sand. I like how the car looks longer now.

The top air scoop is part of an old Bic pen. I'll be fitting bigger wheels all round so widened the wheel arches.

Still a bit of an ugly duckling but more race worthy now. Putty and more sanding to come.

Very cool, and it's definitely headed for Team Slot land...

White primer on. Test fit and trial run.

After years of always swapping out scalextric gears for Slot It, I now have a bit of a soft spot for a finely tuned stock sidewinder set up. Another challenge. This one's smooth as.
