slot car tragic

1/24 Mazda Rx-3

Recommended Posts

A Fujimi kit on a stretched Womp chassis. Power is a trusty Mabuchi 16 and used the kit wheels shimmed with a cut up Coke can over Pattos alloy rims. Kit rubber tyres are really grippy on my track.

Used the chrome sprue to make a roll-bar.

As a child of the 80's growing up at the race track i remember well the 'Road registered' class. Basically 20 rx3's' 3 rx7s, a commodore, a datsun 1600 and an rx4. Good memories.

 

Massive flairs on her, very cool.

Great cars the rx3 won in every class it was entered in and it came 5th outright at Bathurst 😁

The most insane car I ever owned was a 1973 Mazda RX-3, it got 10 mpg and used to eat Camaro's and Mustang's for breakfast...

 

I used to shift it at about 14,000 rpm, and I had a straight pipe out the side, no muffler...

 

Great job on the slot car, I'd love to locate a 1/32 scale body...

 

All the best...

Sweet mod, looks fantastic. I have that same kit sitting next to a standard GT non flared Rx3 still in its box waiting for me to do the same. Just haven't got around to it yet, but you may have just given me the kick i needed. Lol.

Oh, I also have a series 2 Rx7 with the full Daytona flare kit waiting for the Moffat Styvessant treatment. I feel more rotary slotcars are needed lets see more!
