Jan, what does a ready to race (Except Motor and gears) Red Roo cost if I may ask?

Hi Al,

 

Obviously we all have our own preferences when it comes to axles, bearings, guides, braids and wheels. The finish and decal set used on the body can also vary dramatically based on your chosen livery. So I will say (based on using one of my RedRoo chassis) between $300 and $350 if you built it yourself. However, if someone had to build you a RTR car it can be anything from $600 to $750.

 

If you consider getting into this type of open chassis racing, please remember both the GT3 and the OAPR LMP classes are using the long can motor and the RedRoo chassis are designed around that. Not only does the motorbox and chassis plate have the large cut out, but the balance of the chassis is also designed for the heavier long can motors and the 13mm wide rear wheels.

 

I must also remind you that you can make your own chassis, or modify any commercially available chassis, or mix parts from different chassis. So if you have the inclination, time and skill, just make it all yourself and it could save you lots of $$$.

 

Cheers,

 

Jan

Finally got a car ready for Melbourne this weekend. Running a old school Plafit 1800 with a tweak or 2, not expecting to keep up the hot shot Red Roos or Johnson cars but looking forward to making up the numbers.

Looks good Cam, we'll be MOMO Camaro twins, but don't worry, we'll be able to tell each other's cars apart.

I also have a very nice ( I think ) MOMO LMP.

Hi guys,

 

This class showed why it will become one of the best classes in Scale Model Car racing we have seen in a long time - this past weekend at MrSlotcar down in Melbourne during the Slotcar Fest. Andrew's concept has proven to work and every aspect of it's specification is right. There is not just one body that work - they all work, which gives us variety on track and the beautiful array of shapes and liveries that make up Modern GT3 racing. The open chassis specification also showed that you can make anything work, from a basic Plafit chassis to an exotic CNC design, they all ran at the top level. It was great to see the ingenious modifications to commercially available parts and the combination of different pieces that guys have produced and assembled for such a fast, well handling and exciting class.

 

Keep them coming.

 

Jan
