A bit more fettling done on the mad metro, and it's starting to look like a race car.

Body work is mostly done, and chassis is a fair way prepared too.

 

Then comes tuning this beast.

There is no date set as far as I know...which is good because I am slow to build up a car most times.

I guess we will run this series in September / October or earlier if all the cars are done. I know quite a few guys haven't started yet. No stress.

 

We could use some more photo updates of where everyone is at in the meantime. This keeps the thread moving and the pressure on the less motivated builders. I'm looking at you now JK.

I have yet to decide if it needs weight adding, and you will noticed I haven't mastered hot melt yet, still a blob here and a squish there.

The wheels are too small though Pat.

Thanks to MunterWorks I have an interior. My Turd is looking more polished by the day.

Once my driver head is fitted, the interior is in situ and the lightweight MunterWorks windows are fitted, I am expecting my car to achieve perfect slot car balance. My lap times are certain to drop significantly. I can feel it.

Some beautiful work going on here. Deranged, but beautiful.

 

We have to run our turds un-polished at our club. Here's mine, to inspire you on to achieve greater things with it. The model's actually not all that bad of the original prototype 6R4.
