Scalextric Vw Van

Recommended Posts

I've been bitten by the VW bug(!) lately. These vans offer plenty of diversity when it comes to modifying.

Think I like the rat version too.

 

Reminds me of one I saw driving through Byron Bay with a bumper sticker that said, "drive it like you just dug it up" which did suit this particular kombi.

Can't say I'm a fan of the white one, but the aged look is cool...

 

You should try making one of these...

In stock trim, with the magnet, they are quite quick...

Without the magnet, very top heavy, and very narrow.

I don't possess a road course at the moment so I have no idea how each van performs. They do get round my rally track ok.

Rusty van is all standard, axles were shortened by 4mm and wheel boss's(?) shaved to make fit under body.

Blue/white van has an SCX 4wd Fiesta chassis fitted. Will probably add wheel arches and take wheel width further out for better stability. Plan for these vans was more show than go but once I get a track up and running then speed will develop, hopefully.

Decided to go down the Group 5 route with the blue & white van.

Bit of finishing still to do.

now look mate. I know it is cool I know it is wearing a skirt, but I am fairly sure that doesn't make it legal as a late entry to the Metro bash . . . . threadjacked.gifsorry.gif

 

Actually, quite innovative, even if very nearly as ugly as my wife's new Suzuki Ignus

I think even Stevie Wonder would realise this VAN would not be eligible for the Metrorama proxy.

Somewhere in the parts bin is an ex group 5 BMW awaiting Kombi van wheel arches.
