After running the Scalextric Torana in the recent Bathurst ATCC Proxy Race I figured I needed to build something a little more competitive. Phil mentioned he had a Jag XJS body so I thought it might work. It's about 5mm wider than the Torana and will end up a similar amount lower so it should go reasonably well. I Hope anyway.

I decided to go with the crowd and use a Baby Raptor also. I found the Olifer Torana chassis is identical in wheelbase to the Jag body so it's an easy choice.

I am using resin building spacers as body mounts as they are strong and easy to shape with a Dremel. They also hold screw threads well and can be screwed into seemingly forever without stripping.

Good old 5 minute Araldite for mounting them also.
