Lola T290 Build

Recommended Posts

I finally finished this car last night after working on it on and off for quite a while.

 

I heard great things about the Sloter Lola's, unfortunately mine was pretty poor when I got it. None of the wheels were round, and the bushing carriers were really bad. So I decided to put a proper chassis under it!

 

Used an older 312pb chassis I had as a parts car.

 

Materials used:

 

.032" front and rear pans

.063" side pans

.055" main chassis rails

WRP guide tongue

Samson Classics Guide Tube

Pod is reamed and I used 2-56 screws and nylocs to hold it in. It sits on top of 3mm thick rubber washers.

 

Since this car isn't the best "scale" appearing car anyhow I was more focused on performance. So I installed a paper interior, with a hand painted driver.

 

It needs a little more motor, but it handles very well!

 

ps. I am away the pinion isn't full meshed, since I intend to change the motor I will fix it then!

Agree re appearance, looks like the cigarette packet of the sponsor.

 

Again lovely chassis.

Nice work, Zack.

 

Gives me an idea for the LC/LJ Torana kits I am yet to make a start on.... prefer to go with piano wire and brass, but may do one like this to at least get one of them onto a track....

 

frats,

Rosco
