  • Guide post to rear axle length?

    I was curious what the different guide post to rear axel lenghts were between the different Scaleauto 1/24 models . I have the Porsche 997 and it is 117.5 mm center guide post to center of the rear axle.

    Normally a car with longer Guide Post Center (GPC) to Rear AXle centerline (RAX) will be a bit easier to drive - smoother if you would.

    Couple that with a bit longer RAX to Front AXle centerline (FAX) and you have a car that's hard to beat. The Slot.It Lola LMP cars all have that characteristic. Try one, you'll like it.

      That was my thought in trying to collect the guide to rear axle measurements for the 1/24 gt cars. I didn't see them posted and I know there is some variance depending on where you set up your guide. At least it would give everyone an idea of the range available between the different models.
      I also race the Lola and it is my best non-mag 1/32 car.

        Can someone measure the guide post to rear axle length for the Viper? Thanks.

          Will do, setting one up today

          Setting a Viper up for Saturdays races at the ScaleRacing Center. Call or come by. Open at 10.00 am. Will probably be building cars for new racers then races will start.
          $15.00 per race, or $35.00 per race we supply you with race prepped car and DS-0128 Controller. Race 10 races and car and controller become yours.
          Saves $150.00 on entry fees, second race of the day is BRM @ $10.00.

          We are also starting the Sunday race program this weekend. 10.00am.

            Rough measurement

            Rough measurement on the Porsche vs the Viper, the Porsche comes in around 117mm from guide post to rear axle and the Viper about 119mm.
            I would measure more accurately but people are racing my cars.

              Alan, I have a question about bumper overhang, as well as centre of gravity with and without the driver.

              Could you get right back to me on this?

                Lightweight aluminum bumpers and hollow casting drivers negate any ill effects.

                  Of course the bumper could be glass fibre with Al effect paint ......... not aluminium to be even lighter.
