  • Anglewinder PCR Chassis Under BMW Z4

    Converting the Scalextric BMW Z4 from Scalextric stock to anglewinder Scalextric/Slot.It hybrid. Simple.


    Complete Slot.It Porsche 911 GT1 costs less than the sum of it's parts....and you'll have a body & chassis left at the end.
    The Scalextric lights transfer over easily, I need a couple photos of that process.
    The EVO6 motorpod has the left & right arms, I've removed them for this, the removal is not strictly necessary but since those arms have nowhere to attach on the PCR chassis I saw no reason to leave them.


    The indicated axle bushing supports interfere with the new motorpod & need to be shortened...or altogether removed.






    It all fits but I did have to narrow the rear end a bit from Slot.It stock, just loosen all four setscrews (one each for the wheels, one for the spur & one for the locator) and move them all closer to each other.

    new scaley Z4

    They are a great chassis upgrade. I did one up with a inline slot-it 21K motor to meet our GT2 class rules and it now will run with all the Slot-it cars in that class..

            The BMW is the only Scaley car I have the aftermarket chassis under, But I have 4 Shapeways chassis under Carrera DTM cars and like the Scaley car it make these cars so much better than the stock chassis. The are set up with a Flat6 slot-it motor and they make great running cars. And one chassis under the Ninco LMP Acura and with a 25k slot-it motor and won the LMP race the first time out with the car.

            I think that the new aftermarket chassis be they Scaley or any of the Shapeways chassis will turn poor to so-so running cars and get them running with Slot-it type cars...

              I just converted my P1. Rear track is a bit narrow for my liking, but it works. I used a 1mm offset sw pod with 15x8s.

              It is VERY good.

                  Use some axel spacers to widen the track

                    The body width prevents this. I am not sticking my wheels out past the body.
