    Slot.it Evo 6 chassis question

    This is probably going to seem like a really dumb question to you guys. Is slot.it's Evo 6 chassis capable of being set up in any configuration ( inline, sidewinder, or anglewinder) by using the right motor pod? Thanks.

    I am enlightened ... educated, even.

    Kind of like that old TV Show, "You Asked For It".

    Directly from Wikipedia:

    A chassis (pron.: /ˈʃsi/ or /ˈsi/; plural: "chassis") consists of an internal framework that supports a man-made object in its construction and use.

    You can have a chassis or a fleet of chassis. Spelling is the same.
    Thanks, you old oracle.

    Interesting point you make about the potential (or lack of it) for full utilization of the Evo6 pod features in the different configurations.

    On the subject of EVO6 chassis. If you are using the EVO6 in an inline mode, there is essentially no benefit. None of the current Slot.It Motor Pods have the outriggers to use this feature.

    The sidewinder motor pod as used in the #8 Ford GT40 and the Alfa T33/3 "MotoRadio" both have the motor pod that uses the outriggers.

    I have yet to have seen any of the current crop of anglewinder motor pods that do not make use of the outrigger assemblies.

    it was for my slop proxy car. i bought the smallest size supertires, which when mounted to the wheels were not tall enough to allow a sidewinder spur gear.

    i was i was able to run an inline pod in a 312pb by using a small crown gear (24 tooth) and slightly shaving the rear body mount with a dremel.

    inline doesn't fit the ferrari 312pb or the alpha 33/3 without modification. the rear body mount is too close to the rear axle. i just checked my chappy and GT40 and it looks like there is enough room for inline. i know all the group C cars and more modern lemans cars have enough room for inline.

    For example the inline would not fit in the Chappy

    Why would answer be no on some cars. The body is too low in that area?
    Yeah, essentially that's the issue. The Evo chassis (what's the plural of chassis, anyway) can all be set up in any of the three configurations, so far as I'm aware.

    With the Group C cars, I would also speculate that any of the configurations ought to fit, at least with an S-can or Flat motor. Long can might be more of a challenge, could have you hacking away at the interior to make things actually fit.
