    Chas,

    From my fleet, the guide pivot to rear axle lengths (inches) are:

    SCX Fiat Abarth (stock) 2.75



    Reprotec Fiat Abarth (stock) 2.61



    Scalextric Mini (80's version), resin copy with raised wheel arches on Reprotec Fiat Abarth chassis 2.61



    Bugeye Sprite with PCS chassis 2.70



    Lagartijakit Austin Mini pick up with resin chassis 2.65



    And this potential extruded aluminum chassis (Ranch Design, I think) to go under either a SCX Fiat Abarth or 850 Coupe body 2.75



    All pretty close, I'd say.

    Dan

      Hi Reek455.

      Is that getting to be quite a big car. I do not know size.

        Some of my fleet

        I promised JT some pictures of my cars that had potential to enter this series, so here they are. Better late than never JT, sorry.











        They are all mounted to either PCS or Penelope Pitlane chassis except of the Surf blue Mini which uses a BWA rear bracket and and front end from a PCS.

        The front row is made up of an Ocar Lotus Elan and Airfix Mini Cooper S (It has twin filler caps!).
        Row 2 is George Turner Anglia and FPF resin Lotus Elite.
        Row 3 is George turner Austin A30 and Ocar Alfa Giulietta.
        Row 4 is Resin copy of an Aurora Spitfire alongside my Sprite proxy entry from the first first series.

        I won't be using any of these cars though, the Dauphine is what excites me right now. When was the last time you heard anyone say that??

        Thanks,

        Pete

          After seeing them side by side, it probably is but I'm not in charge.

              Is the Fulvia Team Slot or Autoart?Because TeamSlot cars are generally oversized(sometimes hugely),Autoart are closer to reality.If memory is correct the real car didnt seem that bigger (a friend owned one centuries ago) than my Fiat 850.

                That is an AutoArt car that I put an NC-1 in which made it much easier to drive.

                  Beautiful slot cars Pete!

                  What did you use for a chassis under the Elite? I have that resin body and am considering building it.

                    Dan, that looks like the chassis I gave you, and yes, it is from Ranch Designs.

                    Great collections of cars appearing here. Once the rules are posted, we should start a build thread. eh?

                      Hi Vtecfour and all.

                      Agree your rear axle to guide post measurements all look pretty good.

                      I had thought of the Ford Anglia but from above photos appears too big like Escort.

                      Sorry but Lotus looks too big too.

                      Latter two comments might be partly negated however if sensible rear axle to guide post measurement adopted. They are certainly cars that would have raced raced together and would look great on track. Can just imagine the great photos now. 2.8" or 71mm is sounding pretty good.

                      Regards

                        Great photos and discussion everyone! Pete, what a wonderful group of unusual (by US standards anyway) cars! The understated racing graphics work well together.

                        Reek, good to see another small car fan with photos to post! I just visited with a Lancia similar to that this weekend (see U13 Culture thread). The notes I read indicate that the HF version was a bit different in the wheelwell flares than the Monte Carlo coupe. I noted that the dimensions are just outside the UX box, and if oversize model, it could be even more so.

                        The Abarth Fiats are a sizing challenge. Their modified body and rear width pushes them into UX with the super Minis. Regular Fiat 750?s without flares fit nicely into U13.
