Are they fox type motors?

Hi Terry,

The designations refer to standard 1/32 Scale motors. Shark or Boxer type in more familiar terms. What I am getting at is no 16D's and such.

Sealed endbell Shark (S-Can) or Boxer type motors only. Fox motors are fine.....technically they are a FK130.

Alligator clips or 4mm bullet style connectors work here.

Hope to see you out!

I have 13 d motors primarily, falcons 7's and such. I'll have a look in the mess downstairs for the others.

I'll send a link to the boys from Brants....although I'm not sure they all have meccano type chassis.

GT, sports car, nascar, short track, modifieds, are all good?

Terry

Any body goes as long as it is closed wheel. The 13D's and Falcon 7's are too hot for our power supply. I have a Few cheap Fox 10 motors here if need be Terry. Check with the Brant gang. It would be great to have a bunch of them out!

Jim should be down for sure if he dosn't have anything else going on.

After reading the extensive rule booklet i noticed that i had made a serious mistake in my choice of cars. Since we will be running both clockwise and counter clockwise i realized that fueling may be an issue. That being the case i had to speed up the prep of my small block GT40 which has provision to fuel on either side...

The body has at the time of this post just come out of the spray booth and is looking interesting. Sealing, decal placement and then sealing again will proceed in the morning. Motor and chassis should roll out of the fab shop later in the day. Since i had a Plafit SLP1 that i had never used, it's time to put it to a test.

Tim
