  • Pioneer Legends

    My club has been using Pioneer Legends as IROC cars for several months, they are supplied by a member that has two dozen of them. The cars are good non-magnet runners, when we get back to racing our own cars the Legends may become a regular class, so I decided to build my own. This car is a tribute to one that ran in the Northeast in the mid to late '60s.

      So far we have only run them on ovals, both plastic and routed. The cars do not have magnets, but there is at least a little lead located where the magnet would be on top of the chassis in front of the motor. There is a minimum total weight of 80 grams. I understand that the 1:1 cars do run on road courses from time to time, I expect that we will be doing that in time.

        Thought I'd add a heads up to those running or going to buy the Legends cars.
        I bought a second Legends car, the orange and blue, "Gulf", #69. Got it in the mail today,along with wheels and tires.

        The CB Design (15 x 12) wheels in 1/32 and the Slot.it, F1 tires end up being within a few thousandths of the same O.D. as the original tire diameter. While the CB Design wheels are 1/32" scale, not the 5/8"th scale that the cars are, they still look fine (as seen above). The new combination is alo a bit wider than the stock wheels/tires, but again, for the cars style, they look good.

        Also, the tires seem to be "corner" high, you can either trim/sand them to the correct diameter, or...just let them wear to the correct diameter. They work fine even with the tread corners a little larger than the center. No hop, no bounce on my wood track. Smooth running everywhere.

          We decided to run a class for Legends cars that are stock, except for silicone rear tires. The first car that I did was built to proxy regulations with some aftermarket parts that I did not want to change, so I built a second car from a kit.

            Nice looking cars Rich. I especially like the shade of red on the Dodge. What paint is that?
