    This weekend we are racing the OHARA T Jet and the stock tyco GT.
    In the rules the stock tyco GT is any tyco chassis but what bodies are these? I'm not sure I have any of these.

          Hi Ash
          I looked last night and I have an extra f 40 body as well as a camel GT car which I hope is legal. Come to think of it the Camel may be for a narrow chassis though. forgot to check that. I think I also have a Porsche 908? that should work too.

                Just a note guys..... We will be racing the OHORA Stock Magnatraction GT class and the Stock Tyco GT class as well.

                http://www.slotcars.org/ohora/schedule.htm

                There is also a Youtube video of the track as it will be set-up at the event.

                http://www.slotcars.org/ohora/index.htm

                The track has long straights and the joints between the tables can be bumpy, so you want to run your car higher than you would on your home track (including running the stock Tyco front tires that come with the Pan chassis NASCAR cars. Also make sure the pick-up shoes have a slight bend up at the front to allow them to slide over the keyed joints should the odd one raise up during the race.

                The rules are pretty simple for this class. Stock Tyco 440-X2 wide pan chassis (and stock components) with the exception of any single or double flange rear rim and a slicone tire (no sili-foams). You can use the replacement ski-type shoe and you can use double-sided tape to hold the body on the chassis if needed. That's it!

                See you at the show....

                    We'll be arriving early on Saturday morning and the track set-up should go fairly quickly. Looking at practicing from 10AM and starting the racing at noon.

                    See everyone there.

                        This the closest I could find on this same, Camel GT, I have. The chassis is sound yet the shoes are very worn, and not attached. A real bummer, these spring- loaded jobbers[sic] where the shoes go.

                        My questions:

                        How does one change the shoes (Diagram)?

                        Where can I buy said shoes?

                        TY for your time.
