Flat chassis for RevoSlot Porsche 911 GT2 Adjustable axes

Postby ePilot » Fri Oct 06, 2017 4:51 pm

Hi all,

Here my attempt to flatten the RevoSlot Porsche 911 GT2 chassis.

The provisional result (some small things to do!) :

Image

Overview :

Image

Some 1mm deep milling :

Image

Image

The brass bolts have to be modified too :

Image

To lower the chassis I made 2mm styreen shims for the front axle and 1mm for behind
(want to print nylon versions maybe in different thicknesses) :

Image

Image

Used temporarily 2mm long brass axle spacers to lower the chassis within the body
(want to print nylon versions maybe in different thicknesses) :

Image

Used some modified replacement M2 bolts (Black Arrow titanium) :

Image

Last but not least I replaced the motorpod screws (also modified Black Arrow screws):

Image

Does anyone know how to demount this terrible thing? Without destroying it?
Problem solved! See: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17644

Image

Regards,
Gerrit

Interested to see if this makes any difference - I have the BRM NSU and Simca and they run fine with a very similar chassis to the Revo chassis

This is a new company to me. The car looks expensive, but very nice.

Hi Bob,

This car has the same price as a NSR car. At least here in the Netherlands.
There are some shortcomings in my eyes. There are nearly no adjustments possible. For instance there is no possibility to adjust the axle height.
So here you need some DIY !

Regards, Gerrit

The car is priced about the same as the Thunderslot white kit in the States. Not only was I surprised by the price but also how well it ran with minimal tuning. That said it's no Thunderslot but will run with a "Tony tooned" Slot It

Don't be so sure of that.

Waiting for 3D printed parts from Shapeways...
To get more adjustment possibilities with these cars...

A little bit of tinkering...
A better version is baked at Shapeways now :)

Not yet. I'll try to make them available at Shapeways. Plus maybe a drilling template. To make installing more easy. In a few weeks I hope.

It took a while before I could answer this question...
Let me say first that I am not a competition driver, thus I do not have any racing results.
So I have two of these models, one non-modified (only oiled) and one modified (the one of this thread).
On the bench they both have the same speed.
For me it's very clear that the tuned one stays longer (at a higher speed) in the slot. Think that's important!
Overall it seems that it drives a bit smoother (yes, very subjective...).
If I drive the other one with the same speed it immediately de-slots at the first turn.
Apart from the fact that I like to tune the models, I'm pleased with the driving results.
