Very interesting with the lexan chassis. Is it rigid or somewhat flexible?

Its very strong and depending how thick it is, is very flexible.I machine it to between 1mm=1.5mm thick.
Hard to machine thinner as it starts to melt.I use compressed air to keep it cool while machining.

Looking really nice, looks like a lot of work you did..... Could not imagine how many hours it took to make the chassis and pod. Thanks for the pictures :text-bravo:

This one is ready to go. It is Eldon's version of the Porsche 906 using a 3D universal chassis.

Yebo and Mitch, great work! Looking forward to seeing the lean chassis run and EVERYONE loves a 906. Would you happen to have a shot of the underside?

Hi to All,

CARaing has finished the 1967 Ford Mirage and now track testing and tuning start....

This is the final product:

this time I opted for painting only and no decals were applied...maybe it would have looked more neat with decals...? Same as the previous Firebird, it is not 100%...but PERFECT to me!!

Thanx for following my build an good luck to all racers and builders!

Cheers

It looks great, Clive! If it runs as well as it looks after you finish your tuning, then you'll certainly be at the pointy end of the leaderboard come the races! handgestures-thumbup: !!

Best,
