Randy asked if i can do the hybrid chassis for the Go!motor as well after doing it for the DSlot motor (or FF050 sized motors). Hybrid chassis? printed parts with a home made brass plate or styrene sheep plate.
designed for ball bearings (OD 4.76mm) and 2.38mm axles. bearing dummies (from shapeways) can be used instead of ball bearings, the printed material works great for this, i tried.
pattern file for drilling the holes can be sent by eMail or PM
screws for the chassis parts, i got from here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/M1-M1-2 ... 23528.html
yes, M1.4 by 8mm screws - they work great for 1/43rd chassis.

Great addition to your chassis selection Peter!

Tires are from Retro64, France.
Urethane tires for all scales, in 1/43 to Artin, Jouef and Kyosho.
Some Jouef cars like Renault A442 has got flat rims so tires for those cars can be used with 3D printed or aluminium wheels.

Got another lot of 13 cars yesterday, most Artin but two Polistil cars with kinda like HO chassis and this Jouef Porsche.

After changing the tires it runs really smooth.
Someone has painted it so I'm not gonna restore it, instead I'm gonna repaint it, add some decals and make clear windows, add lights and interior tray.

Cheers

Aki

Thank you Peter. Hope you were able to make sense out of my wheel dimensions.
