« Part 114: Sprint race car motor, seat, rear end Part 115 of Toy Construction series Part 116: Sprint car finishing it up »

The tires you will see here are just leftovers from other project but help get an idea what’s going on.
There’s a lot more to this project than is first seen when looking at it just on a shelf as I discovered when I started building one..
Of course making a frame out of dowels had something to do with that.


It’s interesting how they designed the manifold, may be using this idea on other projects.

Sorry hunter but these tires are from three different builds, still need to come up with a style for the tires.
The plans show a XX pattern but not sure, need to go looking at sprint tires and make a chose.
The plans show a 2” tire on the back the ones I showed were 2 7/8.
I know I want them fat but from there????

Any one in the know could help me here???

I love building these different models never fail to learn something new, like these cars don’t use a transmission it’s more of a direct drive, to change gearing they can switch gear ratios in the differential.

Sir, maybe you should just log on this site more often to be ”here to learn”. I believe there’s a guy here that some refer to as #4 that has a few spare good ideas.
