How right you are, Tony! A combo of Monte and Dennis, should be a real challenger to the Fords that I expect to start seeing soon....

Thanks for the heads-up, Chris!

And Val, those Fords look really nice; one of them is a J Car - right?

Allan,

Thanks.... yes, one is the first generation Ford J and the other is the Ford GT MKI. Both are Strombecker bodies with the "J" riding on a modified Scalextric sidewinder chassis and the MkI using a stock Sebring. They are both very different cars, so we'll see how Bruce or Alice make out.

Great info! I'm running a Mirage body, an AVANT 20541(hard) podded chassis and pod, with NSR Ultra tires on the rear, front wheels tires from a scalextric Catherham and a slotit flat 6R motor with a 12 tooth pinion. I haven't decided on a spur gear tet.

One question, I've never used a podded chassis or this motor before...any suggestions on target weights for the car?
