Here's one of my AFX drag chassis! This one ran a 0.569 @ 38mph. 3ohm motor with polymer motor magnets. I used a modified Tyco Pro crown gear. That gear alone really woke this baby up!! I just got my Dash magnets! Now I need to build another to see how the magnets stack up. If I go to a lower ohm motor, I may be able to match the performance of the poly chassis at a much lower cost. This stuff is too much fun!!!!!

what length track are you running on? I have a t-jet with mean green- Jl magnets shunts etc. pretty much like you have set up and have run a low.5 on a short Psyco slots track @30 mph. it was the fastest car in my box except for 1 super G+ that ran slightly faster.

Thanks Guys!! I just gotta make these things go fast! I like to see how far you can push them.

Bear,
Inadvertant Christmas chassis!! I didn't even think about it..


Clyde,
I'm running a scale 1/64 scale 1/4, 20' 7.5". You must be running on a shorter track, or higher voltage. I'm running 2 batts in series for 25.3 volts.

Thankx Jim: yes that track is about 16 ft. Another track i have run the same car on is the same length. but a few more volts The car I mentioned has run in the mid 7's on that track. So you got my attention for sure.

Yep, that's what I was thinking on that setup. Those numbers are consistant with my Mean Green chassis'. Try a 19 tooth Super II gear in it and watch it "come alive"!!
