I've never had a problem loading pictures, and I've loaded a bunch.... You might look to see if your doing something wrong.

It was evidently too big

It was too big of a picture for it to handle, and didn't bother to tell me...

below the photo you will see a number of URLs that you can highlight, copy and then paste.

for our porposes we use the one called IMG

the above example has had URL removed from the string of characters to present you an example of what you are looking for.

the URL you are looking for is second from the bottom of choices

what do you find ODD?
that is a third generation 4GEAR/SPECIALTY chassis with MAGNA-TRACTION type set up.

first generation was shallow chassis (similar to AFX) with short magnets and had no screw to hold the back of the chassis together.

second generation was the same shallow chassis with the screw in the back to hold the chassis together added.

Why would they make a LIGHTED SPECIALTY chassis, when they NEVER made a lighted body for a SPECIALTY chassis.....

well, I don't play guessing games very well.
you ask a question, I try to give you the best answer I can.
I ask you a question, you pose some kind of challenge?

if you are talking about the tabs on the side of the electrical for a wire to be soldered for a lighted chassis, I don't find that so different.
otherwise, you are going to have to tell me right up front what it is that you are questioning!


YOU DON'T SEE IT?...Dennis

Rich, That is a good article, but even it SKIPS the Lighted Magnatraction Specialty Chassis...Aurora HAD to have in its plans , to make some Lighted Specialty bodies when they quit manufacturing, because you don't spend the money to make an item,different, unless you have plans for it....

That gets my vote. That's what I thought when I first looked at the picture. Home made add on is my guess.

Nope it's an Original AFX chassis, It's not the first one I've gotten. Aurora MUST have had, (in it's plans)< a body that is lighted ,,and just never got to make it a reality before they stopped making them...
