Bud:

You need to route out a handful of graphite SC18 chassis plates, call 'em "Special Editions," and sell 'em to the bench crowd for $100 a pop.

Seriously, people want to think they're making an improvement on the car, even if they're on the wrong track. How else could anyone sell aluminum suspension arms for a touring car?

See ya tomorrow.

Speed 300 motor in a SC18

The Big Block/Speed 300 motor pod is setup to have the pinion/spur on the opposite side of the car as the standard SC18's motor (Super 16D slot car motor). That way the motor turns in the correct direction.

The SC18 normally has the motor Pinion/Spur gear on the driver's side. Since the Speed 300 turns in the opposite direction of the Super 16D (std motor) the rear pod is designed to have the Pinion/Spur on the passenger side.

See the picture at:

That's the Speed 300/Big Block.

Then look at the standard rear pod.

Now you see the difference?

Chris you have to be a very good driver to control the power. We run a series with Bud who designed and builds the cars and we run the stock motor and find it very fast.
