Not sure how I got the entry list, but I need to decline the invite to this event. I did double check my totes yesterday, but I have none of those castings.

Thanks for thinking of me for entry

Just a quick question: why is tungsten putty not allowed? I don't have a problem with it, just curious. Thanks!

  • It tends to migrate into places it shouldn’t…I had that happen to one of the Jeeps in the Jamboree… — Crazy_Canuck
  • That sux dude. I've only used it on a few builds so far and it was by necessity of having to leave in the interior. — FeralPatrick
  • it leaks and ruins your wheels — epvideos_diecast_racing
  • I fix my putty using super glue, it makes some sort of of a protective coat over it. It'll be fine on my car, if wheels sucks, it's going to be because of my bad polishing/lubing skills, not because it leaked lol — Underdogs_Unleashed
  • I use super glue on putty too, but only to tack it in so it doesn't come loose. I'm thinking UV resin would be good to put a shell around the putty, too. — FeralPatrick

Just finished it. I needed superglue and couldn't go buy some in the weekend, delaying the shipping moment...

Should hit the post office tomorrow

(And here's a proof I didn't used putty)

The other Saleen S7 has left the garage on route to the start.  I was tempted to leave it factory silver (like in the movie), but went with blue.  I put a few extra coats of clear acrylic after seeing how poorly the paint from my last car held up on this track.

This was my first attempt at casting a chassis in low-temp alloy.  It ended up a bit heaver than I intended, and needed some work to get it balanced and under the limit.  I still have a ways to go to refine the technic, but the upside is full interior!

  • Oh wow, cool! Any tutorials on how to make them metal bases? — Underdogs_Unleashed
  • I've been getting all my molding ideas from The metal is Roto202 (melts at 202F) which is Bi/Sn. This mold was a "two-part", but I think a "cut-mold" is an easier/better way to go. — TheMakersBox
  • Ken, that is really cool... and ambitious. Thanks for sharing the YT link. I don't have the bandwidth to tackle that and my truck tourny, but I love learning. OH, and I promise you'll get your EVO's back. Sheesh, it's been like 18 months. LOL! — GravityThrottleRacing
  • Cool thanks, will definitely go take a look at the vid — Underdogs_Unleashed
  • Interested to see how it will perform — RLoRacing
  • super cool — Numbskull
