    The chassis reminds me of hand build slot cars from the mid sixties. I wish I was not old enough to know about that stuff.

    Kerry,

    I had slot cars back in the 60s and everyone thought that I was way to old to be doing that stuff. They used to have a big race track here that you could go race them on.

    I was near Chicago as a kid. From '64 till around '68 there were a lot of commercial tracks up there. It seemed like they all closed at the same time. I think it was a buck or two for an hour of driving time.

    That was about the time that the one we had here closed down. But there were some fast cars that some of the people built. Then we had a go cart track and that was fun until it also closed down.

    Okay, the body only is $5.000? "The chassis is hard to price and more complicated"
    Isn't a 1:1 chassis around $6.000? What are they thinking of asking for the chassis?

    Seems the 1:4 will cost as much as a 1:1... I shall build 1:4 chassis now!
