New Stamped Steel 1/24 Chassis from Mossetti Racing

Here we see the first blanks of the new Mossetti Racing stamped steel chassis, these are the pieces ready for forming. 

There will ultimately be four versions of this chassis:

Patriot Sport - this chassis will be available in two versions. Just bolt in your favorite FK motor; either the full metal can version or the ProSlot version. No soldering is required. The chassis sets up perfectly for 8:28 Gear Ratio (48 Pitch). 
















This could become the new standard for entry level racing - as the unique design eliminates the tedious task of soldering in the motor by the beginning racer or raceway owner.

Patriot Striker - Two piece Chassis - C can solder in version. Motor brace not shown.




Patriot Trio - Three piece Chassis - C can solder in version. Motor brace not shown.
















The chassis material is 410 Stainless (1mm Thick) and weighs 1.3 grams lighter than JK. The chassis is hardened to over 40 Rockwell (JK is softer). All chassis will be nickel plated for ease of soldering.
 

The pin tube locations and rear axle position will be identical to the JK to make swapping out bodies simple.

More technical and ordering information will be posted as soon as it is available.

New Lola T-600 IMSA From SRC














The Lola T600 designed by Eric Broadley was introduced in 1981 for the IMSA Championship and FIA Group 6 competition. The first two cars built were purchased by the Cooke-Woods Racing team, which equipped them with the 5.7-liter Chevrolet V-8 engine. The Lola T600 was originally designed to be equipped with a choice of Porsche, Ford, BMW or Chevrolet engines.

The first North American race in which Lola T600 competed was the 100 miles of Laguna Seca, California. Brian Redman driving chassis HU-1 took the pole and ran to a dominant victory. Wins by the team were repeated at Lime Rock, Mid-Ohio, Portland and Road Atlanta.

This new 1:32 scale version by SRC reproduces driver Brian Redman's debut at Laguna Seca. It comes with the new fully transparent SRC display box.

SRC plans to offer the "T-Bird Swap Shop" IMSA Lola T600 HU4 of John Paul Jr. and the "Budweiser" IMSA Lola HU5 of Chris Cord/Jim Adams later in 2015.
