PostSubject: Yankee Gt40 with a twist   Tue Jun 05, 2012 3:16 pm


I wanted a Yankee F1 CHASSIS under my GT40 body with out changing the Geometry of the F1 CHASSIS AND A-ARMS , but the a-arms extended out to far for the wider tires So this is how I did it

The pictures have high lights and subtitles to explain the easiest way I figured out how to do it

Now the GT40 is sitting on the front and rear F1 Suspension with a aluminum pan.......

This was my biggest hurdle in this project

I know I have a lot of fires burning but this took me a long time to decide how I was going to achieve this smash kit

Also had to engineer how to do the wheels

1 tire complete.........I decided not to paint the rims for now......Gonna get some use out of the new tires first...I have one more complete set of rims for this car . I think those will be the ones I paint after the modification is done with those..

It took 4 inches of foam rubber to properly cover the 3-3/8 inch wide rim..

Simply, Contact cement....I put it on both sides of each foam doughnut I cut out and let them dry.....Then...Stuck them togather..........They will never come apart.....The quart of Contact cement cost about 10.00 dallors and the Sheet of Closed Cell foam cost around 240.00......With all of that said I cant make a lot of tires....I will tell you , That it does take some time and technique. Duplicating them is the most difficult part of all....

BRP makes some of the nicest tires out there.......Those are the best. These were a special project so I decided to take on the task.... Not something I will do often...It makes a big mess .I rather be engineering and building frames and car bodies.

I hope this helps you

Very nice- I have a Yankee that I'm cleaning up and hope to have it completed by spring. Mine has a NASCAR body.

Any idea what this might be worth? It will be clean all original (except for the carb and air cleaner) and in excellent shape.
