PostSubject: SPICER RACING is calling out to all 1/4 scale gooroo's   Fri May 27, 2011 4:49 am

I just wanted to say I am in the R&D stages of building a 1/4 scale chassis (funny car, prostock, promod) (dragster will come later) With in the next week or two I will have a complete roller ready for some goodie pictures.

I am looking to build and sell these as "Ready to run" or as a "Rolling chassis".
When the car is 100% complete and full of fuel and ready to run, the car should
weigh in at 20-25 pounds.

Also in the R&D stages is a 2 speed set up.....Should be complete the end of June.

I also do Re-foams for 1/10th and 1/12th scale wheels.
I just finished my first set of 1/4 scale foams and just to let you all know....those foams will
be racing at the ROCK! So check them out and let me know what you think.

1/10th and 1/12th scale refoams are $10 aset.
1/4 scale refoams are $70 aset.

They are softer than anything out there on the market. Have trouble with breaking the
tires loose at half track???? Well say good by to that issue....These hook!
With a set of these....You will be able to get all that monster power to the ground with no proublem..

Any questions....Just ask...

Spicer Welcome to the forum, can't wait to see your chassis's, don't forget to put a price tag on them so we know how to react! lol Shocked

Good luck and keep the pictures coming as you build them.
Thanks
Pete

Well thats a good question.....a price?

From what I have figured up here is what you get......

ROLLERS
prostock $700 (all you need is radio, reciever, engine)
funny car$700 (all you need is radio, reciever, engine)
Dragster $800 (all you need is radio, reviever, engine)

READY TO RUN
Prostock $1200 (49cc 2 stroke)
funny car $1200 (49cc 2 stroke)
dragster $1300 (49cc 2 stroke)

Now these prices are NOT set in stone. I am just giving you all the heads up on
what you can be expecting.....Let me know how you feel about the prices.....
Any questions.............Please ask

Frame? 1/8" Fiberglass "twin rail" very strong.
Drive type? #25 chain ( to keep costs down)
Body? I am going to offer whatever bodys are out there.
Front wheels? they will be hand made. Hard ABS plastic 5" tall with O-ring.
clutch? a pocket bike style.
Brake? its going to be like the megatech style brakes thats on the darkthunder. Why?
because it can all be hand made and easy. (againg to keep weight and costs down)

No pics yet.

Thank you. Progress is coming along really good.
I see these cars and dont get me wrong. The tube chassis is awsome and
looks really good. The quick change rear end is awsome but its just way over priced.
I started this to help the little man like myself....low budget and big dreams kinda guy.
My cars might not be carbon fiber, or tube chassis....but believe me...They going to
run with the best of them I promise.

Like my dad use to tell me "Son she ant gotta look pretty, shes just got to go fast A to B!

Pictures is coming soon.....

1/4 scale pro stock
1/4 scale pro mod
1/4 scale Funny car
1/4 scale Altered
1/4 scale Top fuel dragster
