Professor Motor's Brass Rod Chassis
with Andy Smith (Professor Motor)
I hear news from frozen Michigan that Professor Motor will make a vintage style, 1/24 brass rod chassis
to go into a kit with their repro MPC Indy Offy bodies. Andy sent me pictures of
a prototype chassis, and it's a thing of beauty! I guess I'll have to get in line for one.
I will let Andy Smith tell you about it in his own words. He writes:
"The chassis is constructed from the PMTR5012 stamped
brass motor bracket and the PMTR5013 stamped brass
drop arm. A 7/32" brass tube is used in the rear to allow
for 3/16" OD bushings and the 5/32" front tube allows the
1/8" axle to rotate and slide freely ala Champion. The
motor bracket used here has a 1/16" offset built in on one
side, and this is used to lift the motor and allow
for the larger 1/24 tires."
