Russell Sheldon's Collection:
Bob Emott Early 70s Group 7 Chassis
Russell Sheldon has been scratchbuilding, collecting and
racing slot cars since the late 1960s. You can see examples of his beautiful work at his website,
Russell's Slot Cars.
He sent these images of a real Bob Emott chassis, for us to get acquainted with.
Russell, this is so awesome, thanks!
Built in late 1969 or early 1970 by famous Pro slot
racer and the world's top 1/24th scale chassis builder
at the time, Bob Emott, this car is original in every
aspect, except for the paint work.
The chassis is probably an evolution of the one that
Bob Emott used to devastating effect when he humbled
the top British racers at the Tottenham Open in
September 1969, since it is almost identical in
design, with the exception that it uses "BEE" (Brady &
Emott Enterprises) spring steel main-rails.
The motor is a Mura set-up with a Bob Kean hand-wound
and balanced 24 gauge single armature. Associated
front and rear wheels, original Jet Flag and a Cox 34
tooth gear. The body is a Lola T-160 with
Pete Von Ahrens air-control devices, painted to
resemble the style of Dave Bloom.
