Russ Toy: STP Indy Turbine
Russ Toy sends these images of his version of everyone's favorite car, the STP Indy Turbine. Awesome, Russ, thanks!
"Hereís the latest project from my workbench; the STP Indy Turbine. It uses a .078 wire U-frame
(same as my VMRA F1/Indy chassis
) with two REH motor brackets on each end.
It features a drop arm with a floating center weight and independent side pans. The front shaft is
coupled with a Q-tip handle (for now). You can actually feel that itís four-wheel on the track
and itís really quick down the straightaway (maybe, too fast). I wouldnít use this as my race car,
but it does make an interesting conversation piece at the track!"
