The Skeels/ProSlot Chassis Group
An important part of my collection is a group of chassis made by, used by, or otherwise associated with
pro driver John Skeels. I bought them at auction from a former motor man for the ProSlot Team.
As I opened the box, I noticed that, while a few were simple and similar to commercially available chassis,
most were high quality, intricate, complex and eccentric masterworks! Strange double-plumbered floppy bat pans,
iso-fulcrum hinges and Hansen pans, forward-rotating half-axles, and more! And there are springwire stops and tensioners all over!
Only one of the chassis is vibra-engraved with the words, "Chassis by Skeels," but all of them
show a similar high level of craftsmanship.
