National Championship Series Chassis Fixture
by Precision Slot Cars
Way back what seems like a long time ago- chassis builders
started their tasks with music wire, brass sheet, and a useful tool called a
The slot car chassis jig was patterned after 1:1 racing chassis building fixtures and allowed
the scale scratch builder to create a slot racing chassis where all of the
parts lined up straight and true.
In recent years, builders of “stamped” chassis slot cars
discovered that using a chassis jig or fixture could help them build straighter
and faster slot racers.
One of the leaders offering custom stamped chassis building
fixtures is Precision Slot Cars of Warren Michigan. Their latest
chassis-building fixture allows the builder to set up and build the following
types of stamped chassis:
- Champion Turbo-Flex 4”
- Champion Turbo-Flex 4 1/2”
- F.C.R. 4”
- F.C.R. 4 1/2”
- Parma Flexi 5 4” (1/8” and 3/32” rear axle sizes)

Yes- you read that right; this one fixture is designed to
allow straight and true building of all of the chassis types that are used in
Parma’s “National Championship Series” of races.

and the new Flexi National Championship Series can be found at: www.flexiseries.com
Because the NCS races are restricted to what equipment you
may use in each division, aligning the rear axle bushings and guide to the rest
of the car becomes important for less rolling friction. And as a bonus, the NCS chassis
fixture allows you to build a chassis that tracks true and consistent on both
the straights and turns.
If this wasn’t enough- the Precision Slot Cars NCS chassis
fixture will help with the chore of straightening out chassis that have had a “meeting”
with the wall or other solid object. The "plate" of the NCS fixture is a precision surface allowing for all chassis parts to be restored to perfect relative alignment.
Take it from me, being able to easily salvage damaged chassis
certainly saves money in the long run.
