B & E Slotsport Planning New Chassis Kit

B & E Slotsport are in the final stages of designing their new 1/24 chassis.




First 3-D printed models were produced this week and pre-production kits are expected to be tested in May 2014.

The chassis is intended for "Hardbody" slot car use but has many other applications as well. The main chassis pan is in two pieces and the wheelbase can be adjusted by using different lengths of steel rod to connect the front and rear chassis pan.

No prices or planned release dates have yet been announced.

Contact B & E Slotsport for more information.

Ron Hershman was the overall winner with 315 Laps, John Miller 2nd also with 315 and Sano Dave was 3rd with 296.
