This vintage style racer features a unibody construction... the body IS the chassis - the motor and other parts fit right into it.
This is just the bare body/chassis kit. You will need to supply your own N20 motor, axles, gears, wheels, desoldering braid for pickups, etc. JAG Hobbies has most of the parts along with some great chrome plastic rollbars and side mirrors if you want to add them to you model.

More detailed build instructions will be available as a PDF shortly. The N20 motor rotates and snaps into driver's compartment. Front upper suspension "wings" are supplied for use or as a cutting template to shape your own from stock styrene. Other suspension rods can be added - made from paperclip wire and attached to the anchor points on the body. You may wish to drill holes to fit the suspension rods into the sides of the car where the little bumps are (or sand them off for a simpler look). Driver torso can be trimmed/sanded to get the ride height you want. Rear exhausts are provided as templates for making your own out of metal tubes. Note the exhaust tubes will need to be fitted after the rear axle is place.
Axle holes are deliberately undersized so you can drill them precisely to the diameter axle of your choice.
I'll post pics here and on HWP Slot Cars Facebook page of how to fit the braids or reproduction Tyco Pro wipers (available from JAG hobbies http://www.jaghobbies.com/ho_slot_cars/jag_misc_parts.htm
Body can coated with primer/filler spray, sanding lightly with progressively finer grit paper between coats. Then color, decals (not included) and clear coat. I finished mine spraying a coat of Rustoleum Filler/Primer (rattle can). Then burnishing with a smooth wood coffee stirrer. Then sanding with 320 grit paper. Then a coat of primer & 400 Grit sand. Repeat with 600+ grit and she was ready for color coat.
Note: this body cannot be fitted to any production chassis, not even the old Aurora Slimline. It is far too narrow.
