      I bought this kit at the slot-car show. It looks as narrow as a roller blade. But I like to torture myself so…

      The MGB had a track width of 41mm from the outside of the sidewall bulges. This would have a track width of 39mm if I didn’t lift the wheel arches over the tires a little. Which I might add… is exactly what they did with the real car too. This is one car you can’t afford to slam.

      I hope this to have this ready for the upcoming Meisterschaft. Along with my Jaguar XK 120… this car was built only to have fun and lose races. But at least look good doing so. :good:

      What do you mean think outside the box? Where did you even get a box? Where's my box?
      Even though I may be new at this myself. How can I help you build your car?

      A little more progress.

      The car weighs 58-grams. It still needs weight, numbers, and a driver’s name. The rear bumper is the widest part of the car. It’s legal width for Sportscar at 47mm. Thank you very kindly for looking.

      Beautiful build Ken.  I was blinded for a few seconds due to the shine on that car.  That’s a good thing.

      Kudos Looks fabulous!
