      With nothing on the workbench. Time to get started on something new specifically for the 1960-1965 SCCA series. I purchased this body kit from Professor Motor and somehow managed to get most of it completed a little at a time between all the other cars I’ve built. The last thing to do was to make a chassis. Not what I would call the right order to do things, but it is what it is. Making the chassis first would avoid scratching the paint. But that would take patience. Whatever that is…

      A BWNC1 was supposed to go in this car at first. Then I ran into some clearance problems with the larger motor. A BWMS050 should hopefully do the job. I know what I’m doing over the holidays… Assembly.

      I would like to wish the entire group at S32/R32 a very Merry Christmas!

      Ken

      Just a quick validation that this car raced without fender skirts as a Cooper Ford T61. The sister car, the King Cobra… has fender skirts (spats if you live in England).

      Thank you very kindly Art.

      It’s impossible to have too many SCCA cars. Just my humble opinion.

      Chassis is finally complete.

      This one has a 23-tooth offset crown. The motor shaft lines up 1mm lower than the axle. A test bench of sorts.

      It has Slot.It wheels with Art’s 5-spoke inserts. They seem to fit the body style.

      The car weighs 68-grams even with the brass weight. Thanks for looking.

      Numbers are on. Inserts are painted the same blue as the stripes.

      Driver’s name is Cyril (Cy) Cooper. Car #27.

      Thank you very kindly Porsche911.

      It uses the slowest motor we race. It won’t be leaving the stripes behind at the starting line or anything blistering like that. But I hope it handles well.
