      Building a Front Motor Indy Roadster (Part 2 & 3)


      This is parts two and three to conclude this series. We will finalize the rules for this class and get into the meat of building a scratch low power front motor model with an offset drive shaft for a Watson Special and which parts you might try to use. DArt already has a suitable front motor Watson body kit (with a beautiful optically clear plastic windscreen) based on the rare AMT 1:32 kit and oversized DArt tires for this project...

      I’ve added two more spots (up to 7 now). We will also have a free practice on track session for all roadsters/chassis – bring your controller if you want to test your build regardless of what stage it is at… (ie. bare chassis, chassis & unpainted body or complete)…

      …doors will open at 6pm and the format will be quite fluid…

      …now get building!!!

      I’ll post some pictures of all of the parts used along with progress on the build so far… I did decide not to proceed with the offset intermediate drive shaft on this my first front motor roadster chassis build – perhaps the second one will have that feature – but I wanted to get one built and ready for the first Roadster 500 before experimenting further… stay tuned…
