Rail riding with wafers?

With razor wheels the wheel bores in over all width is 0.180 or there about! So there not as long in wheel bore as stock BSA wheels. The wheels however have a smaller contact patch with the track surface..With there precision edge. Plus some razor wheels but not all ! Have an anti friction strip.. T...

Re: 2018 Spitfire Mark III

I know what your saying having a way to remove the fenders would be neat and your weight idea to keep the fenders up right sound's awesome! What if you were to use a thin sheet of clear plastic for the backer plate to help locate the axle holes where you need them? You can always paint it later to m...

2018 Spitfire Mark III

Man kcarchitect what a job you did on the Spitfire Mark lll ! It's different and I like it how it turned out! Just an idea to look at for your fenders.. Would be to shave off the front axles some And build back plate that matches your fender design! Kind of like an air shield behind the fender! Now ...

Re: Rail Riding Question - indenting RR wheel

No problem scoutdad01, Chalk up my way of thinking that the RR wheel could also be right rear . Say don't forget about the inside wheel hubs! even though the car block is not 1 3/4" wide.. the inside rims between the front wheels will still be right at 1 3/4" with the hubs pushed up to the car body....

Re: Rail Riding Question - indenting RR wheel

Hi scoutdad01, and welcome! When you say indenting the axle grove.. for the RR Wheel! Do you mean the for the front dominant wheel.. Or the right rear wheel ? Most of the time builders will indent the car body by 1/16'' for there front dominant wheel only! And yes some will also cut a grove around t...

Re: 2018 Spitfire Mark III

What a nice job your doing! Edit: Well Kcarchitect.. I went and did it! I went hole hog on a high end m...

transferring dry weights?

That's a very fancy but strange rule for weights! It could be that the ruling just means any weight type that can be adjusted will be allowed. However my thought's are more so on this weight style that treads into a 3/8 drilled hole! That allow's you to adjust and transfer the weight front to back o...

Re: 2018 Spitfire Mark III

kcarchitect,
In the photo just over your weights : Is that some of the paper wood veneer you were telling me about.
Look's handy.. I'm going to have to look into getting some to try out!

Is it the adhesive backed type veneer?

Don't forget that a link to that Maximum Velocity News Letter.

Can be seen on your topic are 2009 wheel bores on an angle.
