Traxxas Sprint Car

Post by Dangeruss »

It doesn't get any more vintage than a 1920's sprint car. Anyone see this $1500 Snap-On collectable?

Whoa! That is cool! Not $1500 cool and not "ok I will buy a Traxxas" cool, but I do love the idea. I find old Sprint/Indy/board track racers fascinating.

That may be the coolest Traxxas ever made.

Agreed, not $1500 cool, but I'd love to see the chassis layout.

I am about to get into hand building some of those suspension parts. Part of me wishes they would make parts available for this kit.
I build RCs like people would have done back in the '90s ..................................... if they had 3D printers.

Agreed, but if someone has one and wants to post detailed pics, I will look at 'em :D

Traxxas probably already has a team of lawyers rummaging through 100 year old Indy 500 race coverage looking for copyright infringements. Jimmy Murphy's great great grandkids can expect a subpoena by noon tomorrow.

Is there a single leaf spring on each axle?

IS the motor mounted vertically? That’s really odd.

It's time to stand up to the bully. Support the companies that support the industry, not the ones that tear it down. Say no to Traxxas

Cool concept, but I’d only be interested in something all “metal”. Even still, I probably wouldn’t buy it.

Yep, transverse leafs. Early Cobras and most Vettes had them.

The chassis looks interesting.
I drove a C4 Vette for many years and they used a single transverse leaf spring at both ends and they were PLASTIC! :shock:
