Rebuilding an original Worlds (A series of builds by rcpelle)

Post by rcpelle »

Yes I got hooked and now have a finished B3 build and three other builds going. I am dedicating a thread to each.

This one is about a Worlds I found on FB Marketplace. The post had a rere image so it was only when enquiring that I found out it was about an original Worlds in good condition and full electronics pack. It looked like this when I received it. It is used very little, but the owner had drilled a few annoying holes in the chassis.

I will clean it and build it as the team ran the cars in 1995 just before the B2 was launched. Inspired by Dreschers Euros winning car from that year but by no means a replica.

Putting it all together while working on all parts. Polishing hinge pins and king pins. Making everything move freely. Giving it a blue screw makeover and working on the aluminum edges and trimming the motor mount (even though it was quite mint).

Coming together and not like a new car, but like a racer prepared for the next big meeting.

Getting closer. Got some shocks built tonight and cleaned the steel turnbuckles and white ball ends a bit. Looking quite tight.
