Another outstanding Foamy chassis


image

Note how Foamy soldered the positive lead to the can. The D3 TSR motor comes with a shorting tab on the positive terminal. The tab is easily removable or in this case can be used.


image

Paul Sterrett's D3 NASCAR chassis (sorry for the out of focus photo!).


image

Paul's winning NASCAR chassis is similar to his original D3 Can Am chassis design.


image

Paul's simple approach to chassis design is also very effective.


image

Simple chassis design in this case also means very fast!

Oscar Morales drove this Foamy chassis to 3rd place

This Foamy design is similar to his Retro Anglewinder chassis.
