Bottom view of Mike's car. I believe Greg Gilbert built this chassis from parts of 2 different chassis.


image

This is same Gilbert chassis which Mike has driven for several Retro Pro races.

Mike's car powered by an American Armature Pro Slot motor

Doug Matthes' winning Retro Pro car was designed/built by Allen Low.

Bottom view of Doug's Low chassis shows the "mini" interior floppys.

Doug's Low chassis is old by slotracing standards.


image

Allen Low originally built this chassis well over a year ago.


image

Doug's Low chassis has held up very well over time and continues to be a fast car.

Dennis "Foamy" Hill's 3rd place car set fast race lap of 3.187 seconds on the BPR Kingleman track. Typical Foamy car, it's a JET!

Oops out of focus!

Here's a photo taken at last month's race on the King track. Foamy used the same chassis for today's Retro Pro race on the short Kingleman track.
