Topic: This is the Indy car page.

Beau brought his new Indy car to the Jan. 26th. 2013 race. After the race was over he tested it. It turned in the very low 4.3's! This is going to be a very fast class for next season. I am considering a summer race with these cars. There is a picture of Beau's Indy car on the Projects page. It has yet to be painted. His car is powered by a Hawk 7 on a Scholer Pantara chassis.

Update: No Indy cars have been built beyond Beau's. The class is not on the schedule yet for the 2015 season. Maybe if it was put on the schedule there would be a few put together. So stay tuned.

I am still on the Indy car thing. I have updated the chassis rules, the chassis is to be an open chassis. The Scholers are evidently going away as Professor Motor has been out of our favorite one for at least 8 months and they can't get a hold of anyone at Scholer. So, buy or build and let's get this thing going, maybe for the 2016 season!

From now on this page will be known as the F1 page. We will have the F1 on the schedule in 2017.

Beau's new F1.

I finished this F1 last March or so ( see the Projects page ). We have a couple F1 races toward the end of the season ( 2017 ). Beau and I already tested our F1's and they handle great, should be a fun class with the open wheels as an added challenge! I am in the process of building another one for Blake and then another one for Dwayne. We can have a race with 5 people, so we need one more!

Marty is in the process of building an F1 car and John bought a body, so things are looking up for the class.

Beau discovered several other 4.5" Indy car bodies that will be added to the body list. He also ordered 5 of the Outasite #0520 body to be put in the inventory of bodies for sale.

The previous posts to this topic were copied over from the Northwest True Scale Racers site with Howie's permission. The NTSR site is scheduled to close down at the end of this year. I will be copying over as much of the great information posted there as possible in the next few months.  =====Bill

When I read Indy Cars, I was picturing Watsons, I should have known better.

Re: This is the Indy car page.

Update on the Indy class: As most know I have been trying to get an Indy class up and running for at least the last 4yrs. Well I think we are finally seeing the light at the end of the long tunnel. Beau found a 4.5" Indy car complete with everything except motor, gears and guide flag. The cost? $59.99, great price. I ordered 10 of them and they are all taken except one which will go on the parts rack. With that count and the two racers who already have one we have 11 Indy racers to start off the class. This class will be a very spec class. The car is made by Pro track, part #PT651. We will run the Hawk 7 motor. Beau has been working on handling issues and he brought his car over today and we managed to get the car to handle quite well and I think there is more to come. He is trying to make it easy for all racers to do the same minor changes to make the car handle better. We will have a special Indy race in May.

Re: This is the Indy car page.

I guess I had better attach my wing and get it painted.

Re: This is the Indy car page.

Update: all 10 Indy cars have been spoken for. If you want one you can order them from Professor Motor.

I just ordered 10 Hawk 7 motors that we will run in these cars and will have 6 on the parts rack if any one is interested.
