This model uses a specially prepared TSR chassis fitted with a single removable traction magnet, special TSR-Ortmann tires on fiberglass-filled wheels and all the mods to make it the fastest, best-handling car on your Carrera track. Slight modifications of the guide pin and taping the flush magnet are necessary to run this car on any track where the rails are raised from the surface, such as Ninco, Scalextric, SCX…
The new car retails of $109.95 and is available in 3 different color schemes.
We had an opportunity to test the new Sunred GTR on the Los Angeles Slot Car museum track (www.lascm.com) and were not disappointed. The car ran beautifully and flawlessly, despite the track being so “green” from lack of use as yet. The lightweight body is hardly heavier than a vacuum formed shell and is nicely detailed. The chassis was run with a single traction magnet because of the track conditions, then without after the track was cleaned. Using only 10.5 volts from the adjustable power supplies, the car was very easy to drive and comparative tests with cars supposed to be the best performing on the market showed once again that there is little to compare as the TSR machine simply left them breathing hard in its dust.
Ready to pounce on the unsuspecting…
The very light body is affixed onto the chassis with four straight pins.
The chassis is fitted with all current upgrades and is truly ready to race right out of the box.
The TSR Sunred GTR is now available in 3 different and attractive paint schemes.
TSR offers three kits to help build this gorgeous car. The basic body kit includes a resin body and accessories plus a sheet of metal parts. A deluxe kit offers the same with painted body parts and an extensive decal sheet. The complete kit includes a complete, ready to race chassis that bolts right onto the body.
The kits are sold in a gift box with assembly instructions and recommendations.
To mount another Slot It Porsche 956 body is easy using the T2307 Automatic Body Mounting Tool. The body or chassis need no alteration. The chassis is set in position “A” (most backwards) and the front axle in position “3″ (most forward). The pin tubing are shortened by 1/16″ with the Dremel disk, then installed on the chassis (see pictures below). The body has little vertical ridges where the front plastic tubing stops bump, perfectly locating the body. Use the Automatic Body-Mounting Tool and a # 73 drill fitted at the end of an X-Acto handle.
This pictures shows the stock Slot.It Porsche (below) with the TSR version on top. Note that part of the Slot.It chassis was trimmed to provide the aero under-tray bolted back to the body.
This shows the chassis setup: steel pan in position “A”, front axle in position “3″, body-mounting pin tubing and stops in place.
4 straight pins and it’s done.
The chassis bottom shows the fitment of the TSC25 guide pin in its most effective position.
