Builders Notes: (By Terry Flynn)

[002a]

It almost seems that the RiggenHO.com Limited Editions were getting routine. We’ve done quite a few in the last two years. But this year just when I thought we couldn’t think of anything new and crazy, Ron comes up with the Crowe Anglewinders, The Raynoda 4000s, and, now the A/FX Magna-Lites.

The RiggenHO Magna-Lite Limited Edition is based on a July 1975 “Speed & Sport” article by Gary Beedle. Click here for a copy of that article. As you can read, there were a lot of cool hop-up parts used in the original car. As you will also note, the original parts list called for one “Geek to put it together.” Hmm… what are you trying to tell me Ron??

In order to keep the price of the cars at some manageable level, we had to forgo most of the ‘unobtainium’ parts. However, items like the JW’s Speed Parts aluminum independent front end sets that are CNC produced are probably better than the original spec TCP part. Also the custom 4 ohm 2-lam DC HO Motor I believe is more drivable than a heavier Quad lam motor. Quad motors to me exhibit too much of a ‘fly-wheel’ effect. They take more time to spin up and carry too much speed into tight turns.

The keep things changed up even more, we went with Slade “Sluggo Slots” Brown’s silicone sponge tires. His multi-coat process produces a quite durable tire. These particular tires’ profile allows just enough drift in the corners to set the car up for apex acceleration.

Joe “Noose” Neumeister was tapped to paint period correct liveries. It is always a nervous pleasure to trim and mount his work. This round of lexans is among my favorites to date. It’s hard to choose a favorite one.

This has been a fun build for me and a different challenge. There were some unique issues that “if it doesn’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger.” Perhaps we can do another run sometime if the loyal RiggenHO.com customers twist our arms enough.

OK I havnt had as much time as id like for this project but I'm adding so pics I have as of now. The first step is finding and matching a good chassis and top plate I use drill blanks to check if the chassis and top plate are square and well aligned. I use .059 bushings in the rear axel holes and a drill blank axel green locktite to secure the pinion gear to axel and a .010 spacer between gear and chassis. I install arm and gears and check mess without magnets installed once I'm happy with this step I install the magnets springs and brushes. Lastly I install the rear rims and tires and ft end. I have listed all parts I used for this build above. If you have and questions feel free to message me. Hope this helps for now I will post more as time allows.

Hey Mark,
On the razor ft end did you make the spacers between rim and chassis ?
I ordered a couple sets they didn't come with spacers

I use .059 brass bushings from Quicker Engineering. Wizzard and Lucky Bob's also has bushings. Brass,aluminum or plastic tubing cut to length also works well.
