I just completed my other cheetah
Got some laps in, its faster then the good deal I got for now.

Both cars need ride height adjustments.
the car I built got down to 2.303 and ran consistant 2.3 second laps

The other can dip into the 2.3's but really run 2.4 consistantly.

Just replaced the old gears, stuck on a ZONE-2 pinion & crown!
Started running some hot laps!

Hit a 2.16!

It been years since I broke the 2.2 barrier!

About 4 or 5 years ago when I ran unlimiteds in our local series, I hit 2.002.

So my goal is to get back down there.

I figure the car I ran at the nats will be for short tracks (16 feet) :lol: :lol:
This will be my fast track car!

I am to excited about having 2 working cheetahs again to sell them.

So I am still working on a 3rd 1 to sell.

Ron Miller was ZONE-2 out of central Penn.

He started off making ZONE-2 tires, which were pretty nice.
Then he started making the ZONE-2 gears which have a very different cut to the teeth.

They hold up better then any other metal gears I have used, and have nice mesh!

But he was too successful! So it seems someone did not like it and they(or had some one ) broke into his house, and stole only the slot car manufacturing parts and equipment. They left the racing stuff, and everything else!

So he no longer is involved in slots

Thats how sick some people can get.

Bob super products has some crowns left
