Vintage Indy 500

I’ve been looking at Tether Car Racing and it has got me thinking about building a model of an Indy 500 car.

I’m thinking about something around the 1950’s era. Although I like the tether cars I’m thinking that my car may be radio controlled.


Just been looking around at tyres and they look difficult to buy. Will do some more digging and add a note here.

Engines: the initial idea was to use an authentic tether car type engine, but must admit that I want to run this as a radio control car and display it, so based on this electric would be cleaner. However, there is still an urge to use a single cylinder 2-stroke to get the look.
