Beast Tether Cars – 51 Merc Bonneville Special

This 1/18th scale die-cast "Lead Sled" has been kicking around the shop for so long waiting for conversion that the original paint was ruined and some of the plastic body parts broke. I stripped all the plastic and paint from the body and made new bumpers, headlights and the grill out of aluminum billet, the tail lights are the only plastic pieces left on the body. I wondered how the body would look polished and after much sanding you can see the results, if it didn't work out I was just going to paint it flat black. The shine is protected with a couple of applications of Turtle Wax car wax. Most die-cast cars doors don't really fit that well especially after getting caught in a buffing wheel and sailing across the shop, took three hours to straighten out the drivers door. I have a rubber band installed just to keep them closed and you may notice in the photos that the passenger door doesn't fit right, the rubber band was pulling the wrong way so after adjustment it fits fine. For running though you will need to remove the rubber band and perhaps use a piece of clear tape to keep the doors and deck lids from flying open. The body is easily removed just by opening the doors and removing a 4-40 screw in each door sill. Anyway, this is somewhat how I imagine a '51 Merc would look getting ready to run on the salt flats.The chassis and all other aluminum parts are milled from 6061T-6 billet. Both axles and the drive shaft are made from drill rod , everything rides on bearings. Gears are 2:1 ratio from HPI Racing, pinned in place on the axle, press fit and tapered screw hold the pinion in place. The polished pieces on the chassis just have a working polish to help keep the price down as I consider the car a runner although it does look pretty darn good. Tether attachments are 1/8th tool steel and all fasteners are grade 8 except for stainless ones on the fuel tank and exhaust. weight 3 lbs 4 oz length 11 inches height 3 inches wheelbase 6 3/8 inches tread width front 3 7/16 inches tread width rear 3 5/16 inches tire diameter 1 7/8 inches Manufacturer: Beast Tether Cars Offered on: eBay eBay ID: beastranger By: Doug Parker
