"ff-3" A Tether Car By Beast Picco Power :
"FF-3" a Tether Car by Beast !! I built this car to resemble one of the early mid engined formula race cars of the '60s but mostly like a Formula Ford. To get the look of the car right I had to make it front wheel drive and make the gearbox out of brass so that the car would balance. The rear dummy gearbox is attached to the backcase of the engine as is the full size car. Both rear wheels are free wheeling on two bearings for each wheel. The whole car is milled from 6061T-6 aluminum billet, no castings are used except for the engine.
The engine is the Picco P-zero .8cc (.061) converted from R/C car with a custom venturi and Enya needle valve. These engines are rated at 35,000 rpm on 20% fuel. The engine is new and comes with the box, paper work, R/C carb and whatever else was in the box. The custom flywheel is made of aluminum to save weight on the back of the car.
The 3/16ths drill rod drive shaft/pinion gear shaft enters the gearbox riding on two bearings. The gears are from HPI Racing with a 2:1 ratio, press fit onto their shafts with the axle gear pinned in place. The drill rod axle rides on two bearings as well.
The wrap around fuel tank should hold almost 1/2 ounce of fuel for plenty of running time ! The 6 inch pan handle is made from 1/8th inch thick steel. Grade 8 fasteners are used throughout except for the fuel tank and body screws which are stainless. The custom exhaust is functional.
Interior of the body has been glass bead blasted for a nice satin finish, everything else has been given a nice polish. The polish made getting really sharp photos a little difficult! What you see is what you get, a great looking car for your shelf or desk, plus you can take it out and run it !!length 8 3/8 inches
