T-jet Race Parts

updated 022417

With the rise in popularity of HO T-jet racing a number of small manufacturers have produced many excellent products to make your Aurora Thunderjet 500 car go faster, handle better and run smoother.  In
an effort to provide ‘one stop shopping’ for the HO racing enthusiast I have
gathered some of the better parts and tools in one location for easier shopping.
Due to the limited availability of many of these parts you must call to
reserve your order before sending payment.  Please
see the home page or the bottom of this page for phone number to call.  Check my hours page to see when we are open.

Bodies:
You may be surprised to see bodies under the heading of ‘handling’
rather than, say, ‘appearance’ for example.
Numerous tests by experienced racers have shown that the choice of body
definitely affects your cars handling.  These
bodies have been recommended by top national t-jet racers as being among the
‘best handling’ At the present time there are only one or two makers of approved Fray and ECHORR bodies.  Below are approved Greg’s Garage bodies.
