Homebuilt Electric Off-Road Cars
After looking at oOple.com for awhile, iam now really wanting to build me my own Mod Truck. Ive got a really good idea goin on, just putting it into action.
Iam gonna base it off of XTM Racing Nitro X-Cellarator. Itll be a Mid Mount Truck, with the Stock Suspension. But using a Custom Chassis.
Ive reading threads on oOple.com that some people were using 5-cells. Would this be a good idea to incorparate in my Truck? Itll be lighter, thus moving weight were i want it?
Since iam mainly gonna be racing on 1/8th scale tracks. Would a longer wheelbase be optimal? But, thats when you start getting into body problems. I think if i make the Truck 5-10mm longer, ill have no body to fit it. Unless i make my own???
What chassis material should i use? Was either thinking G-10 or Carbon Fiber. G-10 is cheaper, but not as strong as Carbon Fiber though.
Comments/Tips/Tricks/Ideas/ETC. is welcomed!
