I have to say that I have droven and tested about
every 12 scale Car on the planet( and lerned quite a lot).
I than designed a link Car with the battery apart.
I understand now that driving a link Car in the US with hige grip
and in Europa with low grip is not the same.
I personlly feel that a t-bar has more stering and is more
consisten from run to run.
Breaking the t-bar is not a good thing, it will make it
impossible to complete the run and you will loose important
track time, and have to go back to replace the t-bar.
Next time you go out you maybe are going to be
worried about breaking it again.
The side links are working great, to proctect the t-bar.
Sow far not a crack in the t-bar, more testing
has to be done.
The CRC GenX body shell holes will be a direct fit.
YOU can use a normal Associated t-bar but it has to be 19 mm wide.
You can run it with link or without, but the t-bar has to be there.
To run links only is not an option.
The battery cannot be moved. Since i will make a pure BL Car i need
the space and having a battery brace adds more weight to the Car.
Geting the battery out off the Car in a hard crash will be very difficult.
The weight of the Car is something i have to work on.
The most importen area here are the Chassis.
I don't like the cut outs, so i think i will do lines
about 2.4 mm or 1.6 mm thick,side by side, so you can place you
electronics or whatever you whant without big holes through which
the reciver migh fall through.
The Frontend is a mix off Associated and CRC parts.
This had to be done to complete the design.
The important thing here is that the frontend has damping.
(Take a look at the white delrin A arm under the CRC A arm)
