Here we go. To me, a car is a reflection of the builders ideas. Doesn't make any of it right or wrong. Just opinions and ideas from that period of time. What this car represents is the best of my opinions, at this point in time. And I like how it feels on and off the track. I like it a lot.
Car is using 12r5 dampening, front to back and side to side. It's also drilled for damper tubes if you want to try those.
I'm going through this phase right now where I'm convinced a rollover antenna is actually just a mechanism to 100% ensure that your car is pole vaulted from the racing surface in the event of an incident
. I'd rather slide on my roof. It's likely going to get a shock mount though.
I hate a tight pod, so this is roomy. This pod is 1/12th only, and is designed to run a 43mm tire with 4mm of ride height in the absolute center of the adjuster. Axle looks more tidy in the center of the adjuster. Pod is well balanced for a brushless motor. Pod can take a 74 spur to a 65 pinion. (and the 65 still doesn't hit). Chassis has a long battery area, 2mm longer than most. I like tuning the car with cell position. It's fun.
I'm actually kinda proud of this part, the nub on the "pod rod"
is to help set overall width on the rear WITHOUT having to flip the car upside down and try and stab your caliper in some little hole and then guess how big the hole is and do a bunch of math to estimate your track width. Slap a caliper on it, subtract 1mm, that's it.
No need to flip the car all around, getting crud on your shirt, etc. Just slap a caliper on it.
