Back to the motors. Are we going to be better off driving the rear end with belts or a direct gear driven setup?
Shaft or pan car.
Pan car got better potential since you get more space for batteries. It also has less resistance in the "drive train".
Shaft is easier to drive.
you people should consider having a driver and so on in it so it becomes more close to the full size car. that's a bonus right away from the teacher.
