It is all about track size and rollout.
Have been running a 78 tooth spur with a 7.5 motor with power program on a 220 meter long track.
Othere did run a 5.5 with a 81 spur gear.
Tires where 60MM but i have been running 55MM also but with bigger pinion then 25.

Regards Roy

Hi,

without knowing it, I designed a multilink rear suspension and coil-over front suspension that is pretty similar to the car in the pictures on the first page of this thread.

Unfortunately it seems I do not have enough posts yet to place the photos again, they are in post 13 on page one of this topic.

The ideas seemed to have died out, everyone is back to kingpin front suspension and 'bending chassis' rear. Is there a simple explanation for it?

Thanks!

Hugo

Default rc10l2 lower pod plate

I have plans for a l2 podplate from 3mm aluminium 7075 t6. When it is finished I will make some pics.
@ 2wdrive, just curious if these were ever made?

yes I did but I made a slight mistake of making them for 3mm screws instead of the original 4/40 screws. (was easier as the angle of the countersunk was easier to mill that way). I am using the old crc bulkheads for my rc10l2 and retapping the 4/40 thread to 3mm didn't go well as the CRC bulkheads are so hard the new threads broke off when retapping.

Retapping the IRS bulkheads is no problem though.

Thanks for the reply and good info, is the thicker 3mm plate still flush with bottom of the chassis? Also any chance you would be willing to make a couple of these available for sale?(I understand if not) I'm looking to convert a L2O rear pod to the wide road course pod and the lower plate is very hard to find.

These pictures are from the prototype with some extra features so it is not a 100% copy. The bottom of the plate is flush with bottom of the chassis.









I outsourced the final design and production to someone else and I have to ask if he wants to mill them again. With postage and currency conversion from to $ it will not be cheap. Also you will have to retap the bulkheads to 3mm screws.

To make a L2O wider I think you also need to make the front wider?

Hi Hugo,

It is simplicity of the kingpin that makes most drivers go to the kingpin design. In theory front suspension with shock etc are better but when racing it really doesn't matter that much and the simplicity and ease of adjustments/maintenance etc of the kingpin makes it for many drivers an easy choice. Same for the back.

Experimenting is part of the hobby and it is fun to design something and show people your skills and idea's so please continue with the design and show the results .

@2wdrive:
Nice looking pics, your car is a piece of electro-mechanical art. I'm not going to inconvenience you with that process for lower plates . I'll just be patient until I find one lol or maybe I'll find a complete L2. You are correct on the narrow L20 front end. I currently have a 10L rolling chassis, and have the opportunity to pick up a L2O rolling chassis cheap. So I was kicking around the idea of putting the L2O front end on the 10L, but then I'd really like to utilize the L2 rear pod setup with IRS bulkheads/diff/axle. Time will tell and I have my Bolink to mess with for now.

Look closer at the car... It is a T-bar car and not a link like your showing

I'm pretty sure his upper pod plate was made by PRC and they are now out of business.
