Got some pics at last.
First is a pic of both cars. You can see how much lower the rear diff case sits on the car on the right. Compare the case with the arm mounts to see the difference.
Second pic is steering detail, using mainly Yokomo parts.
Third pic is a side view. You can see how low it all is from this view. The motor is about the highest item in the whole car, and that is actually lower than normal too. 100 tooth spur just doesn't come out the bottom.
We ran the car today. The track was very dusty but we still made some respectable times. Certainly quicker than all others running there today.
We ran 6 packs, simply getting the car back on it's Malta set up after our trip to the Ko Gp, where we had to make a number of changes.
The main difference with this car, compared to the normal one is that because of the much lower C of G it runs much flatter - less roll. It therefore needs less camber change so your roll centre is up slightly - closer to the C of G, which is ideal.
There is still a bit of bump steer, but that's an easy one; just a matter of playing with steering arm angles (shimming).
