4 degrees really isn't much. a lot of touring cars are stock with 4 degree blocks. I have heard of f1 cars being run with as much as 8. I haven't tried that much though.

The unusual thing is the fact that the caster angle is "front / rear" (so plunging forward front hub) in stead of "front \ rear" (plunging backward front hub), which is more usual in TC for example.
This is not very clear if you read it but if you imagine that, you could see how the set-up is strange for that point...

It's same angle as TC.

Sorry for the confusion......

You misunderstand- Sean means the front (of the car) caster is -4 degrees of course

Never adjust ride height w/ droop screws, always through the spring collars.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Default Greatly Appreciate the effort

Spring71,

Thank you for taking the time to not only post your set-up sheet but also posting links to the parts used. I hope that with good info like this there will be more interest in the NON-Direct drive car.

Hi guys,

here is the way how I imagine the belt drive conversion (Charles Lightfoot inspirations ). It's still on its way but it is nearly finished; I had to make a new layshaft and to drill the motor mount to put bearings for the shaft...
















Feel free to ask me any questions and/or tell me what you think about it

Cheers,
G-rem

Gear Diff, even if the ball diff is supposed to be better for this class...anyway, I could put both if I want, I'll just have to move the center pully for a good centering.

Stay tuned

What Spur is that G-rem?
Excuse my ignorance but is that 48 pitch?
What diff/ pully are you planning on using?

Looks very good G-rem!! Nice work!!

It is a Panaracer 64 pitch 88t. But I think I will have to change it for a smaller one, maybe a Xenon VSS for direct drive cars, with a super large motor pinion

I'm planning to use a 15t center pulley and the gear diff from the Sakura XI Sport. It means that I would have a 2.53 internal ratio, but I think I have enough space to put a bigger center pulley, maybe 18t, which would mean 2.1 internal ratio...not so bad

Has anyone mocked up longitudinally mounting the motor? With a bevel type gear set like this: bevel differential . I think it could fit. The drive shafts from the diff to the wheel don't have to be at a right angle with how the drive shaft connects to the diff, so I think you could make room by pushing the motor and diff back farther. Hard to describe without a picture...

Wow, your conversion looks a lot cleaner than mine.

Looking forward to seeing the final version....
