Hey Everyone,

I know I've been MIA for a while, but I figured I'd show you guys what I've been doing at school in my absence. As some of you know, I'm going to school studying Plastics and Vehicle Engineering that takes up a lot of my time from racing. I'm just finishing up a surface modeling class and for my project I created a 3D surface model of a Mazda RX-7. I modified it and designed my own rear wing, rear wing supports, front bumper, side skirts, headlights and tire/wheel package. After designing the additional parts, I had to blend and integrate them into the model. All done in CATIA V5 in the Generative Shape Design workbench for those of you that know the program. It's not perfect, but I still think it came out pretty good. I'm going to massage it over the summer and see if I can get it any better and add more detail. I'll probably make a better rear wing... I'm not happy with it. Enjoy!

-Korey

That looks pretty cool Korey. I'd do the rear wing as a two-tier reverse-curved wing with long-ish side dams

Its funny... I did the wing before the car itself and figured I'd change it later. Then I realized it's all due tomorrow and never changed it!

Who plans on moving over to the TCX when it comes out? Any specific features that make the TCX a "must have" for you?

I'm in for one. Lipo chassis, narrow bulk heads, double steering cranks and a chassis with more flex are the major things I like.

Whats the largest battery dims for a lipo pack to fit in a Cyclone TC with the HBS67695 Lipo Battery upper deck installed? I don't really want to grind anything.

This is the upper deck...

What do you guys do to secure your lipo to the TC? I am converting my cyclone S to a TC, already have most of the important parts, including the upper and main carbon chassis. Before I converted to the carbon chassis, my lipo had a place to sit (in the plastic tub) but now, I have to use battery tape! I run three batteries, and am sick of having to retape them! The exotech chassis is nice and all, but at almost $100 I would rather sell my roller and add $100 to get a TC-X preorder!

P.S. Tony Vega, I will take measurements when I get home, I have the lipo upper deck, and an oversize 2s lipo, Fits like a glove, but as stated above it needs to be strapped down!
