The body youre having pulled is awesome too. I wish your compnay the best of luck-hint hint-let me know if you want any hardcore carpet testing done
I'll be MORE than happy to wring it out for you.
That was the first thing I did was the steering geometry.
It is sweet and no lump and the front suspension all mounts to the upper plate and you remove the 4 screws and you have the upper plate in your hand and the suspension this will make it easy to work on.
plus it has a anti roll bar setup. it is more like the old kyosho and some 1/5 scale cars and now the New F180 Serpent.
The Rear is belt drive it has a 72 tooth 48p spur and can use 64 pitch as well.
I have made Aluminum rear diff and suspension plates and the shock mounts and pivot mount there like the F201 but we are having new rockers made and it has a swaybar much like a touring car.
We were going to make it with a slipper clutch but most of the people out the have talked me out of it.
The Hpi Dbox would be cool for this car and all cars not only drift cars But I doubt they will let you race with a driver assist unit on the car. LOL
As for the touring car when it is done I will be looking for a few tracks and racers in the country to send one for testing.
We are also making a dirt buggy 1/10 4X4. I made one back in 96 or 99 from a HPI Pro 4 I think it was 99 anyway I had a blast with it.
So we will do it again.
I do love this thing
