It won't be the first time some company steals / copies some idea off Cristian . BTW that car is sick looking , even upside down it looks fast

I got to see the V2 up close and it looks great. Sadly, I didn't get to see the innovative front end. The guy on his first run broke the lower carbon fiber arm.

Luckily he's ordered one and it will be arriving soon. The chassis design and layout looks great. Well done Cristian!

Damn, broke and arm? That's the first one I have heard of and I have seen some spectacular hits.

Yes. Landau showed us on the arm breakage. It was with a modified motor and much harder barriers. The A arms have since been revised.

The person, Tom Koyae said to me, it might be occurred at checking and rebuilding process before he run. He removed pivot parts from sus-arm and installed. There is no clearance between them, it need exactly straight install. He is waiting for new aluminum chassis and arm from RSD.

Anyway, how do you/Ed think about AXON Supper gear and Deff lube?

Is the V2 compatible with a micro servo? As I see the mount has changed to 'standard' in the description.

The car is actually optimal when you run an Airtonics 94761 or the Sanwa equivalent. These are about as small as they get when it comes to servos and are recommended to get down to minimum weight easier.

Had another quick practice with the car last night. Car feels really positive with a ton of steering!

Car feels and looks great! Looking forward to some actual racing when the track is gripped up!




Thanks Christian!

The v2 is actually better than you would think. I have tested reedy, Powers etc and this seems to have them covered. Especially at the end of the run. The 24k seems to be the motor to have though. We run euro stock 10.5. At the beginning of the run the guys with 24k are 3-5km faster on the straight at the beginning of the run. Please excuse my soldering.... Did it while jetlagged

His motor looks like the Trackstar Hexitron sold at Hobbyking. As for the 9602 servo. The 9602 is a taller servo than the 9650, but the same width and thickness. The 9602 will just fit depending how you mount and shim it on the servo mounts. The issue will be which servo saver will you use. If you use an Xray servo saver, you will have issues with it hitting the damper tube. To get around this, you can attempt to mount the damper tube up front in the optional holes on the arms. Cristian can chime in on something he's working on as far as servo plates, but the 9602 will fit but not have much room to move around. It'll basically be in the same position as my 9650. If you have any more questions on this, just let me know.

Not sure what the Hexitron is. Just know them as a v2. At our track i do give up a little to the guys with 24k but not too much.
