first test runs with the BURI-Racer E1 leightweight:
all screws titanium and aluminum parts reworked
motor: Tenshock TS SC-401 - 3400 RPM/V diameter 36mm with 5mm shaft
esc: SkyRc Toro TS120A (3s) battery: 3s 5500 45c
chassis weight with all components 1535g ready to run: 1880g

We did run it with the original motor pinion (12t): Everything was quite ok, speed could be a bit better, but smooth handling.
At all: same to airwaves expirience. the motor temp level is higher than with 1/8 motors and the esc broke at the 5th battery run.... We have to replace the esc to a 150A...

So my reccomendation is to use 4s + standard 42mm motor + standard escs .
You can find solid components for really good prizes, for example my set (without local taxes / VAT): standard motor 1900kv for 50 Euro, Hobbywing WP-SC8 for 75 Euro and batteries 4s/5000/3c for 62 Euro.
Thats a very good combination, stable and you can drive fast at all. It doesnt need more to have fun!

So I ran my E1 on Saturday on our little track. It was interesting, first run of the year, a lot of dust, hard to drive but funny...

First observation, our track is designed for 1/10th touring cars, so it is too small for an E1, even in 3s... I've runned the car with a TS150, a Hobbywing SC motor at 4000kv and a 2s battery... Perfect for the track, very funny to race...

Second observation, the aluminum adapter for 32DP module is working perfectly. The car transmission sound is now comparable to a 1/10th buggy sound.

Third observation, under this specific load, the rear carbon axle handle 100% of the power and has no weak mark anywhere.

So I know that's not exactly the configuration you have developed the car for, but that's still funny!

I hope I can try the car with 3S on a bigger track soon...

First, that's not my track... That's the track I hope I can try my E1 on soon...
my local track is there : https://goo.gl/maps/z4LjpUjdqJS2, you can see on the pictures that's a little bit smaller...

Then, This track is located in Aigle, in Switzerland. I think FAA has nothing to say about that, as the drone legislation is different from USA... From what I'm seeing in the video, there is nothing reprehensible (and this is not an highway, just a simple road).

Default Ride height adjustment?

Dear Thomas,

I'm very impressed at the Buri-racer and I think the E2 is an even better design (belt is more centred)

What I am curious about is how ride height is changed? for front and rear? Surely a car meant to run foams must have a way to change ride height?

Thanks for the effort! It's very well done!

Alexander

This thread is around the model cars in this case the BURI-Racer.
Hopefully other discussions can be done outside


The ride height can be adjusted at the rear axle with the excentric plastic bearing inserts, this means +/- 1mm. At the front axle you can place shims (1mm or 2mm) under the swingplate.

It is shown in the manual (you can download at: www.buri-racer.at )


The BURI-Racer E1 is the absolutely minimized car and shall be the basic version. Minimum need of maintenance and setup, but still verry fast and a lot of fun to drive!

The BURI-Racer E2 - the prototype exists - will be an advanced model. The belt in the middle and the 2 batteries besides mean more complexity. Also the front Pivot-balls. So the E2 will be for more expirienced drivers and a bit more expansive.

At all: My target is to establish an international 1/8th electric stock class with limited motors. The costs should stay on a low level and the differences of the cars be reduced.
