Default The "money is no object" car

Thought it would be kinda interesting to see what features\design changes people would like to see in a buggy\truggy assuming money is no object :-)

For example, I'd love to have an engine with electronic fuel injection so I never had to tune the little f%!kers again. So, if you've ever thought, damn I'd love to see THAT on my buggy, let us all know.

Buy a caster rtr buggy and upgrade/JerryRig bits one part at a time, till you get a full kyosho tki3 buggy. Also, buy a Taiwanese force engine, do the same part by part till you get a novarossi. Same goes for electronics till you get a sanwa, ko, futaba race setup.

You'll have not objected to spending a lot of money, by the time you get to this point...

You can get that tomorrowif you wan`t :-) Mount a helicopter gyro in your car. Several people have done this to quite a result. Not exactly the same thing but quite close.

Shocks with High speed compression, low speed compression and rebound clicker adjustments like motocross shocks. Then I would be a happy camper.

Electronic adjustable shocks are not that difficult. There are enough fluids which change viscocity with the influence of a current thruogh it. With a precision GPS sensor you could make a trackmapping to soften and harden the shocks.

Definitely a motocross type shock would be nice. (Like stated from others.)

Fuel injection.. wouldn't be bad, but not too sure on that one.

What I really need are lasers.... that way I can destroy all who pass me.. lol.

Lol I want three red turtle shells circling me.

But we do need advanced shocks and diff technologies.
That's the only place that they can develop to make the cars faster imo.

There are two things prohibiting most of what you guys want. The rules prevent the ability to adjust the car on track via telemetry (passive data acquisition is legal). And the small size of our equipment. With nano engineering. I suppose it could be possible. That is where the if money were no object comes into play.

People asking for fuel injection, you still going to have to tune the motor. Infact you probably make it even worse as then you will be paying out the ass for tunes.
