So time for my second car
Budget at the moment is no concern. I built my first electric car to get a flavour of the building process and I gotta say I was let down because it was simple and easy. I didn't really learn anything. I didn't even need the manual to assemble the drivetrain. But then again I got mechanical engineering background so I got the advantage of instantly recognising key parts.
So the battle is between Velox V10 and Capricon Lab-c01. I love those two just from the looks alone. As stated previously in other threads I am no racer so spare parts for repairs after crashes are not exactly a high priority. My guess is that it will sit on a shelf for at least a couple of years ahead. However I do want it ready to run so I will build the whole thing now.
What do people recommend from experience or from rumors? Or maybe I should wait for the new Mugen?
Also, what would be a seriously underpowered engine to use so that I can safely drive it around without slamming it to the first wall in the proximity?
And last but not least, where can I get a tire set that has the different width wheels? I mean the ones that are wider for the rear wheels and narrower in the front? Or is that for 1/8 scale only?
Bonus question: Can I install one of those wheel sets on my electric car or is the foam tire only used for nitro?
By the way, I am in London and I know nothing about the local r/c community but if someone can introduce me to nitro racing I will consider joining.
