Sorry mate, but that's not true! My dragster is 100% homebuilt. Take a look. The only things that aren't built from scratch are the wheels, electrics and gears which are nearly impossible to build. My chassis is built from scratch, my motor mounts, my axles everything. Theres a difference between a modified chassis and a homemade chassis.

P.S I still like your car!

The quality of the pics aren't the best, sorry guys.

What do you think guys? Did I do a good job?

If nobody has realised, the wheels are offroad!

Also you might think that the electrics are cheap. Thats because they are.

The esc is a cheap $30, the motor is a stock $10. So yeh. But, I will be putting better electrics, this was just to make sure the car works before I go any further.

There are more pics coming.
Hey, That looks good it's different too. The off road tires give the car that mud bogger look I like the set up but what are you going to do for steering??? Or is it going to stay that way. I have a GMS dragster front axle I am not using with wheels and bearings. If you are interested make me an offer. It's the same front end you see at grandmotorsports electric dragster. But the car you made looks killer. I like it, it looks great. With those wheels you can sand drag race or mud drag race. I still want to know how it runs once you complete it. Take Care...

I like the set up. What happened to it? How was the handling on the car? Do you still run it? For sure it is different and I am glad that you guys are posting up your creations on this thread. It is nice to see everyones ideas and passions come to life. Guy's keep up the great work and if anyone has any more pics. Please post them up. Everyones creations look great and unique. Keep it up guy's...

OK...So yours is 100% homebuilt. Good on you. So was mine....everything done on the car was done at home so therefore it is homebuilt too.

Fair enough the chassis is from a buggy but so are your wheels

Anyway I thought I might post the link because this is what the thread starter asked for. Homebuilts/moddedcars etc. Good luck with future projects and if you ever need a hand I am right here on the Gold Coast as well.

Hey there, hows it going? Just to let you know I wasn't trying to be mean or anything, I was just letting you know that mine is homemade. Also yes the thread starter who is "ME" said homemade, mods etc. Thats what I wanted people to put on this thread, and yes you did an excellent job making that car, especially that you pointed out the chassis is from a buggy.

By the way where in the gold coast are you? I'm not far from broadbeach, where Trackside RC is. You know that hobby shop? Also do you race at the Gilston track?

Good talking to you, Paul

For the steering, well, for now I'm going to leave it that way but if I need it I'll put it on. In my first design it had steering, so about the front axle you have I wouldn't need it. Sorry. Also the reason why I haven't used it yet is the gears are not 100% lined up and I don't want to run it incase I grind them. I have made a few adjustments and they should be ok to run.

Also, if i made it belt drive such as a belt going from the axle to the motor do you reckon that would work?

Paul
