You can't win by playing follow the leader

Brant - I don't have a problem with his pictures or anything...but that same post was put in several threads on another bulletin board I read, and I don't want to see it more than once in this one.

the looks well balanced and inovative, but the front drive shaft seems to be too much of a angle maybe I 'm wrong? (durability and power loss)
Awsome car anyway

With the right materials wear shouldn't be too much of an issue. Suspension arms reach a much bigger angle and driveshafts don't bind too badly, I don't think it will be too bad.

On some/most cars with the "standard" triangular shaped upper arm it will be free until a certain point in the suspension's throw and then continually bind worse and worse beyond that point if the upper arm angle does not match the kick-up angle. Being how you cannot change upper arm angle that much on all/most cars it still binds up but you can greatly improve upon this problem with some elbow grease. The next thing is the "give" on rough tracks...the turnbuckle style that TL went with should be better on rougher tracks than the std triangular upper arm as the energy received to the chassis from a bumpe isn't dilited as much with the stiffer "standard" triangular upper arm where the turnbuckle will dillute the bump energy by letting the parts flex/twist etc.... making the car track more straight through bumps.

You do some of the most shameless scavenging of other forums, I've ever seen. Do these other forums come to your site and try to scavenge your readers?

Good grief.

If you also look, the lower arms connect closer to mid way up the hub, this will reduce the chances of the caster changing from rough surfaces, which makes using an upper A-arm style link not necessary.

That's probably got every other 1/8 car maker scratching their heads wondering, "why didn't we think of that?". Simple solution for reaching a profound goal (moving the engine over that far).

The front end (arms and front hub design) is kind of a page taken straight from the XX-4, which is regarded as one of the best rough-track cars in its class. I think the hub and arm design will work just fine.

On paper, this car should make all the others look silly...I hope it's competitive!
