I just wonder how that suspension geometry works on big jump tracks ... i dont have doubts about piktor rush2 performance on european high speed tracks, but on american style big jumps and bumpy tracks, i dont know ...

what you think guys ?

do you think it's the equivalent of the T-Tech Predator for 1/8th scale?

Youre right though, i do wonder about front downtravel issues....bud you would never have to wory about bending a front shock tower....lol

The way the shocks are reminds me of a Schumacher Cat EC. As for handling the large jumps i think that the front shock tower might need to go up 10 to 15mm higher. But i like the look of this. Anyone know who Piktor is? How much its gonna be? & when does it come out?

Yeah no doubt the shocks THAT low make it more stable on little bumps and ruts, but it just looks weird and doesnt look like it would handle large jumps as well. Im thinking it would just launch off them crazily and be a handful on the fall.

Tabushi you hit the nail on the head!!!!! IMO also the car is going to handle great in european tracks and will have some issues here in USA big jump tracks.I could be wrong. The car looks awesome though and I think it will handle like an onroad car. Hey Douggy!(Crim3Wav3) we should get one!!! LOL

Default Piktor Rush

Would it take outrageous spring rates to keep the tires on the ground? And how much total travel could be available?
How would you adjust brake bias fr to rr.? Does look cool tho!

I wonder if there is some kind of lever or something that actuates the shocks, because as it is there would be negliable shock travel over ther suspension range, and those definately arent some special super hard shocks. There must be something there you can't see in the quite dark pics.

yes there is a type of linkage on the shocks as you would find on the swingarm of a dirt bike. well except the KTM's. and on their site it shows travel up front of around 70mm. thats alot more than any other 1/8 on the market right now. anytime you can lower cg. and get everything in a more compact manner it will fly very nice. one thing it does say on their site is that it has almost no weight transfer front to rear or rear to front so it will be interesting to see how it would handle. you can bet spring rates will be in number so high you might get a nose bleed. but without that it wouldn't handle at all.this will be a car you will have to throw in the corners like a major league pitcher.

i am interested in it.
