Mine is gunna consist of many random parts from an assortment of cars... mostly from a Losi LXT I had...

It's gunna have:
Associated Stealth Transmission
Losi LXT Front Arms
Aluminum Front Shock Tower
maybe a XXXT Steering or RC10GT system
RC10T4 Rear End (maybe, whatever I match to the Losi lxt front arm width)
Well, one of my friends is currently building a CNC, and i have a design and some alum for them already, so they are in the works. Should have them by end of june, start of july, depending when he gets the CNC built.

You make some nice parts, is that a bulkhead and hingepin brace? Yea, i also had a bit of help from my dad (im only 14) he helped me bend that motor guard, and he did some sanding. Just had it out for another run, and its running like a well oiled machine. Wait, it IS a well oiled maching. . .hehehe

Well, if you have time, and know lots of digital circutry, this guy did a design for a peak charger in about an hour, you can build one for about $500, $300 if you have some sheet metal and toobing sitting around. for the 300, you get a kit with 3 stepper motors, the stuff to make a stepper bored, the rails, bearings, a bit. For the cutter, you jsut modify a dremel with better bearing to make it more stable. And you jsut trhough a pentium 1 computer together with autocad

I'll be at the '07 worlds too

Two main faults I see with this chassis

1) Increased weight
2) Higher CG

Creative, yet not effective

Gotta get that battery on the lower deck atleast

The batt sits really low, and it doest weigh more then 1 lbs more then it did, no proformance issues. also, it is indestructable, so yea, dont bash my project. If i really want to race, ill just pull out the old RC10 GT. Besides, im not in it for anything but fun. Also, ive , in the process, designed a almost whole new car, which is pretty cool, considering im 14. . .
