MST TCR
 
Hello everybody,
Being known for their drift chassis, MST is planning to release a new car, with a modular but very simple architecture...

Honestly, I'm impatient to try it!

They also plan to release a Civic EG6

Might have to consider adding this to the fleet.

Interesting chassis concept. Looks like a direct drive like F1 cars.

Well, i'm excited about this car. This is "stupid simple". I hope this hits the market soon.

I wonder what the damping options will be, and what classes this might be legal in. Are struts considered independent suspension? Is this going to be light enough to be competitive in USGT?

Any hints on price?

i knew it! center placed battery is way batter to be used on a 2wd chassis than a 4wd one. (ta06 im talking to u)

It looks like this is going to be a really cheap chassis. Many of the parts seem to be identical left to right and front to back. With less parts it should be easy to assemble and to repair.
What worries me is the suspension with low ground clearance and no real dampers, that might limit outdoor use to real flat tracks. From the pictures on the MST website I can't tell, if it has a differential. Maybe this will be an option part.
The lower A-arms seem to be split, so track width an camber are adjustable. The upper links could be replaced with tie rods so track width, camber, caster, reactive caster and roll center would be adjustable as well. Like on any 1/12 scale.

In some ways it reminds me of the Robbe / Kyosho Sonic Sports from 1979. My thoughts on this: Two 380er brushless Motors with adapter flange, LowShorty, Foam Tires, Lola Body. :nod:

Top Deck?
 
I wonder If there is no need for an upper deck or some other way of stiffening the chassis. I can't imagine that it is strong enough, as there is nothing beteeen those front and rear cages which connect them.
Regards,
Michael

I suspect, much of this chassis usability comes from the deck flexing.

I want to see these things running.

It would be nice to get my hands on one of these. I wonder when the car will be released.
On the pictures it looks like the chassis plate is made of glasfibre to keep costs down. I can't see the typical structure of woven carbon.
I agree with Nerobro the soft chassis might help to improve drivability.
A long rod that is attached to the two central holes in the X shaped crossmember would be a simple thing to try out.
Or two shorter rods on the left and right side, where the crossmembers are fitted to the chassis plate. But the space for the ballends could be limited.
Preventing the chassis from bending but keeping the torsional flex might improve the handling on high grip carpet.

first I want to see real pictures of the 3 different way to set it up. I definitely interested. Hopefully wonít have to wait to long to get a release date.

Stiffness is easy to achieve... use long setscrews for the upper ball joints. Bolt a plate across the ball joints. some 2mm fiberglass would turn the thing into a crazy rigid bridge. ... I assure you, it will be tried.

So... we build them the same. 21.5? 25.5? 13.5? *giggles* :-) as soon as this thing is released, I am buying one.

Iím game, have to see price with shipping. Iíd expect it will be even longer before itís available here. Iím leaning towards RWD, 21.5 worked ok in the Yokomo. Now FWD, 13.5 could be fun. Iím curious as to how simple the switch from FWD to RWD would be.
