I think that in addition they should move the pivot block forward enough that there is enough clearance for the belt. Then there would be room for wheelbase adjustment anyways using shims. Just some thoughs

Also, is it just me, or is the spur gear mounted somewhat higher up than most of the current touring cars?
I have posted and told people a New spur/motor mount is in the works!
as for the blocks yes again look at the pictures Thanks guy's for pointing that out as for anything else you might see might not be in the production Design!

I might as well tell you now the lower chassis and upper Chassis will not be the Productin Chassis! and it may come with a extra upper Chassis plate and maybe a lower after our Factory drivers test the car out and shock mounting might be changed as well we may need to give you a thicker lower chassis but time and testing will tell.

So at this time I will ask you Please give me a little time to work on this yes we did not have a problem till we adjusted the pivot block moving it up with the spacers it hit the belt just a little and at that time I knew I would need to change it.

Thank you.

I was only offering constructive criticism, I do realize that these photos are prototype only.

XrayFK Sorry I have got like 20 emails and even 4 phone calls on that same thing.

I did not want to sound like that ok just came off wrong

Best Regards!

Here is a look at what we might do with the Chassis ok and if not then there maybe 2 cars we come out with But I feel this Picture will show it best.

Now we also have one where we move the motor mount forward to come up with the same thing. and as i said I am working on a new motor mount to better allow us to do this all on one Chassis!

Not a problem at all Marty, your upcoming car looks very promising, I am considering picking one up for racing carpet this fall.
Best of luck to you.

Here is a better look at it in this picture of the motor mount turned 180 Deg and now you have a saddle pack setup plus we have one where on the first Chassis setup you just move the mount forward not flipping it 180 Deg and the motor is in the middle of the Chassis and you have 3X3 cells as well!

Ok I was going to keep this to myself and my driver and to the people that did pre-booked orders Till July 4 weekend but here it is~

What I want to do is sell one car that you could change into all 3 setup and not 3 cars This I think will be a big selling point! But this is going to be the Chassis I make for my car and my factory drivers as they test this over the next 30 days this way we will find what works better with what!

So I will be able to say this setup is better for carpet and this setup is better for high traction asphalt and this is better for low traction asphalt and so on ok

So we will see what testing comes up with and let you know!
Let me know what you think! All of this with one Car! at one price!
Thinking outside of the Box! with a new innovative design!

No I am working sorry I put in about 20hr day at this and I do it 7days a week. I have to many F1 orders and things going on here plus getting my Factory Drive the stuff he is going to need for testing the car over the next 30 days if you want give me a call on my cell when your at the track!

I will make a date to get to some of the local tracks to let people test it and answer all the Question they may have and to show just how east it is to change this cars setup around.

Here is a picture of the room on the Chassis and just so you know it is the same wheel base that will mount all HPI 190mm Bodys I had a Question about this so I will just post it ok.

Thank you.

Next Question:

All 3 motor setups use the same parts as in diffs belts and so on we will give you an extra set of top plates for the Mid motor Mount (best setup for carpet) and the Lower Chassis will have all the slots and holes for it all.

Plus you get all the hard ware as well.

A race car right out of the box no hopups you get it all!!!

If you don't mind listing them out, exactly which parts are from which company? The suspension arms are HPI for example. Thanks.
