Awesome work and ideas here .

I know the car is still a prototype , thus this pic of the chassis is showing a diff chassis than your F206F1 which you mentioned the car will be based upon.
Just wanted to confirm that the chassis will be able to run a 6cell side by side pack instead of the saddle pack pictured , just like the F206F1.

Cheers and all the best with your awesome work

Sorry all of my email notices are off I think.

It is a Full Suspension car and will work like our F206F1 But Run in the pan car class and with rubber or pan car tires. and it is 1/10 scale and we are looking at a new D-Drive setup and a belt drive set up I think our D-Drive will be the best and the one we go with. it is not like your standard D-Drive but more like a slot car but in 1/10th scale.

If it is anything like what marty has designed for his f1 and touring cars it should be a beaut!!

Cheers
Correct It is just like that But we are looking at maybe a New D-Drive set up if I can get the spurs and pinions made if not then it will be a belt drive. But I am pushing for the D Drive with the motor right in the back and down the center line of the Chassis.

Thanks nagatahawk and I would like you to test our car Prototype when it is done!

Yes it will be setup for side by side just like our touring car it will have the same battery layout so one can run both ok.

Not taking orders just yet ok.

I need to work out the drive setup ok. then we will move on to the orders ok.
I do have 3 pre-orders right now but I will let them pick what drive they want.

I would say the cars is about 30 to 60 days from being done! it will all come down to getting gears and pinions made for us!

Ok , thanks.

I'm loving the design and concept of the GTP design also.

Marty, I was just looking at the thumbnail pic of the proposed GTP chassis, and yes it is like a slot car with the motor mounted inline and mated to either side-cut or a bevel-cut spur gear!
It made me think that it would be the perfect set-up for the Lotus 49 you have been planning. Mount the motor inline with the battery down the chassis centerline. Perhaps with a monocouce(probably did'nt spell that right) chassis like the real car. Maybe take it a step further and design a motor mount that bolts directly to the back of the monocouce and thus make the motor a stressed member just like the original 49; or at least the motor mount would be a stressed member that the rear suspension would bolt to. It would be so awesome don't you think?

I seriously can't wait to see this. I have been procastinating a comeback to r/c. I want something simple to play with to keep costs down and i was looking @ DD touring cars wif a full suspension setup and such without the complex of the usual touring cars. Man this just blown my socks off again and again. And all over again.

Well that was the plan and has been for years I like that you picked up on that!

You and me both buddy I can not wait to finish this and the cantievered shocks front and rear independant cantilevered suspension LMP Car both will run this Chassis or This Chassis with a belt drive if I can not find a way to get the D-Drive gears.

$ 170.00 to 200.00 Maybe less If I get the D-Drive setup and gears made but if it is a belt car then I would say this would be around the price.

About twenty years ago, I saw the same design in a twelfth scale car. There were problems with the durability of the gears. Because the forces between the pinion and bevel spur or crown gear. THe car was fast, but a touch to the rear wheels would tear the gears up. Because the shaft of the armature is not parallel to the rear axle, the motor must move along the armature shaft to accomidate a larger spur/crown gear and parallel to the axle to accomidate a larger pinion.

As for the Lotus 49 project, to make it tenth scale, you might consider 2/3 C cells or Li-Pos.

I did hear of this car as well from others.



Well this is what I wanted at first and still might make it I called it a power transffer unit The Drawing got damaged in the Flood and this is the best I could do to clean it up ok. But it will give you an Idea ok.

As for the gear for the pinion and spur it would be more like the Ring and pinion for a shaft drive touring car 32 dp or 48 dp and still could work.

As for the belt this is proven in our F206F1 so I know it will work.
