Default New Team Magic E4

Team Magic's E4 electric touring car press release is nothing if not creatively brilliant. Everyone in the industry is talking about this car and its press release today. Why? Check it out!

On another note, the E4's design looks exciting and refreshingly different. Triple belt design, centralized 6-cell battery location, and a low CG design makes the E4 appear extremely unique. We'll get one into Collin's hands for a full track test as soon as possible.


Here is their press release in full...

Official Team Magic Press Release:
On the basis of the surviving will, people of thousands years ago learn how to enjoy a roast roar with fire. And from the experience in history, we modern citizen have pork knuckle for dinner faster and more delicious with the microwave oven.

Through these years, Team Magic desires to show you the brand new model concept car of E4, the monster in the fluffy clouds. Although the exterior of the monster looks delicate without energy, but itíŽs actually with flame inside of the blood. For the purpose to overthrow the traditional model racing concept, Team Magic first try on the under slung design for centralizing the motor and the batteries to balance whole the body. Also, totally different from the old concept for transmission belt, Team Magic fearlessly adopt 3 transmission belts with fine dimension dents to chase higher efficiency. When we animate the monster, it will just fly quite faster in the fluffy clouds like wind lightly without gravity. With more you drivers participation, E4 will release with more powerful surprises.

its a gas car and its been tried before,and it did not work good, do you really think the drive will make the car go fast. may handle but be slow.

If they optimize the drivetrain it will not be an factor according to me . A proper designed 3 belt transmission will only be marginally less efficient and besides transmission effieciency is not as important as many believe as long as we are not talking about a Losi SW.

On the photos it is a GP transmission but as they have said it's only for testing the concept
