Exclamation Design you dreamcar and get a sponsorship

We are a new company starting as a competitor in the R/C Car business. We are not another company which is planning to develop and support 10-15 different cars in all sizes and classes. We will focus all our energy and resources to develop and support a 1:10 scale high-quality touringcar.

Normally when companies such as Associated, Tamiya, Corally, Yokomo, X-Ray and similar design a new R/C car. They do this by asking a handfull of factory drivers what they want, and they then begin to design from that. We don't belive that a handfull of factory drivers properly represents what R/C racers want.

Therefor we are taking another aproach to the design of a new competitive 1:10 scale touringcar.
Ofcourse we will be working with a bunch of pro drivers to develop the car.
But to design a really competitive car which meets the requirement of thousands of R/C racers we need more than just a bunch of fantastick drivers, designers and engineers. We need you!

What we ask of you is to tell us exactly what your dream touringcar would be like. That means that we would like to hear if you prefere one material over another, if you want belt or shaft drive, should the differential be in an enclosure or out in the free, should shocks be threaded or not, do you want batteries on one side, in the middle or the option to have them on any side or your choice, do you want flat or bathtub chassis, do you want to adjust toe-in by blocks or by turnbuckles, what price you would be willing to pay etc. We are interested in ALL you requirements and wishes.

The car will be developed from a base requirement that we won't create a new car every 6 months like some companies, bu instead we will create a high-quality competitive car which through continously improvements will be competitive for a long time.

In return we will ask the three most helpfull persons to participate in the continued development, and provide a full 12 month sponsorship.
If you are selected to participate in the development you will recieve one of the first prototypes of the car to train with and participate in races(If you wish). You will then continue to recieve updated parts for the car to test for the whole development period and in return provide feedback to us.
The sponsorship will include a special limited version of the final car showing that you participated in the development(Only a handfull or so of theese cars will ever be made). You will also recieve any sparepart needed for a 12 month period. When the 12 month period is over(12 months after the development period has ended) you get to keep the car and all parts received.

To participate you should send all you wished and requirements by email to the following address:

[email protected]

All emails should be clearly marked with your full name and an emailaddress where we can contact you if you are among the three selected. You can send more than one email, just remember your name and emailaddress.

There is a UK on-line magazine rcracenews.co.uk that conducted a survey to find out what people wanted in a 'dream' RC car. The results were basically no-one wanted the same.

Every one wants fast, durable, good handlng etc. but the details were so varied that they establised one persons dream car was totally different to anothers.

Xray followed a similar train of thought with the T1 and without a doubt it's a great car but not everyones first choice or they would all be driving Xrays.

I'm not wanting to put a damper on your idea, it's great that you are commited to desiging a top notch tourer I'll watch your progress with great interest.

Anway, here's a few things I would like to see:

Ease of maintainence, eg diff access and bearings well protected in hubs etc. so they dont need cleaning weekly.

nice materials - cant beat Ti, carbon and alloy, keep you composites!

well balanced chassis.

durability - without effect on performance

I think JohnA's got it right... I wish you good luck!

When the flag drops, the BS stops.

The train stops at the train station. The bus stops at the bus station. In my office I have a workstation.
