yeah,

upon inspection, i don't like the reversed motor. it will assist the car in squating when on power, and diving when off. the standard orientation helps keep the car from pitching durring accelleration or decelleration. suspension geometry can account for this, but it just seems an unusual platform to start with.

additionally, it keeps the motor near the rear diff. i like the way tamiya and schumacher are headed with the motor substantially nearer the middle of the car.

thank you for asking.

i had a type t, and now i have the si version. it is well constructed, and is a stong car. the u block for the rear can be used in the front, but it will toe the arm 1* in or out, depending the orientation. in fact, that is what i would like to do as well. i have not put it on the track yet, but i do intend to use high roll center front and rear if/when i do.

i will tell you that the l/r weight balance is way off. despite the fact that atlas moved the motor out, they reversed the belts, so that the battery is moved out as much or more! i was discusted when i became aware of this.

Cool.. I'll order a couple of U3 blocks.

Is it possible to swap the belt pulleys and diffs around then demel the chassis to move the batts??? I realise the one-ways could be a prob tho but i'm sure there is another compatable oneway out there that could be used to alliviate that prob.

Has anyone moved the front upper arm mount from the c-hub to the king pin??? can it be done or do the wheels hit it?

As for integy being expensive... I live in Australia. Buying from anywhere else in the world is 1/2 the price usually. An atlas ym34si costs around $680AUD which is approx $530USD. Even integy is cheap next to that.

Default weight

My YM24 type T weighs 1475g (the lower weight limit is 1500g) so I have to add 35 grammes. Not sure what that is in lbs

i've already scoured the car in an effort to find a balanced layout. that was my first thought, but there are some problems with it. shoot me a pm, and i'll give you all the details. it'll be cool if this thread picks up again.

Is this still a competitive car or is integy making a new car? Can you compare it to some top cars of today. I dont want to buy it if in like 3 months integy comes out with a new car. Also is it durable.

Default ym34 type T

I've been using the type T for a few years on a very hard indoor carpet track with brick walls when you run off. I don't recall breaking anything other than maybe a diff outdrive once.

yeah, the car is a top level car. their new stuff, which i posted the pics of, doesn't look a ton better. imho. the weight balance will still be way off, and now the motor is reversed. i don't believe that the si will become extinct anytime soon.
oh, and it's beefy as h*ll. i say do it. it's a nice car, just a bit heavy on the battery side. but so is any car with a pack down the side.
