I actually prefer the IFS. You can't run the newer offset arms flipped forward for better weight distribution if it had a regular shock mount.

First shake down with my GORILLA.
Just a ton of fun to be out at the track with it.

From the looks of it, it will fit the Tamiya FF-03/04, Destiny RX, VBC F12/F17, Sakura FF EVO/EX and Xpress FT1. Can't say for the MTS FF V2/V3 because the shock towers on both look high.

It's 3D printed in versatile plastic from Shapeways. It has a bespoke carbon brace to my design by Fibrelyte, and motor mount made for me by Cobra Racing Products.

Seeing how close is counter gear to differential, would it be possible to design 2 gear transmission? Rotational direction would remain same, but it'd remove some weight and friction.

After i got this i did look into a 2 gear but i think it's too tight. Even this one is marginal on spur clearance (max 64t 48dp spur) and lowest gearing is 4.5 so it's a bit limited.
