You know what would really be cool if you could design a Pivot Ball suspention that could react as fast a C-Hub. What you could to is try using a smaller pivot ball inside a teflon coated hub carrier. THis would possible smoothin out the roll inside of the cup and inter fast response out of the pivot ball.

PS. This probably wont work but I really like the ease of adjusting pivot ball suspention over C-Hub.

and these are all world champion cars. go figure shafts must be that good! comments without insults are appreciated! dude!
Please reread what we both have written, I called you OBNOXIOUS, which is an the since I used it is an ADJECTIVE, not a NOUN, so the name I called you in the sentance was "my freind"..... Now I saw 2-3 of my posts that after very short duration you replied with a smart comment. and the last was you saying, those all look like they have high C of G... You where not reading what I was writing you where just disagreeing because for some reason in your mind the only cars you think should be shaft driven.....

Now as to my responces to the others ideas, I read thru their posts, throught out what it would take to complete the design, thought of it's strong points and also flaws.... however they both have too many flaws just at the idea stage!! I just pointed them out... however I did compliment them on actually triing to come up with something different...unlike many that just wanna rebuild the TC3.... Also when they posted their ideas it was justa "look this would be cool" ... they made no other statement as to how to actually make it work.... If you reread my post you would see that I actually looked at things like clearances and such....

Now if you would please reread my post as to the chassis design and have an open mind and actually think out how it would be... then post your comments I will defend my plan...unlike anyone else has done for their OWN ideas.....

Anyways.. if we used a TC3 drive train, we should not use any existing diff housings. Just make them out of aluminium or whatever. It should be an open design.

As for IMPACTS idea... I think it's pretty cool. But I'd rather have more weight forward or centralized that rearward like the RCLab. Just take the 414M2 and toss on the XXX-S drive system. I think weight will be better distributed this way.

How about this, build a car for Stock Class. Direct Drive like the Assassin (sp?).... but the Motor is in the front of the car!! Batterys can be centralized or saddled up. Weight can easily be made 50/50.

The reason the motor is forward and the batteries aft is due to the design of the belt drive, to centralize the motor and use saddle packs you would need to raise the motor 4mm thus raising a major weight component....

i think the tc3 open diff housing is the best with the tc3 suspenction and have a upper deck and a nice light stiff chassie i will try to draw a picture and put it on here to see what it would look like.

Alright guys first quite fighting, this is forum is for "design disscussions" not "bickering"

Anyway i have come to the decision that i am going to run the TC3 Drive train, with the batts running along one side or side x side..

i'll join in on this, if no one minds
tc3 driveline sounds good to me! will it use tc3 gear boxes? and diffs?
how about using TRF suspension? it works well and is pretty strong. and also maybe TC3 steering.
maybe we could even use the R2 suspension so we could try different span arms?
just a few thoughts i have anyway.

Default Hello again...

Your on the same thinking pattern as i am there GT.

I like the new NTC3 steering, and i like how the R2 suspension arm wraps around the bulkheads...

You know what kills me... Everytime a new car comes out, especially shaft drive you have everyong jumping up and down on how it looks like a TC3, come on... I'm an AE fan but there's only 1 way to set up a shaft drive car, the shaft runs down the center... No other way to do it... So... AE should make the only shaft drive car and everyone should haphazzardly arrange their belt drives...

How about the best of both worlds... Shaft drive the diffs with a belt drive from the motor to the center shaft??? Grnated you'd have to come up with am assortment of belt pinions... But it's be different...

I'm just reposting my idea's because it just got shot down, but i think it would make a great car. i also forgot 2 mention, tamiya shox.

Well I don't like the idea of TC3 suspension because then it's just a TC3 conversion kit. Plus I'd rather see something different like 414M2 suspension or Yokomo. Barracuda suspension would be nice. It's very durable. But not quite as easy to tune as some of the others. Plus there's only one place in the US to get it.

Steering rack... It'd rather use Yokomo. Has a servo saver built in so all you need is a tall servo horn on the servo. Not a servo saver like on a Tamiya or Losi where you can have centering issues. Nitro steering rack is nice and all. But depending out it's mounted, there could be some funky angles in the linkages.
