That looks sick, too bad the top plate screws aren't countersunk. Thats the only comment I have to make.

My first upper deck is countersunk. But the chassis is way too stiff therefore I use plastic washer and buttomhead screw. This setup allowed a little bit chassis flex. By the way, this setup is still stiffer than any touring car out there.

Yes, designing was the most time consuming process,
making the parts is way easier than that.
The gear box for shaft drive car is kind of hard to do it right because it is three dimension alignment, belt drive took only one third of time to design.

Well guys got all the plans ready to take to the shop! Cant wait to see the demo run on the first layout using lexan sheet.
I have all the pictures of the car in CAD form but for some reason i cant load them onto the fourm cause its too large in size.

Well wish Bob and myself good luck on the manufacturing, we will keep you posted on how are progression is coming along, and we will take some pictures of the first chassis.

Ps we need a name for the car... Any suggestions?



Thanks!
Edward Pickering

Nice work rcpinky!

You seem to have taken the strengths of several different cars and combined them into your hybrid model. I've always wanted to know what would happen if someone was to do this. Hope it works out.

Shame the big manufacturers won't do this or are ashamed to do so. Goes to show how reliant they are on selling spares and hop-ups.

Thank you itchyhand.
Atsushi Hara ran something like this at 2002 Reedy race in TAMIYA HQ. Hpi used tc3 suspension and drive train, his car was very fast (fastest may be) but only if the drive train could take the abuse.
I design this car for Reedy race in Tamiya track with very good result, hope I can go to the race this year.
If the interest of the this type of car are high, I can put it into production (conversion kit for Tamiya or Tc3).
