  • Congratulations Oleg for getting the product to market.
    Its an amazing bit of kit, looking forward to seeing one in person, if only i were still single, there would be 2 in the post.
  • I see a picture of one at IIC, anyone know who is there with it? would be interesting to see how they do.

    I think the price is justified, try and design and build it yourself, you'll spend 10x.
  • @Mike
    is it possible to post that picture link here????
    cheers
  • check the IiC topic there is a link for pictures and some pics of A700 and belt drive model of the A700 !!!!
    seems like its so easy to turn this car to belt drive!

  • Final car looks great with the dark anodizing!

    Belt drive in the backround is a 3 year old Prototype.

  • Oleg: Which of the 3 is better (Bushing R, Bushing S or C drive)?
  • What happened to the transverse motor (like the belt drive cars) with shaft drive that I saw on a lot of CAD pictures etc?

    Skiddins
  • It still comes in the Kit, so you can choose between the 2.
  • Oleg Babich,

    I just went through the assembly manual and there's only one word in my mind: awesome!

    Excelent piece of engineering. It's this kind of innovation that has kept me in this hobby for almost 30 years now.

    Congratulations and I only hope your company strives just like Durango did!

    Regards from Portugal,

    Durango isn't striving, there barely afloat.
  • What I especially like about this car is the suspension, if you take out the dampers and spring thing then. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for the big manufacturers and they put some proper race car suspensions on their cars. The current suspension systems is almost unchanged since 2004, and so underdeveloped.
  • Quote: Oleg: Which of the 3 is better (Bushing R, Bushing S or C drive)?
    Bushing R and bushing S generate different friction under operation.

    S-type makes suspension a little bit stiffer.

    Our low friction plastic C-drives save outdrives but are not so durable itself.
    I can recomend it for stock motors.
  • what's your favourite layout
    Like the earlier post, I see that most of the layouts that Ivan used now seem to use the longitudinal layout.

    What layout do you prefer Oleg, or is it a case of use stock with longitudinal, and transverse for modified.

    What about the torque created by the shaft - have you overcome that diseways pull?
  • I can see that this is my friend Steen Graversen's cars, so the belt car is not a 3 year old prototype, Steen transformed the shaftdrive car to belt by him selve.
