We work at that this car became the winner on any surface with rubber and foam tires.
We use a rigid 3mm lower deck now.
Our goal is adjusting of the overall frame rigidity in the desired range due manipulation with upper deck only.

Just so I understand what you wrote (I am not trying to be funny), you guys are working on making the main chassis plate flexible based on what top deck is used? If that is the case, why not use a more adaptable chassis that is 2.5 mm or even 2.0 mm?

Also, I understand you guys want to develop a car to work on every surface, does that mean you will also have several chassis and part options to help accomplish this goal? Seperate cars for seperate surfaces (like Xray)?

Getting better every time I see it. Do you guys have some pics of the prototypes?

Our 3mm lower deck based frame is capable to be so flexible as the traditional 2mm lower deck based frame.
By settings of the top deck only we can make the frame of our car so rigid as a normal 3-3.5mm chassis.
One car and one universal lower deck but different top decks for separate surfaces and tires.
Our car should not be 'optimized' everywhere.
It simply should overtake existing cars on any surface.

From an engineering point of view, (because it does not have typical oil filled dampers), I think it would be very interesting to see how differently this car performs with different chassis thickness on different surfaces...

Wow. We finally have the F1 of TC. Awesome work of art. Some one should start a R/C vehicle hall of fame section as there are great vehicles out there and this one should be in there as well.

I don't like the diff. no dust protection.
Also i hope they will give it a color and black gearing.
but i'm interested to drive one. Will not buy it but want to try it first.

Plastic covers moulds are not finished by this time still.
But they will be in a kit certainly.

Oleg,

Awesome car. I might look into one when the time comes to try and set a speed record for 2S lipos. I have a 200A sensored/sensorless esc along with a 1.5T (18,102Kv) motor that is in a TC3, but the TC3 has a limit on the gearing. You design could allow me to use a lot of gearing options, plus I like shaft drive cars for speed runs.

Not only is the drivetrain and suspension design innovative...but so it the motor mount. Nice work!

OK. I think our optional ball bearing shaft support and optional fine pitch steel diff bevel gears will help you also.

Around when do you expect the car to be released?
