Default Russian TC almost complete!

Hi guys, I know there was talk about a new Russian 1/10th electric TC on here a while back, well, just to let you know that the car's designer has sent me an email with a link to the companies website:

http://www.awesomatix.com


The website is not fully complete but does have some nice CAD pictures which answer some questions that some guys has regarding certain design features of this new car.

Anyway, if this info has already been posted on here, sorry about that, but just in case it has n't, take a look!

Cheers all,

Chris.

Ya know I posted a basic drawing of a TC a couple years ago that I conjured up that had a drive train design like this one. I'm not a mechanical engineer so I didn't have any idea if it would work. I'm very interested in seeing how efficient it is...btw most of the pics don't show up on the site. If it does work well I hope to see one in person. :

Also what is very interesting about this layout is that the servo is on the same side as the battery which will make it very easy to mount electronics on the motor side. And with lipo it should make balancing easier....

Reminds me of a Tech racing Voggerd GT. Anyone remember those? Had those ball mounts similar to this car where hing pins would normally go

Reminds me of the Xray M18 pro a little.

Good question, It looks like it maybe some kinda sway bar suspension. But what would you use for dampening. Maybe use something like 1/12 damper tubes. Just a thought.

The link for damping is not working on the site. They might use different thickness of the lower arm (Kind of like a T-bar in a pan car) and maybe a grummet as well to dampen things out.

It looks like the lower arms are on pivots so it will have to have a spring and shock of some sort. I would say they have just been omitted from the drawing for clarity.

There seems to be quite a few new ideas on this chassis. It will be good to see one 'in the flesh', as it were. The suspension design is something that has been some what of a talking point for this car. I think the designer has purposly not put final pics on there so that other designers do not steal his design! We'll see I guess. It has done well already though, If I remember correctly, it has won at least one round of the Russian National series and maybe a couple of other 'big race' wins elsewhere.

it says in the chassis description on the main page of the website that the shocks are mounted on the lower plate of the chassis, and that the damping/rebound action is adjustable with out emoving them. it also said they would come filled from the factory and not require further refilling ?
also said that it would probably cost 100 to 200 more than a top end chassis already available.
pretty to look at....and some nice new thinking...but not marketable i would think
