Nice work Bob, very well thought out. I really like the minimalistic rear pod design, looks nice and light.

Those things are so light it's amazing. I think the rear tires outweigh the pinion by a factor of 20:1, and that weight is 3 times further out. But to play Devils advocate, the pinion has to spin 2-5 times faster than the wheel. And when you think about the weight of the rotor, the pinions the small part of the equation. that said, I'm not in any hurry to ever run a steel pinion...

The reason it has the hole is so you can get to the Serpent tweak bridge screws through the bottom of the car. Also, I widened the hole to the point that the bar has a cross section more similar to a thinner T-bar. But it still centers up nice. It's a shade softer in all directions than the Serpent 2mm. I like the way it feels.

Can be used with the Stock Serpent pod.
BUT, you'd need to use our rear chassis brace so it clears the pivot socket. We rotated the rear pivot socket 90 degrees to put more meat on the back of the T-bar to make it stronger in the heat of battle.

If you pick up our t-bar conversion you can use all the stock parts.

There is all kinds of rumor and speculation about what is going to happen for the 2009-2010 season. I think it's going to be interesting to say the least.

...lol... The design has been in my mind for a while. Got it knocked out this winter. I'm trying to work with some industry people who's work I like, rather than scrounge any old shop with a low price. It's hard though, it adds to the price.

I'd like to see a conversion in the $150-$180 range, But with the same quality work that shows on that pod in the pictures. Problem is that this is some SERIOUSLY low production, obscure, stuff. You don't get much of a break when you ask if they can make 12 of something... ...lol..

Thought I'd post a picture of Bob and the Stormer Cobra on the podium after his 3rd place in 1/12 SuperStock at the Magic City Carpet Classic this past weekend. Not too bad at all for a car that had turned it's very first wheel on the track about 16 hours earlier!!



Yours Truly qualified 3rd (best of the rest class) but "pookied" my tires WAY too early and suffered the consequences. Teach me to not go look at the heat sheets a second time...

Why not try the Dynotech spur to pinion converter...when 1:1 isn't enough

Any chance the rear pod could be made to work with an L4 chassis?

That car was a beast. I "pookied" Scottrik's tires making him run hard in the first few minutes.

Speaking of which, you guys going to post the results anywhere? I'd like to see the main results for SS sometime.

Mains results are posted (as are the heats) on the club site.

"Pookied" I was referring to applying compound...did it WAY too early. Tires started out heinous and got progressively worse. My best lap in the main was a second slower than my best in qualifying heats. That bad.

"maybe". It's starts with the knowledge that the T-bar pivot ball spacing is the same, so that's good. Have to worry about what hits what after that. Without measuring, my gut says it's possible.

And you know we'd expect nothing less. Or more. Awesome job either way.
