How thick is the chassis.

I see a lot of flex in the middle of the chassis.

4mm?!? lol

Mentioned on here...I'm glad people are coming up with new shit.

looks goos i mean good.

The real question is has the car been run? Losi did go to a slightly longer arm if I am correct, but this looks to be even shorter than the original JRXS. I had one of those cars, and i felt that the setup window was very small due to the arm length. Just made it easy to dial yourself out. The JRXS R does seem to be quite dialed though...

i'm just glad to see somebody thinking outside the box.. that said.. any lowering of the cg was negated by all that aluminum higher than the shocks added to cantilever the suspension... i'm still waiting for someone to use upper decks perpendicular to the primary chassis for stiffness.. parallel plates are in sheer to eachother and don't properly regulate the torsion of the chassis..

Here is interesting information. This car is designed, developed, and manufactured HERE IN THE USA. The company is located in Richmond, NH.

I am looking at a magazine article now for this car. It is in the June 2009 issue of RC Car Action, in the very back of the magazine, before the Proline advertisement.

If this car is indeed designed, developed, and manufactured in the USA, I may have to support the home team. I mean CRC has built a VERY nice 10th scale pan car in my opinion. I am pretty sure this new kid on the block has done the same with this car.

waiting? you missed the boat by about 10 years! Kawada SV-10 Alcyon had the VOLT (vertical something something something) - it's like driving an I-Beam on wheels around the track...

if it's like an I beam, then you misunderstood my post.. I beams combine both parallel plates and a vertical plate handling both lateral rigidity and torsion.. but if there is just a bottom plate and a single vertical plate it would allow the materials to twist but in a controlled manner.. unlike our douple plate cars which are always in sheer and trying to tweak.. this is a conversation for another thread however..

I believe it goes back even further. Didn't the AYK Radiant line of 4 wheel buggies have vertical plate chassis?

As I remember yes they did. What I cant remember is if the AYK had a plate in it anywhere that was perpendicular to the vertical plates. If there is no perpendicular plate then it probably will tweak as well.

George has one. We should have a look at it.

The pro radiant had a saddle pack lower plate, or at least it was an option.

I hated those things. Now I cant remember if I really thought they were terrible or if I was just that much of a Turbo Optima fan.

Hey, hows it hangin', interested in the car if for no other reason than it is different (and know of others that also are interested). If I see one more same 'ole, same 'ole touring car I might pull my eyeballs out you know.

I think I speak for everyone in saying there is a bazillion questions. How are the short arms, wide diffs working out on asphalt? Super curious about the thick carbon over styrene chassis (and the lack of top deck needed), wish I didn't live so far away and could see one of the cars in person.

Have you done any races (or got it in the hands of someone to race), how is it stacking up against more traditional touring cars (especially with the lay down suspension)? Any video of one running available yet?

Will come up with more later if I am not beat to it by others.

Thanks

Default TigerMoth Racing LCG V10

We are working on getting more info available to you guys so you can see the car in action and more in detail of how its features work.
The LCG was designed from the ground up to introduce some innovative new features in an interesting format and break out of the highly standardized layout of todays pro cars.

We are still doing testing with asphalt, but have had great results on carpet. We have had quite a few of the local hotshots run the car with great success and implimented many improvements right from local racers desires in a pro touring car. Our competition has been Corally and Xray and the car is definitly capable of running with those guys.

The chasis is a key element in this cars unique ability to run with only the lower deck. We recommend running the single lower deck on asphalt and adding the upper deck for carpet racing. There is just a touch of flex in the car with the single lower deck.

We will have more cars in stock next week and will be posting videos and more pix for you to see it in action!

I'd like to think I could make anything work. This one looks interesting but the cantilevers look susceptible to damage in frontal impact. Interesting design. Servo location is way cool. Not quite enough battery holder for my packs. Question is , can you get parts for it? And are they costly.
