I don't think he needs to take notes. I bet more than one company has looked into different design concepts. We'll see what developes for the worlds since the Nats require the car to be available in shops.

Default riddle me this Batman...

With all the talk of "concept testing" relating to a/the new car, the threads seem to indicate the majority feel that the car being tested used a belt system?

I would like to head hear from those at the track Thursday evening. Did anyone else notice the drive train failure in the test car at the end of the night....if so, did you think that car sounded like a belt drive system?

Hey,
the best thing Losi could do was, taking the Tamiya 415 and build in the single belt, using the goog Losi bearings and titan screws and sell it as the new Losi Touring car. In Germany on carpet the most drivers have no chance against a 415. This car with the efficient single belt would be the best in the world !!!

this car uses suspension parts from Hong Nor. But the chassis layout and drivetrain is developed and produced by Robitronic itself.

I donīt know if Ofna is related to Hong Nor but the cars from Ofna any most of the GM-Racing cars in reality are Hong Nor.

The 1987 CAT was a really crazy car. There was a oneway in the front and a very short wheelbase so the car had tons of steering and was very difficult to drive. At the 1987 Offroad worlds in the UK a long wheelbase chassis and some other new parts were released and it worked very good. In fact at this worlds a unknown driver from Japan called Masami Hirosaka appeared and went World Champion using a CAT at this race.

what my whole idea about the new car, there just going to take the pro3, and do it right. Hpi could have made the car better, and losi is just going to tweak it a bit, and make it work awesome.

Hey guys,
have you ever seen an 415 racing on carpet with rubber tires?
This car is so fast and absolute easy to drive! I don't think that a pro3 can be such good, because hpi has built a complete new car and not a better pro3. The last race in Germany i've seen won marc reinhard (he drives a 415) with about 20 Seconds in front of the 2nd(He was German Champion on carpet in 2002) and it was a large national race. So in my opinion the car to beat is the new tamya 415. Every guy who drives this car says that it is absolutely easy and verry fast to drive. So please Mr T.Hodge
built us a faster 415 but as easy to drive!!!!!!
Best regards from Germany
Felix
