Integy had a similar design, but it wasn't shaft, it was belt. The motor was mid mounted with the batts near the rear diffs similar to this design. The problem they had was too much weight at the rear wheels and they had problems with the car cornering fast, and understeering. If you guys build a prototype, I hope your design works better.

true racing do you know if Xray is coming out with a shaft-driven car?
I already had T1R, and i think i am going to upgrade to a FK.

I really Don't know, Also why would I tell?. If i was you but Im not, Get a t1r used cheap. Buy a BMI 80$ chassis, Comes wtih topdeck and Chassis. The New Bulkheads... After all you will have a 3mm chassis(bling bling), Bulkheads, And a Good car for under 300$.

I hate to be the only negative comment here, but what are the real advantages to this design? What are you offering other then the 'wow' factor?

The way I see it, there are MANY shortcomings with the TC3, of which the chassis is NOT the most major.

I DO like the fact that you address the motor mounting scheme as I feel that is one of the major mechanical deficiencies of the car (along with the part tolerances - especially diff cases), and even the steering setup (I think the classica bell crank is a much better design) however, I just don't see the point.

On a positive note, that's some really good modeling. Did you do it in Pro/E?

THere is no real advantages As in Weight distribution Etc. The only way find out is by testing it and comparing. The Modeling was done by Sammy on a Program called unigraphics i think it was. Only testing will see if this setup is better than Stock.

True, why dont they put the batteries in front? i think it might be better because than your going to have more weight to the front, helping suspension, in my opinion. Just a thought.
