Pretty kickass concept. I'm interested to hear numbers and also hear how it performs. I really like the idea!

Nice!

Does the chassis fit other mini bodies or it only able to fit ABC bodies?

I'm looking to put a Porsche RSR body or a Lancia Stratos.

These are two of the best looking and handling bodies that ABC Hobby offers.

I like the idea.
Hated seeing these vintage bodied cars running 4wd.

So how did the "track test" go, does it only being 2wd adversly affect the handling?
Any plans on a "slipper clutch"?

Basically they handled just like their 4wd counterparts with the exception of not being able to stab the throttle when the steering is cranked. Off power traction, straight line stability is spot on! You really don't need a slipper to be honest.
