I uh...think they should go with a shaft/belt drivetrain design. The motor would be located in the center of the chassis, and would have a shaft hooked right onto the armature, then with a complex series of gears, and the use of three belts the rear end would get power, as the shaft off of the arm provides the front ends power. I would like to see an on-board water cooling system kind of like my computer has, then a triple deck design. I would like the batteries to be split into a 3+1+1+1 design to optimize weight distribution. Ya... I think that would work...

Why can't everyone just wait until AE releases official info on the car?!?! Instead of jumping to conclusions about something that may not even be, and probably is not, the final version.

Just my 58 cents.

to be honest MitsFitz, I think Cliff Letts word can be taken as official.... Read the Rczone.net link. Ok the details may change, but I would expect thats pretty much the car that'll be released.

yup

IIRC, the pre-production of the TC3 had carbon plate shock towers. Looking at that car, considering the towers are moulded, it would suggest the car isn't far off a production version, given the costs involved with making/adjusting moulds....

Still, I'm sure some more details will come out soon.

(and just pulling your leg a little MisFitz)

If I Recall Correctly.

Fraid I can't help with the diff Q, have never run a TC3, but doesn't mean I'm not interested in the new car.

You might as well get the yokomo. Same design. The difference in the two might just be that the tc4 will have a lighter drive train.

"do you guys believe everything you read?"

"I think I have the Part No.

It's #123-GOTCHA"

"Please share a part number Kevin. I think they forgot to tell all the team guys about it."


How do you like your crow? Cold or with Humble pie?
