I agree wholeheartedly.

The 3rd design looks good for oval though, notice that the chassis is tilted to one side which is probably good for oval racing.

Interesting but unrealistic. Dealing with the batteries in practise, etc. would be a nightmare. Plus, although it looks balanced, it doesn't look that good center weighted.

just the jumper wires btw the battery packs will create enuf resistance to unmatch your pack ...

its cool because its a DIY but i am not too thrilled about it becoming a competitive racing car.

Just let the TC3 die already! There are better cars available in my opinion.

Hello,


Sorry for my poor english.

I drove the first "Strange car"... And yes it's a pain in the butt to change out the battery pack. But we finished the car in the morning just a few hours before photos were made. We had no time to find a better way.


Quote:
I wonder how long it takes to change battery packs ?
less than 5 minutes but we were 2

Quote:
It's obviously based on a TC3 suspension and drivetrain. Looks like they're trying to get exact 50/50 F/R and 50/50 L/R balance. It's a good idea in theory but not too practical.
It's exactly what we wanted to test

Quote:
Do you know anyone who would configure a battery pack like that?
Yes ... me.. In my opinion everybody have only two look on battery configuration. 2*3 or stick... but it's not so different. And no problems to store packs in their box.

Quote:
One thing though. It looks heavy.
Sorry .... 1500 Gr (52.91 Oz if I don't make a mistake) The chassis seems to be wide but a XXXS is larger. It's only few millimeters wide than a TC3. And we make it wide because we haven't any idea of graphite quality.

Quote:
Only One question: WHY !!
.... One answer... why not

HEY i know the TC3 is a little dated granted BUT ( yes there a big but) i still feel and so do many others that the TC3 is great, and theres no point spending loads of a new chassis that is no faster than the TC3. Its not the car that wins the race its who's controling the thumbs that counts
