Thanks Ed. Got it...it's on the way. This should work nicely for the F104W-GP I just finished.

Hey guys, does anyone know if the plazma would fit a silver can? That's the spec motor we run over here still. A bit behind the times.

If the Silver Can is a 540 Motor, then it should fit.

Has anyone replaced their standard axle with a graphite one? It looks shorter than a 1/10 axle, more like a 1/12 one. Thanks, Ed

Which optionals do you feel are essential for the Plazma to be equal to the rest of the field in terms of performance?

I am planning on making the PZ101 front suspension and PZ102 upper arm of the Plazma Formula with 3d printing with some modifications, so that the front will meet 190mm.

If anyone is interested, I will post some pics once it's done.

Unfortunately, there isn't much of a choice for me on materials.

The material will be PA2200 with a tensile strength of 6962 PSI, tensile modulus of 247000 PSI, Izod Impact of 32.8 KJ/m2, Izod notched impact of 4.4 KJ/m2.

Comparing to ABS plastics it is stronger as ABS's mechanical properties are:

Tensile strength of 3200 PSI, tensile modulus of 236000 PSI, Izod Impact of 13 KJ/m2, Izod notched impact of 2.1 KJ/m2.

I will post some pictures once I receive them. Should be around 2 weeks.

Have you had time to test the strength of the parts that you printed???

Yes I did, Had a club race last Sat and at the end of the day, I did an intentional crash at 3/4 of full speed.

It did not break. The pictures were taken after the crash.

Also, because it had shorter width, I had to change the adjuster rods to 1/12 plazma's rods. KYO92414 - Kyosho 42mm Titanium Adjuster Rod

So, when you are going to produce these pieces for the market and how much will you be asking for the arm set?
