Working on the arm mounts now for the front end. Its looking pretty cool. I will post some pics soon. I should have them done this week. I wish I could spend all of my time on this stuff but I am filling other shop obligations at the same time.

Jason, if it helps these are the dimensions of my gear

Futaba FHSS & FASST Micro RX's: 35.1x23.2x8.5mm
Futaba 3650 Servo: 35.5x15.0x28.6mm
Spektrum H5020G Servo: 34.7x14.7x30.5mm
HobbyWing v2.1 1S ESC: 43 x36x15mm (Its listed at 33mm tall but that's the TC version with the HS and the fan)

I'm only worried about my Rx. Everything else should fit.

I got the springs we talked about. Will send them to you tomorrow.

I think the v3 1S is going to be just about as tall but maybe a little smaller foot print.

My RX: Sanwa RX-381 = 37.5x24.7x14.1mm ( I have a few other Sanwa RX's and they are all similar in size.)
My Servo: Futaba 9650 = 36 x 15 x 29mm

My RX is also what I am the most concerned about, it cant go on top of the servo without being so tall it wont let the body sit flat.

Adrian you sure you didn't mean 9650 above? the Z3650 is a JR model Servo

I meant FUT9650...sorry.

The HW v3.1 1s is 37x37mm and a little taller than the v2.1. Not sure the dim. as all the ones listed are for the unit with a fan.

It looks like it should fit gut tightly. When I get the prototype finished, we can try to mount it all up. It looks like the speedo and RX and one side and servo and transponer on the other side.

Cool! Tight guts are better than loose guts

Here are a couple of pics of the arms and arm mounts. I will be making the C hubs and spinles shortly. Just for a heads up, I cant answer the question of why there is pivot balls on the inside ends of the arms at this time. You will see why very soon.

Looks great so far Jason. Can't wait to see the finished product.

That looks awesome Jason. Have you thought about the potential use of a sway bar ??

Looks very nice! At first I thought the ball studs on the inside of the arms was for the shocks but then realized they would move the wrong direction...is this going to be some sort of bell crank shock setup to keep everything low?

Ride height changes done via shims like normal front ends?

Looks real interesting!

Ride height will be set via shock collars and or shims under the hinge pin blocks. It will be just like TC suspension adjustment.

This great. You can use shims under the mounts to change ride height and maintain suspension geometry or use the shock collars to change ride height with suspension arm angles.
