Maybe have holes so you can mount the servo on either side of the chassis? Looking at putting the ESC on the right side in front of the battery may make routing the sensor wire a bit problematic.

Looks really cool though...can't wait to see what it looks like fully assembled.

Thats not a problem. I will make the steering bellcrank to allow for that as well.

Just made those changes to the chassis plate and steering bellcrank. Electronics can go either on the left or right now. I am going to just go with what I have for testing.

I'm impressed Jason. Looks really nice. I like the metric, the separate front CF body post mount being up off the chassis reducing touch offs, the bellcrank to allow for possible ackerman changes.

The rear was also narrowed drastically to reduce touch offs in the rear also. The chassis and rear lower pod are close to the same width at the widest point on the chassis.

I love the layout , this was my favorite layout that i would run on the old test car with battery down the middle and electronics on the sides. Your hitting a home run with this one Jason!

i really like the 2 piece rear dampner stay with the built in lipo locators. also i like the triangulated rear links. with this i hear the pod should be super free. also does it give slight rear steer to help with rotation and corner speed? the bumper is clever as well.

I see that the Body Mass Index is a lot lower as the chassis has had a new years resolution to lose weight! that thing is slim. I like!

the shock mount is nice as it is a sleek looking battery strap as well .

cant wait to see the rest as i love double wishbone front ends and looking forward to the rear pod to see what it will look like.

have you thought about a double bellcrank setup for the future?

I started with a dual bellcrank and i got the geometry perfect but space was an issue. I was able to get a similar outcome with the single bellcrank. If i used the strut front end a dual would have been much easier to fit. The benefit of the dual bellcrank over the single bellcrank was very slight after i found the correct pivot points on the single.

i see your point. another question are the arms going to be delrin or are they also going to be carbon fiber?? and will the ease of adjustment be as easy as the last bmi front end?

The car looks AWESOME! Can't wait to see the finished product. Like all your past designs it just looks cool.

I really like the Servo and Speedo balancing each other out and that you actually give racers a place to mount their electronics...what a novel concept...lol!

Have you thought about a floating center mounted servo mount like on the sedans?

Will you need servo saver cut outs in the chassis so it doesn't touch?

When do I need to put 12R5.2 up for sale?
