Its alive !!!! Lol ...true aussie style ..do some donuts haha ..

The main "gear on gear" is very noisy ..the mesh is fine ..
Not sure how noisy it should be metal on metal .

The mesh noise goes away when it starts moving at say 5mph+

I will take it for a proper drive next week onroad.

Watch "Project solid" on YouTube

i love building these projects and showing them off , i know alot of people watch the build but dont comment so sometimes it is hard to know if a project like this is really wanted here . i know rc tech is full of mostly racers . i really enjoy creating cars from nothing . making parts work that were not made to "drop right in" .. anybody can order from the "options list /hopups" and fit something that was designed for your car . the real challenge is making random parts fit and look like its from a factory .

I think many of us here are engineers at heart, and love to see custom designed builds. For me at least, there is nothing more rewarding then taking an idea born in the imagination, and creating a car out of it. If fact, I usually build my cars that way, designing them entirely inside my head before physically starting anything. So keep up the good work, and keep posting updates!

Awesome yeah I work for a aerospace engineering company ,its funny I usually have ideas for my next project before I finish the current one ..but this one I really want to drive alot . Just order 30x m3 nyloc nuts to go over the whole car ..I still need to glue the tyres . Give the car a wheel alignment .mount receiver.. then its done .

Default update

Been driving the car a little bit lately ..it drives terrible :/ ..lol ..all the engineering works flawlessly no hiccups at all mechanically..

Its just so super twitchy ... I think I need to slow the steering right down .the car steers on a dime making it hard to even drive in a straight line ..

Add that to torque steer from the locked diff..

Iv got alot of set up to do I think :/.

Also .
Im having douts if the brushless motor is set up correctly.

Under say 4mph its notchy and noisey ..over that its smooth and quiet ..its like under 4mph its struggling bad ..then fixes it self and drives perfect.
Struggles at low rpm like its out of its range.

Definitely take some steering out and regarding the motor, it sounds like cogging. If the motor is sensorless, then that sounds normal, as the esc has difficulty locating the motor's magnet at low speeds. With sensored motors, the powerband will be smooth throughout.

Yes it is ..just a run of the mill old 8.5t sensorless ezrun from hobbywing ..the esc is sensored so I will upgrade the motor in the future .I just wanted to prove out everything worked before buying a new motor .
Iv been reading up on "exp" on transmitters ..I may turn that down to take out the twitchiness..maybe a shorter steering horn as well
