I'm already working on the 4.0!!
No, really. I radically changed the design with something better.
Anybody out there willing to help me out with the making of some of the custom parts I will need?

I can carve a fish out of a bar of soap. Will that help?

The G. Fab car was tested under vigorus conditions and this is the best way to have a car built. Standard ESC cannot power this type of monster. Will blow up and smoke. 6 Cell pack is also not viable, because we found this way to be ideal with GF1400's. (New Prototype Batteries exclusive to G. Fab). If we put GF1400's all on one side, the car will be horribly balanced.

New version with titanium lightweight suspension and balsa 5mm chassis is to come out in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

You have to excuse Myker*, for he helped design the car.

The Street Weapon was used extensively in our design of this prototype, because as you know, the best way to make a successful R/C car is to copy a, um, successful R/C car. The balsa chassis is meant to counter the flex produced by the counterrotating masses. My A- in Physics for non Physics majors tells me that this car should be, in International Competition as successful as, if not more successful, than the Trinity Street Spec. Oh, balsa chassis not suggested for carpet

Oh well... Good luck on your design. You're using balsa wood for the chassis? Balsa would not be durable for RC cars. It cracks easily especially in cases of hard impacts. Plus it will scrape the under chassis off easily in case of scratches from the ground, especially asphalt. Right?

All I need to know is, are you taking this serious Nicadrauspro4. Because if you aren't you are way behind on the pre order list for this car. See www.preorderforacarthatwillneverhappen.com you will not be diassappointed.

I'm serious. Good luck to you too. I'd rather wait for new models from HPI, HB, Xray or Tamiya and upcoming. They're the experts. I'm also waiting for scooby's design instead.

HOLY $%#!
It costs anywhere between $5000-$10000 to patent an Idea!!
Besides, I don't think you can patent this type of idea anyways.
They say that it has to be a "non-obvious" idea. Something that nobody has thought of before. If it has been thought of before, there has to be nothing written about it for at least a year and this includes online!
Well I guess there goes my plans!
Anyways, here were my plans.
If you see them manufactured some day, you can say Scoobydo thought of it first!
Let me know what you think.
The first is a design using the same layout most cars are using today.
The second requires special pinion gears that have to be beveled.
The third requires saddle packs.
BTW, the chassis I comped with is a Pro4 chassis.

Scooby those dsigns are awesome I think the 1st and 2nd designs are the most practical as the third one is a little more complex than the other two.
See if u can find a local machinist to help you make up a prototype and then if ti works maybe get a bigger company to help with production.

i think #3 would be the best. even though it is more complex by having the shaft in the back you will still get the nice response of the shaft drive, and with the belt up front you will get the smooth handling in the corners! but it would take some mighty fine gearing to get the belt to equal out to the power that shaft has. that belt would flex giving it to drag off the start were the shaft would grip and go! i could see sreding belt being a problem! but i give you prop as it is a awsome consept. and it would be sweet if you cout get it to work good. but i would run the batteies in the middle like the jrxs run the shaft up one side and the belt up the other. this would save those of us who dont like saddle packs! keep working on it!
