Exclamation New 1/8 Buggy Design/Prototype

Guys, just two things, I've finished my design on a 1/8 nitro buggy and I am ready to make the prototype for the testing phase. I have a 3D printer and I am able to make a few plastic parts, I have access to the best in machined carbon fiber, and hardware is obviously readily available, but I need for you CNC guys to chime in if you are interested in making the aluminum and steel parts; in addition to the rest of the plastic ones.

The buggy is a completely new design; I know this is used a lot, but I truly believe my design has a lot of potential and is unlike anything on the market.

In addition, if anyone has contact info for Kingstar or other factories and does not mind to share it, again, please pm or post.

I will post a bottom picture of it, I guess I can talk a little bit about it when you guys see it.

Thanks in advance. Please feel free to post!

PS - drawings are done in Solidworks

Maybe tell us a bit more about what makes yours a completely bespoke design, what elements are different?

you'll be able to make a few assumptions from the bottom view. But I really cannot give too many details for obvious reasons.

Hmm, ok, I think telling us what is different about it is not the same as giving us the schematics to the design, but, whatever.

It looks like the engine is completely centered in the chassis. That's about the only difference I can see from this view.

That's what I was thinking The straight chassis gives it away.
