Sorry my bad I didn't read the post thouroughly on the ring gear deal before I commented you be correct.

all that stuff you listed I will have new parts for by mid next year.
I finished the first 4- 7075 chassis's today. they should be available in a few months. 4mm thick tapered on the outside no hole behind the engine. Projected avail october

Alumunium diff cases and bronze pinions are going to come out of the prototype shop in 3 weeks. Projected avail october

Carbon decks to hold a mugen tank with the new chassis will be
avail mid October

Mid ship car kit with the engine turned around and a midship transmission will hopefully come 2004. The drive shaft will be offset to one side and the engine will be more centered in the car on the roll axis. The biggest reason for doing this is carb in front means cool air in and exhaust in back (well) It also allows us to run normal tuned pipes as the pipe will be on the other side of the car. It will also still have 1 driveshaft only.

RCKID: I guess know one else is going to tell you but I think the 2 speed troubles your having is you are adjusting the wrong 2 screws in the 2 speed! Thats about the only way it can be stuck in 2 nd gear.

Hey guys. Some of you may know me from the RCCA and HPI boards (especially around the GT and NTC3 posts. ) Anyways, I am just saying hi.

Motorman, it sounds like you have some excellent ideas for the car. I can sort of envision what you are describing, but from my past observations, it has seemed like cars with chassis designs like you are describing haven't been very popular for racing (but hey who the heck ever heard of an engine sitting on the driver side of a shaft driven car either ). I'm not the only one to say this, but I'm anxious to see what someone can make for the car.

This whole tank thing is still bugging me though. I had one of the first run cars, I am running a 12 TR, and the stock tank, yet I am having none of the problems many people have described. I do not race (no tracks in area), but I do plenty of parking lot running (set up tracks with cones and run for an hour or two with some friends), so it is not like the car is not experiencing racing conditions. Any input?

Why a 4mm chassis? 7075T6 3mm would be fine and you won't gain as much weight.The hard coated chassis's are stiffer then the stock one and they are still 2.6mm.Why not titanium? Its stronger per weight and also has somewhat of a memory.Expensive yes but its a viable option.

After looking at the HB HPI rs4-3 it looks to me as if there is still no way to adjust the toe angle and you will be spending quite a bit more for all those goodies rather than just buying the right car to begin with.having the engine facing this way is fine with me as it redefines the way I look at a competitive car.

Uhm. Titanium has one of the worst thermal conductivity capabilities, and ok. Titanium is light, and rigid, but a bad crash and you can get your chassis on small pieces, the tensile strengt is high, but the impact standing is low and prone to break. I'll prefeer some good 7075 or 9xxx Al-Zr Alloys like Trek uses for their Fuel bike frames.

I agree with Corse R, Ti would not be a good chassis material.

Default SERPENT TANK MOD

Here are the Mods I did with the tank to move it as far away from the header as possible.
