or put the lipo in front and the tank wider also flat on the chassis.

Great improvements on a already improved car.
I'm not really a fan of the lipo on the outside, it will move weight out of the center which is a bad thing.
Since you're not able to completely lower the tank on to chassis level because it needs a lower fuel pickup point you will end up with an empty space which you can either place weight or a battery.
Designing my own tank is out of the question unfortunately because of costs. First thing in line is a new chassis.

Could I pre-order 2 sets of Carbon fibre wheel discs (for 2 cars) to beat the rush when you put them on the market? Lay down servos is a good way to lower CG; and it has been tried used by some manufacturers in some models, but we won't try this option just yet.

How much do the disks weigh? And do you epoxy a threaded plastic tube to the uprights to fix them to the car?

Keep the good work going!

Kindest regards,
Lars.
Thank you Lars.

No problem, I hope to start on the production parts end of this week or early next week.

One disk plus mounting hardware weighs 3 grams.
Yes, I used superglue to glue the threaded tubes to the uprights.

Capricorn oil is rated in cps as far as I know. So when a bottle says 55 it's 500cst oil.

This weekend I tested the new DS Motorsport parts and tests were very successful.
I ended up winning the race and setting a new track record.



The wheel discs and front bumper gave the car more grip in the high speed corners so I could turn in faster and hit the throttle earlier.
The new radio tray made the car change direction quicker and I think it had a tiny amount more steering entering the corner.
All parts were tested independently and back to back to give a true indication.

Here you can find the setup I used:

Well done and the new parts look good.
By the time I will receive My car I will try some special carbon products and maybe I will design some new carbon fibre parts.

Nice overflow for the fuel tank, is that a mod? Really wish to do soming like that to the CAP Tank as on race days since pitting is a bit aggressive fuel makes a big mess

-New radio tray design which has a lower and more centralized CoG compared to the original tray.
-Carbon fiber wheel discs which prevent turbulent air to enter the rims which causes lift.
-New front bumper/ body post for more downforce.

The radio tray is a very slim design which has been designed to be fully symmetrical in terms of flex. On throttle the design uses a low profile servo which gives the car a lower and more centralized CoG. For steering you can use both type of servo.
The entire weight of the radio tray is also lowered compared to the stock tray.
Also the entire electronic unit can be removed by just taking out 3 screws, you don't even have to remove the radio tray itself to remove the electronics.
As an extra tuning option you can move the electronics unit forward or backward to change the car's static weight balance. This is a great tuning option to set the car up for either high speed or low speed tracks.

The production version comes with a revised receiver mount which places the receiver 5mm higher. With the current design the receiver could hit the ground when you cut the corners too much.






The carbon fiber wheel discs are almost fully closed and have a very small gap to the inside of the rim. This causes a high pressure area to develop on the outside of the rim and a low pressure area on the inside. This causes an increase in grip which is especially noticeable on high speed corners.





The front body post mounting plate is designed to work together with the Mugen MTX-5 front bumper/splitter. This design gives an increase in front downforce compared to the original front bumper design. The entire assembly also takes away quite some weight in front of the front axle which will help the car to change direction quicker.





I'm also working on a new chassis design which will give the car more front end grip and fully symmetrical flex.


I'm planning on having an official press release posted on redrc at the end of next week.

yes, it was made by me for the same reason. Just a piece of lexan and using the heatgun. The tank has an fuel outlet though on wich i put a piece of tubing to lead the excess fuel beneath the car.

IMO you would really only go to the low profile servos to save weight. Since the Cap is obviously a very light car out of the box there really isnt any disadvantage to going to full size servos.

Again just my opinion.
