Mugen Mrx4x Carbon Fiber Chassis!!!!
 
5 Attachment(s)
Mabry Modified Mrx4x nirto prototype Hopup chassis. This is my All carbon fiber "First to be done that I know of" Mrx4x chassis 90% done. I just have to countersink and add the rest of the screws.

nice work

many years ago there where carbon fibre chassis available for some factory cars but then they discovered alloy chassis was part of your heat sink for your engine.

just keep an eye on your block temp .

Will do

The car looks great but it is true the chassi act like a heat sink be careful!!!! :)

most onroad cars chassi are made for just that to take some of the heat off the motor.

:D like you said MANY YEAR AGO nitro engines and technology to keep them running cool has came a long way.
After running my car the temps have went down. NOW is it do to the new frame,:confused: or that the frame doesnt hold heat like you say maybe the motors heat sink,car being lighter,sleeve cooling ports,oil in fuel an air flow can now focus on just cooling the motor not the alloy frame as well as the motor too...... maybe im wrong I been wrong before.lol


It LOOKS SICK!!!!!

very cool project indeed. i have wanted to do this for a long time.



here is something you may dig.

quattro with CF chassis plate. raced by rody roem in 1987.

most interesting, note the ply of metal under the motor mounts.

the temp we are talking about is down round the bearings.

it's fun playing with old ideas.

vaboy10211 07-04-2010 12:35 PM

ya I will keep a eye on my bearings temps....
