Adobe don`t allow to save the sheet on your harddisk, but in the web you find some freeware tools, which make it possible.

Perhaps my thinking is wrong?
Im really not sure, im just using the above reference and adding some simple memory clues to it.

The forum does have search capabilities within a thread. There is a wealth of information here if you're willing to spend some time digging for it. Just type in "ackerman" (yes, with just one "n", because it is often misspelled) and see what other people have to say about it..

Default Rear roll center

I have one doubt about rear roll center that I haven't found any anwser in this thread:

If I remove the upright spacers from the rear block suspension this will lower rear roll center, right?

It makes to car roll more when you remove shims from the rear uprights.
If I had to guess it would be considered lower with out the shims.

Anything I "manufacture" will be solely for personal use. I'm looking foward to the challenge of trying to come up a shrinkwrapped lower CG kit, doing the CAD thing, learning how to use the 3D scanner and trying the prototyper, but I am really far off from being able to produce something for public consumption. Good thing my friend is an expert when it comes to composite materials - as I don't know jack.

Mugen Germany is more suited to producing something for the mass market. You should contact them. They know what they're doing.

instead of all that milling you guys are doing. I suggest lightening the car
as much as possible with ti parts on the drive train & suspension and just use a battery tray with weights such as the one borders rc is selling or there is another one made of brass.

My car right now with some aluminum hop ups is still 1705 grams with the body on which is still 30 grams underweight.

I would never consider milling carbon fiber parts. I was reading up on that last night and doing it is extremely hazardous without the proper protective gear and place to do it!

Default Skyline's alum mid block & locked Front one-ways

Are there anyone here using Skyline's alum mid block? I'm considering throwing this in my car and wonder if this worth the small investment. I'm also, since I'm at it, I'm also thinking about adding locked front one-ways. Any inputs guys. http://gasrccar.com/eshop/newsdesk_i...eccb1b385b9799
