Default KM Racing K8 1/8th GP

Just saw the renderings of the chassis on the net, looks very promising and I wonder how it will affect the handling with the steering servo secured on the chassis. This year's IFMAR is gonna be quite interesting!~

Default hmm

Is it just me, or is every 1/8 4wd starting to look exactly alike? I honestly think someone designed a car over 10 years ago, and then everyone has made a duplicate of it ever since with minor changes that probably don't amount to squat overall...

LOL... only so many parameters you have to do things before things start looking the same. I like how they have carried over the same sort of radio tray layout and receiver box from the 10th scale model.

Yeah, it was called the Serpent Vector. Then we got laydown steering servos with the MRX-3 and VectorNT. They've all been pretty much the same since then.

And yet, they don't all run the same. The devil is in the details.

They could look the same at face value but trust me they are very different. At 70 MpH the smallest changes make a huge difference.
