Thumbs up

How about a big ol'd BUMP for the red-headed step child of R/C racing...


I'm interested in seeing photos of some of the 235mm cars still out there (body & chassis). How many of you guys are still out there?

This was from last week... I'll post a more current shot later this evening. My new (to me) Serpent 835 with a Murnan RB X15 big block.

I have a couple 235 2wd Impacts that I am converting to laydown servo. I am looking for a 235 body, preferably a 911 style. Anybody have one they want to sell or can point me to a shop in the US that has some in stock. I have one Lola Gas body, but that it. I can get the parma alfa as well.

Default 235 rocks

Hey Dal you are right 235mm rocks.The only way i think it will have any chance here in Australia again is to make them fast buy going back to 2wd again or if they stay in 4wd is to go outlaw 5port + engines no pussy footing around with 3port i'm keen.

BRING IT ON

Default Rossi .21 in 235mm

Here is a .21 Cobra in a 235 2wd chassis. Biggest problem is exhaust lengths. Also stock motor mounts are not quite tall enough for the crankase depth. Mega .15 shown for reference.

I have an OFNA buggy steering laydown servo mount that fits between the throttle servo and the front bulkheads. I just haven't drilled mounting holes thru the top deck yet. But I did drill and install the single servo saver of an MRX-4 up front for the steering. It is only mounted at the top, may need to fab a bottom support but I don't think there is that much load on it. No mods on the chassis for the engine drop in other than it needs about a .5mm shim to raise the engine or a mill under the center of the crankcase. The biggest problem is mounting a .21 pipe on this short of a chassis. Regardless, the .21 would break traction at 1/4 throttle, I do believe, especially on a 2wd.

I have not tried....but does 21 engine exhaust outlet fit the 15 header/pipe..? Why use the 21 exhaust if the 15 one will work...? I mean...it will have some reduce performance due to the wrong pipe/header, but fitting a extra long, unfit 21 use header/pipe is just meaningless.

Overall....why fit an 21 on a 1/10th...? Simply run the 1/8th...don't forget, with the 75cc tank, running a 21 will only get you 3 minutes of run it...or less. You can mount the bigger 125cc with a custom made upper deck, but I am sure it will look absolutely rediculous....

This is not my 835....I found these pic from EBAY. I think the owner does make a good work on a custom 835, but using carbon fiber chassis on a nitro car is just doesn't make sence. But again.....it looks very good.
