    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car


    ORIGINAL: -JBLKING-

    How long do you estimate this project to take start to finish and how long have you spent on it already?*
    Difficult to estimate how long it will take...I usually work on it a couple nights per week spending about 2-3 hours each night. I really don't have a set plan, I'm just winging it! I could spend an hour or two working on some part and then don't like the completed item so then I do it over from a different angle ...
    Been working on and off on it since November, haven't actually been keeping a record...for me the satisfaction comes from building and the challenges it brings!

    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car

    Do any of you guys have access to an rc motor bike? Like the venom GPV or the 450 dirt bike? I want to try to mod / adapt the front disc brake to work on this chassis, but I need to know the diameter of the brake disc before I buy the kit.

    I dont sorry but that is a great idea! Are the brakes functional? What material are you using for the roll cage?

    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car

    I used styrene round rods to make the cage...1/4" I believe it was....
    The rc motorbikes disc brakes are functional. Mechanically operated by a cable attached to a servo....!

    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car

    Those brakes would be great! They definitely need to make more. The normal motor brakes dont necessarily stop a chassis from rolling forward a good 5-10feet without rolling into reverse. A direct disk break would definitely be functional.

    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car

    Also got in the rotor discs and the caliper kits ! Still need to fab up a mount to attach the calipers to the wheel hub, shouldn't be too difficult! The system is servo activated using brake cables similar to bicycle brake cables!

    RE: Looking for a Rear Wheel Drive OnRoad Car

    This is how it stands now...will have to figure out a way to mount the micro servo to get the disc brakes working....probably fab a mount of some kind...!

    At this point, the finished product doesnt even compare to the time, work, and innovation you are putting into this. This is the definition of a hobby and hobbyist right here - engineering for fun! I am very impressed!

    Another update!...
    The cables that came with the kit were definitely too short...! So I picked up the Sullivan Gold n Cable .032". This was a perfect substitute!
    Original cable compared to the Sullivan cable..
