The body is ready and its chassis time.

I'll start with hub - calliper part, always cast alum , 22mm piston dot oil use.

The difficult step is the prototypes ,different for each wheel (symmetrical ) and now are ready to make the mould and the final parts.

The prototype chassis , alum + acetal .
Its a strong build , low cost but with difficulties to screws.Finally I'll make it all alum ,on different lines on the same think.

Servos have position in ( on ?) chassis so i dont need many parts.
Double steering servos , double arms and horizontal absorbs as always but to other direction .

OMG...Very nice...Hope you will protect well the steering servo with front foam bumpers...
Do you plane to do a tuning exhaust as well? 4 hydraulic brakes? cause I see the mount for servo after the front axle
Can't wait the following steps and the first start.
Cheers.
Whoz.

I have 2 alum + foam bumpers. No to me, Im a great driver ( ......remember the street gighter crash at first 5 min... ).
I'll use 45cc engine and not tuning exhaust at the moment.
Of course 4 hydro brakes.

There are 2 other servo mounts in front of the engine,for brakes and throtle one right or left and a free one for transmitter box .

Thanks mate
