    RE: DIY 1/4 CARS RCMK 600B

    why do offshore manufacturers insist on using the 5b platform for everything other than there are probably warehouses full of clones available dirt cheap.

    i see a shaft driven 4wd conversion...shame they didn't put in any effort to actually come up with something new instead of flogging an old dead horse who's platform is a long way short of great.

    made by who knows but marketed by fidracing.com an gtbracing.com (same company with 2 names)

    Whatever happened to the day when quarter-scale cars were made of welded steel tube and alloy.
    This thing looks like it's 90% plastic.
    Insert big YAWN here.
    If people want a plastic car they buy small scale stuff.
    Now can we get back to something interesting, like your welded tube and alloy home-build Moo. It's far more impressive.

    For all the Quarter Scale Car photos you'll ever want to see, and none of the BS that came with Quarter Scale Legends

    it looks a bit like a baja yes but is you look closer it's totally different ... its not just a converted baja chassis ia a lot wider to start with ... front c hubs look like losi 5 or rampage etc
    im keen to see more of it ...

    show me where you can buy a off the shelf 1/4 scale 4wd with a twin in it ??????

    i think this look great !!

    I cant see one bit of that car that is from a baja, the only resemblance is it has 4 wheels.

    This is the FID 4wd concept, and by the looks of it this a prototype with 3d printed plastics.
    Correct me if i'm wrong FID but being an engineer i kinda recognize prototype stuff pretty easily, just don't tease us actually make this thing please!

    The only ressemblance I see to a Baja is the front shock tower design! or maybe Moo's computer is showing another pic?????

    on first glance it looked like a 5b so i paid it little heed, however after the benefit of seeing the following pics i can see it is bespoke so i stand corrected and apologize to fid, i still think it resembles the 5b on a quick glance but it now has my interest

    looks good , but that front bumper will crumble really bad , in a crash , double side fuel tanks is interesting , looks nothing like a hpi baja .

    RE: DIY 1/4 CARS RCMK 600B

    I like the individual parts and the project as such...... but I think the overall look and proportions are horrible [&:]
    Bigger wheels and different roofline would probably make it look better.


    Then again I suppose it's a good idea to see how it handles first and worry about the cosmetics later....
    Will keep watching to see where this goes.



    And no, I couldn't design anything like this myself, but I still have opinions


    If it ain\'\'t broke..... pull it apart anyway!

    i cant read chinese , it looks like the head gaskets were removed and smeared on some gasket silicone instead ? thats bad. motor is going to get really hot with a very tight squish like that

    RE: DIY 1/4 CARS RCMK 600B

    the rcmk gaskets are pretty thin, about half of a 4 bolt zen, but it will still decrease the squish a few thou...
    personally i'd use gaskets to goo, properly torqued they don't leak, if i do use goo i use just enough for a very thin layer on each surface so i don't get goo squidgeing out the seams, seems like quite a lot in the pictures...it doesn't take much to squidge out to disrupt the airflow thru the transfers

    i looks like a chrysler 300 station wagon weighed down at the back with groceries



    i'm interested to see it run... and stiffer rear springs should help some

    I knew it reminded me of something but couldn't put my finger on it.
