Alright guys -
I am buildin gmy own RC car from scratch, however i will be salvaging some parts from others trucks like the DIFFS and shocks.
I designed this car around what i wanted from it, Its not a looker i know but it will be functinal!
I designed it to drive upside down and the right way up, full rollcage, 8 shocks allowing full suspension travel both directions, all arms are made from steel bar and are tringulated.
I have done a BASIC drawing in cad as to how she will look when finished - I hope to make a start in the next couple of weeks on this beast.
As for specs, it will be powered by 2 550 motors(maybe brusless undecided yet) pulled from an EMAXX, it will use 8 x 5000mah 2S lipos for SEIRIOUS long runtimes
Its going to use a 4 wheel steering setup & 4 wheel drive.
The main components will be steel and aluminium with the odd bit of plastic here & there, I am using mostly 5th scale components in critical places on the 8th scale car to give stength.
All ball joints are M8, the arms are 2 x 12mm steel
Chassis consists of 2 x 3mm sandwiched decks
All in all this car due to its simplicity shoul not weigh much more than a REVO or SAVAGE(typical 8th scale MT)
Let me know your thoughts, and sujestions & critisism is all welcome!
PLEASE EXCUSE MY VERY CRUDE CAD DRAWINGS - I'm pretty bad at CAD
The shock design isn't final and i may change it yet.
I have what i think come up with the final design now, the shocks MAY still use a torstion bar to aid centeralizing the shocks and keeping them there to help with the 'wobble'
I am hoping to make a start on this next month, unfortunatly i cannot do it right now as i have to go for an operation on my shoulder which is going to make it difficult for me to do any of the manual work on this car.
With electrics installed.
Or maybe this is a little over kill but more than possible...
All drawn to scale, thats 2 x mamba monster Max systems, 10 x 2S lipo 5000mah, to give 25,000mah over 4S
