Default My, Flex-Car

Hey guys I have almost finished my winter project ........The Flex Car. I am trying to revieve parking lot racing where I live. The Flex Car is a pan car that is design to run on a parking lot. Now as you know most parking lots are bumpy this car has a simple suspension to handle a less than perfect surface. The heart of the system is a T-Plate and an Associated Strut suspension for the front end. If this prototype demostrates that it can run on a bumpy surface then I will go on to the second step and make it bulletproof.

This car is 1/8 scale. And the tires are just regular 1/8 scale. To get 1/8 scale tires to fit on your ntc3 you would need adapters. WolfpackRadicals use to manufactor them a while ago sometimes you can find them for sale on E-bay.

........ Next best solution would be to get some 40mm wide tires from RC Market. These tires are made by Xceed and require no adapters to fit on your 1/10 scale car. Not quite as wide 1/8 scale but wider than your stock 1/10 scale 30mm rears. Check with them they might have some in stock they sell out kinda fast.
