Hope you enjoy it! The thing was ridiculously fast with a mamba system in it. There was no way I could go full throttle with it.
My first suggestion would be to get rid of the rear camber. I did that thinking it would handle turns better, but ultimately it took away too much rear grip, meaning you couldn't apply throttle or brakes without losing control.
I can't remember the mods that I did, but I think I switched to 4tec arms, and some odd combination of parts to use hex wheels in the front,
A full carbon fiber chassis should be pretty simple, with that design. Would also be a good opportunity to upgrade the front steering to a bellcrank.
HAH glad to see youre still around!!!
And from what I can tell the 4tech arms, and right on the front end pieces too.... Im guessing theyre from the old rustler era where they used the 5X8 bearings... I'll have to find a set.
Since you're on, I found a new gearbox, chassis and front bulkhead. Im looking into prices of 2.5mm CF sheets to make a chassis and new upper brace, possibly change the shock position as Jang did on his.
What would be the benefit of using a belcrank system?
Fun build and Im really excited to see it finished................ eventually!
If you remember the parts that you used on the front, hit me up cause I plan to replace them too.
scratch that.... think I just found them!!!
Pics will come soon!
