Hi!


I can take some photos of it tonight when I get home Smile But basically, I use a bearing, a small mount for it on the motor mount, and a telescopic main shaft from an Axial SCX10.

Today I've bought another battery pack, I use a smallsized, 6 cell, 7.2 V, NiMh battery in this chassis, which, as you can see on pics, is located just in front of the rear wheels for some rear weight.
This Saturday, the driftmeet I've been waiting for a year is held, and that's where I'll test the chassis for the first time on carpet and on a real circuit, it's going to be a lot fo fun, but I think I'll be modifying some things along the two days the meet is held. Wish me luck guys!!  Mr. Green

It's fixed so I can borrow one, so it's alright Smile
It's an annual drift meet, there'll be at least 30 persons there the first day! Sure thing, I'll see what I can do Smile

Okey, in little less than an hour I'll be heading to the track, it's going to be awesome, I love the atmosphere at the Swedish meets! This'll be the first time I take it out on track with this chassis as it sits now, also first time on carpet for it! The awesome thing is that there'll be at least one more RWD chassis at the meet, which is great, the RWD revolution has begun here in Sweden for real now!

Today was awesome!! The chassis worked great aside from the spurgear and pinion which were a bit tough to adjust properly.. but I finished in the top ten when we wre going to knock down barrels, I was the only one driving a RWD chassis in that competition, so it was great to finish so high, we were after all about 25 persons in that comp! Also got new wheels and tires for the chassis, I was given a pair of HPI nitro drift tires, they worked great on both carpet and on almost polished concrete! Superhappy with the day, and I'll be heading back there tomorrow for some more action! I also traded my Axial SCX10 for a Tamiya TRF415 MSX (I think), with lots of aluminium and carbon fibre, so that'll get some new electronics soon, and I'll use it as a 50-50 chassis, though I do have the posibility to turn it into CS too. But right now, I'll use it as it is!

Okey, now I've torn down the front of the chassis again, so now I'm on my third generation of transmission. What sets this generation off from the two older ones are that I've decided to use an existing transmission in the front. I've taken the whole transmission and case from the Traxxas Slash which I got the rear diff and diff housing from. This means that this chassis is now almost more Traxxas Slash than it is Tamiya TRF415! Pics are coming in a while, I have to fix a few things first!
