Took a bunch of cars to my local track and drove around for about 3 hours.
took the DM-1 Spec E now with 6S and 17T pinion. It took off on the straight, literally. So I dropped it back to the 13T for this track and it works well. Tyres are a problem. The other problem was that I was so excited to drive it I forgot to video it… DUH.
Though, here is a video collection of the other cars I drove.
It’s just driving with no music, add your own.
Got my VDS yesterday and starting building it immediately. Here is a slideshow of some of the pictures I took.
The build was great, I spent about 3 hours last night getting it to rolling chassis with no shocks. Then built the shocks today.
I fit thin plastic sheet as a bladder valve under the piston inside the shock, which gives fast bump/slow rebound.
This is actually the first time I have built a carbon chassis car from scratch and must say it was interesting.
I also fitted an Active-hobby Counter unit in the rear, currently it has a 150% gearing, but I also have the 200% gears in spares. The counter unit in the rear means I had to modify the inside of the diff case, which took the most time last night.
This chassis will be my new drift cars and as such has the Street Jam tyres mounted on +10 offset wheels and an HPI Toyota Mark 2 Weld X 200mm body.
