Now I'm onto the next build! I wanted to do a "scale" chassis. Visually it probably won't be too crazy scale, I just wanted to do a scale suspension setup as it is something I have always wanted to do. Sorry if this project moves along slowly. I don't have much time
To work on it, but I will update when I can.
The front knuckles are just printed for now, but I will probably end up making some out of aluminum after I get everything finalized. The shocks are old team Losi ".36" shocks.
For the rear axle I am using a narrowed axial axle. I may get an SSD axle case for it though. I am hoping to so a separate spring and shock on the back, but may have to do coilover if I use the SSD case.
Chassis layout is still up in the air, but I am pretty sure I know how I want to do it.
Now, I have some questions for you guys. I have never done anything with RWD drifting(except my 1:1 car, haha)
-- I see people using like 80deg of angle, is that really required? Or can I get away with like 50 or 60?
-- what about weight balance front to rear? I was going to make it slightly forward bias weight for stability. I'm just going off of 1:1 cars and I'm sure it will be a little different with 1/10 but I am unsure.
