    RE: Home made rc car

    Wow, impressive. Very nicely designed. Question for a fellow SW user....did you draw the tread onto the tires or is that a texture? Been trying to figure out how to make the tires look as nice as all my other parts. Thing looks sick man....keep going!

    RE: Home made rc car

    looks good, only thing I'll add is that you are going to need cross bracing for the front and rear suspension or it will fail eventually.

    Hello!

    Still missing a few things in this project.
    The body is almost ready and as soon as possible I post here some pictures

    The wheels came from a FG Stadium Truck.
    The estimated total weight is 16 kg or 35.3 lb

    RE: Home made rc car



    The gear ratio is 5.2:1
    I am using the mini pocket bike sprockets and if itdoesnt works well I can changethe gear ratio because, I have two moredifrent spockets
    The calculation that I madeat 8500 rpm'sthe speedwill be 52 KM / h or 32 mph.
    what do you thinkabout that?

    You right!!
    just look at that!



    I am using this with a 120mm disc brake.
    I don´t have a real pictureof those brakes but they came from a bike!
    they are from HOPE.
    Tomorrow I'll show a picture of the brake.
