Been quiet for a while, but not idle. I like my T3-01 Dancing Rider, looks cool and quirky, lots of fun to drive. But it's a bit unstable and tips over very easily if the ground isn't smooth (which it isn't around here!). So I got another one to tinker with...
Talking to my kids, trying to figure out a name for the little monster (Dancing Ray? Manta Rider? Nope!) so we went with the chassis name. I suggested the T3-OMG but then they came up with the T3-WTF so that's its new designation, though to be honest it mainly gets called 'the trike thing'.
It's basically the front of the Dancing Rider with the back end of a Manta Ray grafted on, and a few tweaks to the steering so it can lean more. The wheels and tyres are TLT-1/ Tumbling Bull fronts. The body is trimmed a bit shorter at the back and part of the rear of the chassis has been cut away to clear the longer steering arm. It looked a bit odd so the wing was added for a bit of drama and it sort of visually links the back end to the body.
It's only had a couple of short test runs so far but it works! It's more stable on uneven ground but handling/steering is similar to the orignal, just feels a bit more planted. Even with a silver can motor it's a fair bit quicker than the original but I think I'm going to have to make a wheelie bar...!
Hope you like it.
