I've re entered this car as theres been a complete change of plan, It now has a widened frot end
and chassis giving an extra 3cm at front, thats 215mm (8 1/2 inches) in total. The backend has also been pulled out 3mm each side to bring outer rear wheels in track
of fronts. This chassis is still a template for a carbon fibre 1 piece version.
I believe the MIP 4WD kit came before any producton 4WD model kit and this is the mark 1 version.
Gearbox has CRP 2 way gear diff, brass gears and full bearings, front gearbox bearings and 1 way MIP diff, making this assisted 4WD as power only goes to the front when required. If you want to revert and run the car as 2WD you can by removing the cable NEAT!!!
I've got a much cracked and repaired origional scorcher body for this one now and plan to match colour scheme with chassis, the drive cable seems impossible to tuck under RR body.
Thanks to the master of all things MIP (Shodog) I finally have rear swing arms so all the pats are there now, I've got some more tweaks and tidying up on the chassis bfore finalising design.br>
Huge thanks mostly to Shodog & TWINSET and RCgrabbag for fantastic repro body parts and Volksrod for final bits & Pieces :-).
Soon I will update this description as the evolution does not seem to stop. The chassis gets longer/shorter and the back just gets wider with every new bit! One day its gota settle LOL.
Now in a good home and the most capable hands of mrlexan. http://www.tamiyaclub.com/showroom_model.asp?cid=43638&sid=514 & I'm not sure but I don't think he wants to sell it.
