After some weight, weight distribution, power, gear ratio, motor timing, etc... tinkering, I got my dragster up to 108 kph today. I have just a few more tricks up my sleeve, hoping to achieve 115 when I apply those. New goal is set at 120 kph... Let's see if I can make it ;)

Won't give out too many details, as this car will be running in a compo pretty soon. More info after I annihilated all competition there...

More info on the car: check my other showroom entry or www.killerkip.be.




Picture as proof ;)

OMG that is really fast... You can probably beat lots of nitro cars with that machine!

Which kind of device you used? I did some GPS recordings on my cars, but it seems to be impossible to beat 40-50 Kmh (depending on the model). I'm mainly interested in the motor and aerodynamics you adopted to keep this rocket down on the earth

Check my site for more info. I have been fiddeling around with gear ratios, have added a spektrum receiver, and cut some of the body to optimize wind resistance. Now I'm just waiting for a new, lexan spoiler to get the weight down, and I'm off to the next test. Pretty sure I'll beat 110-115 - but I'lml have to wait and see... [Click here]
