Technical fun project with a RWD twin motor set-up and a no-limit Novak GT7 ESC.
Loads of torque but the plastic 'lightweight diff' just can't handle it...!!! So I went back to the original steel hubs and used a little Anti Wear grease, now it works better...great actually! Next step: even bigger motors...imagin'...I'm running a 52/25 gear ratio right now but I can go to about 52/35. More of the built can be read on the forum: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=33377&hl=

The body is a Williams style to go with the decals of the Renault.
The 'chimneys', 'chicken wings' and the mirrors are from a Nikko F1 Renault.

The chassis is custom made from carbon fibre, a nightmare to cut but I love this stuff!
It weighs 1563 grams (loaded), original weight is 1511 grams (4WD, loaded), one motor weighs 171 gr...you do the math...
