Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

jds monte carlo. i think 3007 pn.  I was wondering if other bodies were wider, as those tires are .460 wide and that is all that will fit....anyway goal for the car is to break 100mph in the 1/4

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

thanks i will try that body next.  i was always strictly into inline hardbody cars but i enjoyed this build.  Best part is mounting through a clear body.  That usually gives me fits with a hardbody...lol.  now i need to figure out the power.  i have a full size c-can that went 96mph on a 1000ft track in a heavier car but i would have to ditch the motor bracket. option 2 would be to buy the correct arm length to fir a cut down can and use that.

That is a Sweeet! ride!  I am going to build mine with a similar wheelie bar designe to Marty's also.

Joe the DRS 536 is a Standard width body.  The wide High Dowforce is a DRS 537 and if you see one anywhere, GRAB IT!  they are hard to get right now.

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

thanks, anyone know what a raptor weighs? trying to figure out best option for my limited budget.  i also have to take into consideration that tracks around me only have two 90 amp supplies and some only one 90. i can mount anglewinder but really want to keep it straight on. as car sits in the pics it is 40 grams right now.

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

thanks, no big deal on the pn.  Another good question would be what bodies come with window masks? don't want to make them myself again

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

hey marty, what do you think this car will run with the vr xtreme? weight with the motor should be right at 70 grams. correct me if i'm wrong but i also like the fact that the xtreme arm is 30 turns of 26 which should run good on most track power.

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

Should get no worse than high .5's.  I had a Vr20 in a 60 gram lexan going .640 geared soft to cut down on glue.  It had a lot more in it with a regearing!

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

tip: Joe if you have to do windows and wheel wells again. Use a fine sharpie and trace on outside the lines your pen should drop into the slot just fine. Then when masking hold up to light source and voila you can see where to cut. Once painted you can simply take denatured alcohol to the outside and remove the sharpie marks. The sharpie trick will work with masks as well to help you align.

Re: new aa/fc / n/fc build

ah, and on many sites its a clearly written part of the forum rules not to give links to streaming - its obviously a bit of a grey area legally, so just in case of trouble we try to use PMs between members for this on my Reading forum. If the site wasnt registered in the UK or US you wouldnt have any qualms though...
