Default Another venture.

Been doing alot of net browsing lately and the rc drag cars have caught my eye. So im going to step out into a new venture and take it up a notch. Rc sand dragsters. I have talked to some of the lhs owners and racers who run dirt and they say there would be a good interest on thier off weekends. We have 40 acres here on the farm so this spring we will start construction on a 66 foot sand strip, and hopefully start having comps in late april, as long as it doesnt keep me from missing a crawling comp . Really looking forward to this. I have quite a few ideas for topfuel, funny car and 4WD jeep tube frames. First of the year I will start getting set up with some of the specialty parts manufacturers and distributers and put this into motion. The new site rcsanddragsters.com will be up mid january hopefully.

You just gave me an idea for that Tamiya WW body. Didn't want to make a crawler because it really isn't scale enough. It will make a nice dragger though.

Glad I could help. That will be $5 for sparking the idea. Gotta pay for this new venture somehow. My son is almost out of college money with the tubewerks venture.

And I thought RC Crawling was a small niche...

Good luck, and it sounds awesome.

I can't believe how this RC dragster thing is taking off so much. That is all I hear about lately.

What type of motor are you going with? Motors wound for large burst currents would kick ***. The sky is the limit with the motor power if it is in bursts.

All the prototypes will be direct drive. Planning on running 7 to 10 turn motors in them with servo avtivated micro switches instead of speed controls. Running a cobalt or neo would be great but the people around here would go into sticker shock at the price. But a 7 turn motor on a direct drive rear end should interesting on a 66 foot run.
