Default What a drag...

Charger body for the Savage and a handful of HPI parts.

Nice. But I still think that body would look better without the poop scoop on the hood.

It'll most likely be powered by a Novak brushless...if I decide to yank it out of the FM1-E.

Agreed!

I thought about doing something similiar but was thinking about using a maxx diff on the front with drive shafts and attaching a disc brake (from a t maxx possibly) to the output shaft on the diff and using a servo to lock up that disc/diff similiar to line locking so I can light the tires up

Frakk,
This will be something to drive around in the street and make a few runs against the local guys with thier "Nitro is better than electric" cars. ;) Not a dedicated, full-on drag car, but just something fun to goof around with.

The chassis is from the HPI Super RS4
Rear suspension is made of narrowed parts from a HPI RS4 Mini
Front suspension is mostly from the RS4 Sport (and still needs to be narrowed)

The rear suspension will be locked solid and I'll be using a 71 tooth belt from the Pro 3 instead of the standard 54 tooth rear belt. This is so I can move the 2-speed farther forward and clear the tires.

Oh yeah, there's also an electric 2-speed going in.

rindean,

I'm just using the Super RS4 chassis. Didn't want to drop a ton of cash on this so I'm just using what I have available. What I don't have I'm making. ;)

Not sure. I'll have to put the GPS on it when I'm done to find out.

...and no, I won't be taking it off any sweet jumps.

This thing is sweet, in my opinion I would go with a really low turn motor and and a novak h8-28 ESC (I think thats the model name). It can handle anything from 8 to 28 cells, or maybe a tekin 420g2. I have learned that in clod buster drag racing that typically in a short distance the brushed motors spool up much faster then the burshless motors. Just a couple of weeks ago at the Monster Bash in PA, I was watching my friend Brians clod buster called "Dragula" raced a brushless emaxx, and his truck was killing it. He ran a 10 cell matched pack and 7 turn motors on a cyclone trucks is rediculous fast.


If you are going long distances then go brushless but if you are going scale down 1/4 miles go brushed


Mike

BTW the 2 speed sounds SWEET

I've got a 6 single here but don't want to use it in this car. Want it to be driveable.

This isn't intended to be a full-on drag car, just something that will be quick enough to hurt the feelings of the local nitro guys. I used to race RC Drag cars years ago but got out of it. So much money to spend for a 3 second run.

Here's the 2-speed.
