Propulsion - RC buggy motor
Steering- M motor with rubber auto centering
Powered by rechargeable Lego LiPo battery for weight saving
Uses V2 IR receiver for better buggy motor performance
Full weight with driver - 519 g. (Track tires)
Electrics - 192 g.
Car without electrics and driver (chassis) - 316 g.
Car without electrics driver and wheels - 254 g.
Driver - 14 g.
There is no suspension - there is no need in it here:)
Motor is situated at the back, and uses fast output directly to rear differential (20:28). Front wheels powered directly from rear differential. There is no diff between axles. Car shows better dynamic performance with RWD, but using V2 receiver makes difference between RWD and AWD very small.
Using v2 receiver makes buggy motor more effective:
1. Motor accelerates car better even with awd in comparision with old receiver, that looks slower, especially with AWD.
2. V2 drives model through obstacels much better that v1 and also uphill.
3.new receiver makes possible to drift with more softer and wider tires. Old can drift only with old modelteam tires that hard in comparision with new 14x43, 20x43, 20x56 tires.
Model uses different tires from 43 to 56 size. Model is very fast for its scale. Low weight makes possible to play safely indoor.
Car is with steering at right side, as JDM (japan, thanks for drift) cars: light and powerful.
All wheel drive
Rear wheel drive
Left for drift (on car), middle for track, right for rally ( bigger ground clearance and faster speed)
Drift needs different tires: rear - model team, front - new 14x43 - more grippy for better control at slides
Big wheels for fast speed and better ground clearance
Arches are big enough for different wheels
Indoor RWD with track and drift tires
Outdoor AWD with big 56 rally tires
Outdoor AWD and RWD with different offroad tires.
