Hi Thomas,

Your car is nice but the body is.... :oo: surprising :D

Regarding the frame, is it home made ? What are the advantages compared with the original B4 ?

Yepp, i know..a lot of people do not...like the lid :D....the chassi is "home made", used a B4 fro mstart and then dremel, carbonfibre,CA,epoxy and some time :D...Hmm, it have tons of steering, good rear end grip, quick when ya change direction...Hmm, maybe centered weight in to the car?...real easy to handle in the air..

Hey Thomas.P

Cool project !Are you from Sweden ?

Could you point us towards links explaining how to mold CF ? I'm lost among the gazillion techniques and products that can be used. RC boats and planes hobbyists seem to use different resins and fibers, and various molding techniques. What worked for you ? A tutorial would be great.

The body isn't so bad... did you use PET ? Does it prevent the need for a front wing/spoiler ?

Also, what's with the narrow rear tires ?

Edit : I see you used a stock b4 chassis and just two woven CF sidewalls... give us more details !

Thanks !

the batteries weight is maximum pushed to the front end.

Did you tried the car on a slippery track ?

No grip issue ?

@peuge73, Nope, not yet..not sure if i dare to :D..

think i moved the batt app 40mm towards the front. Added GHEA brass in the rear,Speedpassion ESC and a Rx..im not telling i am back to stock weight"place", but little..

the whole car will lift, when i grab it app 3cm towards the front tower from rrear towerbrace.. it would be fun if it works on loose tracks, but no must :)

@acaciapiks thanks for those words m8 :)
