Express Mini Road Runner 2
I love those full carbon and aluminium chassis Tamiya sell. Unfortunately, they all look pretty much the same, and get updated more than I can afford to buy them. So I could buy one that's instantly out of date, or I could buy one cheaper from another manufacturer. I bought this one because it's based on a mini chassis. I used to drive the mini in Tamiya races, but had a bad experience: the M01 chassis was almost impossible to finetune, and the frustration that gave me actually caused me to quit Tamiya for a while.
Now, with this chassis, things are different. This chassis can be tuned upto a certain extend, and is a lot more stable and professional then the plastic cars Tamiya makes. Obviously ,I won't be able to run it in Tamiya races - but I'll run it on raining nights.
I used my old mini-body for this car (for now).
The chassis. I haven't actually run this because I'm short a decent speedo, and I have yet to find a screw that will fit in the servo I equipped: a Futaba S9402. The idea is to seriously run this car, I have wheels and tyres and such at the ready...
The suspension. Compared to a Tamiya mini chassis, this is heaven...
The interesting part about the spur: the Tamiya spurs (TA04, TA05, TRF chassis, ...) will fit here.
One of the many correlations with proper 1:10th cars - the layout of the rear drivetrain. The shock towers are not what they could be, I will design other ones myself - when I need them...
