Pretty sure the top deck is a Composite Craft clone/design. What I have always wondered is if / how it ties into the rear bulkhead? Most of the flex I think on a TRX-1 chassis occurs at the rear tail to main plate transition.
Hope you're doin' something fun.

Yes you are right! it is a Composite Craft clone. I get the the template on this forum if i remember well!
In fact the top deck is fixed on the front bulkhead and is just in contact of the rear bulkhead, namely the rear shock tower (not directly tied with any screw). It prevent the rear bulkhead to bend in the forward direction but has no improvement about the bend in the backward direction :?
Mine is made of 3mm FRP, we will see it fold up like a lawn chair : test is planned on June !! Anyway i can improve the template with cross-hatching if necessary .. i'll let you know guys.

Another Q for you: How did you fit the lipo under the back-end battery box? Did you screw the box on the chassis with the lipo in it? or is it a low-profile lipo? (doesn't look like it)?

Merci,
Paul

Hey Paul,
i have a 1mm shim under the back-end battery mount 8) 1mm is enough to insert a standard Lipo ... 1 mm can make the difference :lol:

So as my CVDs are cracked and because i wanted something stronger, i decided to try the Integy ones and it is a nearly direct fit with the stok rear hubs ... and a direct fit with the RPM rear hubs :

Same length at first sight :

Image

Just the weight is twice the stock ones ...

Image

Image

... but fits well on the car :

I grab a Nokak ESC 410 HPc on a french forum :

The Motor is a Peak Performance 12x2 (Beast) that has lost its label. So i decided to put a Associated Green sticker on it.

And i was still thinking about the color scheme of the body : Orange is vintage ! one day i saw an article about a Tamiya Astute with a wonderfull body paint job (Jamie Both Works Replica) :

Image

I want to try to get something like this ..

I've seen those and wanted to try them myself. I've seen alot of sales of those integy sliders so glad someone got a set so I didn't have to experiment with it myself 8)

Thanx for the info...off to ebay to order some up to put in a box once they get here :lol:
