Hey Eirk glad you like it. i'll post the small add as soon as i find it .I must say I have looked at all your projects on here and you build some cool cars. I'm wanting to put losi five spoke wheels on the back of this project any thoughts :roll: I'll have to post some of my other projects that I've done when i get a chance :)

:oops:
you make me bloss

take a look at these wheels: I think you need the wide offset and they will fit straight on a 12mm hex.

Converting to losi wheels would be rather troublesome because of the mixture of metric and imperial stuff.
Do newer losi wheels still have a large offset, or have they made the same evolution to narrow offset? A narrow offset wheel would rub your swing arms at the inside of the wheel

Here's the small add I wonder why I never herd of anyone racing these . It's strange how no one knows much about this kit. Anyway I think I'm going to stay with the yokomo wheels and swing shafts in the back for know. All i need to do is get my electronics on board and I'll be ready to test this baby 8) :D don't worry Erik I'll get some video of the test :mrgreen: .

Something seems wrong with the attachment for me: I can not see it full-size?

ah, much better
I must admit I never even heard of the product nor brand. Lots of people are sticking with the conventional and without sponsoring some good drivers a small company can go down quickly.
Pretty groovy you didn't content with copying the design to an ultima but actually took it to the later triumph.
Really looking forward to whatmore you fabricated.

Well, Tony hasn't logged in for about 4 years so it's about time for an update :mrgreen:

Just "found" one and can't wait to get it cleaned up!

A few more pics now that it has been received. I threw front shocks and rear wheels on it just to get a better idea of stance

Im thinking of doing up a custom 4wd buggy with a similar rear suspension. Wondering if there is some advantage to the swept back A arm design. It looks like it functions just like a traditional A arm, but the hinge is forward, so the force acting upon it might have a bit more leverage?
