Can't post on rctech because I'm temporarily banned for having said that people are becoming clueless and lack critical sense as useless knowledge is becoming way too available (I mean, seriously, does one REALLY need an app to calculate a drive ratio?!? :shock: ) and that this leads to doubtful choices when it comes to electing orange-skinned people to critical offices, so I'll say it here:

This is awesome and this SCREAMS Vega!

Congrats, can't wait to see one in the flesh!

I didn't realise there was so much machining involved until I looked at the pics in the other link, impressive :shock:

congrats on the good results. Obviously, you can wheel a car, so this helps ;) She does seem to jump a bit nose high, though, doesn't she?

Thanks yes it goes well so far!

Made another a final last Sunday but the diff shims coned out so the geardiff felt like a spool at times!

Yes if your not careful on the throttle it’ll jump a bit nose high but the jump was massive!

If it has a tendency to jump nose-high, for an otherwise lightweight car with even a front wing mounted, I wonder if the large rear wing could be trimmed down a tad to lessen the downforce back there that might be driving up the nose during "flight"?

Yes good shout, will have a play with the rear wing and see if i can improve it a little in flight

Tbh I think its more getting used to the throttle input with the weight bias being different from the B6.1
