I haven't worked on the more "RC10-ish" RC28 since about the last time I posted in this thread. Recently I've picked it up again and made some pretty good progress.
I've got a video on YouTube too if anyone's interested.
I still have to design a new rear transmission case, a servo mount, and then body mounts.

I've also been working on an aluminum chassis for the 1:28 scale cars. I made a quick prototype by hand, it's seems pretty feasible and I think looks great. The compoenets I designed for the gold pan version above would pretty much apply to this one, with a few small changes and additions.
