That would have worked if it had the lengt of front inner hinge pin. If the length is correct I would have to fabricate new arms as they are allready drilled for std hinge pins. The "quick fix" is ball links.
I don't know if the Dubro plastic links are strong enough though and come to think of it.. hmmm.... these Dubro 3365 might not work as you want a upwards/inward travle of the rear wheels when compressing the suspension.
Looking at the Kanda/Ryuz the inner hinge of the arm is shorter then the outer.
I think it's back to the drawing board for my part.

Finally I found the progress. Saw the last update on Instagram a while ago. Have been waiting to see how it would turned out. How is it going?

It's tucked in a drawer....
I guess I need to dust it off and solve rear end suspension issues :lol:

Fabricated the front shock tower (Probably not the final version) Decided to move it rearward so it could bolt on the bulkhead.
On the pic it’s 1.32” rear shocks, but will have to source 1.02” as these are way too long!!

You could use a taller shock tower and play with inner spacers for the right suspension travel?

Yeah, that might be the way to go in the end if nothing else.
I just wanted to have as low fron end as possible. The body will sit behind the bulkhead and I think it will look even more weird with tall shocks and towers.

Shocks done. Just need to add oil 😀
At the front I’m going for 1.02 shocks and 0.71 at the rear with Du-Bro ball ends to clear the trailing arms.
All shocks have RPM spring cups for clearance and no internal limiters. Oil will initially be 35wt.

My brain is hurting...

Need your help on steering set up (only mockup at the moment).

I think shorty Lipo is the only option..

With trailing arms you get different movement depending where the inner ball joints is located on the chassis.
There will be a top deck with spacers on rear arm mounts.
Any input on this geometry is greatly appreciated.

Sorry for messy pic.

If it were mine...assuming it would clear, I would swap bellcranks leaving the "input" side on the right. Servo can then mount alongside the pack like the original prototype RC10.

That’s a good idea. Thank you.
With the B4 servo link it will clear. I will have to widen the openings in the pan for maximum steering throw, but that was something I knew from the beginning.
