Since the TQ10 came before the RC10 Graphite, wouldn't that make the Graphite the "Bizzaro" car.

It would, but most associated chassis since then tend to have some curves ;)

You think photos are cool? You should see them in person! I can't help thinking how cool each piece is as it comes off the printer :)

I have been in a sort of conundrum over this project, namely the the transmission. I don't know any transmission internals that will fit in the space of the transmission case and retain a differential. I have been considering using a series of pinions to emulate the internals of the 6 gear transmission, there would be no real diff but it could have a slipper so it would LOOK like the 6 gear.

I just don't know. I just know it can't really be lots of super custom parts if I want this car to be easily makeable by other people.

This all looks amazing and count me in for getting/printing one of these!

Just a suggestion - use the gears out of the Mini B/Mini T/Mini T 2.0 transmission if they will fit. The dogbones and outdrives might work/fit too. Don't get too caught up in being perfect. The Mini JRX2, as you know, has a few differences including the transmission. Simplify and use existing parts when/where you can...

That was the first thing I tried but it literally doesn't fit in any way that the trans would look even close to original. I even pulled apart my mini t 1.0 and it's diff is even bigger. I measured the stealth and that diff is far too big for that as well.. I need to find a 1/18 diff that is smaller od than the mini b 2.0 by quite a bit...

Thunder Tiger made a 1:18 truck - the ZT2 and ZK2 - I wonder if that would work - that said, I wonder if one could be found!

How bout the 1/16 traxxas vehicles center trans internals ?
They are still current so parts availability wouldn’t be an issue.

Do the 1/16 traxxas vehicles have a differential available for the center trans? If not the pinion setup is probably just as viable.

Ok I see they do have a center diff available, I just ordered a cheap trans from ebay we will see. I am still open to other options as well :)

Also check Amazon for these 1/28 diffs, might be able to make em work with a spur cut to fit against the ring gear.

It's time to stand up to the bully. Support the companies that support the industry, not the ones that tear it down. Say no to Traxxas

Converting a bevel drive differential to the other style is a possibility but a bit further than I am trying to go modifying wise. I want to make it as easy as possible to do this for other people if possible.

Well the mini revo center trans is a no go, OD is only 1mm smaller from 20 to 19... still too big. I might look into the micro cars or just make a trans case that doesnt look right... or make a trans without a diff whee :)
