Lucky bastard. :mrgreen:

So does that one have two kick ups or just the one for a bumper?

Our guess was what 10 and 20?

A single kick-up like the other Bullet chassis you got would make things a lot easier. Also the flat chassis is easier to mount a Stealth trans on which someone is definitely going to want to do.

yeah, that's kinda dumb. make one kick, and make the bumper out of kydex or lexan with the other angle bent into it. same result, way less work.

I meant keep the bumper kick-up and lose the 7 degree kick-up for the arm mounts. It's looks like A-Main made the Bullets that way at one point so it's still "authentic".

Problem is still the 7* kick up material is custom so $$$ :(

I do think 7* material would be cool to have tho, lots of 4wd cars could use it

7 degrees isn't that much. could maybe print custom caster shims.

Brian has some 10 degree on shapeways and I ordered a set. Now thinking about it they are reversed. Doh

Got most of it together and happy. Hard to get those deltas on the car before they leak all over lol. I need to see if i can find a few rebuilds or at least "o-rings" or whatever they call em. I even had the servo they recommended, a 131sh. Still need rear tires, rear wheels, crp axles, and a speed control.

3° front camber, 7° rear, front toe out, rear toe in per the setup guide 8)

Since I have an original now, and the tribute, I decided "why not build a runner" haha. Instead of trying to locate or have made a kickup chassis, I had Brian make up some reverse caster wedges to give me a little fake kickup. I'll probably shorten the nose a bit too. Jsou made up the servo mount brackets, much easier than making them out of Delrin or nylon. This is as far as I have got, I'll hopefully have a chance to make it a roller soon. One day it will run :mrgreen:

Hurry up and produce a kit! I was going to run a Ten4 and ARP repro at 2016 VONATS but this one has my name all over it! I love these weird, goofy variations.




Seriously, I need a kit!

I wonder if they would make you run in 4wd :mrgreen:
Kits won't be a problem, but I'd like to know it works first! If you and limestang want early kits I can work on a couple but you'll have to help work out any kinks!
