Not much done. Actually, more done than first appears below, but haven't drawn in many new parts. Been too busy with the other hobby, but here's a shot for reference. I think this is what I'm going to try and do for the battery positions, though the Right side pack may be a tight fit, thanks to the mounts for the rear gearbox. The servo location is still up in the air until I can settle on steering mechanism, side stiffeners, and gearbox to side braces. The chassis plate, when trying to use the plastic rocky front kick-up, is tricky because the kick-up and rear gearbox are not in the same plane.

Trying to figure out the steering and front brace; This area is going to be a VERY tight fit! Other parts are mostly detailed, though I'm going to have to do a few iterations to match to the body, Some are roughed in.

No. It's not been abandoned; just on and off when I hit roadblocks or change my mind. Was doing a lot of dirt bike racing up until a couple of years ago, then had a brief stint in model rockets, then got into some work on my old truck, then Covid. The last burst of work was early this year so I could use it as an example for a 3D Printing demo at a science festival. I got the rear suspension up and a dummy link put in to hold the steering centered. Still a long way to go, though. The next big hurdle will be getting a steering system tucked in under the front chain sprocket while keeping the gains in the significantly improved bump steer.

Unfortunately, along with a lot of life shifts due to covid, my laptop with my CAD system went down, so I've got to get that going again.

To complicate matters further, I decided to make it a double-build and fix up the Rocky I had originally bought for the Gold Universals, years ago. Unfortunately, I missed the boat on the Gold Team Associated 0.71 stroke shocks they offered until just recently, so I've been trying to come up with an alternative. Wondering if I can use these on the back >https://www.associatedelectrics.com/teamassociated/parts/details/21534-ASC21534-shock_body_set/

Also got my fingers crossed that some CV joints actually make it here from Japan.

Here's how the cars currently look.

Also compiled a database of Kyosho CV joints in the process, if anyone would find it useful.
