Wasn't the RPM worlds conversion kit somewhat in the direction of quadra symmetric?

No. Inner hinge pins are not within same distance from centerline and arms doesn't share same lenght front/rear.

I would venture to agree with Chewbacca, in that is was somewhat in the direction. The arms weren't exactly the same length, and the hinge pins didn't align, but it was a decent approximation given the chassis and wheel offsets of the time.

this one Niki made is pretty awesome. If I was a racer, I would be building this to race.

8 days total to Canada? I think that's a personal best for me! Usually they like to tie things up along the way.

Thank You

I looking forward to getting my build going. I want to start racing my rc10 this fall for a indoor carpet season. My goal is to race for fun and not get to caught up in the track talk.

Ok, I'm looking to upgrade my car below with this set. It currently has the Klein arms (which are kinda short) and the B44 cvds + B4 front spindles. I'm guessing the shapeways bits are the best option for actual use?

I.materialise in Belgium is best option at the moment. Price and quality both good.

If you order through me I will include chocolate, waffles and Trappist beer :mrgreen:
Seriously now Shapeways even in the Netherlands is no more an option? This Belgian company would make even better parts I understand?

My Shapeways Netherlands orders has allways been good. I haven't noticed difference in Shapeways NL vs Imaterialise quality. Still there is a price difference...

Yeah, the price difference is rather large. :lol: Is the performance of the i.materialize polyamide similar to the shapeways white nylon?

Niki, are the arms I got from you Shapeways or Imaterialize?

Which ever one they are, the quality is fantastic.
