To fix the weird tire angles on pics, stay back from the car and zoom in to it. It'll help to limit that effect.

What did I do? Now tracking down TRX-1 parts.
I will rebuild the ones I regret selling.
Nice lil’ parts gather. Your building a B4 trans for this chassis ?
Oh and btw the pic of your WOIN build is great. Came out looking like a real show stopper. Nicely done 8)
Thanks! Wish I still had that car. Yes B4 trans with Shapeways bulkhead.

Those Chassis are pre-preg not done yet. Though I don’t know a whole lot about the process.

I just noticed what your next sentence says. Ok so then yes since it’s pre-preg then the carbon is still pliable. Now that makes sense why they look all wonky in the photo on the shelves :D Keep the updates coming 8)
Who do you race for ?
Me……. I race for me.
That’s impossible, I was told you need a sponsor to race.
Hey Cru ! Go balls out 8)

Nice big pile of pieces. Looks like your not building an original stealth trans for it, correct ?

There's a B4/T4 motor guard in there. That has me curious.

Yes B4 Transmission with Shapeways NIX63231 RC10 rear bulkhead.

When I started gathering parts, the RC10 Transmission parts were hard to find, in a few months it will not be too difficult between Fan RC and JC Racing.
