RC Return?


Here is a simply project that took way too long...


Lack of motivation is a real problem in RC right now for me. 


and I think it basically comes down to cost / performance.


Even this tamiya body plus Demi Works kit plus a few cans of paint ends up around $250AUD.

That's way too much. As the AUD is so weak. I balk at any RC parts purchase especially from Japan + postage.


While my PC simulator receives 1 hour a day... the RC hobby gets about 1 hour per month.

We shall see if that changes in the future. but at the moment... the VR world is winning.

Kaine's latest MAD mike RX73 looks cool. I just dropped on my chassis for a shot.


Competition bodies always look good too.


 Good ol datto!


2 hours of driving is enough for me these days.

Chassis Choices


Lets have a look at some of the newer things out there. Strating with the Bao la Fantasy II


the front of these seem way more subtle than any other chassis. leverage 


but the most asked about feature is actually the rear.


a twisting torsion bar with 3 shocks.


the "floating rear" gives good traction, but the owner says thats not always the best depending on who you run with... balance is good.


Its good to see these designs up close.


And feel and compare when you are side by side.


this design incorporates the Bao La front end on the YD2.


 with all components very thin, Steering angle is amazing.


Everything is very adjustable,


Now the YD2 is also just a good thing.


and when you up spec everything, they get even better still.


Nothing wrong with the belcrank front servo and steering..


simple is good.


The last one here is the Usukani PDS.


A carbon aluminium hybrid.


it also shows some unique things.


Steering ackerman adjust is very very easy.


Broz was quite busy on saturday


take a look at the RX7s on their page.


Body comp style.
