Need opinions for a 10th speed car - 03.26.2014, 12:57 AM

So I was digging thru my selection of old rc project pics and came across (don't worry Harold, I wiped it off!) a pic of my old direct to diff outrunner redcat!!! A real POS, but it had the makings of a good idea.

We lacked escs that could handle the startup loads back then, quark was the best bet but those things were like ticking time bombs.

I have decided to revist this concept with a 10th 4wd on road car. Looking to do 100mph. I know this is not that fast, and I have almost done it before with a conventional setup.

Thinking MMpro, 28 size outrunner, 6s lipo.

What I need help with is a platform that will be easy to put the outrunner in. Basically I need a setup that has an al chassis and std diffs front and rear. So probably something nitro.

I would like it to be cheap (why not) and have good parts availability (nothing discontinued) and above all else be strong. I really do not car if it is heavy as power will not be an issue.

Good idea. That would be really easy to make a chassis for.

Wondering if I can get an 1/8 scale lola body to fit.... I really like the aerodynamics of that body and wante to use another like it. The nitro (200mm) body fir my electric 10th (190mm) and I did not have to cut the wheels out, which greatly helped the stability.

I will investigate the crt.5 for track width etc and see if it will work.
