- RC Driving Style
First of all I'd like to say I'm fairly new to rc crawling, although many years ago I had a clodbuster that I took half the shocks off of and played around on some rocks with it. Anyway I am wanting to build a crawler after I finish piecing together the t-maxx \ smartech nitro truck I'm working on and I was thinking about the articulation in a crawler and was wondering if something like this would work. Nevermind the suspension links/design thats just to give a better idea of whats going on. This design should allow for the chassis itself to add to the articulation without adversly affecting steering. Stops could be added easily to help control the amount of articulation. body mounts would be off of either the front or rear half only, since if it was mounted to both parts it wouldnt flex. This is also set up for a MOA. Depending on weight balance the electronics could be housed in either half as the wires connecting them are flexible and could pass through the center. Not 100% battery location, but then again I just wanted a visual for the concept in my head and some preliminary feedback from some people more experienced in this field than I am. So here goes, check out the picture, sorry its not CAD but I figure paint will do.
