Thank you!Incredible work on that Lotus! Wow. That's art right there.
What mini motor is that? How does it run?
It was really a two stage build. I'm pretty quick with the brass work once I have my mind made up. The fussy body work always drags on into what seems like dog years
I wish I knew the motor re-order number. The darn things often have no identifying marks. During that period I tested and tinkered with a lot of them. I do know they are a rarely seen 9 ohm poly mag with copper metallic brushes, they run well on 18v, provided they have the drive train and chassis load. I accidentally grenaded an unloaded one during testing, so I had a test subject.
Due to the much lower CG, added width, and mass, the track manners are quite good; but you have to watch the understeer, which is sort of counterintuitive for it's weight and feel. When the time comes to replace the braids, I'll tinker the guide forward for a bit more over steer, and forgiveness.
