I hadn't thought of it before, Arrma doesn't really have any street cars, do they?

When I looked at the Dromida site, pics with body removed, it appeared to be shaft drive.
Red below shows the diffs and shaft cover.

That's a interesting point; as I was not aware there were RCs using a belt.
Thx.
I trust shaft more than belt too because the life (belt can stretch or crack) shafts can't do either but I wouldn't mind either

Yeah Steve some use up to three belts specially the circuit ones onroad,the only advantage is that by running belts they eliminate a couple of ounces from the car to make it a little lighter. Even with them kevlar belts they still break, shaft is more solid too! you can put tons of power and you know is going to hold! So I have the only you can say Arrma onroad Fury!

It depends what the belt is made of. My Honda motorcycle had a chain and the steel would stretch. Later, they started using kevlar belts that never stretched and had great longevity.
Harley Davidson's are belt driven.
Plus, in the world of RC, I want performance and longevity is lower on my priority list.
Neither's wrong, it's just in this great big world of RC, there's something for everyone.

To take an off-road RC and make it on-road, here's what I am envisioning:
  • Shocks, need shorter travel, so more spacers and make them stiff
  • Wheels, get better traction, so go smaller dia so the front wheels stay on the ground and do not pop into the air.
  • Gearing, with smaller dia wheels, gear it up for top end
How'd I do?
What did I get backwards? :)

That's pretty much it and little mod on the front shock tower so the body will drop more and yeah once you lower the chassis it will stop looking for air,and to make it a onroad it needs a foam bumper ahhhaha!

The 1/18th scales are bouncy, hard to line up on anything.

You know, it's a great point @Lor Fury 6s on Arrma not having an on-road RC. Axial is the Hobbico crawler series, Arrma seems to be the basher series and Dromida is the entry level series.
So where's the drift RC? With Dromida being their low end or entry level, this is only going to whet your appetite for more or turn you off.

I'm looking forward to a 4.18MT that can wheelie!

Does your boy help with the maintenance?
Boy across the street cracked my 4.18BX pretty bad, so I had him come over, at parents approval, to R&R his damage.
Kid drives with new respect now. Well, sort of... This is RC after all... :cool:
