Two years in development, the Austrian made Carbon One is now in production. This 1/24th scale chassis is an all new development but uses existing Kyosho parts and various tuning parts such as those made by Atomic, 3Racing, PN Racing etc. The car utilizes a 4 AAA cell layout, with the batteries recessed into the chassis for super low centre of gravity while the steering has been designed to accept the Futaba S3114 servo with a specially developed servo saver system helping to protect it. The chassis has a 98mm wheelbase and was designed specifically for use with the VDS type shell.

Found this on another forum. Another pan-car chassis competitor!

What I really like about this one it's that you can use the batts, individually, without making them a pack.
Here (http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=hp&hl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.carbon-one.at%2F&sl=de&tl=en) it's the translation of their web site.

Is it 1:24 or 1:28? The diff and other stuff are from Z's...

???

By the way, just loooove the design and the CG.

According to their site: " The carbon-ONE is certainly the fastest and most sophisticated 1/28er it currently exists. "...it has to be cause I've seen them using the regular Pan Bodies.

And yes, this concept it's using the Z parts, so parts will be easily available. Also, if you look on the second page, pricelist, I guess you can buy just the main chasiss and the carbon parts and then you can use your favourite Z parts, which everyone here already have.

I think this is that Austrian kid that was at the PNWC? Chassis looks nice, but wasn't faster than an MR-02. Same old story...

The lack of edit on this forum is teh suck.

I wanted to add: "if this is the same car from the PNWC..."

Well, that's a bit disappointing that the performance isn't amazing. On top of that, I believe the price is listed in euros, making this chassis quite expensive compared to a MRCG or Sinister!

Yah for some reason, I still can't edit my posts on some forums. No worries.

And secondly, the thing didn't drive bad at all. It's just that the MR-02 (and especially the AWD) have raised the bar so high. I've spent my entire Mini-Z career since buying the first MR-01 Skyline from Cristian's dad trying to make or find something that's significantly faster. 10 years later, and the big K is still on top... :confused::D

I would think that with some TLC this one could become equivalent to an MR02, since it's laid out identically. I like the molded front end and tierod system, but it doesn't bring anything new to the table performance-wise. I wonder how much it weighs?

That's challenging for people who try to make new platforms and in the same time it makes people like me, the regular club racer, to stick with Kyosho and to spend money wisely on parts that make these litlle cars to perform as close as yours, the world top drivers.
Even in Sweden, if you look on their race statistics, you can still see MR02 on top, along with P28. :) which for me, translates that MR02 can still be competitive with more expensive chasiss.
