This must be a racer's car. It has QteQ Diff parts on it. :P

i don't believe i've seen a front alu bulkhead before...
can anybody confirm if 246 makes them?

The part you speak of is made by Eagle Racing. This car seems to be a mix of parts from Kyosho, Eagle, QteQ and R246.

thanks ct... anybody get to try them out yet?
one thing though... that is one expensive mix of parts... :D

What are the correct ofset for the wheels for that body?
if mounted on a normal Mr02? +2 front? +3 rear??

2010.10.21, 03:20 PM
Its about 1mm wider than the Murcielago on each side... So I would say a 1N/3W would be ideal. You may be able to fit a 2N, but it might be close...

I've seen the body mounted on an autoscale chassis with the F430 GT rims (+1 offset all round). I guess that it was mounted on a LM chassis as it's supposed to be run.

So yes, I would use +1N +3W on a normal diff.

I'm not too surprised. I dropped $600+ on an MR-03 chassis set and full PN alloy parts and spares. That was without the body also. First and last MR-03 I'll purchase I'm sure and I've yet to make many changes except moving from the tri damper to a regular disk damper.

Too much pretty and too much bling.

Does anyone know what wheels those are?

2011.01.18, 01:03 AM
my guess is that they are made by route 246 (http://www.rc-r246.com/plannning/product/R246-1502.html)...

part no R246-1502

I don't see how that thing is 900$... at the same time, it might just be seeing how every lugnut set and bearing is $50.

The price includes 7,000 yen worth of labor charges.

They started with a JSCC cup chassis, and ended up using nothing from it except the bearings. Not even the wheel nuts. Tossed the friction damper, all diff parts except the plates (a bit disappointed that they didn't use the 1,000 R246 lapped plates) and spur, tossed the oil damper, and elected to use a different set of carbon t bars. Complete waste of probably 8,000 yen. The gold terminals don't even matter because the use Li Fe.

If it were a racing machine it wouldn't have lights, that's another 5,000 yen.

Tie rod price of 2,352 yen is for the set of 5.

8 SP8M4 FETS are absolutely not needed for LiFe and that R246 motor. That motor is spec'd for a normal ASF board. They didn't even remove the 3.5 amp polyswitch. Waste of 6,300 yen

So there's definitely a couple hundred worth of unnecessary stuff there, but I suppose for an exercise in making the most expensive thing they could they did a good job.

lol... wished they ''tossed'' all the unused stuff our way... :D

thanks for your insight... :D
