can you explain the design/build process and what were looking at :p to an untrained eye, looks like an amalgamation of an MR-03 and MA-020. What electronics are being used?

I am using the ecs of a normal Kyosho MA020VE circuit. You can see more about the making of this car here:

A really cool mod!
Tempted to try do the same but I imagine this is hours of labour!!
It would be really interesting to take what you have learned and done and use it to design a chassis to 3D print, I would surely buy one!
Very inspiring work, awesome effort and result!

Very nice concept and execution. Looks good on track as well. The low cg definitely helps the car in the transitions.

I suppose one think holding Kyosho back from doing something similar with a production chassis is the reduction in compatible bodies for the chassis. Plus, the majority of not all bodies would need to be modified for clearance on the body clips.

A production chassis could possibly be a couple millimeters narrower, but it would probably still require body modification and still have similar reduction in body options.
