Rear Susp. Plate Rally Spacers

I haven't tried this, but it seems simple enough. It doesn't have to be as complicated as in the rendering. Perhaps it could even be done using two of the triangle spacers. Maybe not. It'd probably be easier to just scratch build them.

The angle in the render is extreme but arbitrary. It doesn't need to be that steep to be effective and increase clearance.
Modifying two triangle spacers might be easier afterall.


edit: Sheesh, make up your mind you flighty bastard.

I would say the angled approach is better. Its more likely to slide over stones than adding another traingle plate.

You would have to have the high motor mount. The low CG one would be scraping on the ground! Also what would you do about groung clearance of the diff and all that?

Thanks Mini-Z.

Billiam,
I make the note to use the high motor mount in the rendering.
For the diff clearance, use a 40t spur and a large wheel set.
That should give a little more space. I imagine if there's any rally racing happening, it would be on packed dirt anyway. The Z is too small for much of anything else.

I thought of using my broken stock plate for a angled shim was going to grind it with dremel... I was going to use a 180 mount length plate though.. the angle would help it rotate 180... as long as the angle aint too steep the screw hole area wont realy interfear with ground clearance.

It wuld be better if Kyosho just released a motor pod with the screw holes moved under the motor pod area... and use it as a 180 mount, but not low, or high, sort of inbetween. (isnt the VW this way?)

You told me to contribute towards the rally effort.

Waiting for machined arms from Pimp24s (on AIM)

I forget who he is on the forums, i'm sure he'll show up and remind me. (i'm really bad with names, as you can see)

Once I get the arms, they need to be dremmeled to shape (they'll come like stock arms, with extra metal on the bottom)

This spacer might be the solution though... I need to dremmel up some parts, and right now we're going through midterms :-(
