New VDS2

I just ordered another VDS2 body so I'll be ready for when the lap counter comes in. Of course, I'll probably take 2-3 weeks to paint/detail it.

I gotta put my carbon fiber bumper on first. I also got a new set of Atomic bearings, an alloy VDS2 nose mount, and a new diff gear to replace my wore out and loud gear everyone makes fun of.

I'd like to paint it green and orange like the Mazda 787B LMP racer, but that might be too complicated and I'll just F it up. Maybe a nice metallic black cherry.

I got my stuff in. Now I just gotta figure out what to do with the body. The chassis is back to VDS2 running gear, plus new bearings, gears, and rear tires. I just gotta come up with a paint scheme. I might do that tomorrow.

Just wait for the real Autoscale to come out in March.

OMG! Yeah I'll just wait for that ASC. I guess I'll just find a nice color paint and throw some Mazda stickers on it.

I got a nice metallic blue and I'll toss some decals on it. It's a racer anyways.

Done and ready to race. I've got my CORE transponder taped inside, too.



I also made a carbon fiber stiffener for the front. I used some CF stock I had laying around and cut a slot in it and the body clip mount, and glued it on the underside of the body. It's pretty much the same thing as the one I made for the silver VDS2, but it's mounted on the inside:

After racing it, the carbon front piece needed to be filed down just a little bit where the tires hit it on hard cornering, but other than that it did really well. I wrecked it a lot until I got my tires semi-sorted out and the front stiffener plate did a really good job. I'm hoping it'll keep the front solid for many months to come.
