Mantisworx tri-shock

just a heads up but i am working on a proper tri-shock system for the F1. my goal is to get one designed that will fit under the body and utilize the popular PN mount. so more than likey it will have some sort of cantilever design since thats the only way to get all three shock mounted fore and aft. as i start to come up with ideas i will post some of the CAD work to see what ya think! the shocks are on order and should be here in a few weeks since they are coming from HK.

i have been looking at it for the last hour or so and its going to be a really tight fit to get it under the body especially the Ferrari. it looks like its definately going to have to be a cantilever style and the board will need to be moved forward. i already ahve instructions on the board movement from the old cantilever setup.

well here is the first prototype, mild clearancing necessary on the Mclaren body, no go for the Ferrari without some bodywork (which is not hard to do). a few more dimensions to change. and then i will send out for testing.:

Looks like a cool concept. Trimming the body some isnt a big issue i wouldnt think.

Beautiful! Thats a much easier way then how I was going about it.

I will be doing extensive testing on the new plates this weekend. We had a race last weekend and I was going to test there but didnt have time. Plus the track was green and grip was non exsistent. I'll be on a track I know well this weekend so Ill be able to really get an idea of how they work. They should compliment the tri-shock setup very well.

I really like how this is designed. There really is very little space under these bodies, and if this works the way I think it does, you fit a lot of adjustability in a small package. I look forward to testing it

hopefully the new gernation shocks limit over extension/droop. That was the problem with PINOYBOY and mine tri shock f1s a 2 years ago. great traction but if you had a bad wreck/traction roll the pod could droop and over extend the SAS shock would fall apart. No incidents and they were great.

But I have been running a PN pod with a lower shock mount and atomic disk damper and traction has not been an issue once all the body clearance were solved, multiple side to side issues.
atomic stock r - and fetted 2.4 board - glued tires are required

i did run into that when designing it, it is tricky to find the right amount of movement and spring combo. They are the same shocks used on the reflex MR tri-shock so i dont foresee that being a problem, secondly the shocks are activated by a cantilever so any up and down movement from the pod doesnt effect the trishocks at all, they only move when the pod is twisted! one thing i did find necessary is to drill a vent hole in the shock to prevent unwanted rebound.

well, just got the approval from Matt! it works very well, gets rid of the dreaded tweak and increased traction! so i will open up pre-order in a day or so and begin production next week.
