PostSubject: New chasis design for Radline   Fri Aug 29, 2008 9:15 am

Been working on a new aluminum chasis design for my radline I have it only designed on paper. Computers too slow for a design software. Pics (BTW if we had a comp for the most cluttered workbench I would win. king )





Holes have been drilled just need to figure what is teh best method to cut it.

Lower batteries is better, they way the most out of all your electronics. So even if that means throwing them all on the bottom and velcrowing the electronics to the batteries, do it! also the more center line the batteries the better. It will put less force on the suspension and handleing will drastically imprpove.

Radio Shack has single cell battery holders. You could split the batteries and use them like a saddle pack. That would lower the center of gravity, and you could move them around to find the best balance.

Oh, and that didn't look cluttered to me at all...

yes but I have to widen it so much because the motor is low unless this new chasis will just make it able to fit. I'm trying my best to use teh saddle pack like sidewinder said with 2 sets of 2 tripple AAA's to go over the AWD shaft but that motor mount is so stubborn.

Thats just my desk sidewinder thats not including my dressor and book case full of stuff. Rolling Eyes

I have the chasis cut (used a hacksaw some tin snips and lots of grinding and sanding) Just need to bend the lower control arm holders which is the most important part (besides the length) of making this chasis.

I fried my receiver a few days ago and I'm trying to find a cheap one on ebay Stay tuned!

Lowering the batteries will put the weight more towards the bottom making it less likely to flip and handle better than having the batteries upright like before.

Done I can mount the batteries horizontally. Just need to mount them and get a new receiver. Also picked up some aluminum oil filled shocks. Now its all very shiny. I'm thinking about drilling MC201 in the bottom which I think would look very cool and would be fairly easy.

Pretty good work considering its better tha all of my custom chassies.

If you put the batteries over the driveshaft, make them canter lined, and not horizontal to the shaft, but parallel. Wink

Yeah it does look good. One thing for safety, get some tape over the very edges or if you could find some plastic channel that would work. If you don't want to lose the look try sanding it to a rounded shape. I only thought of this because years ago I did an aluminum buggy chassis and ran it into my leg while wearing shorts... it was a heck of a gash.

MTM: Thats what I meant lol sorry for the confusion parrel with the shaft but not upright like a previously had. Razz Thanks I've basically used tin snips and a grinder and some sanding.

Sidewinder:OW! I never thought of that... I had sanded down most of the rough edges so maybe I"ll go over then again. Or tape like you suggested, just not sure what kind of tape would stick that well...probably duct or gorilla tape....

I can't remember what its called but they make this goop that you can dip tools in to make a latex grip on them. You could paint a thin line of it on the edge it would still be safer and you could choose the color. If I remember right it wasn't expensive at all and you could get red, blue, orange and maybe some others... It should be available at a hardware store or a Lowes.

It look really good. Just one question though, how did you solder aluminum? I didn't think you could solder it. Well, unless you used that alumi-loy stuff?

I though you could only tig weld it.
I broke my dad's lipo's tab off and its aluminum so its not really fixiable at the moment.

I'm pretty sure you can braze aluminum too... but I'm not sure what that kind of heat would do to a lipo. So the glue gun worked...cool. I'll have to remember that.

BTW, the aluma loy stuff works great...I used a sample rod on a project a while back. Now that I think of it I should order some more, you never know when you might need it.

Harbor Freight Tools has it off and on... you can find it on ebay sometimes...There is an offical website but they want you to buy a ton of it. The guy on ebay sells it by the stick.
