    PostSubject: homebuilt rc nitro funny car   Wed Mar 28, 2012 1:50 am

    Hi. As mentioned I am from South Africa and are in the process of building a nitro funny car. Here is a short description:

    The drivetrain is from a Nanda 1/8 scale truggy as wel as the engine that is a level 28 nitro setup
    Axials where fabricate from scratch, as well as the floorpan.
    The rear wheels are the truggy wheels but inverted, but is going to be replaced by slick and rpm revolver rims.
    The body was made by my self from balsa wood and are in the process of been moulded in fiberglass.
    The wheelie bar is from carbonfibre rods and glued with epoxy.

    This is just inshort what has happend so far. For the future the floorpan is going to be built completly different and I will be going for a belt drive system.

    Hope you like.

    Have a gr8 day
