Yes, I considered the 'pinch roller' method but decided to do it this way as it would look more elegant. That's really the only reason!

That's cool.

I've been meaning to convert my Kyosho Spada to electric and had never thought of using an outrunner, was just looking at 360 size brushless, might have to give the outrunner a go!

Nice wide car like that would be made for it. Interesting, I never realised they were 1/12 or that anyone made a 1/12 nitro on-road car. Never seen one before. Bet it is tough finding places to run it!

I haven't run it in years, we just used to run them on our 10th scale outdoor track in their own class

Long time since the last update!
I have gone through 7 iterations of the MDU, each having weaknesses and vulnerabilities that showed up in crashes etc. This final version has taken everything I have thrown at it and it runs strong at the sharp end of the field at our club. Very happy with the performance now and I won't be developing this car any further, although I'll definitely use this high efficiency concept in future project cars.

yeay!
Can't wait to see your next outrunner project.
I have scaler/crawlers outfiitted with outrunners now: a 780KV and 1100KV, and they are really performant low-cost resolutions that make your car that little bit special.
