That's strange. Why limit to 17.5 but then spend a fortune on trying to go fast?

Just been looking at this on redrc. Extra side gear and I like the chassis stiffener.

I was wondering if a belt could be used instead of an extra side gear . A bit like the old rc10 hyperdrive.

Orlowski certainly managed to make all the others look a little slow in the DHI A-final!

Attention to detail, notice the blue tack to balance the near side front wheel in the image above.
Adding a third gear mean's another shaft, two bearing, lock nut and extra alloy to carry the assemble. But is it getting a little to complex and would this work outside.
The car sure did look to be quick and very stable, even the 4 wd was fast and made the new Serpent look slow, and that should be one of the quickest with the history of its designer and driver.

Are you referring to the new serpent sdx4? Is that with the current k2 or a new 4wd buggy from Schumacher?

There's also a front roll bar on the car. It's not connected to the wishbones but all of the other parts are there 🤔

I've been running a front ARB on my Cougar mash-up for two seasons - exactly the same installation. Requires a very different set-up to work, but I like it. I'd love to know how they are getting on with it.

Here's mine:

I do not think there is a new Schumacher 4wd was referring to the new Serpent shaft drive.
He was also using the original SV narrow front wish bone that give less understeer and a fast response and with the wheel base short.

So know we know, Schumacher has just released the KD (an SV2 update) and the KC (the KF2 replacement) is available for pre order.

There is a picture of the KC above, bet it is the same as the car used at the DHI meeting, the only thing I do not like is the lack of side rails to help stop dirt and water getting into the electrics
