Chinchilla Redbird Sport Coupe . Now exploding off the Chinchilla motors assembly line! With 4 XL motors this can and will move about at a reasonable speed! Aw yeah!!! .
The front, which retains the classic style of the original Redbird sedan. And so Moctober continues.
Some hood vents, so I can pretend I have heating problems. I don't.
The back is much different, and so are the inner workings. More on that later, though. For now I'll focus your attention on the revamped bumper, the new fastback window and the big, unnecessary spoiler.
Right. Moving on then, the inner workings. Having forgotten why I put in Ricky Comisso's U-joint I tried a Lego brand one. And it broke. That means that now I've broken over 3 U-joints in less than a month. Anyhow, The new design has a simple 1:1 gearing with plenty of torque to move the car instantly, and a new 4-link rear suspension provides enough durability to move the car all the way across my house. The old car couldn't, because with only 1 battery it'd putter out and stop every 4 feet. Also, I've taped up the rear wheels to provide a tiny bit of skidding for fun purposes. The new IR kit means I've room for twice the batteries (and eventually a transmission). All this technical jargon means that the new Redbird hits a top speed of 1.3 miles an hour! (Walking pace)
All that text put into a neat chart. Much nicer. On an unrelated note, would someone kindly explain how to upload video into html? I have a few things I'd like to put on this page, since an RC is kind of boring unless its zipping about.
I'll be here pretended I can do burnouts, you feel free to move along. Perhaps go view a Ferrari 255 GTO or vote for a bird project.
The Vids are up! Not embeded here, but rather on Flickr because I'm rubbish with html. Still, I'm pleased with the accomplishment. (I made a Flickr account, I'm so tech savvy -_-)
