THE WOLF IS HERE!!!

^
My dream chassis has arrived .. rc art white wolf, my plans for this chassis are simple High Counter Steer goodness, i'll be aiming for 3.0+.


^
I'm gonna try and keep this build simple .. well thats the plan anyways ... the gears i've chosen to use are 43-9-22-32 this will give me just a little bit over 3.0 CS.


^
43t pulley will have to be custom fitted to the front one-way.


 ^
Custom 9t pulley will help under drive the front.



 ^
Now some issues with having to fit a larger pulley in the front is the pulley rubbing up against the front shock tower, bottom chassis plate cut-out and front suspension block, so in order to avoid this i've had to space the shock tower forward 3-4mm and space up the front bulkhead and motor mounting 0.5mm ... this should help reduce the amount of rubbing on any parts of the chassis, it'll also avoid me from having to shave any parts of the chassis ... i'll also look into using smaller spacers under the suspension blocks or possibly removing them just to add a little bit more clearance to the pulley.

Its hard to see in this picture but the pulley comes real close to chassis plate cut-out hopefully i won't have to shave down the carbon fibre to avoid chassis plate damage and yes it is used but i still don't like the idea of hurting her... haha.
