    Yup, I am aware of short chain issues. That is the reason the RPM box is tipped back, to increase the chain length as much as possible.
    Looks like the chain will be 38" to 40" long.
    The live axle setup was 50"

    I would be curious what length chains others are running on their RPM boxes , what is the (short) length to where issues start.



    Sinister look?
    While I do think Yoshi's look bad ass and are top notch. I do not see much in common other than 4 wheels, motors,,um they are buggies?

    Other than a few mods, tweeks ,,,This is the same basic single seat design I have been building & racing and developing for years now.
    Shorter nose, taller roll cage, reverse & a bigger motor, are the real changes.
    Thanks though.

    You going to put some kind of radiator guard?

    The angles that those a-arms reach at full droop is steep! How much wheel scrub does that create?

    Yes, there will be a guard to protect the radiator.
    Vented Aluminum, and then a screen behind that.

    see cad pic

    Front angles are pretty much the same we have been running with no issues, maybe slightly steeper.

    Wheel scrub thru full travel is around 6"
    also pretty much the same as we have been running.

    Short front a arms on a car this size probably create more wheel scrub than a large center bulkhead car.

    How much wheel srcub on did you end up with on your new build?

    Looks like with a little force and the bit of play in the suspension you could actually force the top of the spindle and the upper a arm in and make it lock up on itself...
