Anyone one built a Mardave based one?

Anyone want to?

Get an existing robin reliant chassis and flip it all round.
Sounds like a horrible thing to race though lol

It should handle a lot better than a Reliant (that's not difficult). Have a look at videos of VSCC or VMCC racing to see what I mean. I'll have a look at building a chassis but can't do bodies. It's going to have to wait until my 1/8 stock car is sorted though.

steering is no issue (existing steering setup) but it is getting the power to the rear wheel that may cause the headache.

Although a modded rear pod may work, but the most accurate way would be to have the motor mounted longways, there must be something available somewhere to do this (its like a pinion but the teeth are on the face side, not the edge), or build something so the motor powers a spur gear that in turn powers the sput on the axle.

the reliant is ok, but is RWD and FWS, the morgan is the opposite
