Question team azarasi mid44 parts

browsing the web for b44 parts and related subject matters i found the team azarashi mid44. it seemed like a bit of a flop and they really didn't need to produce it as they werent suited for lipo use. however, i'm building a nitro b44 and i would be able to use the shorter front top plate to locate the center bulkhead more towards the front of the car. i cant translate their page for some reason and i followed their link to here. does anyone know where i can get the top plates here in america? heres the kit-->http://team-azarashi.ocnk.net/product-list/5

If you are able to wait a couple of weeks I will be having the 20mm shorter deck in stock. Not Azarashi but similar with two different designs depending on how much flex it produces.

not sure if they'll load. and i have more recent higher res. pics if you want. after the design is finalised, i'm going to use a new chassis. not wanting to mess up a 40.00 chassis. i used the b44 steering and front center cv drive. going to use NTC3 single speed. adapted the ae .15 engine for non-pull start. b44 center bulkhead and tamiya 31mm dogbone to couple slipper shaft to output shaft in the rear. (no slipper) b44 diff cases front and rear.

(Edit: these are recent, and i have elecs. installed now, just need more hardware and new shocks. aslo i chose to make a combo dogbone/CV center drive that is not done in the pictures.)

Just got the CF shipped and the drawings are being made next week hopefully. The CAD specialist has to do what he does best first. Then some testing obviously. Online store, no. Not at the moment. This is a newly started project for us. But when testing and evaluation is done there will be.
And there will be a corresponding rear plate of course.

No thread so far. I want this to be perfect and no ordinary conversion for the B44 so it will be all presented when its done and tested buy some very skilled drivers I know. The topdecks in it self is no big deal. They can be done rather quickly if you want some beefier specs on them for you cool project. But still, say 3-4 weeks.

For future communication. Use my email or Pm.
Best of luck on your project.

also. from what i read about the azarashi kit, the weight was too far forward when tested with lipo. adding weight behind battery was tried. 6oz. (170g) in one instance. i think those guys were running 5-cell NiMh when they designed it.

It was produced when nimh were still being used, unfortunately once everyone started to run lipos the advantages were not so clear.
There are still a couple of people running them though.
Axeman on here runs one with lipo and loves it. I know he got the mid44 shock towers reproduced by Fibrelyte so may have got the top decks done too.
