Default What an update to the SV2 (SV3?) might have looked like with a laydown gearbox

When I restarted racing again around March 2016 I found my newly acquired SV2 not that competitive on high grip EOS carpet


So what started out as a project to create & fit a laydown gearbox to a SV2, through evolution, escalated to what eventually became quite a different car to a SV2.

It's pretty much my favorite features from a variety of RC cars since returning in 2016, a mixture of KF and KD parts with some inspiration from a YZ2


Thank you to Cobra Racing for the chassis manufacturing and Fybre-Lyte for the carbon fibre manufacturing. Also Penguin Body Shells for the under tray vac-forming.

That's an awesome bit of engineering mate

I have little doubt it goes better than a KC or a KD!

Cool stuff; it's nice to see there are still custom projects and builds! Have you got action pics or vids by any chance?

Thank you, and thanks for your and Ken's hard work, and for taking it on.

The chassis is a work of art I think .

Before I received it, I was just going to run it without an undertray as I only race indoors. But after receiving it, viewing the quality of the work, the beautiful finished article, there was no way I could let it get cut up racing without an undertray. Thank you
