Color0,

Can you/ Did tou buy your PCB board seperatly, or do I have to go buy an Iwaver to get one?

Does the Iwaver PCB improve speed?

Was it easy to solder?
Thanks.

EDIT: Btw, I ******* love that car, nice job! Where'd you get that bodY? I can't find one anywhere!

I think it gives you better control, and you get to use a better controler to boot. It may also be better for speed. I am sure the Iwaver body helps alot to lighten the load on top of it. I can bet it is more than just looking good.

Only if someone can do delrin gears for the gen 1 Xmods we would be all set, yea right. Just not enough people messing with them anymore, everyone is into the evos now.

more torque, more throttle steps, more steering steps.

not that i need the extra torque, with li-ions and hard tires, but... it's a fun car to drive.

edit: al9spike, i got the iwaver as an xmas gift and decided i didn't like drifting an RM IW01. so it went into this project.

the iwaver shell is about 5g lighter (body perception scale...), but less top-heavy than an xmod shell. it's also very flexible, i can't forsee breaking anything off it anytime soon. i'm not that bad of a driver either, so i can probably keep off the walls well enough to preserve this body.

machining a new set of gears for the gen 1 wouldn't be too hard design wise, i simply have to find the right size gears for the bevel and the diff, plug them into my design program and make a .dwg file out of it. heck, i could probably design a better ball diff as well. but the cost of that's going to be so astronomically high i wouldn't start until i had at least 50 people interested.

an update: i made a lip kit and splitter for the car. despite the obvious imperfections (i'm no aznballa), i think the bodykit looks rather decent.













and a retouched photo of the chassis, just for kicks.




i don't know when i can drop down to the LHS again, but when i do i will be making a crapload of decals... some to go on this GSR Time Attack 22B STi.
