Micro Funny Car (Dragster) Update

A little update on the micro funny car project!  I originally mentioned it being 1/24 scale, well that is not the case anymore.  The scale I will be working with will be 1/32.  Yes smaller and more of a challenge as far as packing all the electronics under the small body.  Hopefully I can manage that without any issues.  Next little update: The wheel's.  I have gotten the front and rear wheel's that will be used on this project in. They are rubber o-ring aluminum front's and tacky foam rear's.  I still have to polish up the front's, that can wait as they will be used for mock up purposes.


 I would like to give a huge thank you to Artie (SRGN of for the help and much needed support of this project.  I could say that I would not have gotten this far with this project, without him.  The "donations" as you could say from Artie has really helped get the ball rolling on this project.  Once again Artie, thank's a lot for the help and support of the Micro Funny Car (Dragster) project.  I will be sure to give as much credit as I can when it come's to this project coming together.  Hopefully you will be impressed with how this project take's shape and is done.

Will update at a later time with more picture's and image's on this project.  Check back at a later time and hopefully by then, I will have more progress for you!

1/24 RC Funny Car?

I've been having another project idea running through my head lately.  Usually when idea's run through my head I have to find or create something to put it down on paper.  Most the time I do not jump right onto the idea or the plan's.  But figured I would share what I have had on my mind lately.  Maybe someday or someday soon (maybe as I wait on part's from the secrete project?) I will start on this.  Who know's, guess time will tell and if you read my blog then the blog will show, haha.  So only the flat layout of the design.  Also, with this idea plan I would be running a Mamba micro brushless motor, slot car gearing as their gears use grub screws and would make mounting and swapping out a piece of cake.  Wheel's are a toss up, thinking maybe slot car wheels. Need to see how much I can fit under a small shell and also would be attached to the 3mm axle with a grub screw.  For the front would have a straight bar with the ends drilled which would house a 1/24 Losi micro steering knuckle and a spring above it while running a long screw through it all to allow for some suspension in the front.

Finally, if you decide to create something like this.  Please come up with your own design.  It would be cool to have a funny car class in a micro scale, would love to see what other's come up with.  But do the work and research on your own as I do and always do.  I am always willing to help, just ask and I will help as much as I can.

A little tease pic

Figured I would post a little teaser picture of the 2013 project.  Of course you probably can not tell what it could be, but that's the point isnt it.  Haha  So the wait still continue's as of now.  I may release the project photos whenever I finish the last design of which I am working on now.  Just keep changing idea's and doing this here and there and have not set my mind to one design that I really like just yet.  But expect to see the project photo's in the near future.  So stick around and check back later.

Also, if you have not "liked" the LosiMicroInfo FaceBook page yet, please do so.  The site has come along with some great information and still working on adding a bunch more.  Also always looking for feedback and idea's as to what should be on the site.

What to come for 2013!?

What would you like to see for the year of 2013?  A new Losi micro, upgrade part's, kit's, etc?  Would love to hear what you all think or your opinion's.

I know that I will have something new coming in 2013!   As far as my item being available to the public, we will have to wait and see.  If it were to happen and had a big enough fan base, I would offer a limited quantity release.  Just to allow some of you to get your hands on something "new" and have a piece of something that would eventually become rare.  Would be the same route I took with my micro buggy.  As I have been working on getting my new unseen (but by a couple) project rolling, I have made an attempt to reach out and get a couple of the item's (Calling it "item" to keep as a secret.  We all hate secretes, so I will keep you hating the one's I am telling. Haha) made, produced, done, or whatever you would like to call it.  As soon as I get some of these "item's" finished and back in my hand's, you just may get a sneak peak.  Just be sure to check back to my blog as I will be keeping it up with this project.  So stay tuned for more to come.

Enough of my talk, let's hear some of your thought's on new product's in the new year!  Wouldn't a wide track kit for the 1/24 model's be great?  How about a 1/24 4wd micro 8ight?  Let's hear what you have running through your head and hopefully we get spoiled with the goodies in 2013!
