KK-P1 proto up and running

A few static shots. It has potential of running on par with all my previous cars.

Putting the servo between the front wheels allow for shorter wheel base.
And with the DasMicro87 electronics - even a Mini ?


Motor pod is interchangeable. Makes it easy to adjust length and motor type.

The orange lip keeps the servo arm from pivoting in horizontal direction. These servos starts to flutter if servoarms lift.

The steel bolts (magnetic) in front of the servo can be used to trim guide centering and centering lift. You can lift the guide-magnet at straits to increase speed and still have good tracion at cornering. ( At least in theory.)

Kim,
You've come up with some interesting ideas. I especially like your idea:
The steel bolts (magnetic) in front of the servo can be used to trim guide centering and centering lift. You can lift the guide-magnet at straits to increase speed and still have good tracion at cornering. ( At least in theory.)
I'm eager to hear how it works in practice.

Testrun timing shows rounds in the high 13 sec area.
Best timing with Magracing original is high 12s.

I have used std slotcar rear axle with 36/8 teeth gear as to M1 30/8 so I have a lower top speed.

Have to test better combinations to find the sweet spot with the std. motor.


M1 & M2 30 8 3.75

KK-P1 36 8 4.5
next test 1 36 9 4
36 10 3.6

38 9 4.22
Test 2 38 10 3.8

40 9 4.44
40 10 4
40 11 3.64
Racing Regards
