I've said it over there, and I'll say it over here. This car is absolutely badass. Craps has raised the ante on the world's fastest car challenge. This thing is made out of industrial materials that are already designed to go over 100 mph carrying a driver. I can't imagine what it'll do carrying only servos and such.

It'll be so funny to see that thing next to a 10th scaler. I can just see a guy sitting there sayin well I have lipo this and a 550 size brushless and blah blah blah. Craps just grinnin, knowing in the face of 125cc's of monster they don't have a chance.

I also love the look. Its mini indy car. Almost has that cute toys r us look, but I bet jaws drop when he hits the gas. Geared down its probably one heck of a basher.

I really hope we see this on the cover of a magazine. I think its that good.

Finally someone gets it. Use/build a strong frame that is made to go fast, put in a motor that has over 20 horses. Make it as wide and long as possible to fit in the dimension requirements for stability. And most of all, don't use rc tires, they will balloon. VERY nice craps. Could we see some more pics?

that thing is insane, purpose build machine... does it have rear suspension? i think it should other wise the rear will be very bouncy at high speed which you intend to reach. Also the gearing has to be spot on to get maximum speed. But damn that thing is awesome!!!!!

Maybe if I am successful at setting the new record I am sure there will be a magazine article or 2 on it. First I have to set the record and there maybe something even more radical out there than my car yet to be revealed???

Besides something strange could happen preventing me from setting it at Fontana, CA and if it does happen, I am prepared to come back home and set here at a latter date, but I rather do it there at that event.

I will sell you this car if you are serious or I will be glad to take orders for brand new ones custom built. Price will vary depending on what options are taken. E-mail serious inquiries only to crapsrc@netzero.com

You guys go price brand new go-karts, price the Parilla motor, pipe, clutch, servos (big ones) (bigger than 1/4 scale), My-Chron4 gauge, now add for everything being custom fabricated from the chassis to the pipe and the servo mounts along with working all the bugs out for everything that involves a bunch of hours and broken parts. You might be close to what it cost.

So, is this thing actually competitive on the track? I'm not saying it isnt (it looks like you'd have to slow it down on purpose to drive), just that it would be wicked if it could go round corners lol, not like some of the other cars in the challenge.

Actually with a gearing change along with a some stagger added to get it around the corners, it would be very very fast on a 1/4, 1/5th and even a 1/2 mile car track. It could take the bumps better than the smaller cars and could outrun any go-kart with a rider. With a 3 quart fuel tank, I can put on at least a 10 minute demonstration of pure RC speed that would get people excited about RC in a new way.

This car has alot of promotional potential to promote RC to the rest of the world at car racing and sporting events. There is already something in the works on that too!

The few non-RC people that have seen it run have already expressed interest in going to watch and even getting involved in RC as a hobby! Just need some sponsorship help from some in the RC industry to put the plan in action.

Craps
07-16-2006, 05:15 AM
150mph? what are you doing following it in a ferrari? doesn't it go out of range in seconds?

About 5 to 7 seconds of full throttle and around 5 seconds to deaccelerate with the run over with. A ferrari would be good, but I think riding in a helicopter chasing it on the Salt Flats in UT would yeild over 200 mph with a gearing change and alot of running room. The fixed radio position visual/radio range limits alot of the potential, but it is a good rule and makes it a true RC competition.

could you just name an average price for this beast?

ducati777
07-16-2006, 10:03 PM
Heheh this kart falls under if you have to ask, you can't afford it. But lets do some math, a good kart is about 2-3k, throw in fab and electronics and I bet crap's would build you one for about 3 to 4k.

Good work craps. I think 200 might be ... ambitious? With motorcycles its not a problem of horsepower, but their length. A bike is too small to close the hole in the air it just punched in it. Thus bikes have great quarter mile times, but relatively low top speeds. My bike, a SV1000S, does the quarter in 10.8, faster than a McLaren F1, however the F1 has a top speed of over 200 mph, and my bike tops out at about 150.

Craps
07-16-2006, 10:34 PM
The bare Parilla Sudan motor alone with no carbs, carb mounting plate, no header or even pipe cost $1,800 alone. Brand new mass produced Karts as a roller are around $2,200 with no motor mount plate, no guages, no clutch, pipe hanger, fuel line and throttle cable. Now keep in mind everything was custom built setting up jigs by a professional Kart manufacturer to my specs welding all the extra brackets and rails for servos, guages, body mounts and fuel tank. Now add a jack shaft that is belt driven to special built clutch with a chain drive, add a custom built pipe for the motor and the guages to record rpm and cylinder head temperture, add the larger than 1/4 scale servos to hold it in a straightline, add the 8000 mah 8.4 volt li-po reciever pack and few special extras that I might post here at a latter date.

At least double the estimates with more added and you might be close. Remember this thing is a CUSTOM BUILT RC CAR and not a go kart!

you can borrow the turbo charged gsxr-1000 thats in my garage, tops out at 210mph.


but if you think about it, radios are good for 3000 feet if its like spektrum, so you really don't need a car to follow it and if you do use it, any car that can break 100mph will do cause you wont fall behind 3000 feet

This is a go cart not an rc car. it might be in the size limit but I dont think that it is really fair. It's considered a go cart that is how it was bought not an rc car. If this wins which I think it will I will be dissapointed and the RC speed record will be tainted IMO. We should have stricter or realistic guidelines. Jeez if that is the case I can strap a rocket to a go cart with a reciever and servos and win. Just my two cents. But that is one bad *** car.

Sorry Dan but did you see a seat and steering wheel on it, but you will find a radio reciever, servos and I will be operating it by radio in my hand that more than qualifies it to be RADIO CONTROLLED!!!!!! It fits the rules and guidelines for the contest and still has to be driven by radio from a fixed position at very high speeds without wadding it up that is a very important part of the competition.

My car is custom built RADIO CONTROLLED CAR and not a go-kart converted! I have yet to see a go-kart with the motor in the middle of it where the driver would sit.

balang_479
07-27-2006, 12:09 PM
Its his first post so that explains it, but even so, if its in the guide lines and is not barking any rules then why shoudl it not compete, i think anybody could make something of the sort, im sure overall it cost just a tad more than a high performance rc car. ANd it dont how you can say it looks like a Go-Kart, its looks home made all the way..

Big Dan
07-27-2006, 12:46 PM
I never said it should not compete. Those are the guidelines set. I am just saying that yes that is an rc car in the LOOSE sense. So if i have enough money to build a rocket on wheels with a radio and reciever that should be considered for the contest. Like I said in my opinion, I would not consider that and RC car in the Traditional sense. Hey I would love to see that thing fly down the track doing over 150 miles an hour. Also I am stating in the traditional form that is not an RC car. IMO that is. Although I think that what he did is awesome. Doesn't that have go cart tires and a go cart frame cut down to be in spec? So that is why I am saying it is a go cart. The engine is a go cart engine isn't it? Don't get me wrong more power to him if he wins. But when I think of an RC car That is not what I picture. I picture you going to an RC hobby store and what they have on the shelf or behind the counter. I don't think I have ever saw one of those there. I love how because that was my first post I get blasted for it. By the way I would not mind getting one of those for myself, just don't have a million dollars lying around.

Keep in mind, he still did compliment Craps on his car tho. Maybe he hasnt been exposed to some of the more extreme rc's such as th 1/5 scales by Traxxas and HPI, or the 1/4 scale cars.
Big Dan, there have been many cars/trucks built with hand-built and extreme chassis out there, and many 1/4 scale monster trucks with briggs & stratton motors on them, which makes them even closer to a go-kart ( basic ones, not shifter or racing karts), yet companies see the need in people to have these extreme cars and trucks , so larger servos and beefier components are made for those applications. Just because Craps used that engine, doesnt really make it a go-kart, its just another example of the extrme levels this hobby can go to. I dont mean to offend you in any way, so please dont take it that way.

Big Dan
07-27-2006, 01:28 PM
No offense taken. I was just stating my opinion. For the record craps has an awesome car. (just jeolous I don't own it :D ) But it looks more like a go cart than an RC car. if you go to toys r us and pick up on of the toy go carts it looks just like that but it has a seat in it. And I have seen the 1/5 scale cars with a weed whacker motor in them they have races over by me once a month. But those actually look like RC cars not a go cart. That's all I am saying. Just my two cents. By the way I apoligize if I have offended anybody with my comments, as I must have for being downed for posting on this forum. FYI I have been into RC's for over 15 years now and that creation of craps is one of the baddest vehicles I have ever seen some serious props to Craps for designing it.

I think we all understand your "it ain't an R/C car" thing... but hey... if somebody brings a truck, if they're within the rules, they'll be allowed to compete, too!

BTW, they have to be wheel-driven, not thrust powered... so, no rocket-driven vehicles will be going down the track.

Awww poor big dan. Hang in there buddy. See there's two ways to look at it, yea you can go 100 mph with traditional gear, but not much faster. RC tires fall apart, gears melt, and its tough to come up with enough power. RC Nitro built a 100 mph car, and the current "record" is a traditional car.

I agree its not made of tradional rc car parts. You'll probably never see that powerplant in a production chasis. But I think thats what I like about it so much. While you think its loosely an rc car, I see that as creative.

But at the end of the day keep lurking, and keep posting. The forums can be rough on people, but they're also a wealth of information, and you get to see cars like this. See if you can find Thorbob's creations, that guy hand builds some wicked machines. I think there was a post called I have a monster woody, where a guy built an almost exact replica of a T-maxx entirely out of wood.

Thats what keeps me coming back to the forums. All the crazy projects, ideas, opinions, and yea occasionally people get rude. Its the internet, we can be rude without any risk of actual confrontation. Everyone is a tough guy online, you'll see that a lot.

Craps, although you built your car to do top speed. I was wondering how well it handled corners? Considering the design looks more like a circuit racer than a top speed car it might even do well going around an oval :eek: . That might be the only way to get a glimpse at it's full potential. Lake of suspension and differential might be it's downfall.

I don't blame Craps for coming up with what could be the fastest RC car in the world, after all, the rules left this type of concept wide-open. Trust me, I know the guy and he's always going in a direction that other people aren't ready for just yet and he literally started a non-conventional class of racing in our area that has caught on big time.

Good luck Tim. :)

Two things, Ducatti, maybe get off your knees for a minute, your total devotion to Craps is creepy.

Craps, can the gloating and secrecy, no one will ever give you a sponsor if you fast talk like you do here. How much did it cost, and what does it cost to order one from you? You keep slithering around the question, trying to make yourself look even better every time you change your font.

Nice car though.

Wow! What a rude post!

Ducatti is just excited about my car because he posting doing the same thing along time ago that is very similar to what I did even though my plans were in place before he posted about it.

Mr Snick
You need to tone it down and not be so rude with your post. As far as cost goes....none of your business! :mad:

Oh i KNOW that thing would smoke my Z, not even gonna question that!!!!!

Personally, i dont care if Craps spent $100,000.00 on his car, or $6.00. What is the obssiesion with how much it cost??? Point blank, if you need to ask, then you cant afford it! As for conventional, heck ya its not, and i love it.........how many cookie-cutter cars or trucks, or stereos, or bikes, or real cars, or anything come along and we just look , nod, and move on?
Did anyone just look at a Viper or McLaren and say, " oh look, a car, no different than my taurus". Not so much. The people went nuts over something different, and excited to see what it can do. My late brother always said, " people are creatures of habit-they dont like or want change, until you give them a reason to". The reason here, building a fast car requires changing your thought process.
Not just craps, but ANYONE who brings something totally new to the table should be given credit to thinking outside the box. If Craps came into here with a TC3 with a BL, people would simply go, " oh nice. good luck or something".
As for the money, OK, lets do this:
CRAPS< I HAVE $5000.00, IS IT ENOGUH TO BUY/BUILD A CAR!
i already know the answer, but if you want one that bad, ask the man in p.m. if you can call him, and discuss purchasing one.

Give 'em he!! on raceday Craps!

Considering the design looks more like a circuit racer than a top speed car it might even do well going around an oval :eek:
Craps, after you get back home from CA, why not approach the owner of a local 1:1 dirt oval short track and ask if he'd allow you to demo it at some point between heats on a hot Friday night? Last time I went to a dirt oval race, they had a 3 lap little kids kart race.

I think the race fans would eat it up.

I can't say much now, but something is in the works that maybe bigger. ;)

Keep me informed, dude... I may have to hit the road for that if it's in NC, SC, or GA.

And don't forget about the short track dirt oval thing... wouldn't you just love to see the looks on those people's faces when that thing is tearing around the track?

Wait a minute... you'd never see their faces... you'd have your eyes glued to the rocket.

Well, I'm sure you'd enjoy the uproarious applause after you brought her back to a stop.
:)
Wish I could join you and the others this weekend... it's just too steep for the state of the old wallet these days.

And believe me, if I lived near the track, I wouldn't be one of those who only showed up "if it's not too hot." I'd be there no matter what the temp... dang... why stay away just because it's hot when all the racers put so much time and effort into their cars?????

I know how to stay alive in the heat... I used to race 1/12th onroad in sunny central SC from March to November.
