TTR Twin Force Chassis ** Updated **

Post by yuckydog » Fri Jul 15, 2005 4:58 am

Hey all, I sent Darren an e-mail asking whatever happened to this project but thought I'd post here to see if anyone else had any info?

Just picked up a Twin Force and wouldn't mind a better chassis than the stock one.

The carbon fiber should make it lighter and it looks to have many more mounting options for the shocks and such...

Here's the reply I got from Brad at TTR:
The Twin Force chassis is basically ready for release minus the build-up instructions. Due to other projects that got in the way it just never got finished. Hopefully we will be able to finish it up and make it available soon.

Ok Here's an update:
Thunder Tech is proud to finally announce the coming of the long awaited Twin Force chassis.
The "EnForcer" chassis will be available around mid September.
Features of the EnForcer, will be carbon fiber chassis plates with adjustable wheelbases. (G-10 fiberglass shown in preview pics)
Three wheelbase options are available for usage: Stock (12 3/4") Mid (13 1/2") and Long (15 1/4")
Extended wheelbase usage will require the Kyosho long axle swing shaft # MA024 or equivalent.
(Not sold or provided by Thunder Tech)
Multiple shock mount locations for different ride heights and shock leverage changes.
Two side mount battery tray locations low and high (about 3/4" difference)
Eliminator steering kit, for slop free steering.
Options that will be available are Traction bars / ladder bar braces, Ripper style body mounts and a low CG single battery pack mount for competition racers using 540 motors.
The Eliminator steering kit will also be available separately for those who want 4-wheel steering or want to use it on a Mad Force RTR. The kit could be used on a Mad Force / Armor kit if larger rim wheels like the Twin Force, Maxx trucks or equivalent, are used in conjunction with changing to Twin Force steering arms.
Projected price for the EnForcer kit will be $150.00
Eliminator Steering kit by itself will be $30.00

YES! :P I've just "reserved" the money I need in my PayPal account. Hopefully, nothing comes along on eBay to really tempt me until mid-September.

Quick question:

The long swingshaft will be used in place of the center driveshafts on the long wheelbase configuration? You don't think the swingshafts are too weak for this? It seems that the center drive shafts are a bit thicker than the swingshafts used in the axles...

The stock center axles are 5mm thick at the ends but have a section in the center thats 4.8mm thick. The long axle shafts are 4.8mm the whole length.
I've used the long swings on my Mad Force in a long wheelbase settup and the axles hold up fine as long as you are using braces on the link bars to keep them from over torqueing and bending the axles.
I've seen some guys run Revo axles in the center as well.
We just provided the option for the long wheelbase in the chassis but are not planning to offer a drive shaft replacement.

Sounds good. Now I only have to wait about 3-4 more weeks. :shock:

You have written: :oops:
"Options that will be available are Traction bars / ladder bar braces, Ripper style body mounts and a low CG single battery pack mount for competition racers using 540 motors."

On you sites, I can't find these options and so I can't buy them (but only the chassis)... as I want to buy all together, in which way do I have to do? :wink:

Thanks in advance! :P
