Sick! Can you adjust the height to optimum race level, or is it just an up and down thing? And how fast is it considering the extra weight, but you do have two cells, but they are going to two seperate boards. Oh yeah, what about charging duties? And what's the meaning of life? That ought to keep you busy for a while!

Can you explain what you've done?

Congrats BTW. You're the first person I've seen pull it off. You really should get some kind of reward. If you have the video on your PC, I'm sure someone here will have a place for you to upload it. I'd really love to see it.

ok the car is still fast its got a 2.2 motor running off of the laymans tri cell mod with another board running parrelel to the original board straight from the battery terminals . first i modified the knuckles (check the pic) then the lift works off of a 1.0 motor.
I have one controller working the regular car functions and another working the suspension lift.
I am now working on a steering coil lift for the rear end and intergrting the two controlers into one. thanks for the compliments.
you guys will love the video where can i up load it?
and takumi , how would you like me to show the car bouncing with still photos? who's dumb now?

Ok, try uploading the images here;

Maximum 15 minutes total.

Hey could you explain how it works? I'm kinda confused since you only revealed what you did. My brain frying up trying to figure the stuff up.

BTW: you could take a small clip of it going up and down and turn it into an animated GIF file, which is a picture.

looks to me what he did was use another motor to power a custom suspension arm up or down, depending on whether he wants it to be raised or lowered. i.e. when the arm is down, the knucles are forced down, making it raised, and vice versa.

right midget , the second motor pulls a string across the top of the second pcb down a hole in the front cover back up and pulls that custom arm down. more later

Nice org. mod. This could be done with a single PCB from a Wild Char-G. Or a modded booster PCB to enable the extra channel. Just an observation.
