The Traxxas has a very short wheelbase and a chassis layout which places some of the heaviest components high above the centerline, creating a high center of gravity. Together these attributes make for some very sketchy handling dynamics as well as significant compromises in the body designs I can create.

The Peugeot is being designed to build up as a series of individual modules, joining together into a full representation of the car's chassis and systems. This may be a bit ambitious for a paper model, but we'll see how it goes...

XJR11 updates

The 908 is full of complex shapes, so design efforts have shifted to simplifying the structures wherever possible. This mostly involves looking around for opportunities to reduce the number of spline segments without sacrificing the overall form.

XJR11 updates

Re-releasing the Jaguar kits has offered an opportunity to update the models and expanded the possible build variations. They've required some new parts, and a chunk of work re-mapping those parts across the sheets.

As part of the continued evolution work for the Traxxas 1/16 chassis, I have been looking into ways to stretch the wheelbase for stability and center-of-gravity purposes as well as to give me a platform to improve on the odd proportions defining my body-shell designs.

The minimal body concept was partially created as a quick test for the Cricut Explore, the newest tool in my design and prototyping studio.

After building a new front wing mount I was inspired to make the rXA design a bit more radical. Perhaps a driverless, drone-bot race vehicle. Bodywork is purely about moving through the air...

Working on an idea for long 'tusks' on the nose of the rXA, I realized I might be able do away with the entire standard Traxxas front bumper and mounting assembly and replace it with a bracket and beam setup (similar to the latest LMP wing mount).

The ultra-minimal car concept is something I've been working on for a while. Functionally, this body design deals mostly with reducing the drag of exposed chassis components, directing cooling for the ESC and motor, and ensuring good airflow through the front and rear wings. I also want it to be easy and quick to fabricate, so the shell needs a minimum of panels and parts; no enclosed volumes, no roof, fenders, etc.

Following all the detailed research, technical drawings, and the master CAD model development comes the finishing work re-creating and applying all the graphics for the various versions of the cars to the kit's flattened parts.
