DRC Engineering - Warrior SK Chassis

New SK conversion kit now in production, See attached pic's

Info from instruction booklet:

The Warrior has built-in centerline indicators in the chassis. You will see three small notches; the first in the front of the chassis plate, the second at the rear of the chassis plate, and a third at the rear of the lower pod plate. This helps you determine your wheel offsets properly. Placing a straight edge along these holes also determines if you have rear steer. Another way to determine rear steer amount is by measures the gap between the chassis plate and the rear pod plate with a caliper.

What separates the Warrior from other SK’s is the monoball rear suspension. This is not another t-plate car.

With a t-plate car, it can be difficult to adjust rear steer, sometimes with only a few “pre-set” increments of adjustment available. The Warrior’s adjustable rear steer bar provides infinite adjustments. Raising the front of the rear steer bar with shims can provide roll steer if desired.

With most t-plate cars, you adjust wedge by the two tweak screws that touch the chassis plate at the front pivot ball. The Warrior’s wedge adjustment is easily made by screwing the side spring rod in and out of the 4-40 rod end (counter-clockwise reduces LR weight, clockwise increases LR weight). An easy way to remember which way to go is to tighten the rod to tighten the chassis, loosen the rod to loosen the chassis. Pretty simple, huh? You can make this adjustment in seconds with the body on the car. A quarter turn will make a noticeable difference. Hint: use an old pinion gear instead of the outer 1/8” collar to act as a thumbscrew for easy adjustments, and run a 4-40 tap in the plastic rod ends to make the adjustment rod easier to turn.

Conversion kit (no front end, rear bulkheads, rear axle assy) $135.00 + shipping

TP I left you an E Mail.

The DRC Warrior runs real good out of the box. It has a good balance on the Track. If anyone need any help just ask. We will all give you our 2cents ,See you at the Track.

The prototype version of this car was reviewed by S.K.O.R. It was approved based on completeting several revisions. Every one of those revisons was made. The only deviation I made was the new battery braces. I have not sent the car to S.K.O.R. after the revisions. That being said, I don't think many tracks run structly under S.K.O.R. rules. Some tracks base their rules off of S.K.O.R., but it's the tracks' ultimate decision as to what is legal.

This car is legal to run at all N.E.O.T. events.
This car is legal at RC Madness, Enfield CT.
I will be contacting Turn 4 RC about the car.
I have not talked to any other tracks yet.

Where do you intend to run SK?

I think he got caught "with his pants down" in the woods. Better to sacrifice sock than get stuff under your fingernails.
