Dominate 3S Top Fuel RC Drag Racing. The DragRace Concepts Redline Sidewinder Top Fuel Dragster Kit is the ultimate rail for radio control drag racing. As RC Drag Racers continue to push speeds past the 100 mph mark, more is required from the chassis to accommodate the needs of this ultra competitive class. The Redline comes out of the box packed with a host of precision machined components. The Redline Sidewinder RC Dragster has received some dramatic updates for 2021, and is a true hot rod that offers a variety of updated features to deliver proven performance gains on the drag strip.The most noticeable change is the floating motor mount plate. The motor mount plate is spaced 3mm away from the frame rails to allow the motor to be more centered in the chassis to create a better left/right weight bias in the rear of the car and provide improved overall tracking. A hardcoated T6 aluminum rear axle has been relocated to create increased ground clearance and a more aggressive raked chassis stance. This helps to provide more front end weight bias to keep the front wheels planted, while allowing the battery to be positioned farther back in the chassis to increase rear tire grip, so your top fuel dragster accelerates hard. The updated axle position has been combined with smaller 1/4x3/8 rear axle bearings to increase rear axle RPM while reducing drag on the drivetrain. Four bearings are used to provide additional support to handle the loads created by 2S & 3S LiPo power. So if you are ready to take on the best of the best in prepped track RC drag racing, you need the best equipment.
The Redline Top Fuel Dragster fills that roll with superior engineering and premium level components that will get you off the starting line faster - in a platform that is not a glorified short course truck. A sidewinder chassis has a motor that sits perpendicular to the chassis with a pinion gear on the motor shaft. A spur gear is attached to the back side of the wheel hub, similar to a "pan car" style chassis.Pros: Sidewinder chassis are lighter since they do not have the extra rotating parts of the inline chassis. Additionally, a Sidewinder chassis offers an unlimited amount of gear ratio options allowing you to quickly change the pinion and spur gear as needed to match the diameter of the tire. Cons: Sidewinder cars require more work to balance the chassis. Due to the sideways position of the motor, the left and right rear tire weights are not the same. A scale board is required to balance the rear of the car by spacing out the rear hubs until the weight is balanced left and right. Also, the drivetrain of the Sidewinder chassis creates a "climbing effect" that causes the spur gear to want to climb over the pinion gear.
This causes the front end of the chassis to want to lift more and typically requires lead weight added to the front of the chassis to combat this effect. The battery position in a sidewinder dragster will be much farther forward than an inline dragster. NOTE: Finished kit shown in photos is for illustrative purposes only.
