Front Wheel Drive

We have a number of Four Wheel drive chassis.  Click on the links below to see some details on them.

Peugeot 306

Our only front wheel drive car, on the FF02 chassis.  My sons second car bought him for Christmas 1998.  Motor located at the front, directly driving the front wheels.  Drives nice and precise.

Ford F150 Pickup

Specification

An HPI body which is used on the FF02 chassis.  It's not an exact fit with it being a 200mm wide body, a 190mm would fit better.

Nissan Skyline

Specification

Another HPI body on the FF02 chassis.  This is also a 200mm wide body but looks better because the body posts are more aligned and the body is more rigid.

 

HPI Nissan Skyline

With the demise of the Mitsubishi IV body, it was decided to donate the spoiler from it to the Skyline.  A small modification and a quick re-spray and it looks OK.
