Mammuth Rewarron – Giant 1/3 Scale RC Truck Project

 

Mammuth Rewarron 1/3 Scale R/C Truck – 8-12 Update

 

The guys over at Mammuth Works sent in some links and information to LSN the other day about their 1/3 scale RC truck project. This was the first time I had ever heard of this truck project and I was happy to learn more. I browsed around their site, checked out pictures and watched the videos. This is one cool project and we hope to keep our readers informed of its progress as they move forward. They were nice enough to give us an updates on the project which I have posted below. Get ready to be blow away.

Project Update 10-14-12:

New model options posted below:

The specifications are:

–          the same running gear / frame / suspension as the premium model, made from             ………..steel, stainless steel, no alloy components

–          50cc, 4 stroke engine with the max. speed: 40-50km/h

–          Torxis i00800 servos (two piece), 57kgcm torque, 750ms / 90 degree speed

–          central brake, which brakes only the rear wheels through the driveshaft

–          no custom electronics, only the receiver

–          fiberglass chassis, available in some designs

 

Suggested reatail price: 5.500 USD, but you can buy only through resellers, so resellers wanted! :)

 

Because of that, we changed the Premium models specifications, for 15.000USD you receive the full modell:

– fiberglass / carbon fiber body

– alloy components

– tuned engine (110-125ccm)

– on-board controller

– two sided telemetry

– telemetry center PC which stores the data (and uploads to a cloud if required)

– drive by device (iOS, Android), you can adjust the car setup on a tablet, laptop or an ….smartphone

– follow the sensors values: fuel level, voltage, G-forces, compass, GPS, RPM, speed, etc.

 

and Premium+ model:

–          you can create your own Rewarron, custom materials, colors, accessories, chassis, wheels, anything you want!

–          target price: 30.000 USD, but it needs final specification based on your requirements, and then we will give an exact bid

Project Update – 8-2012:

 

Recently, we put together the car as much as possible. Structurally, the car is almost finished. We need to test several custom made components in the next couple of weeks (brakes, differential, steering, suspension, control system). The car is absolutely custom built from scratch. We used only quad wheels and engine (110ccm, 4 stroke).
In September we try to make a short commercial about it and try to spread it around the net. The car then will be available for pre-order. There will be no series production, only unique orders, where the customer can make some changes on his car (color, accessories like lamps, spare wheels, etc.
The car has a completly new control system and “brain”. You can adjust the brake balance, ABS, traction control, adaptive steering sensitivity. You’ll be able to monitor the car performance from web browser/tablet/smart phone (brake pressure, brake temperature, engine temperature, RPM, speed, GPS coordinates, accelerometer, etc.)
The car could also be driven by any kind of tablet/ smart phone from it’s application.

Please note, that this car is only the very first prototype, we need lots of testing! The final version of the car will available in the end of this year (final frame and suspension with full telemetry)

We just finished the chassis decals and painting and brought it out for a small photoshoot. I attach some images from this event, but we would like to ask you, that this post should be visible on 20th august. Because we organized a small event on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Project-Mammuth-The-second/164130126967997), where the car will be showcased for the public. We will upload a gallery and a new video at that time as well.

Every important factory video will be available here: http://www.youtube.com/user/MammuthWorks

  1. The only thing I like about it is the tires… I hope it’s not chain driven….

    Keep up the good work though!
