Fuji 1972 Quarter Scale

Hi, I was looking through few Japanese R/C magazines and came across
this article, so I would like to share this with you.
This article is from "RC Sports" magazine, August 2006 Vol. 9.
One of the image shows how the rider pivots the body and controls the handle bar.
I have seen one on Ebay last month without the rider. It looks pretty clean.

Hi Folks,
I think some of you might be interested in this. I found this patented movable rider drawing on the web.

Good find! Good thread to revitalise! I wonder where the inventor is now?

Hi jb.

I was looking for hub centre steering, and came across the radio control toys.
The early Kyosho Eleck Rider is included the the search results. The steering looked different from the production kit.

I've tried to find the inventor, but only one result looks close enough - a professor. Maybe, someone will make one.

Try Tony Foales' website. Click on 'Articles' then 'Steering for the future'. Details of the Difazio, Mead + Tompkinson and Bimota Tesi hub centre steering systems.

Thanks jb. I bought two of his books. I found few hub centre steering patents
from the same website. One is very detailed. It shows the inner & outside hubs, also the working of the suspensions. I think it's one the Honda's patents.

I found the whole sets of Ner-a-Car!
