|T3-01 Chassis: Designed for Fun
The T3-01 is a three-wheeled chassis comprised of two main sections (front and rear) connected by a center link; the front section houses R/C equipment and the power source, while the rear holds the integrated gearbox and motor. Positioned in the back of the front section, the servo applies motion to the rear section, which in turn makes the front lean. Support arms are moved by the servo, and help the model to self-right in the event that it turns onto its side. At the front, a telescopic fork has a built-in coil spring, while the rear features a cam-slide setup with cams on the rotating pitch axis: sliding left and right, they actuate the built-in coil spring to cushion the rear. A planetary differential gear is integrated into the rear axle.
