Anyone ever think of designing a body shell around a RC car design? It would be a good way to test shape applications. Even going as far as making a minature frame setup just like you would have inside a real velo.

I'm talking exact sizes and everything. Can you imagine how fast those things would go lol? Theyd be like missles. I'd love to see a video with a guy riding his velo, with an exact miniature velo same paint scheme riding right next to him.

Ha, that would be pretty amusing. A 1/4 size 3 wheel velo would be cool.

Just saw a post on ecomodder.com Aerodynamics forum from a guy asking for advice on building an RC LSR car aiming for 200 mph.

Totally useless for testing aerodynamics. Totally useful for having fun!

Probably would need some weight (ballast) to keep it in contact with the paved surface.
