I got some dimensions for the esc so That's in there roughly with half a bracket so I will finally post full drawings. The carbon pieces are being supplied and cut by fibre-lyte.co.uk, the Eggbeater is being machined from p20 tool steel by Andrew Kenworthy of ALK engineering and then I'm looking into nitride coating it. and the majority of the chassis and mounts will be printed at shapeways in the Netherlands.
There's two switches, one for main power and a second for the weapon so I can switch off the brushless controller and run it in the warm up events.
I go away this Saturday for a snowboarding trip so hopefully by the time I'm back everything will be on my doorstep and I can get some pictures of the build.

I'm yet to name it so any suggestions would be Eggcellant :lol:

Might be done for the AWS in reading hopefully, if the Disk/drum thing is machined and hardened in time.

Thats impressive.

Might need to upgrade the Black and Decker workmate to build something like that though :lol:
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left
