Yep – only problem is PRICE (at least here in Oz, anyway).
I build/modify my Char-Gs (and other RC stuff) on a small (3’x2′) whiteboard because it’s easy to clean, has a wooden frame to keep things from falling off and the high-contrast surface makes spotting little parts really easy to do (Shard – are you reading this? :smiley2:)
Of course, a 3′ (90cm) run is NOWHERE near long enough to really give a Char-G a run. But, you can see just how well the standard tires grip to the shiny surface and how well the car slides out on the hight turns.
If only I could find 8’x8′ whiteboards at a reasonable price :smiley3:
Once again, try the hardware store :smiley2:. Look in the panelling section. You can usually get 4×8 panels made of masonite with a shiny painted surface that looks suspiciously like a whiteboard. My dad has actually made several whiteboards out of this stuff. I’d guess a price around $20 USD.
