    After speaking with Rangga over at Team Flazh, we were joking around about a couple things and the point of my 3 Leos (white/black/yellow at the time) came up, with Rangga mentioning how it looked like I got the Power Rangers colour theme going. So I figured, why not, I do love the shell style.

    So I figured I'd make a thread dedicated to the Leo Rangers (still need Pink, Red, Green).
    They're not finished yet so will update this post as I go.

    Leo Black = Box Stock set up, nothing special other than being Black Special.
    Leo White = Alternative suspension, independent sliding dampers all around, small wheels.
    Leo Yellow = Alternative suspension, rigid stays, large wheels.
    Leo Blue = Tuned Highspeed, experimental dynamic drive train (situation dependent, AWD/4WD/RWD) (Still WIP)
    Leo Pink = Common suspension, (rest to be decided, still WIP)
    Leo Red = (Still to decide, not started)
    Leo Green = (Still to decide, not started)

    So far there are Leo Rangers Black, White, Blue and Yellow. Still need to make a pink, red and green (these were all the rangers in the UK show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).

    Leo Ranger Blue! It's nothing special, just a tuned class highspeed build (no cutting/trimming, tuned motor only). I wanted to give each of the Leo Rangers a different setup, this one focuses on the idea of using one way wheels with smaller front tyres/larger rear tyres in order to shift power from AWD/4WD to RWD once up to top speed. This in theory should dynamically change the car between AWD when accelerating and when speed is varying (back to back corners) whilst shifting all power to RWD once car is at top speed and reducing a little of the overall load on the motor.

    Of course this would be better done on a chassis such as S2 or some such, but as I said before, I wanted each of the leos to be unique.
