Each shock has a special adjusting screw for for ride height/tweak setup.

Our roll bar's system is simple and straightforward and has very short joint members.
If you will keep our roll bars flat there will be no tweak due to roll bars.
In addition it is possible to use thin shims under sway bar holders for very precise tweak adjusting.

poop,
We are remaking some parts now so they will match the overall high level of reliability of the entire car better.

Thats what you told me (beginning of feb). Are spare parts going to be available with the 1st order? I would prefer some basics (lower arms, knuckles/uprights, ball cups/ends etc..) to ensure brain fade doesn't send me home early.

Theres a option in the kit to be able to use either motor positions, all this will be standard in the one kit.

AdminD,
What do you mean under "centered motor"?

Motor's orientation only or smth else?

Two orientations of motor are possible in one kit now ( kid TT-01, thanks).

It takes several minutes to change this.

That is the bomb! I hope this kit does well. It is certainly the most innovative kit anyone has seen in a while.

Oleg... If you don't mind me asking... How long is it between the pivot points in the lower arms perpendicular to the chassis? (In other words if this car used hinge pins in the same position as the current pivots, what would the gap be between the inner and outer lower arm hinge pins?

Yeah that is excatly it... Interesting that the effective lower arm length is not different to the average TC, however the hinging points are considerably further towards the center of the chassis (opposite of all the latest chassis on the market). Is there a particular reason for this? Kinda seems like a way to have a chassis that grips like a narrow track but perhaps with the stability of a wide track? Best of both worlds?

Dragonfire,
It is the compromise taking into account many factors.
There are additional holes on the lower deck for shorter optional lower arms.

I have had a few TC's that use quite long arms, like the Atlas YM-34si and the Barracuda (arms mounted the same as Awesomatix with less than 5mm gap between the arms!). I have found them to be very quick everywhere with excellent side bite on even low grip tracks. So my preference is the longer the better unless lap times say otherwise.

Since its late Jan now, is there an official release date yet?
