Hi Ivan, firstly well done on ETS.

I would just like to hear your thoughts on the cars robustness. I know you probably don't crash it very much, but is it fragile? Or is it more robust than the current manufacturers cars?

Am I right in saying that you can change both spring rates and damping on the cars shocks? So you never need any option parts? Also will spares (like the chassis) only be available through the online shop?

Thanks in advance, nice to see you on here.

please pick me up one when you're out there.
this looks uber-trick....may have to get one just to build it.

I am quite curious about the shocks.....the appear to be maintenance free....
what is expected life of shocks?
what is the shock tuning options...a how to would be great!

thanks) The car is quite durable, so I suppose it's not necessary to rebuild it very often... we discovered, that it's stronger if compare with regular chassis...

Yeah, you're right, there are only one type of spring for all cases and absorbers, all them could be adjusting in very wide parameters...

Of course you can buy all spares through internet-shop, when the car will be in stock)

the shocks designed for all car life, so you won't be necessary to rebuild it.. now we don't see any reasons to design any other tuning parts for shocks.... we will see it during some time... now it's always show the highest performance....

Ivan looked even more impressive in the prostock races! Nobody let him pass when he got side by side with them! It was carnage, and only the A700 was catching and passing cars! This car is going to be the car to get for 17.5t to 10.5t! Ivan had a tighter line than everybody, and never flipped!!!! WOW!!!!!!

No question it looked impressive. I have liked the concept of this chassis for quite a while but now it looks like my new toy will be stupid fast as well!

Ivan: I don't know if you are able to answer tyis question but what kind of spring rates/dampening has been working for you?

That's our system of fixing of the battery.

Default how does it feel to drive??????????

This may be an odd question, but looking at the front suspension, it looks the same as the trinity switchblade 1/12 and the pro 10 with the infinitely adjustable camber and castor, along with the reaction through the corner.

That being the case is it like driving a 1/12 or pro 10 car - if so may explain why it is so damn fast in Ivans hands.

BTW amazing achievement - one car - one driver - prototype - the worlds best drivers in mod and stock - a final in both - superb!

Now a car doesn't make a driver, and I am sure, by the sound of it Ivan would do well with any car, but superb nevertheless.

It's great to see a genuinely new design on hte market - not just a new top deck or a slight movement of the cells to the left and the belt being flipped - this from a t3'11 buyer!!!!!!!!!!!

I really hope this car gets some support, and more success - had I known about it... - unfortunately I don't think it would make me that good

Oleg, will the kit come with that black tape to hold the battery down or velcro?

You are always best off using glass fibee tape... velcroe is unreliable.

Personally I would prefer a carbon battery strap ala tc4ft ,with screw type system!!! Is that a future option? Mechanically holding the battery should be more reliable than glue!!!!!

Using the strap with screws, you are likely to tweak the chassis using this method.

Hi, just want to know how will you be able match the spring rates and damping on all 4 shocks. Will there be a guage to use?

And will it be possible to use both motor mounts at the same time to fit 2 motors?

And what is the dry weight of the chassis?

Thanks

The only way to go is a battery strap hold down. I mean, come on! this is the 21st century and we are still using tape to hold the battery in place?!!! I know tape is the lightest way to do it, but the strap system with screws is only slightly heavier and with brushless motors the extremely slight weight increase is of no consequence. I say to all rc car manufacturers: Enough with using tape already!!
