i know it is but its a bit dissapointing as i suspect most people were counting on it to be released before the start of the season. but now it lookes like a 1/5 of the season will be gone before it comes out.
(oh well! thats life!)

I just hope they come out in time to get some laps with it before the eXpress race in the beginning of June.

Harden steal hinge-pins are a better fit for the application

Turnbuckles were to help keep kit cost down.

Yes, the car has been delayed do to parts not passing QC. We could always sell the car minus those parts so you have something to look at

This is a lot different than the Losi situation! This car was not even suppose to be officially announced until Feb, but leaked photos forced our hand before we were ready. Secondly we didn't have the car done and then put it off because of other projects.

Every day this car is late we lose money, so we are the last ones that need or want this delay

is going?
The fixed layshaft is a hardened steel piece 5mm in diameter with an 8mm square foot at its base. It is about 20mm long. This piece is screws to an 8mm thick bulkhead.

This assembly has been tested for over a year. Team drivers have run it on modified Mi2EC's and Mi3 Prototypes with ZERO issues.

The R&D department has done some pretty evil non track teasting on the Mi3 layshaft setup. You have nothing to worry about...trust me
