I'm more excited about having more space in front of the suspension arms, but longer wheelbase should help corner speed as well.

The car uses a steering rack that i made that has an aluminum steering post and 2 5/16x3/16 bearings. The purpose for using this was to make sure the steering geometry stays the same throughout full steering throw. The car has been working extremely well. It allows for the use of our flex plates or links with springs. I have been using the flex plates but i will be doing more testing with links so i can give you a honest comparrison. So far the lap times show them equal yet the feel is different. The flex plate car is a little easier to drive. I will keep you all posted as i get more time with the car. In the mean time, let me know what you think. Keep in mind, this does not mean i am releasing a new car right now. I am always trying new stuff and i figured i would share with all of you.

Hi Jason,

It's only Copperhead 10? Or Copperhead 12 would be too?
