Just saw it now. Nice but looks pretty standard from what is out there.

Yeah, i saw that one also. It is nice. I tried serrated holders like that but they didnt hold up well. If you go fine pitch like you do need to(at least .5mm increments), the serrations can get crushed easy and it is tough to get it lined up evenly. You need to count teeth from the top down to match them side to side. I went away from that and to what i have with a shimmed block. Its solid, fast adjusting, accurate and is a super low CG as it only stands 1 inch tall and is also very light weight. Dropped close to 7 grams of weight over our standard pod.

I like what I see on that cad drawing...where will ride height adjustment come from? Looks like the bearing holder might be a separate piece from the motor mount? Shims underneath?

That is correct sir. Shims under the bearing block and the tab in the front of the bearing block. The screw that holds the motor mount protrudes through the motor mount and acts as a stud. Drop the shim on that and under the block and it is solid and set.

The two tracks I race at are talking about a 17.5 class for duffers like me.

Any recommendations on setup changes from 13.5?

This is of the both motor screws at the bottom school? I'm not entirely sold on that idea. Is there a top plate that goes with this, similar to what you're using now? Will this be updateable to the Ch12?

Just tires really. Try running gray or black fronts with white rears(BSR compounds)

To be honest, it holds fine and still allows for a ton of gear. I wanted low CG and this seemed to work fine. It definitely wont hurt if that is your concern. The pod will be updatable for the CH12. It is actually going to be released as an option part. The stock pod works fine. This one is just a super light weight and super low CG. It also eliminates ride height cams. It will be for those who like to have exotic stuff on there cars. It is very high finish and very fancy.

Thanks buddy. We are going to be really making some crazy cool stuff this year. We will have our standard high quality kit and then super exotic upgrades that i cant afford to put in as a kit. The kit is our already proven CH12 and the upgrades will be offered to really pimp your ride. Not only pimp it, make it even faster.
