Nope, not McFactory. I was running a one-off chassis made by Max.FX. 2.5mm, same 'mounting points' as the stock TOP chassis. Springs outboard on top of the links, as normal. Stock carbon lower pod plate.

Looks like a TOP car won 1/12 stock at Snowbirds. Sure would like to see what the car looks like.

It looked a lot like the same old TOP car that has been around since 2011, just with an alu chassis made by McFactory/Wallace/whatever name they use now.

they tried to change the car with changing the chassis to solid, then back to the original design, now they are offering a aluminum chassis option.
