For the past couple of months we have been developing Lexan bodies. As of the past week we have finally been able to start bringing this project to fruition. I leave you guys with some pictures. If you have any questions, please ask.








So far the testing is going really well. By the end of the week some samples will start getting shipped to some of our team drivers so that we can get some feedback. Right now, I need to make 1 change to the TC mold so that it fits the GBS rules. The bottom side skirts flare out a bit too much so we need to shave the mold a tid bit to make it legal. Everything else was measured to spec in order to insure that the bodies are ROAR legal, and we should be submitting them soon for approval.

One really nice development is our featherweight line of TC bodies. They are much 15-25g lighter than what is available in the market today. These will be especially beneficial on small to medium-sized, medium to high bite conditions. In testing, they are 0.1 seconds faster per lap and also overheat the tires much less. The performance is awesome as well. The body is designed to switch directions quicker than a Mazdaspeed 6, but at the same time, maintain the balance of stability and smooth response it has. The shorter overhang in both front and rear allow this. The rotation of this body is really nice. You can really feel the difference with it.

I am going 0.05-0.1 seconds faster with our lightweight version over the Mazdaspeed 6/ the GX and LTC-R and a further 0.1 seconds with the featherweight body. I really do think that we have a winner, at least for american style carpet tracks. We will see over time if the case is for other types of surfaces.

The featherweight body is extremely flimsy. I would think that in order to run it outdoors with Mod motors, you would need a 5th body post. Indoors, this is not an issue whatsoever.

The R12SS body is designed to fall in between the CRC Audi and the AMR-12. I have done limited testing with it and so far I really like what we have. The car is "freer" in the middle of the corners than the AMR, but has a mellower. initial steering response than the CRC Audi. Laptime wise, I am running the same hot lap at the beginning of a run than with the AMR, but at the end of the run the car is about .15 seconds quicker. This tells me the car is being more efficient and is not as loaded in the corners. I really like it.

Also, we have gotten the pre-order for the re-release of the evo on the website. it will come with the new servo mount and compatibility for our 6.2 battery mounting system. If we reach 8 pre-orders we will re issue it, if not, we will refund customers' money.

Got it, we had to finish the process manually.

If anyone else is interested in the EVO chassis re-release, please make sure you get your orders in. We will keep the pre-order going for 30 days. If we get to the number earlier, we can have them available within 7-10 days.

They will be ready sometime next week, so maybe they will ship by next Friday if possible.

Hey, how come no BD7 aluminum chassis love? Black anodized with silver edges would go great with my Black Edition! hehe Although I do see TRR Racestuff has one available.

Yeah, that's where I saw it. But ordering from EU is a pain sometimes and expensive. If I can get it at a decent price... I may try it.
