also was the v2 block thing discovered on carpet or asphalt or both & what advantage was dicovered with this over the standard block that will come with the kits

not flaming here just wondering
True, however could probably achieve similar / same effect by adding more spacers on front on alloy dual bell crank (steering) .. assume there is enough room for this.

What about the carbon extensions on the prototype pictures? I assume these come with the new kit?
That would make the aluminium block nice but not essential...??

It would be nice to know exactly what the finished product will have in the box.

North America:
Depending on what day of the week they ship from the factory, we may be able to have kits to our customers by the weekend of April 28th.

Prioritization will be to those attending the Reedy Race (May 24-27). If you would like a kit and are attending the Reedy please email us at topracingusa@yahoo.com. ASAP (if you haven't done so already)

Thanks!
Im excited to get a production car. This car is good.

Reedy is going to be fun a bunch of EX's will be out there from the east coast.

I drove the installation laps on mine last thursday, and it felt relly good. The car had a lot of steering midcorner, without loosing the rear end.
More testing and setup build-up is next on the list.

You can look forward to try the new ride, it's cool ;0)

I'm seriously getting twitchy in the last few days, overly excited about much on the new car, and how badly I want to start building it...

No need to go to the airport, my EX's and spares are coming in through TOP SA.

Yeah look my Photon is real good right now and so far all reports coming from the team drivers who have run the EX are very positive, so I'm beside myself with anticipation for the EX
