I'm 100% looking forward to the new car. The "taller big bore" shocks will give the car a more consistent drive and also make the chassis easier to drive.

Also the new upper bulk head clamps are a nice improvement. Would of liked to see thicker shock towers and a wider adjustment (by 1mm) regarding the wheelbase.

Pairing these improvements with the aluminum chassis, I think the others will have a hard time keeping up

I am definitely excited to see the new changes and am glad that they went back to the longer shocks. That's a change that I've been hoping to see for a while.

Looks good, glad they went back to std size shocks,

Nah -- get it now -- by the time others are figuring it out and coming out with something -- you'll be hooked up and all tweaked to go fast.

Good week for ARC -- bodies approved by ROAR, let the cat out of the bag about the new car --- moving forward!!!

Yes, looking for early part of August for kits, maybe about a week later for upgrade kits.

That's something really cool to remember. There are quite a few parts from the 2013 car that will carry over to the 2015. Arms, C blocks, lower suspension pickups, drivetrain... So if you have a 2013 kit, and upgrade to a 2015, you really have 2 different versions of a car you can work with. More options for more situations.

Can't wait for you guys to get your hands on them....

I just purchased a original R10 (2011?) from a fellow forum member, from the pics it looks like I'll need a new spur right away.
What spur-pinion combination would you guys recommend for a speed passion 10.5 motor, running on a small asphalt track? Should I go 64P or 48P?

The car can run either 48 or 64 pitch. As for the ratio - might want to check with your motor manufacture or even from fellow racers at the track you run at. Every track is a little different, what works at my track may not work at yours.

Your best bet for 10.5 blinky would be a 110 or 114t if you choose to use a 64 pitch spur gear.

Thanks, I won't be running 10.5 blinky, it's open mod class. I just happen to have a SP 10.5 to start with and some mid-20's 48P pinions on hand. Guess I'll start with a stock spur and work it from there.

Mid 20's pinions will be fine for 10.5 boosted and Mod with the kit 84 spur.
