Oh yeah... And if you are running low grip surface, try to mount the upper decks on the outside... We have used this setup successfully here...

I just updated my STX with the new 3mm upper decks, new hard diff, new shocks and new center pulleys... Seems very promising...

Still have to wait 20 days to try it on our track...

The 3mm upper decks are a great improvement... They make the car more consistent in left-right transitions...

I've also tried a prototype carbon chassis, stiffer, which could lead to a new chassis for the 2015 version.

Yesterday, I've equipped my STX for high grip track, with the Ergal chassis, front diff, 3mm upper decks... The stiffeners are ready if that's not enough, but I think the Ergal chassis will be perfect...













So let's test this configuration tomorrow...

I have the 2013 version but don't run it because I can't find anybody that has parts in stock. I'm in the US.

Where do you get your parts from ?

Thanks.

We have an official distributor here in Switzerland...

I'm going to contact him to check if there is an official distributor in USA...

You can also use www.rc-pro-shop.com, but I think shipping fees could be expensive...

Good news for WRC drivers, you'll find all the improvements described on the 2015 version....

We are testing the final prototipe, some pictures next week...

Cool! Will the car retain its general architecture, or will this change? How about the motor mount?

Thanks!

The general architecture will be similar for transmission, the upper deck type and bumper, then all is changed.
The motor mount is not made in ergal .....
