I hope you have revised the roll centers, they were very very far from the concurrence... That could be a problem on fast tracks with very high grip...

And I'm still persuaded that a carbon motor mount will be a problem with MOD motors...

Do you have an idea when some pictures will be published?

Do you have front axle assemblies for the STX? I can't find them on the web site and need to buy 2

Yup there is a new car in the pipes since the middle of 2014... The last prototype I drove was not ready to go to production but it was months ago.

The arms are identical to 2014', but the rest has changed, like a lot!

- New main chassis
- New upper-decks
- New bulkheads
- New steering
- New servo support

And as a non-biased person (i don't own one, I don't have a stake in the company, I'm not sponsored, ...) I can tell you that that proto hauled a$$ on the track!

We are testing some prototype solution, each week the factory changes something for improving the car.
Now there's no 2015 version.

The carbon motor mounth isn't a problem, we are testing only with 4,5T motor, and the teperature are always in a good range.

The upper bulkhead and the uniball are 1,5 mm lower than the 2014 model

No, it isn't an old car, the new one is under tests, I think it not will be available till september, or later

I was not talking about the temperature, I was talking about the rigidity... One of my friends had problems with 64DP spur gears...

What are you calling "uniball"?

We use only 64DP spur gears and have no problem.

Uniball, the inner roll center

Hello, and how about the arms, c-hubs,...
Wil they still go on the new car? Because i'm gonna begin selling WRC in my shop, and don't want to take stock and in 1 month it's already a lost investment
Also i'm gonna begin driving myself a STX.
