Nono, nowhere near that. It will be lower than the r5.1 street price.

Anyone else notice the tweak springs aren't on top of the rear links? That changes some stuff for sure. That's not like the Associated.

You can either mount the springs inboard or you can also mount them so they touch on the top of the links, ala AE. As you move the springs inboard, I believe they will feel softer. We will see where Max and Dave end up mounting them

EDIT: Don't listen to me, I don't know what I am talking about.

Softer.

Moving the springs inboard decreases the motion ratio acting upon them... thus, it requires a stiffer spring to yield the same effective spring rate as the same car would with the springs mounted over the links.

Thanks James, this is what happens when you don't think before posting. Either way, the car does support both spring positions.

Is there a WGT car in the pipeline?

Also, when will the manual for the Lightning 12 be posted?

First test with the Lightning 12 was great! Car was very balanced, easy to drive, and most of all fast!

Those were great races and the car looked dialed. That was a lot of fun to watch...

Way to lay it down!
