Here is the latest picture: Leisure Hours Raceway Joliet IL

I spoke with Billy Easton for over an hour about this buggy. This thing flew at the Illinois Indoor Nitro Championships at Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, IL this on Dec. 1-2.

No rear chassis brace? The track didn't look rough enough to warrant that...

It has a rear brace. It's not much of one though. It's a small piece of "L" shaped bent metal that's not very thick. It's a prototype.

Oh, okay. Couldn't see it in the one pic is all, then. It's an interesting looking car. A little TTR S3, a little Losi, a little Kyosho. lol

It looks like the Durango version because it is the Durango buggy. Just the throttle/brake servo is turned 90 degrees, CF shock towers and a few other little changes. That's why it's a prototype work in progress.

If you'll notice, by rotating the carb, the battery and servo can be placed adjacent to the motor to offset that weight. And that is good for balancing the buggy.
