Looks like an interesting chassis; parts quality looks top-notch. Any word on how it performs vis-a-vis the competition?

P.S: I'm a tad envious of those beautiful shocks.

Looks like another Magic M1B. not that it looks the same, but the suspension is'nt up to par on tracks with big jumps. Are you supposed to go racing with the hopes of small European jumps, and have to pack your stuff up when you notice the jumps are too much for this car to handle?

why do you think the current trend is big bore shocks on most of the top cars? Because they need to be able to handle the larger jumps, and rough track conditions. This must be an indoor rolling hills type of car!

The only thing I like is the clutch, and what's up with the screws, make up your mind, phillips head of hex head?

Sorry about being so Rough with my comments, I just don't see the practicality of such a radical design.

that's what I was thinking but then I realized it's predominatelly phillips heads...yuck.

That clutch setup looks pretty unique. I'm assuming that the shoes slide out like the Fironi rather than swinging out?

Agreed on the clutch. I also like the brake linkage. Simple yet easy to adjust. You can set your basic "grab" and then adjust bias just like you would a turnbuckle. It looks like it also keeps the linkage from hitting the fuel tank or air filter support at full throttle.

correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't front wings NOT legal in EFRA and ROAR regulations?

I guess Piktor are trying to rewrite the rules with this thing....

They definatly didn't have state side racing in mind. that's for sure. I don't want to race at a track that breaks for tea time.

I'm curious as to what caused them to bring this car out of the wood work... this car is at least 4 years old.. its orig. designer left went to another company (Ishima) and designed a similar car (updated it) and that car is 3+yrs old.. cool design but its old and I'm sure heavier then current cars now.. and nothing against the car or company but how are parts support here in the US…?

Dear Sirs,

Today is a new born. Piktor Company was acquired by CPXdesign.
This new company believes in Rush 2, so the new version Rush 2R has arrived.
This version is a “R”eplica of Philippe Lachat’s car, 2 times Swiss champion last years
with some improvements and options.
All future development of the will be SWISS MADE and a new website has been created for this occasion:

www.cpxdesign.com

I’m waiting on you, you, customer, who have already believed in RUSH.
The Rush 2R is already in the first place of the Swiss championship. The cars are already avaible.

For more information: info@cpxdesign.com
