That is a clean looking car. Does anyone have any idea what weight it will be with average equipment. I am happy to see a small company breaking into a 'big boy' game. Good luck Caster. Adam

Looks much closer to the MBX6 with its upper arm and pivot ball system.

YES, all team driver rules, requirements, regulations, etc... will apply to any and all Caster products for the 2009 season.......

There will be a price difference between the zx1r parts and the zx1.5r parts, so people who do not have to have the best of the best, etc... will be able to race a little cheaper than the guys who have the new stuff. Once the old is depleted, everyone will just upgrade either by conversion kit or by part by part basis. We have enough zx1 stuff in hand that I think it will be around March or April when the zx1r parts will be done.

The great thing about it is that the changes are not a complete redesign, so parts will be interchangeable. The only concern will be having a black shock tower on the back and a brown one on the front type of scenario.....lol.

This sort of came up unexpectedly, but I will gladly take it, as we have been focused on the electric side over here.

I can't wait to see how it performs on the track. I only hope that it is an improvement and not a step backwards like some of the bigger manufacturers have made.

I have full faith in both design teams, so it will be fun to see if one has a competitive edge.....

It will weigh less than the ZX1R. Once we get them in, I will personally weigh one with and without the new grenade motor and pipe. I am very curious about the whole thing.....
