The 977 is looking really good... I'm glad that a lot of passion and thought was put into this car. 2013 is the year of the snake and this car is arriving in perfect fashion.

The car looks good. Ik looks like the twisting is done at the front. the weight is normally transfered to the front when braking and i wonder how it will do it when all the weight is not transferred to the front with all that twisting going on. With the KM and the mugen it was on the rear and there you still have the weight in front to help you brake and turn in. It is tested so it should work but its hard to relate to the setup info i learned through the years. We will see at the track.

Because a 1/8 does NOT break on it's front wheels, but only on the rear wheels, you don't want to much weight transfered to the front.
And which "twisting" are you talking about? The flex you mean?

YEs flexing. And your right i forgot that about braking, (10 scaler do brake on the front) but you do need turn in
bad with 8 scale or you will have to brake more. But the concept is interesting thats for sure.

I don't think the flex is THAT much that it really can be felt during break/turn in. Because then there is not much speed left in the car (because of the breaking), and because of that not a lot of weight transfer anymore.....

The car looks more quiet, not that busy with links, screws, spacers etc.

Way to much metal being used.

When I retire my 966 I'll get an RX8.
