Any pics would be great.

Thanks,

Most of the guys that I have asked are running the electronics outboard of the trailing links.

I'm still running mine forward. But thinking about trying mine back beside the links. I still don't like the idea of them hanging over the chassis. The setup I'm running, I don't feel that I need them moved to the back. But thought about trying it.

Oh, crap. Yep, got them in stock, just not up on the website. Give me a day or so and it will be up there.

Mine just shipped yesterday! I can't wait! Hopefully I'll be able to get it built and a body painted in time for next weekend's race. Hmmm...maybe I'll find an excuse to take a day off from work

The new car is coming along nicely...I will post pics when I am through.

I may take Mr. Haynes advice and try the electronics mounted outside the links.

Another successful weekend for the Darkside car. Steve Walter and I put our Mx2 in the show at the Full Trottle Carpet Challenge in Gaithersburg, MD. The car was awesome all weekend.
