I received my Nikita v3 outdrives yesterday. They look super beefy (in a good way) but I'm not a fan of the part finish. Currently they have a brushed aluminum look. Id like them to shine more so I'm sending them back to have their finish altered. I'll be grabbing a handful and not sending them back for finish change to support weekend testing.

Right now it appears I'm getting the newly finished parts drop shipped to the Reedy. The first time they will be available for sale is track side at the Reedy. If anything changes I'll let everyone know here.

The Nikita v3 tested out well yesterday within XRay T3'11 and T3'12 cars running either:
1 - XRay 50mm ECS
2- Atomic v2 double joint universals

My initial production run was returned to the machine shop Saturday for a bit of shining up. These should be really nice. Pictures/etc won't come out until I receive the newly finished/polished units. The major changes are:
1- designed to work with 50mm drive shafts. the outdrives have been strengthened (much like the v1 batch) to ensure they are ultra durable
2- the outdrives are 'twisted' 45 degrees to provide a 90 degree difference between the left and right outdrive pins to reduce any additional drive train binding. this has always been possible with the Mira outdrives, and now you can get them within the Nikita's.

Finally, just got done running the Seis fan assembly line for Reedy Race orders. I will continue to ship orders Monday (5/21) and Tuesday (5/22) -- but after Tuesday 10pm Eastern all orders will ship when I return from the Reedy Race, Tuesday 5/29.

Side Piece Racing Seis Fan helps push Viktor Wilck to victory at the Reedy Race Invitational Race!! Congrats to Viktor, Tamiya and Thunder Power for the win!

I've just got all of the orders that came in processed. They will ship this morning.

My machine shop sent the newly re-finished Nikita v3 out drives to my home instead of Cali so only a few people got to see the new units this past weekend. I'll get some new pictures posted --- but right now they are available for sale. Nikita orders will start shipping on Wednesday (giving me time to build up some packaged inventory and update the web site).

Ah, yeah, I think you're right. He's got the fan wires soldered to his battery plugs.

Inventory is getting super low on the Mira Outdrives for TOP Photon (or any other 40T touring car) to enable the running of XRay ECS drive shafts. Unless there is an increase in demand this will probably be the last ones to ever exist (outside of my pit box!)
