BTW, I haven't really updated the thread with what I've been running lately.

I've switched over to the reinforced arms for the front of the car. These are still pretty low in carbon, so they do flex, but nothing like the kit arms. Just makes the front of the car a little bit more predictable.

I have also done back to back testing on two occasions and two tracks with the kit chassis to the high-bite chassis. I haven't run it on an extremely low grip track, and on a high grip track, it didn't make much of a difference as far as traction went. What it does seem to do though is make the car easier to drive. My car goes through bumpy or rutted sections really well, better with the softer chassis than the stock chassis. For those reasons alone I'm pretty convinced that I'm staying with it.

I'm sure that I would notice a grip difference on a low-bite track, but the main thing is that it helps on high-bite as well without doing anything weird.

No word from Tamiya Japan.


We have been getting a few requests from racers that want us to build them. We might have to do that.


I will keep everyone updated once we get some commitments solved and the numbers crunched.

On the question about the sponsorship program I got notified before thanksgiving that I made the team! I dont know if they got a chance to tell everybody or not? What I can tell you is they are busy busy people. Maybe just give them some more time to sort through the applicants.

Good job Cantrell! What track you run at up there? I was up that way bout a year ago for work and stopped by Scott Browns track/shop. Kinda cool to be the only one at the track with a Tamiya but they will see the light!

Id like to come up that way Dlewis. Watched some youtube vids of your track looks different than what I usually run on. A lot tighter layout. If you get the chance. Enid Ok will having their Bigfoot race in march I believe. You should definetly try and make that one! You can check them out at enidrcracing.com
