Good to know, & thanks for pointing it out, appreciate that.

I completely overlooked this, now that I took another look at the chassis comparison between the 3.0 & 4.0 again. My bad. Racers eventually, being how creative they are in general, haha, I'm sure will try to get the 4.0 body to fit their 3.0 (deal with a gap, maybe good for air cooling, ha), or try strech their existing 3.0 body to fit the new 4.0 chassis. I know, I tried it tonight hypothetically, and bended it to fit to the new chassis dimensions up front for a bit, hypothetically of course, haha.

Well, it's time for me to make plans to get the 4.0 body painted next!

Now, we need a 4-gear laydown next! Then it will be completely dialed! For all options and possible conditions.

I have already told local hobby store to get me two of these 4.0. Cause they finally came out with something that's should be highly competitive on the surface that I run on Can't wait for April !!
I run on indoor carpet as well. And there are quite a few B6 owners at my track and they do give my some stiff comp, but after I moved my rear shocks to the front of the arms, the car was completely different. Now my 3.0 has been at the center of the podium alot lately. Nothing like making AE owners cringe when I enter the building on race day.

You only win when I don't show up with my B6! Remember who daddy is, nobody else has pulled off a trifecta clean sweep of all 3 classes this season twice like me

Sweep #1 1/15/17


Sweep #2 2/1/17


Where was ya? Oh and what about the 8 or so other times my b6 has been parked at in the winners circle this season? LOL

Now that the 4.0 has some carpet specific features, will tlr ever release a slim/narrow wheel so tlr drivers won't have to trim the standard 2.2 wheels?? Between Schumacher & JC, I believe every other brand of buggy has a slim wheel that fits(offset, etc) ...except TLR. Seems like a glaring omission that can't be THAT hard to manufacture, but maybe I'm wrong...

I like my SR but of course I am always looking for something better. Orinigally I was thinking I might try the laydown in my SR. After thinking about it the 4.0 chassis might be a good option. The little extra weight up front with the new chassis might be a good compromise between the laydown and stand up. My car is about 20g underweight with the SR chassis so I would think it would be close to 1499 with the 4.0 chassis.

A lot of carpet tracks are in small spaces. My local one is usually in the 12-14 second range.

Nice video. There's nothing I value more than product support.
