Does it really matter where you buy your stuff? It's still gonna sit on the same shelf and collect the same dust. JK
The chassis looks really good. How about a 3.4 mm chassis for the RDX to round out my collection? (2.4, 2.9, ..., 3.9)

All saturday delivery cars have been shipped along with those who paid early for monday shipping.

I have two recipiants who have not responded to there confirmation email. Their cars will be up for grabs if someone wants them for snowbirds, I can still get them out for monday.

We'll have more cars next week for the non-snowbirds customers. Shipping will be a flate rate of $7.99

We're having a snowbirds special for those attending the race. We'll be bringing top decks and selling them at the race for $20.00. This price is a snowbirds only price and will not be availible anywhere else.

I looked at the chassis on Peter Robinsons car today. It looks very nice.

I'm curious to know how far off the holes in the stock chassis are, as measured on the CMM.. and which side looking down?

On Peter's chassis those holes should be dead nuts. we eliminated any discrepency in the hole alignment. Unfortunately we did not measure the discrepency on the stock chassis.

Actually george has those numbers, (our guy who did the cmm) he said it wasn't much more than a quarter mil. I'll get the specifics for you guys when i"m with him at the birds and post it.

Thats only about .010".

Accross the whole side of one bulkhead will only give you less than .5degrees of difference. Is that responsible for the rear toe issue that has been discussed?

Stock chassis Ed worked with had all bulkhead holes aligned to +/-.004" along the chassis center line...

That seems pretty good to me.

Nice work on your chassis though!!! I will certainly want a top deck.

Thinking I may want to find out who came out with this one, an extra step forward to making chassis stiffer. Didn't make use of them in his setup though.

Is that ralph's car? If so, it was probably made by hudy or someone not for production as a one off or a very select few got them.

I actually think it is Ralph's car. Trinity motor, KO receiver, Novak ESC.....

Team Pickles, can you guys do something like that? I mean given that some might never use the outside standoffs, but knowing it's there to use is a good option.
