Well I made a lot of the silver bulk heads but everyone wanted them with belt tensioner bearing holders and I did not have time to make new ones we also used the HPI Suspension. But then we tested the Tamiya MSX off of my Refine2 and I felt it had more adjustment so we went with that and the motor mount has changed as well.

As for the change in suspension geometry there is none form our testing cars.
The motor and everything is still in the same place.



The Yokomo Suspension car is a Special Order for one of our Team Factory drivers. we also have a car out there running the Cyclone Suspension.

To make a oh so long story short we had some bad luck this year and it is not cheap getting parts made like arms diffs c hubs steering knuckles and so on.

So we did the next best thing Like our F201SCFPRO II F1 car we went with what I felt would be best. Tamiya parts. everyone stocks them!

Marty..
I just realized....I could use the slots in the left side as a vent/cool area for my speedo, I'm mainly using a GTB speedo it will work perfectly and the tape slot will allow me to tape down that massive capacitor the GTB uses.....ohh..yeah..

Make sure Fred runs on the indoor asphalt track as well. It is super smooth and will be able to get early asphalt testing to. Plus I want to see the car and hang out with Fred and Bob again. See I have a hidden agenda here.

Smooth indoor asphalt then he has the wrong chassis setup for that but I bet it works good as well

Damn. Well Fred will just have to wheel it. I will say this track has carpet like traction if not higher so maybe the thicker chassis will still be dialed.

Color wise I'm with you on the green as it is killer. Only saw one car done in this color and it was a Corally Assassin that someone posted on Tech last year in green and it was killer looking.
