Nice paint job. What do you charge for a paint job?

Thanks. Most of the car is hot pink. Only a few purple parts. No capacitor on the Keyence speedos needed. Besides that feature, they are also unbelievably trick. For a brushed setup, I love this one.

That's a simple one. Not too much for something like thatómaybe $30 or 40. For something that's like my Mi3 or my old JRXS-R, probably a little more. And I'm pretty slow, too. If you don't need anything in a hurry, and you want something a little different, I'm your guy

The servo used is a Futaba 9602.
The servo ears were touching the body so I cut them off and clamped the top of the servo. If using a smaller servo you will not need the clamp.
Placing the servo in this position gives you an incredible amount of room for electrics and goods weight distribution.

Thanks Damit

Guys,
There seems to be a rash of new cars lately and I am only going to add to the pile. I am announcing my new MS3 from Slapmaster Tools. Taking a departure from the MS2.3, the new car has a molded chassis that will accept the Asc Dynamic front end with the IRS replacement arms and it will accept the CRC Pro-strut front ends. The front end of the chassis has a shallow off-set which eliminates the shim stack from both front ends. The smallest tire that can be used is 1.53" with no shims. Shim up with the CRC plastic shim - super easy! The chassis is rolled or tubed through the sides, matching the curvature of the cells. The chassis measures 4.05" wide at the cells - which is narrower then any t-bar car on the market and even narrower then some link cars. The chassis footprint that can contact the carpet lies between the axles which allows more roll and eliminates double steer due to chassis contact. I pressed out the very first car last week and took it to the final leg of our NWIC Series Race in Portland, Or. It was trial by fire. I had to maintain a good podium finish in order to capture the series win. After some quick adjustments, the new car was running pretty good. I was working with the Asc/IRS front end. After fine tuning the car, I qualified 2nd on the grid about 3 seconds off the pole and took 2nd in the mains. That was enough for the series win. I was real happy with the first prototype, but I know there is just a little more that can be extracted. What really caught me by surprise is the weight of the car loaded and ready to run turned out to be 817g! My previous car is a 834g with a 19t motor. I will drop in a stock motor for an upcoming Regional race and will likely be right at weight. With todays heavy batteries, this weight advantage will be priceless. I have some more prototype work to preform and then plan to release the MS3 as a conversion kit in the coming month. With some luck, I will try to work the numbers to be able to kit the car as well. No prices have been set yet. The car is not listed on the website just yet, but you can go to www.slapmastertools.com for more contact info.

Very cool Brian! I've always liked your molded chassis a lot. I just want it with a link style rear suspension
