Some prototype work pics. Funny thing about the car is the weight. It's light. The 19t is roughly 817g and the stocker with thin tires was about 788g. The tech guy at the regional race had 784g as official when it should be 794. So I said: OK, I'm going with your number. I heard the next heaviest car was something like 60g heavier.

I like the look of that chassis. It is so flowing and organic. Kind of a break from all the flat plates.

Organic???? They stink like crazy when I bake 'em. There's nothing "organic" about it. I have a 1500cfm fan to suck the stink out of the shop.

The rolled edges produces a very small "foot print" for a chassis. As the car dives into the corner, the lowest point on the nose is even with the front axle. The flat width of the chassis is only 4.05", narrower then some link cars. The chassis is only .080'' thick but with the 45 build bias as I laminate them, produces a chassis as stiff as some of the 3mm-.125" flat chassis I own.

The MS3? You can use either the IRS/Asc front end or the CRC Pro-strut front end without the monster shim stack on the bottom. I use the CRC plastic shim set for fine ride height adjustment. Should be able to get a 1.53" front wheel on the car. The molded front end had to go, so said some of my critics. Some want to be able to break the front end without killing the car. I still have to do a little sanding trick with the IRS arms to get the same spindle height, but I recall the CRC being pretty good.

Yeah! Organic! You should sell em at the Farmer's market
