Talk with Herminator about this...he seems to know more about the Euro seen than I do..
anyways the Triox Car will cost more than it would to import one from SpeedTech in the States..

-Dave
Looks like I'll need to try one... Did they relocate the batteries on the PAL chassis as well?

He dropped by the track and watched the first heat, but had to go play on a flight simulator, so no racing for him last night..

I would say they did by looking at the photo of it
look at the battery slot and then look at the servo mount
and compare it to yuor web chassis
