Good photo's Dave, especially for a phone camera

Shouldn't that top deck in the first photo have counter sunk holes?

Interesting using only one screw in the motor mount to the bottom chassis, wonder how it will effect tweakability, I suppose with the changed steering it makes it a lot easier to just lift the whole drive shaft/motor mount/top deck assembly straight off and change the spur.

i dont like the tc3 steerig
and about the rainbow look, i am not sure.. it looks more like a toy than a high tech racing car
but maybe the new drivesystem will be an advantage

Chassis balance has been changed also.. not just the fancy chassis and motor mount ...it might not be everyones cup of tea......

Here's number two.
It's dull since it's a little dusty
Will be taking some pics at the club tonight, borrowed my dads nice digi cam I'll probably get photo's of crashes though, since I'm always marshaling the begginer heat wish some of them would learn to turn at the top of the straight, where I usually marshal one guy hit me twice last week, there's a wall there ffs, do they not see it?
