Heheh more questions for Dave

Will the R3 have the standard matte black carbon chassis available as well as the rainbow version?

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......

I'm kind of with TC3, love the new design motor mount and changed layout but the rest.... hmmm

Getting ready for another night of racing, last pack of cells on charge Hope to improve on 4th this week, just need to get it into corners a bit tighter, struggled with understeer on last weeks extra dusty floor Could of done with cells further forward

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?

Here they are
keep in mind they are not the best pictures...they are from a cell phone camera
Cell phone cameras are great arent they? I'd have to say it's one of the coolest things I've bought

It would be cool if they had the chassis matching the parts, pink, blue, red, purple...
