Hi guys, don't know if anyones mentioned this recently, but I saw a prototype 'cuda at the weekend. One of the Centrepoint UK drivers came along, and was running a pre-production prototye of an R3S (at least thats what I remember him saying it was called). Looked a fair bit different, to the std R3 cuda, mainly as it was running a graphite plate chassis (@ 3mm thick IIRC) and top deck. Looked very groovy. Aparently for the production version it may be even thicker still with machined sections for batt and motor, making it super stiff! He said their using graphite plate over carbon fibre as it's lighter but just as stiff.

Also interesting to note was the steering arrangement, whilst similar to the R3, it had a couple of plates on top of the rake, that extended out as far as the rack goes, to avoid getting dirt etc inside.

Anyway, car lloked very quick, qualified it P2 for the A, and then promptley won both legs of the A main. Will done Jimmy Maddison.

Just thought I'd let you guys know about this, I didn't get to look at it for very long, but still fairly interesting.

Thanks for the heads up..

I`m not really a fan of the R3 carbon fiber...either in Black or the Sparkle chassis.. I have some one working on a 3mm chassis shock towers and a 2.5mm upper deck right now.. with better weight and chassis balance for the R3 right now hopfully it will be done here by the 22nd of this month I`ll definetly post pic`s when it is done
