EXCELLENT NEWS!!

Over on the SMC Hardcase LiPo thread Danny (Mr. SMC) said they've changed course on their LiPo saddle pack. They'd originally planned to match the height of the TrackPower but are now going to make it lower.

WOO HOO!!

Here is a pic of a quick prototype i wipped up for testing. THe production tray will be anodized and have a machined finish. I made this one on a CNC punch press as opposed to my CNC milling machine so the part has more of a stamped look in the pic.

The cool thing about this tray is it brings the weight of the lipo up to the weight of a standard 4 cell pack. This will limit the amount of lost rear traction when running lipo.

Nemix, don't be such a tease. You remind me of girl I used to know!! She'd let you get to first base and then threw you out when you tried to steal second!

What is the possibility of using touring rubber tyres or even foams ???
The std wheels seem a bit out of place especially on the rear.


Looks great though !!

I have had a couple people ask about rubber tires. I may try it out in not too long just for the hell of it.

Are you going to offer a package deal with tires on this car like you did with the DB12R? I'm really impressed with your customer support and will more than likely be getting this car in the near future.

Thanks buddy. We try to support the product to the best of our ability.

I may offer tires in the near future with the car. I want to see what the majority of people decide they want to run so i can better choose the compound.

No Problem!!

You could come to Omaha and pick up your new Vette... and race at "The Plex" with us!!!

I started building my 10R last night. It's going together nice but there are a couple things I'd like to discuss. Other than that, the car is Sweeeeet...!
