The more i read and see the more i like your car Oleg. There seems to be some good intrest in the car, i hope it translates in to sales.

You mentioned previously that the production of the car would be relatively limited, can you tell us how many cars will be produced initially? Any further news on the release date?

As always we look forward to some latest pics, news etc, as dragonfire said an update to the web sections i.e option parts and the forum would be good, although i can imgaine your very busy right now!!

Thanks as usual for your time.

Thanks, Chrissy C

We had ~ 200 pre-orders earlier.
But as new pre-orders continue to arrive we make the first batch sufficient for some additional orders and for stock of spare parts.

I'll try to keep you informed.

Hi Oleg, sorry if i already missed it but how does the sealed ball diff work? Do you mean factory sealed or rebuildable sealed. cheers

Am I correct in assuming you have tie rods on the rear for adjusting rear toe? Have you tried angling the link to create "active" toe? I can imagine some practical uses for such a setting.

ark - Diff is fully rebuildable. It is possible to use this diff as a normal ball diff with diff lubes only or to fill inner space by silicone fluid ( 100-100000cpc) as a gear diff.
We use it now as fully filled by silicone fluid and have more than 30 runs without rebuilding. There are 16 ceramic balls inside of our diff.
It is possible to adjust diff spring tension of our filled diff without disassembling.

Dragonfire - Yes we have tried to create active rear toe. It seems useful.

That diff sounds seriously cool....

I would think that an active rear toe with more toe on power and less off would be very useful on the tracks I race on here in sydney.

Please don't forget about the additional rear steering in the turns in this case.

This car actually sounds like it's worth the $750.

Agreed, you can get to $750 quick with a t2 '11 and ECS's and gear diffs

Part of me hopes this car isn't as good as it looks so I don't get killed by one, lol.

Excatly! I normally find 3.5 rear toe works great for throttle but lacks a little off throttle and in the.middle of the turns. With this it sounds like you could set it to 3.0 and have up to.3.5 on power, 3.0 in the middle.o the turns and 2.5 off.power for.better turn in under brakes.

It sounds quite trick to.be.honest... Only thing that sucks is you need to use gauges to set up the rear toe instead of.just installing the right block or.spacer...
