I'd rather wait the single-belt Si. Atlas always has good quality.

I saw it in the Electroc On=Road thread. Just browse through there. IMHO, not that much of an eye candy. Don;t know about the handling....

paulc: gotta agree with FBJ. belt or shaft - both have their pros and cons. i guess its all about preference and what will complement your driving. personally, i'd try them all if i had the funds but i dont have that luxury ...

i'm actually quite excited to see you guys sport those tech tourers at the track. should be interesting to see them. im sure they'll be great performance wise as well.

Mercury: I tried our mine today at our local track. Track is abit bumpy. I used a Reedy Kr 10 Turn motor, old tires (around 3 races), my set up was based on the basic set up on the Tech Racing site. I thought nothing was going to come close to my CUDA's handling. I can't believe that out of the box, this car was hooked and aggressive at the same time. Cornering was excellent, entry, mid and exit. Acceleration was very smooth, but not as wild as the shaft driven cudas. The car has very good On-power steering and off power is good too. Chicanes or transistion corners need a bit of commitment on the throttle and driver should keep a steady hand because the car reacts quickly to every input. I was using an old futaba 9402 servo and still had a good time with the car, didn't notice too much on the sluggishness of the servo. The more you apply throttle, the more the car turns in the corner. Hardly pushes out unless you deliberately punch the throttle. My practice day was cut short after 3 packs coz one of the CVD pins, fell off during practice. The front one way unit seemed to be very sturdy.

Car was very smooth. Overall, the car is very good and can run competitively against other top brands. I bet the car would be even more better with the 3D cut chassis, the same one used in the MY02Rs.

Highwayman: The 3D cut chassis is basically a 3mm CF plate with the bulkhead, motor mount, servo and some other areas of the chassis had been cut out and lowered by 1mm to give the car a lower CG. Here is a photo of the 3D cut chassis which will explain it better
Here is a photo of the upper deck. The one on top is the stock upper deck and the one below is the 3d cut upper deck.
