The chassis is changed and allows the diffs to be flipped for better weight balance. The shocks were replaced as well. Both are very nice.
Now that's a nice looking car!!!!!!!!!!! You should send it here to Cali so I can run it at the Reedy. LOL

What's your address. This thing could use a good win on it's maiden voyage.

OD was supposed to send some Solaris tires with it.... apparently you don't keep any in your trunk.

Can someone post pics of how the lipo battery mount is installed? I am having a hard time figuring out what the c.s scews are used for and how to adjust to fit my lipo packs.

I just got mine and it had the regular chassis and the lupo chassis. The box sleeve had a dot next to the Int'l Ltd. Touring Car Kit. I got from Norcal and they have been out of Photons for a while, so I'm guessing this is the latest. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

ok had a look at rcmarket and its the Int'l Ltd. edition which I should look for, which apparently they will stock in a couple of days.

I just put one on my standard chassis. The only thing I don't like is how overly complicated these are. But I ended up putting only one screw to hold them to the chassis and not using the spacers on the side. I will post pics when I get home.

Captain, keep checking A Main Hobbies, they should be getting the kits this week. They got the majority of the shipment that TopRacingUSA received last week.

Right I took all the washers out of mine for the regular chassis. But there is only one hole for mounting. Is that correct? Or should I drill another hole?
