Apparently someone, David, has this car in this thread, but no pictures or anything yet. I am definitely going to get this car for sure. Something this beautiful that is 100% made in the USA deserves my undivided attention and support.

I won't be buying the shocks as I can transfer them from my Xray T2R Pro.

Oh if only I had the money...

Hey, Dave gave me the go ahead to post some pics of his Tigermoth - I'll post 'em, but I don't know how long he's going to keep running it.

I love the close up shots. THAT IS AWESOME! Thank you for posting them.

But like Evoracer said, why would he stop running it?

All I have is heresay - I'll ask Dave to post or get it in his word tomorrow. It's a shame as the car looked good on the track. I didn't notice he had just gone out, and I was watching this thing thinking "When did he start racing drift???" - he was just working in the tires/traction compound but after that it was pretty stuck and with 17.5/foam was turning laps on pace with the 13.5 rubber TQ, which at our track is about where it should be.

I have been fortunate enough to be envolved in the design of the tigermoth and I continue to be impressed. With very very little alterations it handled rubber tires pretty darn well.

the caster/camber adjustment are pretty trick and easy to adjust. The droop screws are actually usable and they rest on replacable plates.... vury nice.

I thought it handled like a cross between a type r and an rdx. As the car will be run at our local track, I'm looking forward to watching it get faster and faster and faster.

Congrats to Chris, great job!

i got a chance to test drive it last Tuesday on rubber and was really impressed.

this thing was so STUCK i was 3wheeling around corners with NO TRACTION COMPOUND on the fronts, I'm sure the lifting wheel is due to it coming to the track setup for foam before he realized no one else would be running foam.

he ran as close to a rubber setup as he could get with what he had on hand and even then the track times where not far off the pace.

hope to see it have a presence at my local track and i really hope i can wheel it again with a more dialed setup.

edit/
forgot to mention:
it had the upright shock mounts, i'm looking forward to driving it with the laydown setup too

So does it handle better with the shocks in the traditional position? I thought the laydown/cantilever design was a neat idea, but if it doesnt help then its just novelty.

Not sure if it helps but I have seen the car and it can work very well with the shocks upright. If the lay down really does make it feel like a pan car then Im all in but, Ive seen the price tag. No thanks. Same reason I dont have an Xray. Nice car otherwise.

Ok I am really looking at the car tonight in the pics and 1. how stiff is the bottom chassis with the laminated carbon fiber over styrene plastic, 2. the same for the shock towers as they are mounted low (stand up shocks) and the mounting points for the shocks being so high. Worried about movement and/or stiffness of the shock towers.
