I think I saw the proto type at the Birds sitting on the table. IRS big ring diff. Much thicker chassis with no cutouts except new 4 cell battery layout (which I think it neat). And a new 5 dynamic front with new hinge pins and strut bar.

the material look different but the lighting wasnt that good pluss after 3 to 4 days off sleeping for only 6 hours it was hard to make out the car. the diff was the larger dia rings and differnent hubs the chassis only had four cell holes cut out and there where no other cut out except for the normal hole under the front struts!

yes the car was there on the ae table but nobody ran it. it also has adjustable battery trays.

Storm

the new front end looks the same except the blocks have a cut out for a graphite brace. plus 2 set screws to hold in a new pin design. also the lower pod plate has changed .

Dave Puliafaco,

What-up? We were in a Main together at Birds-dont recall which one now. I wanted to chat with you-but never got around to it. Maybe at the Nats now-eh?

Ray

Ray yah I wouldn't call that race a main but more like a savage fest. I was leading with like a 6 sec lead and got delivered off the track. I had the white mazda 6 with orange and yellow tribal on it. But hey who cares it was still alot of fun I couldn't stop laughing at the way my car was taking the bumps it looked like it hade hydraulics.

I am buying a house so the nats are out of the question.
