Just built 2 of them up ready to try, one tip be careful when doing up the screws, the driver doesnt go very deep into the screw hex and it is easy to round out the hex, they even give you 2 spare screws, maybe in case you loose one

I think it is the original chassis, only shaped narrower in the fornt and rear after the suspension mounts.
This is still a prototype i think. Maybee done by themselfs...

Marc used this chassis already at the euro warmup here in austria.

More interesting is the front drive train, looking closely seems that Marc is using spring steel spool outdrives, and DCJ's... I assume from Spec-R.
Also has cut the V on the top dck at the front.. And split suspension mounts all round again. Looks like that car is setup to steer! Lol

Think the are Roche outdrives, been released a week or 3 back. Very good ran them in my car last weekend for first time with 46mm driveshafts no wear and plenty of steering.

Motor screws are top/bottom on Marc's car with the 417 motor mount. We saw this at Reedy, too.

Yep 416/416X/417 use the same body mounts.

They have been running a cut top deck for some time now, front and back braces are cut, Elliot recommended this to us at the west London national

Just noticed that. Why have they gone back this way?

Also Marc running very short wheelbase in the front of the car. Very interesting.

Must be really working won the final ETS round.

Actually, he's shifted all the weight forward.. Front wheelbase shim looks like 0.5mm (and Ackerman looks like 2mm, but might be less), whilst the rear wheelbase looks like 3.5mm. So all the arms back 0.5mm. Be interesting to see if he was running any front arm sweep as well.

In the last ETS meeting in Netherlands, I believe seeing Marc's setup sheet with B toe block on the Front Rear.
