Can you include a couple of extra arms in my order?
I've heard that the car features the TKX-3 leg system instead of conventional suspension arms. I've been told the third leg offers some exciting length adjustments to handle squat and dive.

Ha!

Because of the 3 shock system, I already gave this edition the nickname "Tripod".

I want to thank Mr. Kraimer for the opportunity to run this car in the USA. If any of the US Guys are running the car and have problems, please find me either by e-mail or pm, or if I'm at your track come on over if you have any questions or concerns. I'm here to help Tommy help you!


Tommy- I opened the box and literally cried. It's such a simple and yet complex design, but makes so much sense. I wonder why other companies haven't thought of this yet! The metal used is so pure. The carbon is so stiff. The TKX-10 Deck and TKx-10 Spool would make any CAD designer jealous. No wonder why you're so good!

I quit my job so I can be just like you. I'm going to build this car today, and get ready for the first track test tomorrow after mentally preparing all night. I may need sports psychology to handle how fast I'm going to be!!!!1

Would like a slipper rear spool for increased traction on low-grip surfaces. I hope there is enough slop in key areas as well.

Right now we are just getting the team kits out. Release date is Feb of 2012, website should be up soon. We have to make sure we have enough parts for suppliers. We are also working on some minor revisions that our team drivers are submitting to us, hopefull we can just incorporate the running changes.

Glad to have you on board. it has been a long and tiring process to get this kit done and out to some drivers for testing. I am glad to hear that you are impressed with all the design innovations can't wait for your first team report!

Interesting you said that. We are working on a slipper rear spool now, hopefull we can have it finished for the fall racing season of 2012.

As far as slop, we have used the highest quality products to construct our kits. We have managed to keep slop to a minimum. One area that we worked very hard on was the new 2 link steering system. basicly with the use of 2 links we can have more ackerman adjustments as well a bump steer and help protect the servo from damage with its center mounted design. Also provides perfect weight balance. Plus with less links, you have less overall slop in your steering.

I also saw someone ask about price.

Retail will be 649.99
Includes full kit, front and rear spools, front diff, extra TKR Caster spacers for up to 10 degrees of caster, optional rear hubs 1-3 degrees, roll center adjusters, and shock, diff, and dampening tube fluids.
