If you are sponsored by a company, than tou have an obligation to run their product, period. That's why manufacturers need feedbcak and why other competitors keep new products secret. Even though a body might not be as big in the big picture, it is another sponsor. If you can't win with that product, switch sponsors (not the best solution) or give feedback, but don't run another product or it will be a slap in the face to your sponsor. From a business point of view, it is your job to make the product appear to be the best even if it is not. If you don't like it, don't get sponsored.

You are CORRECT!

I have had mine since last week and the more you look at it the more you see that's trick. Dale is a true mad scientist!

I do love all this talk about sponsorship. The rc industry is the most non-loyal sport I have been involved with. I personally have had the same sponsors since the day I got my first one. Even before I got sponsored by them I was running there product. (Wow, that sounds really dull!)

Anyways...If your sponsored, your sponsored. If that means you sacrifice a little or a lot at times, so be it. Because in the end, you get to take pride in being on top once again!

Besides, many sponsors, including my company, think it's almost more important what you do OFF the track, then what you do on the track.

Is it just me, or does that wing look really high? I hope you don't have to cut it down to be legal. Looks very much like a 2.0/Mazda cross with the entire cabin/cockpit moved forward and a bit more snub nosed front end (more steering )

I want one. Looks great. Hopefully it will work just as good on asphalt.

P.S. I just noticed that it looks as if the windshield is inset into the A-pillars. Could help channel air onto the winshield for more downforce.

I assume, and from what I can see the wing looks like it is higher than the roof line but in reality the side windows are very low where as there is almost a bump in the roof to make sure it is parallel with the wing.
Thus it is only an ilusion that the wing is higher than the roof.
At least I hope so, because I wouldn't want to cut the wing either.

Brian,

It's not high at all. The body is just SSSSLLLAAMMMEEDD!

Notice the slight "bubble" in the roof. It's 100% legal. Dale weighed it against "other" bodies and it is the lightest also.
Track me down this weekend at Trackside, I will be there Sunday.

Oh yea...mine were so hot off the press, they were numbered! The bad part is one of them was #13!!
