I think what you may have seen are drivers using the Teemu chassis which is more narrow, or some other version of a narrowed chassis, lowered shock towers, and Tamiya shocks. Many guys have been running these parts on their car for a while now.

I wasn't saying you're a fool. I was just simply pointing out some of the things that we are doing to the Mi2 that maybe mistaken for a new car. No offense meant.

That's the main reason. I'm still running the stock chassis too but I run the batteries in as far as possible as well as all the electronics to aid in transitioning. Most cars are leaning more toward the narrower chassis.

BTW Seaball, how is your project car coming along?
dude, how did you find out about that? we just cut a top deck for it last night. i've got to get a few more odds and ends machined and it will be a go.

man, i wish we had spoken about this at trackside last weekend (or two ago.), but i had figured you had enough on your hands. better yet, i wish i had it finished up by then, but i did ok without it.

so yeah, word travels fast...

Racers will run and sheep will be scared when the MI2 ver.C is unleashed upon the world. Seriously, he has been at it for like 2 months. All this because he hates Tc3s....
