Yup. I remember everyone commenting back then that the front end was a copy of the Delta front end with new upper links or something to that affect.

I had a switchblade, then used a CRC gen X, and an associated L4. The Switchblade front end was simply brilliant - yes - needs a bit of skill to set up, but was just so damn nice to drive

Sorry for the delay. I have been very busy with other work so I had to take a short break for the car. I should be back on it this week again.

Default THE NEW 1/12TH BMI CAR

This designed is for corner speed so you can accelerate a great deal faster based on the suspension system you layed down in the frontend...this car would be awesome on asphalt.

That way, by the time I can afford to race again, this car will be new still
