Keep up the good work Jason!! I for one have always been drawn to the more innovative car designs over the regular mainstream cars. I prefer to race something different and "outside the box"!!

I am looking to release this car as pretty much an exotic 1/12 pan car. Origionally i was looking to compete with the lower price of some competitors but changed my focus onto high quality parts and to be exotic. All 1/12 cars out have been made to be inexpensive and simple. I am looking to bring my car to a level that has not been seen in this class. I do not have the typical top 10 running my car so I cant play the big race result game that companies use to market cars. I have always tried push quality and innovation to market my cars. Some people appreciate it, and some just follow the big race results. Im not going to sell as many cars but i am always confident in my products and from an engineering standpoint, we want to keep bringing new and innovative designs to market. We may not win big races but many other companies do who did benefit from our innovations. Look at WGT, BMI started the new latest and greatest electronics configuration that everyone runs 4 years ago. I cant tell you how many companies mocked it and said it would not work. I guess now things are different.
The car sounds amazing. Safe to assume a WGT utilizing the same innovations is in the pipeline?

I heard from people who drove the old dual arm adjustable front end on the CH12 that they had issues with the settings changing over the course of a run since set screws were just threaded through CF which loosens on the threads over time (I have the same issue on my V-Dezign with the tweak screws). You doing anything to address that?

I really liked the concept of the CH12 front end, and hope this new front end does away with the inconsistent nature of the old one.
The front end i am doing now doesnt use that spring style any more. It would hold great as long as the flex plate didnt crack when threading them in. I greased the screws and never had issues. The front end on my car was consistant. The strut front ends were the only ones i had problems with as the springs collapse and the variance in the molded parts.

That is correct. WGT wiil have the same platform but will be pre drilled for a strut front end in case anyone needs to change for a ROAR race.

Hi Jason. Any chance this car will use metric screws and nuts? Would be great for touring guys wanting to move to 12th scale. Just a thought...

Since you deal with bsr aren't the now doing those z4 offset wheels? If so have you thought about running the z4 offset hubs and tires on this car. It makes for a more "true" spinning wheel.

I am having prototype springs made for the front shock so I can see how they feel. Once completed, I will get full production running. It is cool to see such a tiny shock that feels just as good as the center shock. These things are literally less than 1/2 the size of the center shock.

Hope it's not as hard to build. Getting 2 to match for the rear of the spyder was a PITA.
