Any news on the PAL version ?
How much is going to be diff ... and is it gonna be a new car or just hopup parts ?

Is PAL going to make a thicker bottom (thinking carpet here ) ?

THe PAL version is still in the design stages..... I beleve that the PAL version will be a hopup...but there should be a limited kit version...
SO far from what I know is...

PAL carbon center shaft..(similar to team bomber shaft)
PAL Alloy rear diff
Light weight easy access diffs
Light weight carbon chassis... more than likely 3mm thick

Dave-

Petter is trying to contact you !!

So they are already working on an improvement.. guess the driveshaft is only for stock racing but the bottom and the bulk heads .. would be nice with easy access for changing spurs.. (don't ever need access for diff gears.. they'll last for ever)

I just sent Peeter a PM..

THe PAL shaft will be able to hold mod motors no problem... it`s going to be different than the 1st line of R2 PAL shafts..and basicaly the pal diff cases with be for easy maint. and light weight plus..easy spur gear removal..so you will more than likely see a slight change in the motot mount

I want to know too, especially comparing to the BD, especially when Dave said that the Stinger handle pretty much like a belt drive.

I Had a good outing with the car again last night... Here is the set up that I have so far.... it's for med-high grip

Front
Oil 40
pistion 1.2mm
Spring Rayspeed White
Stabilizer 1.2mm
shock tower ..1 in from outside
sus arm inner hole
ride height 4.5mm
rebound 4mm
Sorex 36R
1 deg camber
.5 deg toe out
inner upper camber link with 1mm shim under ball stud
Team Bomber Red inner

Rear
Oil 35
pistion 1.2mm
Spring Rayspeed White
Stabilizer 1mm
shock tower 1 hole in from outside
sus arm outer hole
ride height 4.8mm
rebound 5mm
Sorex 36R
Team Bomber Red inner
2deg rear toe block

Ride Accord Version"2"... or Mazda 6...

This set up has very good corner speed and is very easy to drive... if you want a bit more aggresive turn in switch to the Mazda 6

also broke my 1st part after 22 packs today......
1 steering knuckle..... seemed to break in the same spot as the Barracuda did..... but I have a fix for the Stinger knuckles that I will post in a day or two....... .
