It's a strong possibility

We will definately have the Stinger trackside at the KO this weekend, it probably won't get a run as it isn't built yet, but with 20 heats there should be plenty of time between rounds to get it built. Looks like the Wrexham National round will be where the cars get their debut ...fingers crossed

But the R3CE's we are running seem to be pretty sorted at the moment, one will definately be at the sharp end this weekend, another if the thumb is removed from a**e

I bet he is working long hours at work right now. He is normally around but sometimes when his work is busy he's not seen for a little. Hold tight boys as he will be back.

Ok guys, back from racing and got some pics of the Stinger for ya. 1st impressions....mmmm smaller box
Good quality..as per usual, chassis seems to have lost weight, its a lot narrower than the prototype ....more on that later.
Car just falls together, very easy to build. This one was put together as a demo, so no chassis filing or fettling done...yet!

And interestingly enough, built box standard except for Titanium screws (although didnt have enough to do the whole kit ) alloy drive hexes and some bling Titan wheel nuts.... with vectra shell car came in at 1516 grammes!!!.

More later

Hi Gazza,

Good to see the car assambled .. now it just need to hit the road
The motor looks like it's hanging somewhat high in the motormount, but that might just be the angle of the photo ??

It would appear that the motor is indeed looking quite high, but the flats on the epic can give a somewhat false impression. The outer servo mount is now quite interesting now the chassis is narrower , not a huge issue but will need a bit of work.

The rack steering is very smooth even with the plastic bushes, bearings could make it even better too, although the R3 dust shields may need to be trimmed to fit. Nice to see they have sorted the ackerman angles now (see pic) and this should give all the steering you need.
We checked a HPI diff, didnt fit, but a Yoke one was very, very close There are 4 shims for the standard diff now which is pretty heavy in it's standard steel form Nice to see some lightweight ones on the options list. Reckon that you can get the car to around 1420 gms raiding the options list, including lightweight shell and with 3700 fitted.

That would be 7054 AL - Aluminium diff halves off the Stinger options parts list

Default Belt Drive Stinger

I hear that there is a belt drive conversion aimed for the mod drivers, is this true - has anyone got any pictures of this?

Speedway Pal are rumoured to be working on a version of the Stinger, and with a belt conversion option too. I believe it's will be out around November, although Dave may have the inside hook on this one.....
