Not yet, it can be a running change once we actually see what the ars system is and how it will mount.

Please disregard the wiring.





This picture shows the countersinks and the bevel along the sides.

If I can find out where they are located, I will include them. I haven't see this in person yet. Hey Chris, do you have anything on this?

Very interesting. I would still like to know how it is getting mounted. Looks like there is at least one hole in the chassis prob more.

Looks like there is a a ball end attached to something like the center post, but just a little shorter. So prob just 2 extra holes in the chassis. Interesting...

Hello

I have seen one in the flesh, there are two holes one ether side, with a screw coming through the chassis with spacers then a ball joint.

Car looks great, very quick direction changes.

I still dont think that this will be a slap on part for the current xray. No matter what, people will have to purchase a new chassis with the holes or get the chassis drilled and counter sunk for the ars. Larry and I do not want to change the geometry of the car so Im not sure if we will do the holes before the actual announcement and release of the ars. Im sure that it can be a running change, especially if that suspension system proves to be faster (im not convinced).

Another great night of racing on the TTamale chassis. 3 of the 8 cars showed up had them installed. When conditions are causing cars to twist up in their flex, traction roll, or stop mid corner, this chassis just goes.

Larry is having family stuff to deal with so the release of the black version will be delayed until probably the end of next week.

I've been using this chassis for about a week now and have been quite pleased.

My impression is that the "feeling" lies somewhere between the Xray aluminum chassis and the graphite chassis. It flexes a bit more but still maintains consistency throughout the day and is about 11g lighter than the Xray aluminum chassis.

As an average weekend club racer I am often too lazy to make any significant setup changes during the race day to account for track condition variations so the chassis has been a pleasant surprise due to its consistent performance. Not only is it consistent but it has made for a very easy to drive car.

Finally, I look forward to the black anodized version. The chassis has been worth it.
