All the new truggies have seen a little extra length on the wheelbase and all the guts have been moved towards the center and pushed forwards. Looking foward to seeing the new Mugen truggy too.
O ya, I feel pretty strong about the balance thing..... The D8 drives so different, but its a good thing whatchu been up to?

Tony, I have been staying busy and wanting to get some racing in. We have been pounded with horrible weather for the past couple of weeks. Looking forward to getting this D8 buggy dialed in.

Ok, now that the D8T is out on the website with chassis photos, I guess I can post a couple pics of Travis' for discussion purposes... Sorry, but I didnt want to offend anyone and release pics early of it. But I had to grab a couple for my own reference. These are pretty good shots of the chassis layout and his setup from the Airtronics race...

I was just telling my partner the same thing.... after seeing that, I'm really thinking we will see this thing in in March for sure.
