So other than steering servo area get narrowed, there are no placement change on all the mounting?

Yes, all the mounting points are the same.
They only took a way a bit of material to even out the flex.
So you can have a 2010 car within 10 minutes if you know how to work with a dremel.

DS,

Just wondering how could your car perform without the 200+ ballast that bring it back to the racing rules...Probably your outlaw NT1 will be a real performer.
Keep us posted about the tests...

I'm planning to try that for a day, after I have tested everything for the first nationals.
The clubraces don't have tech. inspection.
But I think only acceleration will improve, cornering will stay the same or will be worse because the 200 grams is under the battery and behind it, right against the engine mount, so basically in the lowest and most central point of the car.

I was actually planning to run the car today because they forecasted some sunshine, but it is all cloudy right now.
Hope the weather will be better this weekend, really want to run the car but there is no point in it if temps are below 5 C.

It makes sense...probably you'll have an "electric feel" out of turns...and no benefit at the apex.
Sad about the bad weather...down hear in Brazil we are now close to 40 Celsius...melting the track.LOL

Ok 40 Celsius is a tad too much.
Would love to move to a somewhat warmer country/area though, Australia or California or something.
I'm not made for all this cold, snow and rain.

But on the other hand I now have time to paint and finish up my R5-N body.

Careful not to use too much paint. Or it will weigh too much!

Well, I'm actually testing a new 'lightweight' paint, but I know why it is a lightweight paint, they forgot to add any color to it.
Need 4-5 coats to get the fluo. yellow to cover, where I need 1.5 with the Tamiya paints.
Even black stays translucent.
It might work when you just spray the car white.
