I have been reading your posts and they have been a great help in setting up the car.

Good stuff.

Don't hesitate to ask if you got any questions.

You're absolutely right. Were racing camper schemes.

Currently they have the Limited edition which features some nice optionals.
No big changes for 2011, all the time is invested into the 1/8 scale project.

Yes, I never liked the flame and skull thing. It might be a small car but that doesn't mean it should look like a hotwheels car.

It should be added to the website shortly.

It comes with the following optionals:

kevlar pulley
plasic bumper plate and plastic lateral brace -instead of carbon part-
front sway bar kit
long life belt
red shock spring

If you order the 2010 kit and put a remark with the order you would like the limited edition everything should turn out alright.

i still haven't received mine
I just finished installing upgrades on my TT-01 though. I might take it to a track for testing soon

A question for the wise: Why are they giving soft springs in the limited edition? I would imagine that a race car needs harder springs.

If I'm not mistaking the Limited edition kits will be shipped this week.
Depending on the shipping option you chosen you should receive it within 1-5 days.

Basically they made the car better suited for lower traction tracks. In the stock form (hard springs, stiff suspension parts, stiff chassis) the car is very very good on a medium-high traction track, but can be somewhat difficult to drive on the lower traction tracks.
The new parts (softer springs, plastic brace instead of carbon) will make the car work out of the box on the lower traction tracks.

I saw capricorn is offering two types of belts for roughly the same money.
The standard one and a longlife one. Hoe do they compare performance and durability-wise?
