Glad to hear that! I just tore down your old car for parts. Nice build! Not one stripped screw! Thanks Again! I'm really curious what the new car will have different. I guess that's part of the allure of a new car. Generate excitement. Although we got another 6" of snow last night. Hard to get too excited about racing right now...

I'm pretty sure the 748 will have the brake at the back as its big brother. Can't wait for some pictures.

Just don't forget about the three corner rule.. I just want to get out and burn some fuel! Last year we got a late start because of the rains. This year I'm worried about all the temperature changes and the track needing some Extra love. Regardless, the first time I pass you're Natrix, you'll hear about it!

Update. I am told they are releasing it in late May. We can expect to be able to get it early June at the latest. Would be really nice if that was an April release....

In other news I am told that a few of the major changes are new chassis and new radio plate. I believe the hubs are changing also. I am also told that most of the plastic such as Arms and such should remain the same as the 747. We shall see.

I heard from a good source, the bulks are gonna be a little different and the chassis is changing. But this is all speculation, lets just wait and see. Cant wait to try out my new 747 (new to me 747).

I think the sliding weights are probably the best innovation I've seen in the sedan for the past 10 years! Good thing they are keeping a good thing. There was a race where all I adjusted all day was those sliders and I took home the bacon! No need for antirollbar changes and all that understeer!and the other teams are still not immitating the sliding weights! Why????

Yes it is surprisingly effective. Even a small 5mm adjustment makes a big difference! I like the fact your pitman can easily adjust it during a practice run quickly so it's easy to compare settings.
