What a beauty! The real car looks 100x better than the CAD drawings.
It will surely be an interesting car if the pricing is right!

Dennis!!!!!

Car looks nice. Too bad you aren't going to make it out here for the windup. Looks like this is going to be a good race. Chicky just sent me his flight info. How is my engine?

Yes alot changed, if you compare it to the red car I posted which is a full K factory car the new car looks quite a bit different. Still the low CG king.

One suggestion!

Make sure the team drivers come up with a set-up sheet and post all of their working set-ups. I'm sure its not not completely different from the old car, but when you move things around things change.

Those of you with the first E-Class, EVO II's and Mongoose's... Word is that there will be full upgrade package offered as well... I would say more about it, but I didn't start this tread and you know... One thing though, is if I was going into the new year, I would start with a fresh box kit... Everything there is brand new... So if you can get the full blown new kit, do that... While upgrading is a great way to go, you're still adding new to old... Hey, at least the possilbity is there to do it though. All the info about the upgrade kit should be out when the new car is released in 2-3 weeks and what companies will be carrying it... Oh and the price for it is still being worked out... but shouldn't cause to much sticker shock....

Then I guess the projected (projected on the high side) street price of $380 isn't too bad.

the car looks real nice, for the guys who have the g4e upgrading is the best thing they can do but for the guys with the mongoose or the evo..... i dont know if is worth the hassle (and cost), i mean is that much different? none of the changes can be considered a breaktrough, besides the steering system everything else is the same just have been repositioned, so little has changed that i beleve the performance would not be much different, maybee later on i'll do the upgrade to stay current but for know i'll wait, just my 2 cents.
