It's nothing major. Just variants on platforms that already exists.

Of course an M08 could easily be a variant of the M07 chassis . . . . :-)

For F1 why didnít we just use any 25.5 roar approved motor? The different legal 25.5ís hsve all been as close to each other as possible. We have a variety of motors running in our F1 class snd have a different winner each week.

The rest of the rules look great, love the fixed timing motors in the rest of the classes. Our 13.5 and 21.5 TC classes using those motors have been growing and have close great racing.

Since I am old I may be wrong. But, I think there was a part of the 2018 TCS F1 rules that the motor would be the same for two years. I agree with you.

I know that 1 of the 2 reedy motors was from at least 3 years ago, it was not a roar approved motor and that 1 was supposed to be in place for 3 years. That one is out of production now and the reedy roar motor was added. The original had the bigger rotor as well.

The RIDE tires we used at the FINALS worked out really well. I really like them. For me it really made the M-Chassis cars a lot of fun to drive in all the test driving I did. We will eventually migrate to them, but I first need to make certain I can supply them consistently.

you will not have the 3rd body in your inventory, if you read page 14 there is a new product announcement in regards to the additional body.
