I'll let you know real soon. Having to much fun with my car right now, but tried Mike's car the other day and WOW!!.........

............... as of the set-up, stand by for that. I'm sure Mike is putting something together that would make that car complete.

When the car sits on a pitboard the pod / chasis meets flat.....when i pick it up from the center of the chassis, the middle will go up 1.5mm before the shock is fully extended.

Not certain about a "Haynes Edition" car, but here's what's going to be happening. I'm doing a run of car kits this week that will include the majority of the revisions that mike had on the car that he ran at Cleveland. Like Mike said, I will also be selling the revised parts on their own.

As is company policy, these new parts have been reverse engineered as much as practical to allow them to be adapted to older versions of the chassis. I'll be posting pictures of Mike's car in the website as soon as I get them from him (Hint, Hint), though he's probably still on the talk show circuit and busy signing autographs.

Good observation, there a couple of things that have been modified here. The first is that the there have been two additional sets of tweak spring holes added to the cross brace. This will now give three possible locations for the tweak springs. The first is the original set where the tweak springs sit on the trailing links. The second and third set of holes are further to the outside of the chassis and help the tweak springs provide more leverage onto the rear pod. When the springs are in these new locations, the springs bear directly down onto the carbon fiber lower plate, which has been widened in these areas. This has been done to help the car adapt to both light and heavy traction track surfaces. Additionally, the lower plate has also been beefed up around some of the pod place screw holes.
