I have some bad news about the I-Force chassis. Effectively today, we will no longer be selling new kits with the silver carbon fiber. We will be changing to black carbon once the stock on hand is exhausted, same thickness, same design, same everything. We will continue to support the silver chassis that have been sold with spare parts for the long term future. The silver carbon fiber material has become VERY hard to obtain in the very recent past.

This is a situation that is simply out of my hands and I appologize for that.

Mike you can race the pink car, I my self have got 3 silver Mx2's and 2 black, so I should be able to keep me in parts till next season!

I have had better results with the silver chassis on our track in stock than the black. I know there is less stiffness in the silver, but it really seams to work for me!! Darkside told me about the silver issue before, so I picked up one of the original chassis from him.

I've also seen the 007 Hanes chassis and I like it. Maybe I can do better in 19 turn with it next season!!

Now if I could get the arrive and drive in the I-Force, I could have some fun this summer!!!

Ok Guys, here is the second pass at the set up sheet. I have most items solved, forgot the servo mount and toe in/out. Let me know if there is something else that I missed.

Ok guys, this has been viewed 20 times, and NO FEED BACK??

I'd like to get this done, and then it is off to work on the instructions.

Thanks

Guilty as charged

Looks pretty good...haven't had a chance to use it yet. Maybe this weekend racin' with the ND/MN posse at the PKC.

The only thing I'd change is maybe leave the "driver" line blank. Most of us probably don't even need a "driver" line, but those who do would probably rather enter the name of THEIR driver.

Hey I left my name on it so if it is JUNK - Then I'll take the blame.

Let me know if it works. I'll get the PDF version to Darkside for his web site, and maybe post it here.

Ok so when I ship your Lathe back with motor parts, I'll put in some driver name decals. When you are driving poorly, shall we say, you can point to the sticker and say it's his fault!!!
