Nice looking car, but to me it never inspires confidence in a new car when there is 5+ year old electronics, and dodgy wiring installed.

It cracks me up when some of the bigger manufacturers do this with promo shots. Old cells, way outdate motors etc

Sorry, these weren't the promo shots, Those will be posted very shortly. We were testing weight transfer as well as mounting locations for larger electronics. Remember, not everybody has the latest and greatest electronics. Needed to post something quickly this evening. I'm an engineer, not a photographer anyway.

I tested the original prototype and wanted to see what we were looking at for room to mount electronics. You can see by the pictures that you can mount just about any electronics in the car.

Dont mind the electronics. They have nothing to do with the overall performance of the car! The car is simply unbelievable!

Dont let my "old" electronics fool you. The car is good!

It looks good to me. And if I am not mistaken those are still very good electronics!

Eric have U tried this car with the New Associated front end. I saw on your site that customer supplies front end.
I just need to know because I'm thinking about giving it a try next season.

TVM-That is next on my list of things to try with this car. I was using the "old school" stye front end but thought that the car would be faster if I tried the NEW style.

If you are looking for something that is different but consistant, the Mx2 is the car to try out!!!

Let me know how car feels with new front. Right now I'm looking at the new Corally, but always looking until I buy.

Default Undefeated.

Well if this new one is as good as the outlaw, you will definitely have a winner.
I just finished running the oval series in N.W. Washington and can tell you that the Darkside 1/12th went 9/9 in mod and 7/8 in stock.
They just can't be beat. The one night in stock I broke.
Thanks for the great car, Eric.
It's just to bad you sold 4 others.
Especially to the DEVIL.

I just went on the Darkside website and I was wondering if I read it correctly. Does the conversion kit INCLUDE the lowered aluminum pod pieces? The price seems like a great deal compared to some of the other manafacturers kits.
