the new prototype will have newly redesigned pods and slightly altered suspension.the new rear suspension has proved itself to give the progressive spring tension of a T bar when twisted and only relies on the center shock for compression.i think this will put an end to the long lasted link vs. t bar debate.it will give you the best of both in 1 package.

another high point of this car that i forgot to mention is its battery placement.it is adjustable and offers a more rearward battery position of any car on the market for the most possible amount of steering and allows you to move them forward also for a more toned down feel.i am working with IRS with this kit and will be including there new nickle teflon coated shock,axle,battery locator plates,and 7075 aluminum hard coated front and rear pivot balls.i will be including boca bearings in the kit also.all this and i am still shooting for the 200 or less street price.

Hi Jason I am sure someone has asked you this question before but I just cant seem to find it anywhere on here so here it is LOL do you have any plans on doing a chassis for the Corally RDX ? A couple of racers here in Maine have your chassis kits for the cyclone and are raving about them. Some other racers around here that have used your chassis on thier x-rays, TC3's and TC4's have said many good things about them so it sounds like my RDX would benefit greatly from having a BMI chassis under it.


thanks
Jim

hey buddy,

unfortunately i made a deal with rob michael from corally USA that i would not compete with him with his 4mm chassis.being that i make the 4mm chassis for him and we are good friends,i didnt want to step on any toes.i realize i could have sold a ton of them by now being the interest expressed to me in emails and over the phone.i just wanted to keep things on a friendly basis.im glad that the guys are liking my kits up there though.i really wish i could help you out buddy.
