Nice timing ;>

You've seen that XRAY seems to be realizing that a less-rigid upper deck and no standoffs might be a better solution for asphalt/rubber? They released this new deck for a reason, I imagine.

the only thing they are missing still is that you need to have a stonger lower deck than they do to get away with a flexi top deck.quasi iso tropic carbon is a must when doing this to avoid tweak issues.the component grade does not have much memory and doesnt return very well.when you add flex it increases the chance for fatigue and cracking.the quasi isotropic allows you to have flex with less chance for fatigue.

The other thing that comes to mind is the Orion 4800 lipo pack. You should test fit one, to know whether that pack will fit in your chassis. It probably won't affect my decisions, but it's good to know whether or not it would fit.

Jay, I ran the R at the last state race, and after a few tweeks it was awesome, too bad I got struck by the dreaded Jaco tire peel....

I cannot wait for the next race...
