hey guys,greg and i are going to do some time studies on the chassis and figure our material cost and labor.i am going to really try to tighten up so we can offer these things at the lowest possible cost to you.i got a little ahead of myself with the engineering and made it more exotic than i was origianally going to .the car is intense.it is 8 grams lighter than stock(just where i wanted to be.just enough room for using weights without getting heavy),it is incredibly stiff.i even suprised myself with its rigidity.its torsional strength is amazing.i feel confident to say that this may be the most functional electric chassis at any price.even due to the blue being slightly more flexible,once assembled and braced,you can not feel the difference.i based this design on the blue carbon fiber so it would exceed everyones standards.the black carbon,well,that was never a question,i new that would be more than stiff enough.the car is now stiffer than stock,batteries are about 1/16 of an inch away form the outdrive,battery slots are vented,45 deg.edge break to avoid cutting shrink wrap on cells,balanced and are also have adjustable front to rear positioning,its light,stiff,absolutely gorgeous,solid motor mounting,and very adjustable.i will try to keep the price as close to the mark as possible.i will post final prices on monday.thanks guys

Not one single bad remark from any of them , nothing but beautiful , man what a car , and is there more of these ...... Cliff lett even took a look and said it was a really good looking car . Cant wait till morning .....

The car runs just as good as it looks !!!!!!!! I beat my personal fastest lap !!!!!!!! Motor mount takes a little getting used to , but by far works better than any design i have ever used . All in all , I am very impressed !!!!! I also ran a 19 turn mod in it , and it was very consistant ..... No change in it due to heat or smacking the pipes. This car is awesome !!!!!!!!!

thanks buddy,we had the same results here.we had 5 or 6 people try the car who some dont even like the tc3 and they were all really impressed with handleing and that there was absolutely no tourqe steer.no matter what set up they used it worked.as you fine tune it lap time get faster.car was pinned to the track.car is very consistant and predictable.mission accomplished

i used the same set up as stock tub and it was awesome.i didnt have much time for trying a bunch of setups but i am going to during the week.the car seems to work no matter what you do to it.the only way i could tell improvements was by lap times and its hard to say if its the set up or me loosening up.i will try to find the optimum set up and let you know how it differs from stock.i can tell you this,it was alot easier to stay off the pipes. i ran 3 packs without touching the walls much.i was driving it hard too
