That looks excellent and I know the paint work will be first class. Looking forward to seeing this beauty in the flesh. Happy with the handling?w

I can't even get to my track at the moment so don't know how it handles

will have to send to the USA untested but I am sure it will run fine

all the basic principles have been applied as per usual

Thread revival, but this thing looks freaking awesome!

What "usual principles " were applied and how did it end up going?

I've seen your work in the Tasman series, David - this is no exception to that.... brilliant.

Interesting concept for the chassis...

I understand there are principles regarding gaining an edge in competition - can you reveal some of the philosophy in construction? happy if not.

 

frats,

Rosco
