this thing is going to be the ticket in micro onroad, with the new wheel set up and the multi-flex technology carried over from the t2 line, it will be unstopable.

Aha, the message did come in in a strange way I could not answer.....

And yes, the car looks sexy but it will throw away the "above driveshaft motormount" I am using with great succes, time for Penguin to devellop a new upperdeck with this "patented" flex technology?
If it is patented I wonder how E.I.T.S. is dealing with this because they have an adjustable flex upperdeck as well.

I wonder how easy it is to tune the upperdeck, because i have the swivel and you can control the tension-side to side-movement as well. As far as i can see they dont need to come up with an answer since its already out.

Does anybody know if these new wheels have thicker material to compensate since there is not an inner wheel now? I would hate to bump somthing and crack a new wheel. I like everything they have done but I would like an optional bottom chassis with the batteries on the other side. Yea, I know; just dreaming.

Alfred, I think I remember your question about the upperdeck but was it more about tweak?

That will become more apparent once the car is shipped to be quite honest. Im sure xray has done their homework through the T2. If you like, I found the T2 setup book a great reference all around. It has a section of how to keep the vehicle from tweaking.. Mostly boils down to not tightening screws all at once. Think more like replacing the tire on your real car.

I haven't gotten to see them in person (just pics/diagrams), but I think we can be sure that this was thought of.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.....now i understand how you can make it stiff as a board to soft and plush. The file you posted really helped.

Another question i want to ask is that will we still be able to use shotgun style packs.....I can see in the pic that the style used are side by side cells. Because i can always stick a block of foam in between the battery and post.

Yes, the battery side has two different positions to put the stopping blocks specifically for this.

Thanks for quick reply buddy, that is good news since most of my packs are shotgun style. You dont by any chance have more news on the Pro do you.
