This car is A LOT more than what meets the eye. Me and a some others have put an enormous effort into making this car a current top perfomer! As to what we've done the list is long, but here are some highlights:
-Laser cut aluminium chassis with built-in kickup
-Steel laser cut front bulkhead brace
-3D printed and redesigned C-hubs, toe-in blocks, rear uprights, front bulkhead (with built-in ballast weight), suspension inserts, spacer clips, front bumper and so on...
-Redesigned front and rear carbon fibre shock towers
-Motor is lowered and moved more forward
-Lots of parts are removed for less weight
-Shorty battery, trimmed down plastic battery case for more weight placement alternatives
-Shorter & limited shocks
-Titanium turnbuckles and TRF ball cups
-All hardware is now titanium and aluminium (to save weight)
-Speedy's slipper eliminator & Kimbrough 32 pitch spur gear (much less weight & rotating mass)

The goal for this project was to make the car able to compete with the RC10 Worlds in indoor vintage racing on carpet surface. And we did succeed! It set a best laptime that was 1 tenth quicker than the RC10s in the last Nordic Vintage Challenge race (no 4).

Amazing work and a dream of mine to run my re-re Dynastorm against the sea of RC10 WCs at my vintage event.

You have a bigger smile than the guy that took 1st place, was he just too cool to be happy??

That is awesome, the stand is in the USA, means a better shipping rate for me. Thanks for that information link.
