Sorry hadn't checked my own thread in a while but will make a point to do so from now on
Correct no 3D printed chassis or parts

Updates, revisions & further clarifications finalized & have been highlighted in dark red

Couple of general piece of info recently verified:
- Cars can be seen pretty easily even at fulll night setting with all facility lights off due to installed skylight. Contrary to previous statements those who might choose to install the weight penalty instead of headlights will have no problem seeing their cars during the race.
- 94mm GT gearings was comprehensively tested, if anything the lithium powered cars at their spec gearing are just a touch slower than nimh open gear.

Saturday before race day practice will be Free with pre-registration through rccarevents, sign up link will be posted very soon.
