Today was my first F1 race since the PNWC finals, and boy did I wish that I had the tri-shock. I got to check out Matt Wards setup, and it looks and feels great. I cant wait to get mine I will definitely pre-order at least one more set... Are you planning to do another batch in the future?

BTW, I won the East Coast Districts F1 class today at Maj's Hobby Shop I ran the harder CF t-plate, and wanted a little more lateral stiffness, which is exactly what this part does. It also allows you to dial out the dreaded tweak issues that the F1 chassis has. I cant wait!!! This would be perfect with the FRP t-plate option. Im stoked. I cant thank you enough for producing the parts that you do for this chassis.

Im with Eugene. Got to look at it. Very simple but looks very effective and doesnt take up much space.

Unfortunely my EAST COAST DISTRICTS F-1 race ended with steering failure. Up till then, i was sitting for a sure 3rd place in the a-main starting grid.

Here are some good pics of the Tri-Shock. This setup is great, anyone who has used a tri shock on a 02/03 knows how good they are and the advantages they have. Now you can have all that but on a chassis that truly needed it. Traction is better, tweak is gone and the handling is very consistent.

That looks beautiful. Well done Marcus for hiding the cantilever hinge as well! I actually can't figure out where you've put it, I can only guess from the shock angles.

Just had a look at the very nice tutorial on your website -- well done!
Looking at the picture, it seems that the board is the shorter MR-03 board ---will this work with the MR-02 2.4GHz board?
Also, I have a Ferrari body that has been trimmed quite a lot already --- will this work or will this simply require way to much trimming?

thanks in advance

i have an 02 board on my car and that is what it was designed around. on the ferrari body you will just have to more clearancing, if its already got holes in than it wont be a big deal!! on teh Macleran body you just have to clearance for the shock screws.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
My Ferrari body already looks like swiss cheese, so more trimming is not an issue.
A final question: pictures have seen all have the Mantisworx T-plate; Does the system allow to keep the regular side plates and (most critical) the metal hinge for the battery cover?
In all instances, I will put my pre-order in tonight....

Rene.

you know what, i honestly do not know about the metal hinge, i havent had one on my car for over a year!! maybe EMU can chime in on that one. the side plates will work but not recommended, the side plates do not have a swivel point therefore the cantilever arm will not function properly.

It looks like the metal clip for the battery door cannot go on with the tri shock. The two screw holes are directly under the shocks so you couldnt put nuts on them and there is nothig else to attach to. you ma be able to glue or epoxy it in place under the tri shock assembly but I cant say for sure.
