It is worthwhile having a closer look at that Lister story.
These are the basics of the new SPORT chassis as I understand them from an interpretation:-
1) This chassis will only be available in SPORT versions.
2) All future SPORT cars will have this new racing chassis to distinguish the SPORT versions from the standard cars.
3) The motor is the same as current SPORT cars.
4) Cables will be silicon.
5) The subframe is fixed with a single screw.
6) The subframe is fitted to a rubber block so that it is springy relative to the body.
7) The extent of this movement can be adjusted.
8 There will be a whole new range of pinions and crowns to provide a total of 21 different gear ratios and they will be in different colors for ease of changing.
9) These will screw fit.
10) A range of special magnets will be made available just for the SPORT version. There will no longer be a button magnet.
11) A range of axles, wheels and bushes will be available.
12) Tools will be available to help with the changing of these parts.
13) Parts that are considered to be breakable and fragile on the body will in future be made of rubber.
14) The motor is offset in the car to make the driver detailing easier and to reduce any compromise with the look of this particular car.
15) Parts will be available seperately from the RTR car as sold. It will be entirely up to the racer how he wants to set the car up for a race.
16) Existing models will not be updated to have the new modified chassis but it is envisaged that the new performance parts will be able to be retrofited.
17) This car will have Xenon lights.
18 The screws that hold the body to the chassis have been designed to permit you to provide adjustable body movement realtive to the chassis.
I have one word to say.
