After three years and only 10 races it is time to retire the old 321 car in favor of something lighter, smaller, and hopefully more comfortable.  This one measures at 8 ft long (which is over 2ft shorter than the old car) and will have full suspension.  Fitting everything inside such a small package may prove a challenge especially as I intend to stick with lead acid batteries.  (Although the Open Class is getting kinda lonely in this part of the world as Advanced Battery takes off)

Got my suspension on.

Using a sliding pillar style on the front and a more traditional

swing arm on the rear. It's only about an inch of travel but

hopefully enough to keep me from feeling beat up at the end of the race
