A bit more done.




Revised front end with Hossack style suspension,the trail and wheelbase doesn't alter under compression.
It's still a bit crude,but I want to see how it works before trying a 1/5 slimline version.

There's a practice event on April 11.
We're doing a demo at the airshow on Saturday May 8 and the main event is on September 11 and 12 th.

That particular rear tyre 30 shore compound has not been tested yet.I've also got 40,45,60 and 80 shore tyres ready to test,the 30 shore feels the grippiest so I'm hoping it holds up,but I'll try the others anyway.
