So the guy that says an engine that sits right behind the front axle is nothing like a real car proves this by posting a picture of a 1:1 chassis where the engine sits right behind the front axle?

I took it that way, but after reading it a few times I think he was showing SSD isn't wrong in their placement. So I think he's saying SSD did it right. I think... LOL

Who's Josh? I only know the first names of a few people on this site and that's either because of their username or because I've talked to them via PM, Facebook or real life.

Harley said on his Scale News Update that the only gripe with the SSD chassis is the engine may be too far back for most bodies. I think thats who he was quoting but hey i could be wrong.

In case of any misunderstanding, please apply any misplaced mocking to the intended ridicule recipient of the initially incorrectly interpreted post.

Itís made that way to increase performance and allow for a wider use of bodies. And on most 1:1s I have experience with the engine sits back in the firewall so it is further back on the chassis. Why donít ya hold the comments until there are some videos of it.

I agree with you. Now, shouldn't SSD be commended for their efforts in releasing this kit?

"Dear SSD, I've been thinking about all the things I'd want in a builder's kit and decided to write them down and send them to..." WHOA!! There it is!
"P.S. I'd like to be able to buy it for no more than..." HEY, spot on!

Great job, SSD, this is for sure on the gotta have it, dammit list.
