Here's the first Micro Wedge video comparing it to the stock Micro. The suspension is set tight in the vid as I anticipated my new Micro Wheel Weight System and wanted to retain my spring stiffness for the added weight.

I will let you know, I'm trying to have most of my kits ready before Christmas...some stuff end of next week possibly

BTW, I'm doing an indoor vid today to show the advantages on obstacles around the house

Thanks!

I'm looking into CF right now. As for the price point for the kit as pictured here...I'm shooting for the $25-35 range for kit which includes sides, skid, body mount system, and links. All you will need is the Mini T Rod ends and your stock Micro to complete it.

Wow, good "proofing" in the video. The first day running it stock was very frustrating, but it's getting to be more and more fun all the time.

I'm workin on more vids today guys, and should have more info on these kits later on. There's a ton involved in turnin something like this around as fast as I'm attempting while maintaining my preferred price point, working double OT on this. Thanks for all of your interest and feel free to keep the feedback coming and stay tuned for more vids and updates. I did getthe opportunity to blow some guys away with this beast at the local hobby shop yesterday on their indoor micro course.

We appreciate the time and effort

It's just that if you're going to tease us, you have to expect us to rattle our cages a little.
