Seems like the first quarter of 2015.

Although it would be great if he'd have them out in time for the holiday season! I've got a donor rig all set to go.

I got the rims going. Need to add laser cut beadlock rings next, cause it's easy and get it out of the way. The chassis kits will be, several laser cut Delrin designs, and the Goat, then the Specter. Then I will finish the Eclipse 3D chassis, then maybe make some trailer kits. The majority of the development is complete, but there are stocking and packaging to do and documentation for assembly guides. Then the website which currently is a gooey mass of randomly oriented 1's and 0's.

Except for skipping the laser cut beadlock rings, I'm on schedule. I've got the laser cut delrin chassis line progressing. Finish up kitting the 4 link chassis, the 6x6 chassis, and the Eclipse, then the Goat.

Sure I will update this. I'm a few days from releasing two, four link chassis kits. I'm gaining confidence on the semi style chassis and it will be an easy kit to put together. Due to the lackluster response for the Eclipse I may skip it and do the Goat next. The Specter, as cool as it is, is a major pain in the ass to build and work on. I have concerns with it's overall strength, as everyone wants to put sumo axles and miclaws and 3S lipo, etc. I am establishing my new companies reputation on some rock solid Delrin based chassis kits, then I will try the Goat, which is 3D printed, but as two parts with styrene standoffs, not an all one piece chassis. If it goes well I will consider selling the Specter.

hey now

in my defense, I only asked about the tuber because it turned DOA and it was my favorite chassis.

I'd still love it if you made that one Jim, but i get that scale parts and ladder chassis' are the bigger seller. just make sure you put me on the list if it gets resurrected

Ok, I have very good news. Everything is ready and the Specter kits will be available in a few short weeks. If all goes well, by the end of August. The frames will be made with nylon rather than acrylic, so there will be much less concern from using Sumo axles. It's also going to be much cheaper than I had thought. Thank you all for your ridiculous patience.

Nice. Just pulled my TT out of a box in the garage. It's ready for a new chassis!
