It'll probably be at least a month before anything is ready. I need to get all the material ordered, as well as a bunch of other odds and ends tied up first.

will your leftover sw2's go on discount? Or will the SW3 be more expensive?

The SW2 isn't going anywhere, it'll still be available along with the SW3. Price is still up in the air at this time. Plus, I'm not allowed to discuss pricing outside the vendor's forum.

Thanks Tim.

I do send the raw blanks out to black anodize, then machine them. It makes the profile of the chassis and the logo really standout.

does the sw3 still have the same list of things you need to buy seperate to get it working, or does it need various other things, or does it need little else? i'm trying to figure out what i'll need for my first build, which i hope to be an sw3. i'm not talking about electronics,shocks,and wheels, i'm talking about what else you need in the way of misc. hardware.

I just changed our lowers to highclearance before the last comp. I noticed a big difference in hanging up. Definitely the way to go.

The parts list will be about the same. The only difference is the lower link length, they are shorter on the SW3 by about a 1/4".
