Design Update

Here is the new stretched carbon fiber chassis next to the old G10 chassis. The new one is 50mm longer in the wheelbase.

During my first couple of test runs, I had a lot of difficulty getting the car to track straight. It was tough to get on the throttle and get the car up to speed without the car getting very squirrelly. I decided to lengthen the chassis and make it out of carbon fiber instead of G10. The carbon fiber has much stiffer properties than the G10 and it seems like the chassis doesn't want to warp as it did with the G10. This lets the suspension do its job
