    There was a post in here somewhere, I believe by Bill, on using optical mouse sensors to build a relatively simple and cheap, vision-based slip angle sensor. Shame I cannot find it anymore.

    So, day 1 is past now. Any updates/hashtags/lists?

    P.S. Nice to see Z around and (what seems) involved with design. Does that mean we are getting your awesome detailed insights once more Z?

    Tim is right; Drexler has provided a VERY detailed CAD to us, however I believe part of the agreement was not to share it with any 3rd parties.

    Fully agree with you Claude, in all but one; manufacturability and reduction of spare parts inventory for the sake of cost reduction totally makes sense as an argument, as long as the team...

    Would second that, especially Chassis Design. Nevertheless, I would be very interested to take a look at the Mola book, just for the sheer pleasure of reading something "new"

    FSUK was interesting to say the least. Big players boycotting, different ruleset and mixed classes already make it different than most FS events, which IMO is a bad thing. If this continues to grow,...
