    I was wondering if anyone ever bought the rights or plans for the old superlites they raced in the M.T SERIES back in the day?

    Not that I know of.
    Briggs had two generations that were very competitive (the Gen 3 & 4 - the 4 was probably THE best).
    Ed at EEE had a couple versions - the dual a-arm front/rear (last version) was also very competitive, but didn't have the handling of the Gen IV Briggs.
    There was a company called Genesis that made either three or four cars.
    Honda Pilots were modded and raced (what I ran).
    There were a couple others that were involved in the first generation of MT racing but I don't have experience with them.

    I don't know if Bullnerd ever got his Gen IV into a computer or not but if you're looking at doing a Stadium Lite, that's the direction I'd go - get him to get you plans for one. It's an absolutely brilliant machine - the best single seat small car I've ever driven.

    Getting the jigs for the cars would be a good start.

    I'm only new around here but didn't Kfab have 3 Gen IV? They are like Golam and the ring to him so I know he must still have them?
    All dressed up and waiting for the beer to arrive.

    No, I sold them. bullnerd picked up two of them and oddypilots has the third.

    One day there may be a 125% larger version with a LOT more HP... Future dreams.

    I actually drew the frame pretty accurately in Bend tech....then my puter went bye-bye.

    Now my BT is out of date and I want to update it before I start again.

    Larger and laser cut/bend is what I want to do for an experiment.

    I tried getting Flyerider to draw it for me in SW, but he's pretty busy these days.

    Didn't Bob make a couple desert cars that were slightly larger?
