The attached pics are of my local track when in good condition. It's actaully just been closed down by the local council recently and we are in the middle of re-locating to a new premesis.

As you can see we started to use some astroturf because Australia is in a bit of a drought water-wise, so we aren't allowed to water the track much.

don't get me wrong i really like the car so far, some great design features, and it does look to go well. look foward to more videos etc. i'm just not convinced with the wing mount as it still looks to be the same as the old cats had

Is it just me or does the windshield look like a guy going bald?!?! Sort of like a receding roofline

[rant] I really hope they don't release it with that wing mount though. Out of all cool new things in the car, and the only thing to bring forward, it has to be that horrible wing mount.... Screwing into some random device to hold a rubber band which is then wrapped around another part, supposedly to save the wing....

How many more components can you use to make a basic assembly?

I was fed up for years constantly having find very large o-rings and elastic bands to replace the broken bands. Instead of very rarely breaking a wing, how did it get decided it's better to constantly break bands? If the kit does come with it, I will just end up epoxying the parts together and turning it into a normal mount. [/rant]

Seriously awesome photos of the buggy Jimmy. You have shown a great deal more of the car than the official release pics.

Thanks Jason, I didn't really have much time but I tried to show everything I could think of and tried to explain it all in words
The wing mount I've never seen before - the newest Schumacher I have EVER owned or driven is a procat and I think that had a wing wire mount. It seems incredibly fussy to use the orings - these days screwing the wing on seems to work perfectly well, and replace the wing when needed (since for many it acts as a rear / roof bumper also.
