Barry Obler talking with some interested new racers. Scott Corwin on the left and the fellow on the right bought the new kits and are listening to Barry's description of how to build the new kit. The kit includes instructions, but also lists the website which includes photos of the build process. A big thank you to Bryan Warmack for designing/producing this great new D3 chassis kit. And to Philippe de Lespinay for producing the online building tutorial. Thanks guys!
Barry Obler building the new Warmack chassis kit as Scott Corwin looks on.
Barry is well on his way building the first Warmack kit onsite at BPR 1-27-2008
Barry along with Paul Sterrett discuss new Warmack kit with Tim Hould.
Tim is asking Barry and Paul about the new kit and what variations can be built.
Paul points out some possibilities. Although the new Warmack kit is intended to help "newbies" to build a D3 chassis, the kit can also be built by more experienced racers with a touch of customization.
Tim lays out some of the kit parts. The new chassis kit includes all the chassis parts and needed jigs, but does not include motor, gears, tires, axles, guide flag. Those can be purchased from your local raceway, BPR or Electric Dreams.
Tim and Barry have a bull session trying to outdo each other as far as who is further along in building their new kits.
If your wondering what the new Warmack chassis looks like when completed, here's an excellent example. It's a pre-production version slightly modified.
This Warmack kit chassis was fine tuned by Tore Anderson for last week's LeMans coupe race on the BPR king track.
Tore removed a small portion of the front end of the chassis and some of the side pans to lighten the chassis for the fast Gerding King at BPR.
Tore proceeded to set a new qualifying time of 4.32 sec. for the LeMans Coupe class.
After setting a new coupe qualifying time, Tore proceeded to win the race!
Now that's quite a testament to this new Warmack chassis. It doesn't get much better than this! D3 racing continues to innovate with the emphasis on having fun by providing an easier way to build the chassis. Now, let's go racing!
