    Is there a new Horky ES24 chassis out ? I saw a picture of the new 2012 Horky ES32 chassis but haven't seen or heard anything about a new Horky ES24 chassis since the 2010 edition...

    Yes there is a 2012 Horkey out. Got mine last week at MA. Mike K got one also.
    Why do I do this to myself?

    Don't think I did it right. Would have liked pics to be in post but this works.

    The new Horky looks very much like the 2010 Horky. The Anaconda is up and running spent Sunday getting all the wiring done just have to finish the lap counter and it will be ready to race. We ran some laps on it last night but 2 years of dust made it pretty slick . Today Steve Whitt will clean and glue Wensday night the new power supply and lap counter will be working and off to the race's

    Mic:
    Setting up and powering a track is like Christmas morning, you have to unwrap and set it up before you can play w/ it. Although I don't think you guys will get bored w/ it after 10 minutes. Congrats on the new toy.

    After looking at the pics of the "2012" Horky, and pics of the "2010" Horky on PSCR's website, I don't see the difference. Can someone point them out to me?

    Gary they are the same just retooled from the old CAD program. The 1/32 was the first recut indication as it is from an eairlier design with the front modified stronger. I think the only difference is probaly the steel and a couple of thicknesses here and there.

    If this was a magic trick - I would say you did it with mirrors.

    But if it's one of those "find the difference in the photo" games - then all I could find was the bearings in the one on the left.

    Do I win anything?

    The first thing that jumps out at me is the front of the side pans and the front of the center pan where it meets the side pans (I call them the "Wings") are different. It's hard to see, but it also looks like the outsides of the bite bar are a little different, and perhaps the bite bar itself is s touch thicker? That may just be the lighting though...
