    Knowing Jerry, he probably already has the drawings for a replacement if anything comes out better than his current C11 / X25 lineup? His chassis have been on top since the C7, does anyone really think it won't stay that way?

    yes i have a pic but unfortunately for you guys im not too good on a computer. sorry. i did have it this past weekend at the florida state race and several people did get a chance to check it out. it is similar to the current model, the difference is the metal. it is by far better than anything ive seen from jk in a few years. stronger than the .030 c11, yet lighter than the .025. 3 different pan options. i think its crazy for anyone to doubt terry kelly and the resources he has. i know there is no pic here yet and i know i havent made it out of the southeast for a big race in a long time so maybe im a stranger to most. but last time i did show up for a race this is what happened... http://www.slotcartalk.com/slotcarta...ro-LMP-Results and this... http://www.slotcartalk.com/slotcarta...4-quot-results

    I can vouch for at least part of what Biscuit has told us. I was at the My Series Race in Melbourne this past Saturday and got a chance to hold the new Kelly chassis prototype for a few minutes. The "mule" that I saw had obviously been run but did not have a motor in it or axle and tires when I held it. It has the same wheelbase as the JK X25 but feels every bit as light as a C11 .025. I mic'd the center at .030 and the pans at .025 and noticed that the center appears to have a coating while the pans are plated.

    I have no idea if it will work or not, but it looks "racy."

    The test will be to see how it runs after a collision. I heard that it has survived some encounters with FCR cars, so maybe that's a good sign.

    Still, it might be a challenge to sell just because the old Kelly chassis was so bad in a wreck.

    If the pic is on your phone text it to someone to post.

    Surely you know someone who can get the picture on the net?

    So you didn't get a chance to run it.
