Re: BBT Extreme 43% Edge w/DA200 on PIPES!!!

WOW - what a night!!

Some major progress to get caught up on via picture posting tomorrow AM

I got some serious weigh out of the motorbox! With the light motorbox, the combination of the lightened DA200 and the already lighter design of the Edge, I have no doubts that we'll be able to stay under 40lbs with some moderate lightening (nothing crazy)!!!!

A sub-40lb 126" Edge would be a rocket-ship with a Piped DA200 on the front
