Congrats to Collin Martin taking 2nd and Vinny Cafazzo taking 3rd at NERR this weekend on 413 Raceways 110' hillclimb using the Stalker. I took the win and the stockcar championship with this chassis. All three cars were built by me. Thanks again to everyone choosing to run the Stalker.

I have received some feedback about the steel guide tongue being too soft in some cases.  So I went ahead and made some new ones from 1095 spring steel.  These are .032 thick and are the same shape as the steel, just with no chauffeuring. These are also .4 grams lighter so you may need to add a little weight to the front of the Fang.  The blueing may come off when soldering depending on the type of flux you use.

I am offering free replacements for anyone who purchased a kit who would like one.   I am also offering to replace any guide tongues on the Stalker and Fang chassis I have built for anyone.  Please send me the chassis only (no wheels, motor, guide, etc...) and I will install a new one free of charge.   Please message me here to get your replacement.

Here are some results on the Stalker at RP8.

Congrats to Jordan taking the win in the E-main, Gary Clinton Jr. 2nd in the D-main, and Collin Martin winning the B-main. I grabbed the 2nd spot in the A-main. Gary and I used the full pan version without the rear stops. I also TQ'd with this version. Collin and Jordan ran theirs with the rear stops.

Thanks to everyone who chose to run the Stalker at RP8.

Some minor updates to the Stalker.  The front uprights have been slotted to allow for different size jig wheels.  A channel was added behind the guide tongue to help hold the 1/16" tubing in place when installing the center weight.   The channels for the pin tubes are now round to better cradle the pin tubes during installation.   I updated the tutorial for the build as with adding the channel behind the guide tongue for the center weight, it will be necessary to use two pieces of .047 wire instead of .062 on the center weight to align the tubing to the nose.

Dom,

the one that you built for me last year was a winner (if I hadn't messed up in heat five). I can't wait to race it again when I get home.

a truly excellent chassis, worthy of the name Dominator.

I put the Stalker into the A-main to finish 2nd over all. Vinny Cafazzo and Chris "CD" Davis also qualified into the A-main. Congrats to Peter Lentros and Robert "Woody" Hazelwood for going 1-2 in the B-main. Peter and Woody both ran Dominator built Stalkers. Congrats to Larry Labounty winning the C-main with a ready to race Stalker and Bob Blanchette taking the 3rd spot with a Dominator built Stalker. Thanks to Bob Hughes, Larry Cyr, and Gary Clinton Sr. for choosing to run their Stalkers.
