Revision 3 Corner braces were added on all corners withing the conpression area to limit the bending of the long side frame tubing. The car jack was rotated 90 degrees after testing the handle movement with a prototype. The electronics box was moved to the top of the system for easier accessibility and more practical wheels were used than the previous ones. Additional bolts to secure the electronics box were added.
