Sorry I didn't realize there was a question on this thread I could answer.
Paul was the only X - 5 driver at the Nats. He had the very first production-molded graphite chassis. There was a minor problem with the chassis (two ejector pins in the mold were too long -- they're fixed now) which gave us some problems that meant we couldn't concentrate on set-ups and racing.
The car finished every battery pack it ran except one early in practice. Paul finished all four qualifiers in the mid-20s, qualified 28th and finished 27th.
As I write this Paul is finishing work on www.4wdrc.com
with photos of the graphite chassis, and lap times from every lap, practrice, qualifying, and the main. When he kept it off the pipes, the car was fast.
We still expect to have the kits finished and ready to ship about the end of this month.
Next race for Paul and the X - 5 will be the Hot Rod Hobby Shoot-Out.
