Todd was layin down some sick fast times in sedan and 12 this weekend. I believe no one can say the Type R is not for real!! I really wanted this car after IIC and then watched the lap times from the Birds and now the Carpet Nats, this car is bad ass!!!

If only we could... you know... buy one. :-(

It does seem like Dumas and Hodge are consistently near the top, and always seem to have fast lap. Is it hard to drive fast consistently I wonder?

Well, I know it's hard to drive fast consistently, what I meant was is this car harder than others to be consistent with. Probably not, just trying to make something of the results we've seen the last few races. That's what happens when you don't actually have the car to play with yet. :-)

oh no, looks like Horizon changed the date to late March. I'm beginning to think this ghost car was built only for the team drivers. It's not vaporware cuz it out there, just looks like they're not planning to sell it. Or maybe they're waiting for the carpet season to start! Seriously thinking getting on the "be like everyone else and don't be different" wagon and get a xray. I know it's not Hodge's fault and I know he's tried of making excuses for the the bigwigs at Horizon.

Think I'm going to cancel my preorder.. Losi will gain a few customers with this waiting game but at this point they are going to lose more than they gain. I realize they want it to be right when it first comes out but they shouldn't have even mentioned it was to be released until the date was a little closer. As far as it being worth the wait... Nah.. I'm sure the car will be great but it's not going to make a mid pack A-mainer take TQ. Now that may be worth the wait but unfortunatley it all boils down to how we setup and steer these little toy cars with our fingers...

It is more of a Horizon thing then a Losi thing. Horizon is holding everything up due to the 8th scale stuff. So our sedan keeps getting moved back. The site has said late march for awhile now and the date on the dealer side says March 20. That is next week if everything goes to plan. So the wait would not be that much longer if that date holds true.

You already have at least one person that took a kit and assembled it to run it himself from the Horizon warehouse. So that means to me they are there and ready, just have to ship the damn things. Todd I believe is just as upset about the whole thing as us, but I believe his hands are tied on the whole mess.
