In other words ban the 1/12th sedan bodies. Remember guys- scale realism is back

True Mike, True, I don't know if you guys heard about Active Hobby from Jap.
they have the same type of Belt system and layout but they decided to put
scale bodies on them instead of the rc racing bodies and its working good,

I think most of the ABC mini scale bodies are for 208mm wheelbase, the VM2 is 210mm if I m not mistaken....Will those fit? Or maybe the VM2 has an adjustable wheelbase that can be shorten to 208mm...

Dammit, I wanted to go there just to see the VMII. An impulse-buying buddy of mine loves m-type electrics, carbon fiber, and blue anodized aluminum. He was going to come with me and I could almost guarantee he would've gotten one.

You wouldn't happen to know if they will eventually carry parts for the VMII would you? As far-ranging and convenient internet shopping can be, sometimes it can outright suck.
Sure would be nice to have one of these with a big "Cup Eracer" decal on the hood. I'm sure Chris Dodson would get a kick out of it.

Chris is going down.I will do it with a Silver can motor too.He runs 17.5 and he will need more then that.

As far as parts,I would imagine when they become more available,HT SJ will carry whats needed.

Will this lovely kit come 80% assembled like the cars from ABC? I am really considering buying a ABC car, mainly because it is 80% built. People with really busy schedules can really appreciate this feature.
