For the first time on R/C Tech (and definitely not the last) we have full driver/sponsor information for all seven of the A-Mains:

I will double check, but I think Andrew Cartwright runs a Keyence ESC, unless he changed within the last couple of weeks.

Wasn't Tosolini using Fukayama batteries?

Does anyone have the Flack guys setup from Foam Stock Sedan?


Later EddieO

Default PARMA Alpha

Yes they make an Alpha. It is super low in the front compared to the Losi or Protofrom Alpha. Most cars you have to mdify the front shock tower in order to get it mounted correctly. That is what I saw and heard from Kyle Gannon a while back.

The PArma Alpha made its bebut at the Novak race and got off to a great start by TQ'ing MOd Sedan!! Sweeeet!! Parma brought a bunch for S&N TRackside to sell so it was available to anyone who wanted to race it. I think there were Parma Alphas in stock Sedan A, Brushless Sedan A, etc. It did great for its first race!!

I cannot wait to get mine this week or next so I can start running it. But like I told Paul and Kelly from Parma-I love the Parma X20 body-so now I get a choice at races.

On our old X20 body to get it as low as possible you could modify the shock tower but on our new Alfa it fits great without any modifications. It also fits cars for rubber tires and foam tires. The body is super stable and still has steering and straight away speed. Thanks to all that tried the new body. Everyone liked it that tried it. The part # is 10089.

How's the parma alpha differ from the losi or protoform varieties?

Most people said it was a nice in between of the Losi and the Protoform, i.e. it was more stable then the Losi but had more steering then the Protoform.

Cartwright was using an LRP Quantum.

I missed Toso's battery, it is fixed now. Sorry about that.
