I think it works fine in its present state, it's just that they're preppingit for an american release and probably tweaking the instruction manual an other things. What's funny is that many rc enthusiasts end up buying cars straight from japan anyway so to me it's not a big thing but then again i'm not a huge business.

[email protected] Adrian. Funny.

Just like over here, we want to throw things at the PC screen when software installation offers the language "english (US)" as the only option!!!

Well, Happy Birthday me! My fiance has just ordered for me the Mission Carbon Kit, and a Team Orion Core Stock RS motor, so I should have it up and running in time for the first meeting of the season, on Feb 22nd (I think)

*bounce*

Where's that delivery guy? The order was placed 5 minutes ago now!

Win and Office XP offers English (US) and English (UK).

Its great working for a British company...I can swear in the Queens English and sound really polite at the same time...lol...and there are oh so many more great words that dont appear in Hugh Grant movies!

hi guys,

Debating my next car (nitro 1/10 sedan) and am considering, among others, the Fusion R12 as it appears to use many of the same suspension parts as my Mission. Any of you have experience with this one?

can't tell you if the parts are interchangable, I know some fusion parts fit the mission (front bulkhead) In aus the fusion isn't a popular car i dont know why does it get results over there?

All the suspension pieces are interchangeable except the upper arm mount, it's wider.

Shocks and drive shafts are also common. The major diferences are the drive train/diffs and chassis.

PW has TQ'd and won every FORGASS State race he has entered with The R12. A TQ and second at our regions was due to a cross threded plug and an 11 lap later start, still got 2nd!

He was also faster than Barry Baker at a local race by 2/10th per lap until a glo plug vibrated loose and and he had a 191 second lap. He un lapped him self past Barry 5 times to finish 3rd.

Adrian- Everything is almost ready. I've been slacking a bit. All that's left is the shocks. I'll let you know how it went after the racing on Sunday.

Adrian-- I didn't get to run the car this weekend as I didn't think that I'd have enough time to run two classes and announce. I'm done racing until the new car comes out.

STLNLST,

How'd this weekend's racing go? Couldn't make it due to some family stuff.
