At first I was told by VBc that it will be released at the and of February...

After that they admitted there is some kind of delay but it will definitely be released in March.

I hope so..

Why don't you start an outdoor 1/12th class? I've raced 1/12th scale outdoors and it's a lot of fun!

You seem to konw something more about vbc 1/12

We usually have parking lot tracks so not flat enough for 12th scale.

That looks nice.

I wonder, will they make a conversion kit so I can update my existing L12

Me too, but just the pod parts, and depending on the price of the conversion. Edward2003, can you tell us if the lower and upper pod plates of the V1 car can be used on the V2 motor mount?

Love your videos BTW, super nerdy -and of course being a 1/12 enthusiast myself I mean that as a compliment.

Hello.

I'm sorry I don't have the V1 or V2 on had for comparison.
I will tell you this, the 12M lower pod plate and mounts are keyed into the chassis.
I'll do a video on the car to cover all the little details.

Thanks for the compliment It's a lot easier for me to communicate my ideas with video.
