Not to go offtopic but ordered my MC10 from Apex and super surprised at shipping time. Got it a lot quicker then I had expected from the Islands!

Actually dropping another order for some other things with them. Now just have to figure out a paint scheme lol

I ordered a MC10 and a Nardo on the 15th from Apex, but they didn't actually ship out until the 18th. They are scheduled to arrive today, though. Perhaps the actual ship date depends on where one is located in the U.S.?

Did you choose Priority shipping? If not that may be why. I did, rather give a few more dollars and have the tracking and insurance it provides.

Not an excuse for Apex but I know Danny (Owner of APEX) has spent a lot of time at the hospital with his father who had some major health problems the past few weeks. So it could possibly be the reason for the slight delay.

Thank you to those who ordered the Bittydesign products! Most of you should have them by now or should be arriving shortly.

I had a chance to test all 3 bodies this past weekend. I was pleased with the results of all 3, each has its own characteristics. Feel free to post your observations.

I wanted to take advantage of the free shipping so I kept padding my order until it reached $100. However, I do believe it was clear in stating that my free shipping was not priority but I thought I'd just let the chips lie where they are. No big deal. This just means that with future Apex orders I'll select the priority shipping. I do intend on making orders with them again since I liked their product selection. Let's just hope that I quickly get comfortable with my new BittyDesigns bodies so I don't wind up destroying them quickly and thus needing to place a second order with Apex too soon!

I could never get along well with my Striker 2.0. My hope is that the Nardo will really work out towards being smoother than that. If not, I have no doubt the MC10 will really calm things down. In the case of the MC10, I just need to figure out whether I should mount it in the neutral position as opposed to the more aggressive, 2 mm forward option suggested by Mad Max. Has anyone else had a chance to experiment with several MC10 mounting points?

I had my MC10 mounted neutral. The 2 mm forward will probably help. This was on asphalt as we don't have a carpet track yet.

I was only able to snag one Nardo and one MC10 with my recent order. Anyone have any idea when these bodies will be available in greater quantities to North America? Also, any updates on ROAR certification?

We are preparing shipment for our official US distributor A Main Hobbies, 15 days and both the new bodies will be availables on their website.

We' ve also started the ROAR procedure, they are not fast to reply emails but finally we are moving ahead, they said "30 days to approve the bodies", we hope they could be shorter. We'll see.

Excellent. Thanks for providing the update.

I spent a few hours at the track last night doing back-to-back runs comparing the Nardo and the MC10. Let me just say that I love how the MC10 handles! I knew it would calm the steering down and make things a little smoother, but I was pleasantly surprised about how stable it was entering the corner at the end of the sweeper. It's early days, but I think the smoother corners on the front fascia are going to hold up really well on the MC10. I can't wait to get more!

How was the Nardo?
