Actually, yes. The usual wait has been 2 weeks, but if you ordered a month ago, the quote for the delivery of the batch was to start delivering them last week. We are on schedule to get them all out under the 2 weeks from when the batch started to ship. Chances are, your car will ship this week.

I build every single car before it ships and I can't really get more than 6 or so per week at the time. Our list was bout 20 deep, but we are on the home stretch right now. I am currently down to the last 10 right now. If you send me an email at the shop, I can give you a fair approximation of when it will ship.

These cars both GEN 1 and GEN 2 dominated the Texas EOS races this weekend in Dallas! Now I just need to build my Gen 2 Aluminum one and see if it will give me an edge.

Hey Cristian, do you do any treatment to the carbon edges or we have to take the car apart and sand and seal ourselves?

The edges are partially sanded, but not sealed. I have not had issues with the V2 de-laminating without gluing probably because of the front bumper. However, you could seal just the bumper for extra protection.

I haven't glued any of my Reflex chassis. Just sanded the edges down like Cristian said. They have all held up just fine.

Thats good to know...I was just wondering since the chassis will be pre-built, dunno if it will be sanded in house or gotta do it ourselves.

Hide Matusshima who is JMRCA stock racing finalist and RR12V2 pilot, got Q2&F2 in EPS-J 17.5 stock race which was held past weekend.
He reported this race and his setup V2. FT1 and sticky finger(additive) track.

Thanks for the report Landau!

It was a nice weekend for the V2!!!

At the Texas EOS Rd.1, the V2 swept the podium in style, landau himself finished second, with Johnee Fenimore taking 3rd overall and myself taking the TQ and win.

I was using the aluminum chassis car and both Landau and Johnee used the carbon version, it was nice to have a big group of cars that we all collaborated and were able to find good speed with the car on the new CRC Black carpet. It was my first time on this new surface and the only set up change I made from my track on the old carpet was going to harder tires (JFT C40F with glue on sidewall @ 40.00mm and JFT C35R @ 40.5mm), 0.5 degree less camber (harder tires squirm less, so need less camber), and went from a yellow to green side spring.

As a side experiment I did something unthinkable to the avg 12th scaler. I did not set tweak a single time over the weekend. It was an experiment of sorts. I kept the pre load of my side springs constant as well as the ride height at the front 2 corners. The car NEVER drove tweaked. This was a really cool finding and supported my theory that the new front end hides the tweak and nearly eliminates it all together. This is especially valuable after bigger hits, the car does not seem to change or get affected much. This car seems to stay more consistent and fade less with the double a arm system over the reverse strut.

I did blow apart sand and seal the carbon parts, however I will be using the car on asphalt plus I prefer the way it looks.

Hey Cristian, would you have a set up for 17.5, low to medium grip?

Very interesting. I think my next 12 scale will be a V2 with aluminum chassis
