Thanks.
Anyone know the answer to this? I'd like to order a couple of these but need to know if they'll fit first.

The cars all left today. We pushed for yesterday, but it was too much.

On the 12th scale body, the tire lines are not molded in. We left them blank so that people can choose to mount it forward or back. I typically run mine a little forward, to where the wheel arches in the rear are about 3mm longer in the front. To get good cut lines, I mount the body first, and then mark the wheel wells with a Sharpie by tracing tires on the outside.

The front end has a little bit of "tuck" on the rear part of the wheels, so long as you cut about 3mm above the tire, this has not caused an issue. It was molded this way to prevent air from going inside the body a bit. This gave much better stability in switch backs. Of course, if you run your front end narrower, this is not much of an issue and you can cut some really tight arches.

The only thing...

The manual is not ready yet. I did not want you guys to wait any longer. I should have it in about 7 days. Just soooo behind.

The build is fairly easy though. It's a 12th scale after all. But any questions, please let me know.

USPS. We are still updating all the orders. If you don't receive the confirmation email, log into it in a couple of hours and the tracking number will be attached to your order.

You are going to need a canuter valve with a muffler bearing adjustment trinket.

There will be at least 3 of them out there. I started building mine last night at the track. The guy coming with me is also bringing one. I hope I get it sorted out in time. If not, my other car is pretty damn good most of the time. Now to make it the 17.5 car, 13.5 car or both...that is the question.
