Mate its going to be pretty hard to find a V10 for sale as they have not been released yet, How ever you will find the Velox V8 it is an eight scale. As Geberit says they are not to far away. Katze is right by what is easy for parts for you. You will not go wrong with what ever brand of the top line of cars you buy. I personally just want a V10 as I like what I see and have read about it.

I think its not applicable to me, because for my experience its getting more expensive doing that. I've already done that, when I first bought a practical and affordalbe car, and then buy the better car, I realized that I should have not waste money on the affordble car, rather I should have spent that money to buy hop ups for the better car.

Does it makes sense to you?

Why do you crash the car anyway? Pushing your limits on driving?
Well for me, I dont do that, I learn little by little and I take care of my cars, thats why I havent had a bad crash. Maybe I have bumped and damaged the foam bumber, but I didnt really have a broken piece ever since.
kid... if you think you are smart and refuse to accept inputs, then just be a passive forum user....

well, i shall not say anymore after this post... cars wear and tear... even the best will crash during races and it is sometimes beyond your own (driving) control... as a noob, you will definitely break cars faster... even if you concientiously repair and replace parts, you might even find that buying a new car altogether after, say a serious crash or a hard season of racing, makes far greater economic sense that replacing just the broken or worn parts.... plus the car will never feel as good as a new car freshly built...

i might be wrong for your case but hey, my word of caution still goes out to you....

Fine sir! But I will still get a top end car so that when I start to drive it, I know how to handle better cars. I still wont waste money on a what you call affordable car.

But ok, take it easy, buddy its not like I'm getting passive, its just I have experienced it already and I know I will waste time and money doing what you have said earlier. Cool!

Team Sheperd's website. But its still not known when it will be released. I'm just speculating, I really think it would be out before this year ends.

Thanks for the update Josh. Look forward to seeing what happens over the next week, As I will be off line as we have our nationals on over the forth coming week. Hopefully it will be all good news when we return home.

Too late for me, no races in this season any more and bad weather is starting. Not a very good timing to launch a car for most of Europe ...

And now seven paiful months of waiting to drive the car in season 2010 ...

I hoped I could test the car allredy this year and get some impressions for next season but ...

So some feedback and set-up tips from guys like Josh and others arrownd the World would be grate not to start ''blind'' next season ...

That's true I enjoy building cars very much. I'll just buy two so the winter will pass quicker

I cant wait for the car to hit the stores but what always scares me about the release dates is, when I see picsthe car still has the xray tank, that makes me feel that there nowhere near production if they still dont have a tank of there own
