The BPR2 is also a beauty if you like the aluminium classic look.

Excellent! thank you.

I am very tempted by the mantua car. It looks quite robust. There is also a carbon version, but i would rather have the ergal aluminum version.

Is there any clubs or anybody in the austin TX area with these 2wd pan cars? I'm enthusiastic about this class of cars. I have given up my hobby of motorcycles, so i would like to start model car racing with these classics.

Nice looking car, the problem is getting parts support and a way to get it here without spending 500 to $600. Several of us went with the Motonica P8C because of the price and availablility (its already imported by Motonica USA).

There used to be a track in Austin. Check this web site for the SW series.

They can point you in the right direction.

Hello,

other information about Mantua INTREPID on this website :

rcbazar.net/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1180

Just as an information, but you know that I'm sure, for spare parts, with an aluminium on carbon made pan car, you don't need a lot of compare to plastic of course.

Enjoy

Aluminum will bend, but you have a good point.

Also this one is very nice :

brx4racingteam.com/brx4_red_ball_light.html

I've got one and its fast, reliable and solid; believe me ! For 6 years now, except tyres, engine, servos, the only spare parts I need to have for the car itself : axis for steering, belt and bearing.

Of course it's more expensive to buy but after...no comparaison with plastic cars !

Nice looking car! I could be pursuaded to get into one of these if there was a local class.

Cool Motonica P8C the only one...

Well considering Montonica is the only one importing a pan car, and has parts at a reasonble price you will see plenty of plastic, carbon and alloy cars at the tracks when they start showing up to race.

Cool P8C may be for sale...

My never run Motonica P8C may be for sale if someone is interested. School and other obligations are more pressing at this time. It was built carefully, Im not an amatuer. Picture have been posted a few pages back. If interested PM me please.

You might want to mail DXF directly. I am sure they can give you some advice about the clutch.

With the old cars like the SG Futura, associated rc1 - rc300bd etc etc the motorpinion directly drives the spur that is attached to the axle. (Like modern 1:10 pan cars)

Is there a company/privateer that still makes those classic spurs or is there a substitute for it?
