Missed you at the GLC this year my friend! Good to see you're out there!

You need any WRC tips, just ask me. Jason's OK, but he only says what I tell him to say!

With my eldest son deciding to bow out of RC cars after the 2013 season , I felt it was the perfect time to refurbish and sell my Formula Vee race car which has been sitting in my garage, unused since 2006. With my bad knees I finally faced the facts that I will never race the car again and neither of my sons are interested in racing the car. I plan to purchase a WRC in the off season , transfer my motor and radio gear into it and be ready for 2015 , and I'm sure I'll be taking you up on the offer of building and tuning tips !!

Just my thoughts, if you are trying to get a 2wd pan class going in your area, I think the P8F will only cloud up the picture. I agree that that car sounds like fun, I've run my 4wd pan twice and put it up, no where near set up, but there is no place for that sort of car. once we get a strong 2wd class going then perhaps I'll bring it out.
Yeah they are still in buisness. But I know the supply of cars is dwindeling, as such I am sure they may be working on some new ideas.

As for the P8F its to keep racing with my 4wd friends while maintaining a manageable amount of spares, given I sold of my MRX3&4 cars.

Glad to hear you are coming back to join us in 2015! The class did well this year and steadily growing in numbers. 2015 will be our best season yet!

what body are you talking about?

I myself like the bodies on these cars now. I also think the class is in great shape now and only getting bigger. no need to change anything.

Yes they do not look good until painted cause not much body size, but that's what sports about.
