I have some black wheels with 30 shore tires mounted if anyone is interested. I will be carrying tires next year but I am not sure about the availability of black wheels. Personally I don't like them as it's harder to see the car.

The P8 Classic was the predecessor to the P8C. If they still have any in stock, I can probably get them to you direct for about $375 + shipping. I never built or ran the Classic, but it does look pretty cool. Back then they also made the first version of their 4wd pan car, the P8 Base, see it here

Here's the manual online http://www.competitionx.com/pdf/vehi...2wd-manual.pdf

Pretty sure the carbon fiber chassis shown in the redrc link was an option

Sorry guys, the classic is no longer available. Stick with the P8C or P8C Extreme.

The motor that comes with it is not the Picco, but very similar. I'm sure the Picco would fit with very little effort, and probably be an improvement.

Even though my lathe and mill are "mini" sized they are perfect for the toy car stuff! I really like making little stuff for the cars and other projects. I have gathered parts to make an "X" axis power feed and think it will work slick!

i figure its easier too stock up in the off season a little edge never hurts. i need too get 220 run in my shop before i can get started. also we should get moving on our group body order. my old 10l pan drives just like our 1/8th stuff. lots of laps on sun.
