WOW....THAT ISH IS SO SEXY MARCUS....!!!! your painting/decal skills are great too...well I am really looking forward to getting feedback from you concerning the lowdown on long vs short chassis...I too agree the scale of the long chassis is way more photo realistic !!!

thanx, I ran some tanks with it today and will have some vid up tonight, bodies look really good on the track. the long chassis was as quick as anyone else today and there is alot of room for improvement, I think it can be done.

I will not have them in my hands until late this week or monday, coming from overseas.....





The GTR body is very neutral and stable, the MP body has LOTS of steering and i think it will need more wing and air dams, next time out i am going to raise the wing 10mm with some dams along with some setup changes. Didnt have time to mess with the ferrari yet but will soon

The McLaren is really nice, looks like real car.
Like u said before, it would be nice to see this GT lemans style running at the same time.
We need to add those 3 new bodies in our group.

Wow...that is great news Marcus...If the Long chassis is as fast as the short, Cobra GT owners will start scrambling LOL...you have me so excited that I just installed some super speed JR servos in my GT2 Race spec...

Can someone help me with the part number for the side gaurds that fit the GT2. I ordered a set but they were wrong. I was told to look up the part for the truggy chassis. But they were the same as the mp777. So I gave them to my buddy for his gt1.

You could count me in for at least 2 sets.

I was able to run some decent lap times with it today, considering how bad the track was and the car isnt even close to being setup. In this vid i was driving loose just to make the vid look cool!

I have the hubs off of the car for measurements, should have pricing in a few weeks.

Those are the ones I had and they were to long. I was told that I need the ones for the truggy not the mp777.

Also is there a hop-up that replaces the e-clip hinge pins with captured hinge pins?
