Eric...you and Mark (and others!!) need to plan on coming up March 7-9 for the 18th Annual Magic City Carpet Classic!! Mike Blackstock gave the event two thumbs and a big toe up (he'd have done both big toes, but he'd have landed on his a$$) last year. Always a big 1/12 and taxi cab turnout. It will be held in the Shrine Auditorium...LOTS of pit space (full table for everybody!!), huge layout (52' X 100' this year), a drivers stand to die for (it's a stage...room for 50 and your feet are 5' above the surface), scored with our RC Scoring Pro software (no hassle resorts, quick-n-efficient race management). How can you NOT be here???!!!
The springs are actually the same as the 1/10 progressive front springs. Like Mark said, keep us posted on the race, sounds like fun!.

-Eric

We have T(axi)C(abs) too, though we'd REALLY like to see him race 1/12 though.

Taxi Cab is a good discription, but I like Trash Can better.

Eric, Do you have replacement shock shafts/pistons for the Mx2? Also are you going to have the new IRS lower front suspension arm available for purchase?

Hey Darkside, I know that you are working on a new motor pod to put brushless in the Mx2. Did you see the new pod on the BMI car? Looks very interesting, as it moves the motor forward, not the axel back. Has clearance for 88/46 maybe 50 gearing for 13.5

Also, will you be carrying the IRS front arms??

See you Saturday for the next series race.

Yes, I'll be carrying the IRS new lower a-arms in about 2-3 weeks.

As far as new stuff goes, I'm also working on some revisions to the rear pod to be more brushless friendly. I'll also have a 1/12 version of our set-up wheels out in september.

I do have some of the IRS shock pistons in stock, just shoot me an e-mail if you need one.

Thanks Eric, I put in a quick order to get me through from IRS allready so I'm set for now. But I do want to pick up more of the lower arms for my other 1/12th scales and for spares along with the aluminum pivots so I'll be looking to place another order for those parts in a month or so.
