Unregistered: I guess you didn't see the words "conversion kits". Did you bad-mouth BMI when they started doing chassis? Did you bad-mouth Hyperform when they started doing conversions? How about IRS? How about Hot Bodies?
Where's your conversion kit? Oh...don't have one? Then shut up!

Damon: Keep your head up, bro. Lots 'o' haters, it looks like. I'm gonna call you tonight.

That's the point, Walt built a car for himself. It's not a kit conversion or otherwise and it's not available to the public. At this point it is what it is.

1 car has links and one car has a u shaped t-bar or "u bar". They're not the same geometry or design.

What amazes me is that you're making a sedan (110% of your effort) and it's nothing more than a copy of the TC3 that Associated has been selling for years. Yes, the motor is on the correct side and the drivetrain is lowered (Walt and half the racing community did that years ago so you must have copied that) but really, what is so innovative on the sedan? Or the 12th car for that matter? Your cars are working very well but come on. Isn't it the cat calling the kettle black when you totally copy the TC3? BMI, Yokomo, HPI, and Tamiya all copied the shaft design btw.

This is so petty...It's junior high all over again.
hmm,didnt know that i made a shaft drive touring car. i do remember making a chassis kit for the tc3.but oh well,call it what you will.

the 1/12th kit looks nice by the way diggity,best of luck with it.

Damon,

Threw together the 12th scale car that someone sent over to me but since i'm running TC more than 12th right now, i'm letting someone else turn some laps with it right now. It turns in really well and transitions almost as well as my BMI car.

I think with a little tweaking, this thing will be better when the bite comes up. It works best on low-medium bite for us so far.

The next time he brings it out, i'll put some time and effort into it and let you know what I come up with. The one thing that I can say is that it is easy to stay consistant with it and there isn't a big learning curve on how it handles with a basic setup.

Keep up the good work,

Tim

Damon, I made some changes to the car from the regionals and now the car is DIALED. We had a great turnout for 12th stock last night at trackside, and I TQ'd and won. Car was super smooth, easy to drive, and carried incredible roll speed. I think I may have gotten you a few potential customers I left you a voicemail at the shop, get back to me when you can. Thanks.

D12 = money

Mr. McGreevey: Glad to see I'm not the only one with an RS300 sticking a half inch out from his D12.
