But I agree, hindsight being 20/20, I wish we would have waited a few more weeks before releasing the news flash....or started a few weeks earlier. I wonder how big of a deal it will be to release it in the middle of the season....But then of course, there isn't an official electric 1/8 scale racing category...yet.

I just can't wait to drive one! But I am much more of an electric guy anyways....as I am sure you have figured out with as much track time as I have done so far.....lol.

I guess I was misinformed. I always thought that we were getting a first batch in June. I must not have been listening to Cam very well. I think I'll go back to website design now......lol.

The box has been changed and is complete. Directions (owner's manual) is complete. Everything is complete and waiting for one final gear to be made and then they are done. I am expecting the first batch will arrive July 1.

Here are the details as per Caster Racing.

good to hear they basically are ready to go. I think a factory 8th scale will be great.

Looks good, with the Monster Max combo comming out soon it will be a no brainer for everybody. I hope the manual gives a good discription on how to make a Y to hook up two batteries. That will confuse a lot of people. maybe it should come with the car or be sold as an option part?
