Right now there is only 2 people running this car one is Factory Driver Jonn Erbmann out in Cali and the other Me but Mine is more for making and changing things till we get just what we want. So no and maybe we will setup a night or 2 during the week to have others check it out. ok

Ok here is what we are going to do.

#1 Driver Jonn Erbmann will be running the Prototype V1 of this car for the next 30Days ok he is out in Cali L A I will post where he will be and when so people out there can get a look at the X10P4 V1 as well as our other cars.


#2 I will set up dates with the Tracks in IL and Wisc ok and we will also post it here on where and when! so you can get a chance to see it and drive it.
I would love to send one to every state and have a driver take it to all of the tracks in the country but I can not do this ok.
So like anyother car out there you can keep going with the names and cars you know or take a chance and look outside the box and run a MLP.

#3 Next we have a sale on the car for pre-booked orders till July 4th ok

#4 Then the price is what it is and we will start shipping cars VIA Pre-booked orders Only! on the 1st of AUG 2006 ok

Hey guys! Mystery Man#1 Jonn Erbmann checking in!
As Marty said , the track dates where I'll be with the X10P4 will be posted soon. I'll try and make it to NorCal to a few tracks as well, if so, we will post those dates. You guys should start placing your orders, this car is going to be sick!

(And if you want a real rush, get an MLP F201 SCF-PRO and race F1!!

with the motor on this side car it would make the car run backwards. I know on a Mod you can just reverse the end bell, but what about Stock & 19 turn (the big classes). I like what you're doing alot it's cool to see a start up from the ground up. I like the way you're going about testing and trying new and out there ideas keep it up and don't rush it.

Thanks this came up before #1 ok but thanks

Hey marty i have a few questions that i have thought of from looking at the pictures

#1 In the above pictures you show a front motor mounted car, but the motor is on the wrong side of the bulkheads to run a regular motor. Would people buying the car have to run reverse wound motors.

#2 You keep showing pictures of a left turn only configuration, but wouldnt the batteries be on the left side of the car for that to work?

#3 Are the steering bellcranks only mounted to the chassis? Do they mount to any type of top brace?

#4 what kind of ackerman settings are you able to adjust with the steering linkage, because it apears in the photos you have negative ackerman. Which is completely opposite of any car on the market.



Other than those observations the car looks very good. Hope you can fill me in on my questions. And again i am very excited to hopefully se it on the rug at irp very soon.





#1 yes it is wrong this is why the Final car will have a new motor mount so it will just flip! and stay on the same side. and the servo move to the right

#2 No it is not as LTO (Left turn only) just when I tell people side by side they tell me LTO and this is what people tell me they call it when making solts (same as LTO)

#3 Steering we are working on it yes for each steering setup we make we make a New Upper Chassis plate!

#4 Steering is not set yet we keep changing it from one to a nother and at this time the links are for an PRO4 and we have the Tamiya 415 streeing in the car! ok so when it is done and we have what we will use I will post all the sepces ok

ok after talking with our drivers the front mounted motor design will not go into production But the Mid and Rear will be ok.

the the front motor mount will just push the cost of the car up and that is not what we want we could go with all the others and do 400 and 500 dollar cars but we will not some feel it is getting out of hand and people are walking away from touring car for this vary reason.

So we will try to keep the price down ok.

Hi there...

I can't wait to test this car This thing is looking awsome, and great value for money. As soon as I have tested it, I will keep this tread updated with the progress. The difference between the motor mount positions will be a great tuning ability, as for the front motor mount, I dont think that it would have worked out as good as the rear and mid-motor positions. The fact that you can choose what your track, or you prefer, is great.

Keep up the good work Marty....
