Default Nice Car

Hi Marty, I hope you are feeling better.

Man those cars look sweet. You're killing me though with the low res shots on your website. I would love too see some high res pics of the car, including some detail shots front and rear suspension without the wheels to drool over please. I like that Ferrari F1 body too, really nice.

The Mercedes C11 GTP car looks nice too, the only problem I see is where are you going to get bodies for it-Tamiya discontinued the re-released Mercedes C11 and Jaguar XJR right just recently (which I don't understand)?

What Like this Xray shot on the end?

If so well I will try ok.

Oh from my wife!

Last night, my wife and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her,
"I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine
and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

She got up, unplugged the TV and then threw out my beer

What type of suspension and shocks did you end up going with? Is the chassis going to still be able to run 4x2 and 6 on one side? Also is there a updated availability date? I am very interested and will be buying a new touring car within the month.

Thanks John, but this is Tom not Steven. I'm still a great guy though! I hope to be sending you a battery order by Friday or so John.

As for the car it looks really good and I love the layout possibilities.

G'Day Marty, hows things?

Just wanted an update on the new car and if possible a release date and cost.

Also as I am in Australia is the car going to be supported locally here in Aus? The reason I ask is if it wont be imported and supported localy for parts and upgrades it might be a little bit too difficult for me to race it, if you have an arrangement with someone to bring the cars in at a reasonable price then I think it will do well. This is a huge problem in Australia, distributors overprice the product like you would not beleive and they dont seem to support the product either, in most cases. So this hobby is viewed as expensive and a little difficult at times, so if you could please give me a heads up on that as well it would be much appreciated.

It is looking great and I am looking to update in a few months and have this car at the top end of my list.

Cheers

It looks as if we will run the Hot bodys Cyclone suspension on this car.
And the Cyclone diffs and CVDs.

Shocks will be up to each customer on what they want.
Most want the
Tamiya TRF Shock
Some want the Xray Shock
I like the Yokomo Shocks.

I am making 4 complete cars right now in the final design (V2).

One each for our 2 factory drivers Jonn and Fred.

And 2 others for customers.

It will stay as a mid motor mounted car and you will be able to run 6 side by side or 4X2 or 3X3 for testing was Great and Jonn had Fun and kicked the crap out of them out in cali two weeks ago and took a win for MLP!

Yes we are running behind on the release date due to the flood and some medical problems.

So at this time I would say order a car and you will get it in about 14 to 21 days.

Yes this is 7 days longer than we wanted but these will still be made one at a time as they are ordered ok.

So get your orders in Now.

Noted ~ but right now we can not hook anyone up as for anything for free that is if steve orders one he will get one.

Steve we are a small one man run company and had a run of bad luck and trin to recover for it so I can not give anything away.

Plus I will put it out here all of our drivers pay for there cars all of them.

Not looking to upset anyone so please do not take this the wrong way ok.

Thank you.

Well We have someone out there that is looking at Importing all of our products still working on the details ok.

As for what they charge there is not much I can due about that ok.

I do know that a price was worked out and as they say the ball is in his court right now.

I will not do the price thing in the fourms you can email me and we can do that there or go to my website and have a look ok.

as for the release date one is able to order them now it is on a 14 to 21 day order fill as for parts we will stock most and ship overseas over night but you pay the shipping.

Thank you
