No problem, just wanted to make sure you hadn't been bailing water again and had a relapse BTW, How far from Chicago are you? My Fiance's family lives in Naperville and sorrounding area and I will be up there at Thanksgiving and in January so I am wanting to go check out some shops and tracks up there. Might even bring my car up.

Well, dont know about the others but SC has a pretty good RC scene especialy if you live near Charlotte, we have sevral folks that come up and race with us in NC sometimes from down there and there are several nice on and off road tracks in that area.

Any suggestions on what track to check out in Ill while I am there in Jan though? I will be there for the weekend without a whole lot to do at least one of the days. Which if I can figure a safe way to take the car means I might try to go racing.

Sounds like fun, I would like to do something like that myself one day but I sure that is far in the future. Still going to be making cars though aren't you?

I will never stop making cars !!!!!! But it will be cool to have my own test track !
That is for the short term.

Long term would be to open up on weekends for races and maybe even a once a year MLP World Challenge Race for all of our Classes of cars.

A place like this would be cool. (see pic) But first we will just build a track!


And it looks as if we will be in Vegas for 2007.

But this might changes as well.

This is the only picture I will show at this time! I must have got over 1000 emails and pms asking me ~ why don't you do it like this or like that! I do thank all of you for your input ok

after what went on here before this is how I am going to do it!

The V1 was tested and won over all other cars and even a few of the drives of these other cars have emailed me and said they would want this or that from the cars they are running on this car!

Yes I change things as I see fit, If one part is better than another or has more ajustment than another then I change it and try to test it The best I can and If I feel it works better I keep it!

I will post pictures at the end of the week and yes good pictures (taking hits on my lack of skill on taking pictures)

So we have one car out there running a Cyclone suspension - and one will be running a Yokomo BD Suspension and our car that will be going out to the public and the same as what I run ~ The Tamiya 415MSX MRE Suspension and TRF Shocks and with the DJ Pro-Module suspenion for TRF415 option selling with the car so you get both.

Reason for this is The TRF 415 MSX MRE has more Suspension mounting blocks to fine tune the car, Plus the car I run has the same parts.

This I will tell you we still have the mid and rear mount motor setup for the one car! (yes you can switch from mid to rear motor setup).

Yes we still have the 6X3 cell setup. so you can run 6 side by side 4 x 2 and or 3X3 cells or lipo packs! a center oneway a front one way and a spool and a ball diff! a one peice upper chassis plate.

The car weight is around 1230 grams!!!

Sounds even better than I thought it was going to be Marty. I am glad I did not order spares yet though. I almost ordered some cyclone arms and parts Cant wait to get my hands on it. BTW, that sure is a pretty track, where is it?

Denmark is the place for that track I think or if I remember right.

one of there owners emailed me on getting one of our F206F1 cars to test on it and see if they might be able to start a series with them ~ I also have the same going on at a track in Germany and maybe Japan.

Yes the Car is Hot!!!! With this setup!

Bad pic but here is a look at your car ok it is set up on a machup chassis and the when it is all done I transfer everything on to your new carbon fiber ok Plus it is kinda cool to do it like this and move it to the setup station and checked and when everything is moved to your New Carbon Fiber Chassis parts we do it again to make sure it is Dead balls on!

Marty,
Any chance on the car being out to me by the beginning of the week? First carpet race is next weekend and I would like to be able to run your car. Still have to build batteries and paint and cut the body too.
Thanks,
Tom
