So you would rather remove the shock tower to remove the diff?

so remove the swaybars remove the shocks remove the front bumper and then remove the shock tower ? to replace the diff?

As for the front belt now there is none? we tested a tensioner and I was working on a spring loaded tension so one would never need to mess with it but both do not work to well so the front for now is none. (replace the belt) the rear has one.

If I get time I may look at this again but we will see.

It is a thought, as buy removing the topdeck, there is the possibility of inducing tweak on replacement.

First I hope you or anyone will not take this wrong ok.

This may not be the perfect car or the last one you will ever buy!

This is the car! the end! yes down the road we may look at some things and change them but only if it can be done for a upgrade to all of our cars and customers.

You know at one point one needs to look at things and say This is the car!

I would like nothing more to give all of you the last touring car you will ever need. But I need to bring this to market or just walk away.

So this is the car!

You know I stopped coming here because of the endless posts and PM's or emails of how it should be done!

If there are 100 posts here I get 100 pms here and a good 200 emails all about the same 3 things.

Can I have a car?

This is how I would do it?

Great car is it any good on carpet?

There maybe 100 ways to make something ok.

Right now this is the way it is!

once again I am one person making 6 cars 4 F1 and touring car and a dirt buggy and a New F207F1/Champ car and prototype LMP car.

There is only 24hrs in a day and 7 days a week I have not taken one day off in years. Oh my Heeart attack and Flood that was time off and a loss of almost all of our product. I forgot about that.

I am not rich or even well off! I can not hire someone to help or even farm anything out I did that once it cost me 2000.00 to make 20 pieces of one part and it was wrong holes were in the wrong spot

We have a small budget and we are doing all we can with it.

I can work on this car for the next 5 years and it would still not please all ok.

Stop and think about what gose into the making of a car! I get no help from No One even people email me and say they do this or that for a living and that they would do it like this or that. I have asked them for help and they are never seen again.

There is no one else I do the cad work I do the the cutting and machining the ordering all of it. at a loss!

I have not had a problem with the possibility of inducing tweak When I replace it.

you know one person tells me he would do it like this and another would do it like that and so on I have over 500 emails telling me how they would do it!!!!

I have another 500 emails and endless pms of people wanting a free car and for me to sponsor them.

This is the car ok. down the road if we change things then we will do it so every car can be updated at a low cost to all of our customers!
I have Changed things on this car about 10 times now so this is the car ok.

I have thought about it but when I change it out and hit the setup borad it is fine!

Sorry this might not be the car for you.

I am not looking to upset anyone ok.

I came back on here to update the people that wanted to see and buy this car. that is all! ok.

The shirts that are being made are payment for a car and parts

Now is that funny or what. I told him send me the shirts and I will fed ex a car so we will see.

I wish I had the Funds to take all of your Ideas and others and put them into a car! Man.

I have a lot of Ideas but no funding so I do the best I can!

Last there have been a hell of a lot of cars that have come to market over the last 12 to 15 years I know I have owned most of them and not one of them have been or had everything just the way I or everyone would want it.

This is our car. I will tell you one can win with this car just as easy as one can win with any car.


This is one reason why the little guy can not get ahead in this sport or hobby.

So maybe down the road I will be able to offer one of the top drivers in the country or world some big $$$$ to go out and run and win with this car just to get the name out I guess. Maybe that will be the only way to go.

Hey Marty,

I want to tell you that you should be happy that people come to you with ideas. In reading your posts you listen to people and respond to them. That is alot more than the TC I currently have. This car is less than a year old and today a company representative stated on another forum that the car was flawed from the design. They do not seem to care about the consumers.

I hope to have the money in the near future to buy atleast one of your cars. You seem to have more guts than anyone I know in R/C. Remember you and your cars are among the "eagles" not the turkeys that seem to be so numerous in R/C.

Default Marty!!!!

Marty!!! please calm down...you know you have to keep the blood pressure down at all times...
I know from your prior post and the car designs this is a labor of love ....
and we all wish we could be so lucky...

It's a great design....and i'm sure it will be a killer car.

top deck design...don't change a thing .....if ya look at the deck...it should be fine...
less chance of tweaking the car with that top deck..it looks like a firm design.
if you placed another break in the topdeck (bulkhead area) it may increase the chances of tweaking while racing....so You're decision of the current layout is awesome in my opinion.

Keep up the good work..and live your passion...the rest of us will dream of it...thumbs up.

You da man!!!!

Ohh...one last comment...i may use the wrong wording for this...
but I have to say the CAR is looking rather elegant.....yes it's an eye pleaser...especially that top deck. asthetics play a big role

I hope you accepted that appology dude... I see the smiles, lol.

I do like the idea of a 'boutique' car, but like you have said, you just don't have the funding to do it, shame there isn't a larger company who could pick up the torch for you.

I am happy people come here and email me all the time with there Ideas.

Thank you volracer.

But for this car right now it is what it is.

I know it is a sound car and can win!

We said you would be able to go from rear to mid motor well you can.

We said it would come with a ball diff and center oneway and a front oneway and a spool it has it!

It also has 2 upper Chassis plates one for asphalt and one for carpet.

The Car comes with a 2mm Chassis and 2mm upper plates 4mm shock towers.

We are running the MRE suspension why? because all of you asked for the best and right now I feel this is the best for our car.

It has the DJ Pro-Module suspenion and on asphalt it works great! keeping the rear right where it shold be! I will be looking for someone to make the lower arms out of Graphite plastic mix but no luck as of yet.

And I do not know how it works on carpet I do not run carpet that much.

And TRF Shocks because our shocks did not work out.

We are waiting on 3mm carbon fiber to make the smae Chassis out of that will be sold at 69.99 for a upgrade kit.

We have also ordered Blue SSG in 2mm and 3mm to make our cars from.

We need to find a place to do the Tamiya Blue to our Aluminum parts as well.

Just to let you know when I first tested this car it was in a parking lot my friends and I took our cars out and setup a track only 25ft x 50 ft with 4 corners and I killed them outright! they could not keep up with me in the corners this is when I knew It was what I wanted.

We did pay a company to copy the TRF Tamiya Shocks and also a set of F1 shocks for our F1 cars it cost over 4000.00 for 20 of each but it was all wrong! I did farm out the motor mounts 20 of them at 2000.00 and the holes were all wrong! I sent them back and asked for a refund or re-made but it has been 4 months and no word as of yet.

So if anyone knows of someone that can help in any of these areas let me know this is what I need most of all.

For now the parts will go out unfinished! in color.

Well I would rather get some help than have someone take it all over for me.

But in the end it is just a toy right. not like we are saving lives here!

Marty, have you considered asking some of the Asian firms to manufacture parts, I am sure GPM and 3Racing (the better of the two I think) might be willing to do small run batches, even tech racing.

Why didn't I think of that umm something about the forest and the trees I think

Now that I think about it I asked them if they could make some parts for my F1 cars for me in a small run of 25 to 50 each and the price was way to High!

But I could try again. Thanks
