Well thats Great kinda bad you didn't get to race touring car any way I hope you did good in 1/12th scale.

The arms are the same HPI and Tamita as for mounting points I thought. It should not have changed the car that much

Since there wasent enough people to race I decided to make another 3hr trip to Zak's in vineland for some 1/12th racing.

I didn't get home till almost 1:30am!!

Still kinda tired.

Marty give me a call later today say around 2 or 3 pm.

Guys all in all this car rocks!!!!!

I don't know what Fred's conclusion was yesterday but here is what I saw. The car looks incredible. It has a finished appeance to the same quality as a Tamiya but without all the slop in the suspension that a Tamiya has, even though it uses the 415 suspension. The car looked good on the track for being its first time out and no changes being made. It looked to me like a couple of small changes and it would have been dialed (but he broke it and didn't have any spare arms and I had to leave before it was fixed) Fred's commented that it worked as good as it looked.

The only problem I saw was that I stopped racing and it makes me want another car.

She told me I could get another car if I found a sponser that was willing to pay the rent on my new apartment. I'm thinking I can get a storage rental pretty cheap.
