This whole thread is laughable!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone with opinions on what should be done. Maybe they will make a TV show on this. Maybe we could get DR Phil or Jerry Springer to have a show. It would need to include Marty, XLP drivers and the guys who think they know what is going on. I smell a number 1 hit daytime drama.

I would be pissed but still no one to blame but yourself in this situation. Buying from some unproven knock off basement making car company is just asking for trouble and then add living about 5k miles away makes it even worse.

A lesson learned the hard way.

Yes Marty should have come thru better but this is what can happen. 99% can be avoided by buying from reputable well established companies.

i wouldnt even let a dog drive a MLP, thats how bad it is.
I pretty much drove most of the car out in the market. They all handle great its just comes down with your preference.

I drove my X10P4 today, First time on asphalt and it works very well. I have to admit the first time I run the car on carpet it handle horrible but I stick with the car and work on it. But if you are just going to bitch about on everything I can't help you there.

Like I said E-mail or PM jamie and I'll help you the best I can.

As bad as the Tobacco company employee saying "Cigarettes are not bad for you" before keeling over from lung cancer a month later.

You are on Marty's payroll mate, so there is no way in hell you're at all impartial here, you're paid to promote MLP, not to "heaven forbid" be honest!

If you say the car handles well, it must say a LOT for your ability as a driver, you'd probably find a beat up TL-01 to be beyond belief and a championship winner then!

How about I sponsor you with a TT-01, fixed linkages so all this confusing stuff like set up you won't need to worry about, should be more to your liking, considering you consider the MLP driveable, this should be a revolutionary car for you!

I have read this thread for sheer entertainment value.Comical.

jochim18 is one of those guys who wants to be a part of something.A team player. He wants people to recognize him as a team driver.Wasting your time with a shady company,defending it's poor buisness practices just to be called a team representative on the internet is a real joke. The car is crap.The company is crap.Your a weirdo waiting 5 months for a pile.Stop with the bullsh!t repping because it's not working.

Our Budget for each car is its sales!!! we take every penny and put it right back into the design and making of the cars I for one do not feel this is about MLP it is about the cars I set out to make a car that would Cost less than the high end cars out there and give you everything you need and no hop ups so if it came with a carbon fiber chassis aluminum parts titanium parts full bearings a center one way a front one way a spool and a rear ball diff. a aluminum steering horn ~ motor and spur mount(new one in the works as well) and so on! all in a complete Roller! Like all of our cars setup and ready to race! we have been doing it for 2 going on 3 years and will keep doing it!

Look back in the day you could get a high end car for about 200.00 and about 100.00 to 200.00 in hopups you had the best of that car.

Then it went to 300.00 for a car and 400.00 now 500.00 in a year from now I am sure you will see cars at 600.00 and more and more hopups! We will do all we can to keep our cars at the price they are at and yes we will offer updates to the Chassis and anything else we come up with at a low cost!


I for one would like to see MLP a household name like Coke and Tamiya or HPI even Xray is backed or was by Serpent so till that day we will do all we can with all we have. Thank you.

I wounder if Losi and Schumacher had this problem strating out
