looks nice , does it have a few hpi parts in it? some look very familiar like the battery strap and the in-toe blocks.

Nice ride but isnt that based on the OVA T4/L2? Looks exactly like the OVA T4/L2 after looking at the car on your website...i've had the OVA T4/L2, it's a great car but seems like the company is out of business...looks like TOP bought over the company and TOP has got a new car..it's the Scythe

What makes it any different from an xray t2, Tamiya, or Hot Bodies or most other belt drive cars?

It has an OVA motor mount but we will change this it has suspension of the PRO 4 and the Chassis plate I cut out of 2mm carbon fiber.

The F1's and Buggy are on the website.

Yes it started out as a T4/L2 the picture on the web was the T4/L2 but we have changed most of the car and yes I have the Scythe
as well great car and OVA took parts from Tamiya and Yokomo and even AE.

So we will see if what I have made along with a new motormount and spur holder to move it forward a little!

First let me say here at MLP we give you a car right out of the box that you can win with. There will not be any Bling factor parts at MLP.
The car will come with all of the best parts we will not have any or many hopup parts I for one feel you should get it all on the car when you buy it.

MLP is not like any other R/C car Manufacturer out there Today.
We look at our R/C Cars as the real Full Size Racing Manufacturer's do.

Like Dallara Panoz and so on.

At MLP you will have 24/7 factory support and you will talk to a real person!

It is a 190mm Touring Sedan That you know.

Well I have tested all of the Top touring cars out there. Yes I own one of each!

Anyway I took what I felt was the best of each car.
So I will start with the Chassis the best Chassis I felt was the OVA T4/L2 I changed it a little this gave us the best Chassis all around for onroad out door and in door carpet.
For anyone that ever had a chance to run the the OVA T4/L2 or OVA Neo
The car for the day had a ton of steering it was fast but it never made the trip over seas to find its way here in the US.
I did get one about 2 years ago and loved it and kicked the crap out of all the other cars out there.
I did not like the Plastic suspension parts So we went on to build the car and set it up with all the suspension parts off the top Touring cars on the market as well as some that had come and gone.
I found the top 3 were the HPI PRO4 , Top Scythe (from Japan reworked OVA) and the Xray Fk05 worked the best for this car.
The Fk05 and our Chassis worked better than the FK05 on carpet and the Pro 4 Suspension worked better all the way around and the Top Scythe had almost the same susension Design we had come up with.
Now we had the Suspension Design we wanted Down.
Next would be the Location and type of motor mount We did the same here and found that the OVA Motor Mount worked the best and would give us a better chance to change The Chassis Layouts Now we had this done and would make a part almost the same!
Next we tested shocks and the steering as well and found what worked best for use and this car.

Now at this point the car was sent out to have the lower arms molded and made for MLP and the Prototype was tesed and everyone liked it!
so at this time we felt we did what we set out to do.

So Now we had a complete car and it will be going out to Cali to our Factory driver there to do some more R&D work and to see if he can win with this car.
so if we can give him a car that betters his finishing mark. in a open field of all the top touring cars on the market.
Then I know for sure we will have a car that can run out front I do feel we have did this I have won with it. and I feel anyone could!

New pictures of the car will follow later this week!

So pre-book your MLP Touring car now! these will be made pre-order on

Have you run our F1 cars ?

Ohh ok...anyway it looks awesome...the OVA cars are great and if your car is based on the T4/L2..i'm sure it's gonna be one hell of a great ride...Your F1 cars look awesome...

Default Question:

Is it too early to send in a resume'? Or do you have enough drivers?

you should move the motor in front of the spurgear so you could run saddle packs then move servo to the right side of the car. then you could wheel that!!
