I neeed two of each and a couple of spares . I have to be careful, the wife still has lots of ammo for her assault rifle. I can't wait to get to the out of town tracks to let the locals check out the MLP car. I've had several e-mails saying they wanted to see it. I said " would you like to take a lap or two with it?" I think they drooled on the screen, the reply was kinda fuzzy. At the moment we have 22 local racers with F1 cars on the official list. There is no doubt it will grow as each race travels around to the other tracks. We're getting there!

Marty, you might want to try to expand your customer base by getting the attention of rc racers who don't currently race F1.
I would strongly suggest you get in touch with the major rc car magazines and do a photo shoot and supply them with one of your cars to test drive and write an article about. The rc car magazines carry lot of clout and you need them to support and advertise your products!
Back in the mid 90's they got behind a revival of the F1 class of rc racing and it exploded for a few years; largely because the rc magazines were helping to promote it and make the public aware of F1 rc racing. I think the same thing can happen again, especially with your product!
I hope that this is of some help to you.

Thanks Team Losi!

I thought I had something like that setup and we will see!

Maybe I should have started my own magazine first

J/K you are right and Thanks For the Help!

I'm probably going to order one from you, there isn't a class here for it but it'll look cool running around the parking lots and maybe on my carpet track...

Default Press release

Marty
I agree with team Lotus,
a press release to all rc mags,
invite them to all major races where you will be appearing.
spread the love.

I used to run a community organization and we had press releases to advertise our activities. It is another way to get the work out of the new F206! and the new touring car!

another idea would be to do a tag along a big car races, say champ car races.
similar to how Groovey drift has drift competions at the D1 full scale Drift comps. That is when and if you have the time, or find someone with the interest, time and money to do this. You can recoup event cost by selling kits.

I know we a full of good ideas, which take a huge commitment.
We all just want this thing to take off.

I remain a total fan of what your doing,
Wayne

Well we have looked at 1/12 scale cars and we may come out with one over the winter.

We like full suspension cars here at MLP but we will not let one stone unturned!
