Enjoy your win. they happen as often as a solar eclipse. Sedan sucked. Thats what i get for not having a spool for the car. We wont talk about my pro 10 TQ where i was consistanly 4 tenths a lap quicker than you.

The cars ran awesome today and sparked a ton of interest. About everyone at the track is ready to drop TC and go pro 10.

As for the street price, im not worried about it. It will be what it will be. Im not going to preach any more on price or complexity. People will see what is fast and buy it. I cant tell people what they need to know, they need to see for themselves. I am really happy with the final design of our car and others who have 1/10th pan cars at our track are changing to our car after trying it. Everything will fall into place on its own.

Marcos,
You ran well today and your car worked good. My car was terrible and i did everything to hold on to it but it wasnt good enough. I still edged you out for qualifying position.

Companies will commomly allow you to purchase their kits from their own site, for MSRP in order to allow retailers to have some freedom in their price mark-ups. Retailers know what the market threshold is, and will set their prices accordingly. The moral of this story is SUPPORT YOUR LHS, OR YOU WILL BE RACING ON THE STREETS!

I dont wear panties a$$ hole

And before its over, they will be $300 street price....watch

And with the turn outs we have locally, the streets are looking better and better every day anyway

Pro-10 cars are much more simple. There are far fewer adjustments and the chages you can make make common sense. They are easier to drive, they are easeir to work on, have far fewier pieces, etc.

All of this makes Pro-10 cars better for novices, regular sunday racers, and harcore racers.
agreed 1000%
tell Miller tyme that at the top of the page

I was trying to imply that this is catching on to the existing market. Take it as you will. We will see if it helps onroad. If it is catching on to the existing racers, im sure it will catch on to newbies. I didnt put anyones arms behind there back and make them try the car. They asked and i let them. Im just going to let you guys discuss the class and such as you would like. I will offer a car and if you like it, you can purchase it. I will support the car and the customers to the best of my ability. I will no longer discuss what i feel is good for the class because all it does is seem to twist certain people the wrong way and then they get all pissy. So everyone can run what they like whether it is my car or someone elses, im sure they will have a blast. These cars are fun and very easy to keep going. Best of luck to everyone and enjoy which ever car you may chose. You will really enjoy them.
