I'm just about to try some 13.5 and 10.5 4 cell (along with some 13.5 6 cell) testing in a 10L3T. Were these rollouts on a big track? How similar are they to 12th scale rollouts at the same track?

Good to here Cunningham, good luck with the business, I always liked Marty's ideas and the look of the cars and I hope that you do well with it in the future. When will you have the site ready to be ordered from?

Thanks Tom!

I wanted a Ture - Red white and Blue Grand opening for the July 4th weekend, But Marty and others that have an arm and a leg in on this venture want to go May or June, But I will not push this, when everything falls into place we will go with it.

I took over Jan 1st 2008 But June 1st 2008 is when the Company is mine.

C.C.

p.s. Marty will still be our #1 Idea man and top Designer.

Just be happy that spares are in stock BEFORE the car comes out instead of 4 weeks after the car comes out as most sedan companies do it...lol!

Ok your not alone out there, I just put a 10.5 and lipo in a Darkside car to run here in Colorado. I'll try it this weekend as It's the first race of the season. I'll check it out against the 235 cars with 6 cells and 19 turn to see how they compare.

Here is a pic of the HPI GT 40 Body on our Viper X10 200mm Chassis, Marty sent it to me and thought you might want to see it.

I will be testing this body in the weeks to come, Marty felt it worked good on our Chassis.

Let us know how it seems to work. That's certainly one of the bodies I've had my eye on. I'd be curious to know how it works with and without the wing. BTW, it's a Ford GT and not a GT40.
