youi said the carbon fiber costs would probably be double right? for every car you have to pay for the entire piece of it right, and the pieces you cut out of it to lighten it, cant be reused, for the smaller pieces? What upgrades wouldnt it include, titanium?

I am working on cutting costs with the carbon fiber. I think i may be able to get it down. There will not be much cost cutting if i do it right.

yeah, i dont see why you should keep the price the same as the 1/12, if it wouldnt be beneficial to you.

We are in production now with the car. We have been a little behind schedule. One of our longtime employees was diagnosed with pancreatic carncer a few months ago and he is going downhill pretty quick. We have been trying to complete the work that he wasnt able to finish before he had to call it quits. I am back on track with production now and should have most of the parts completed shortly. Thanks for your patience. This has been a hard time for us. Not only is he a real top notch worker, He is also a dear close family friend. I hate when things like this happen.

On a lighter note, I am still looking at some time in march for release.

I sent my car to bob stormer last week. He wanted to show it to people at a race he went to this weekend. I asked adrian to post a pic with it mounted in his car. Lets see if we can get him to do it some time soon.

Took the car to the Regina leg of the W.C.I.C.S (Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series). Lot of old school pan-car lovers up there. One of the biggest temporary carpet tracks we get to run on. Was, I believe, 48x100.

I was kind of looking forward to trying the car to see how a 200mm version would feel. I'm from the old-school of pan car lovers the wide 235mm cars. We used to run those all the time in our area. If you had a 1/12th car, you had a matching 1/10th pan in the pits. I enjoy pan, and am the last NORRCA 1/10th pan National Champion before NORRCA went away in 2003. *SNIFF* So I have a very soft spot in my heart for pan cars. As did pretty much everybody that saw the BMI car this weekend.

Made a few small changes to the car (different front tires) and mounted a Corvette body on it, that sums up the work I did... ...lol... As a demo car, to show some of the heads of the series and people interested, it worked perfectly. I think the pack I tossed in the car got 8-9 charges over the weekend and I'm guessing maybe 15-20 different people drove it.

As massive as the track was for us, I still had to drop the pinion from a 37 (pinion Jason had on the car) to a 34 and it was close enough to have a good time with.

Everybody that drove it or saw it drive was surprised that all I did from Jasons Asphalt setup was swap the front tires. Would have been fun to REALLY work the car over and try and dial it in. I suspect very similar to mod touring times

I should have pop'd a transponder in the car. Would have been neat to see where it would have stacked up. Was 10.5 Brushless with a 4 cell pack. I've got some VERY ghetto videos of the car that I took with my little pocket camera that I might pop on youtube.

Anyway, we enjoyed it. Showed it to a lot of folks. Lotta folks drove it, and we all had a good time with it.

Now the moral dilemna... to send it back or not....
