Didn't Tamiya make a Nitro car with the Enzo body? Are Tamiya Nitro cars 200mm?

I'm pretty sure RcMart has a 200mm Enzo.

Hi Guys,

We got some very good testing done this weekend down at 360 Speedway & Hobbies. Nice big track with good traction

We ran the Vette body, with JACO Dbl. Pink Rears and Dbl. Pink Fronts. Novak 10.5 geared 34/100.

Car was still a little pushy, I think a little firmer rear tire would help rotation and we could have gone up few teeth on the motor.

The car was very easy to drive fast, and a lot of fun.

I wanted to thank 360 for letting us test. Great facility.

I posted a little snippet on You Tube:

Take care.-Bruce

Thanks guys.

The car seemed very popular, and the crew at 360 are ready to have a class for them right now.

Performance wise, I was pretty happy. We still don't have the correct tire combo and the car was quick with good corner speed. There are at least 2 or 3 tenths left on the bench due to tires and gearing.

I'm most happy about how easy it is to drive fast. With the long wheelbase, and fat tires, it feels like a really fast Limo. It's going to be a good class that a lot of people that struggle with complicated sedans and "twitchy" 12th scales will be able to drive competitively.

Thanks Jason. I got a chance to take a look at your car up close and it looks great.

Take care.-Bruce

I was there and I got to see all three cars up close. All of them looked sweet, this class looks to be a LOT of fun.

I will be buying one of the Speedmerchant Pro10's as soon as 360 has them in stock.

Bruce, it was GREAt seeing you again,as always.

Hi Guys,

Great seeing you too Dave. I'll try to make it down to 360 several times this season. We'll have some asphalt testing for the Worlds to do, and I might as well do it down there.

I put up some higher quality pictures of the Vette and Viper bodies.

We're off to the Carpet Nats.

Have a great week.-Bruce

Saw the car at the Nats when they let it go around the track a few times after one day of quals. Dumas, Darroch, and Stellfue (I think that's who was wheeling) ran it around and it looked pretty cool. Dumas was running around 10.8's with 4 cell 10.5 which was about a second off the top times in Super Stock. Someone was taking a video of it also so I'm sure that will show up somewhere before too long.
