I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico
Hey Peter, That Geico thing is just some American humor !!! It refers to one of our television commercials regarding a car insurance company(GEICO)

Those magazine writer types (Gary) are kinda weird so please forgive him !!

Thanks to all you people-with-connections that are willing and able to pass this stuff along!

'nuff said,

Everthing still in prototype.....that's why Tamiya would not say anything.....No body knows if it's gonna go to production!!!!!
Even Surikarn.....he has not seen the new prototype yet!!!!!!!!

Think about HPI Pro4......how long have you heard about that kit....and now it's still not available....

Regarding the color, I was playing around with photoshop.

I forgot the link and I cannot find it in my bookmarks.. It was a sweet looking prototype. Very original drivetrain.

But let's not get off subject.

Where is that other person who was going to post some more pics of the real thing ???

Yeah, especially if it has only 1 belt. I like the low CG design, like the Mission, MR4-TC, Assassin, etc...
