Default 1/18th Scale Pan

So who's coming out with 1/18th scale pan cars? I only know of the Scalpel.

Interesting minds want to know!

Considering that it is not modified class and that none of the drivers had any decent lines this really is a norm. In our track both 1/18 and 1/12 are running unlimited motors/batteries (typo is 1/12 with 1S LiPo and 4.5-5.5T motor; 1/18 with 3S LiPo and ~5-7kv motors) the difference in laptimes is still ~3s. Probably with 1/18 pan car the difference would be half of that, but still 1/18 will never be as fast as 1/12 car, it's just against any physics

I've seen Bud's new car run, and it's sweet! Speedmerchant also has the new MiniMerchant, which is beautiful.
