Him signing for 1/12th is correct. The touring bit however is only for motors and battery's. This part btw is not signed yet.

I think that you"ll like the Pro4 knuckle on the front because the steering is a tad bit quicker ...But anyways Take some pic's

Getting full support from tamiya is a good achievement i doubt he will switch to Corally. I heard his only going to run 1/12 for them at the worlds nothing else. Tamiya huge then again im biased cause im a tamiya fan all the way

Someone's gotta tell the guys that there's a reason why they're called "car stands"



Those fo sho look like EvoQuatros to me with a couple 415's to boot.

As its not very long ago since he switched to Team Orion regarding motors and batteries and feels good there from what I here I cant think he switch to Corally now.
Regarding the 1/12 car this may be possible. Next weekend I will meet Oscar from Team Orion he will know more on this.

Oscar prob won't know about it yet. Talk to Constant Paul from Corally. And when you're at it, see if Ralf from GM is still alive and kicking cause i can't seem to get hold of him.

I took my Evo IV out for its first race outing, and it was quite quick, only half a second from the factory drivers, and its just straight out of the box, with no hopups or anything. I didn't have any spares though and the lead driver tagged my rear end and it broke my right rear upright at the base, and also the ball joint on top of the left rear upright. CRAZY STUFF. I'd never broken any rear upright sort of parts on any of my other touring cars. Have you guys found that area to be quite weak too???

If Constant will be at the German Touring Nationals next weekend I will talk to him. But I think he will be there.
If you mean Ralf Helbing he has reduced racing a little. I just meet him last weekend at the Offroad 2WD Nationals.
He will not be at the Touring Nationals.
If you need his Emailaddress please send me a PM but I will leave tonight for the Nationals and will not be back before monday.

Thanks Mark, same for you at the Marathon.
Hope I have enough time for a report from this race and making some pictures.
Just bought a new memorycard for my Digicam today.
But the weather forecast isnt very good. Seems we will have a wet race there. Hope it wont be that bad as at the Euros.

Good luck from the US V12!

I severely doubt Surikarn will switch from Team Orion/Peak. If I were him I'd be VERY happy there. He can go to any race in the world and have a very good chance at winning and the Revolution V2 has proven itself quick and is quickly gaining a good reputation

I've broke my arm and the upright holder pin but not the upright itself.
