Hi Guys,

Thanks for the kind words. We're really happy with the new car.

Yes, there will be a conversion for 5L owners. Basically it will be all the Carbon Fiber, but pretty much everything else will transfer over. Should save a lot of coin.

I put up some better pictures on the website.....I'll get the full intro page done this weekend.

Have a great day.-Bruce

The car looks very nice, as usual. Good job Bruce.


Does anyone have a link to the race in Asia though, did they really race on that surface? I wonder how that was?

No, I'm pretty sure that's Takahiro's (RC House Champ) Mini Z Track. They just used it for pics.

The race was at Yatabe Arena, on carpet. Track was HUGE. Here's the best pictures I found...

I know it was very low traction at the beginning of the weekend, and very cold. They actually had a snow storm in April which is quite unusual.

Watching on Live RC, you could see everyone with winter coats on while racing.

Ok, thanks Bruce. That does make more sense.

Thanks Jason....I hadn't looked at the Tech for a while. Your new cars look great too. I've always liked the copper color anodizing.

Have a great weekend.

hey guys i will tell you i have been playing with the second prototype of the rev 6 since snowbirds and i will say it is drives like a dream easy to drive and tons of speed in the infield .. i know bruce did a few small changes that we all agreed would make the production car even better so i cant wait to get my production kit.

the new front end with the 6 screws is a class act no more tweak issues and no more o-rings falling out killing a run

the new side spring are top notch the new design makes the car feel the same all the way through a corner

i have some set ups if you are looking for any pm me

It is the Speedmerchant driver who fought in Rev.6 with ASIA CUP 2010. It is Naoki Watanabe, Kazuki Endo, Kouji Tsukamoto from the left.

I like the metal spacers in the frontend and the front ride height adjusters.

LOL...

Hi Steve,

Thanks....I think the original design has proven itself at this point.

Talked to Drew Ellis a while back and he said he's racing with you guys.

Hope you're having fun and everyone is well.

Going to hit up a big race anytime? It would be great to see you.

Take care.-Bruce
