I talked to Bob Stellflue at nats and he said the same thing. The problem was more that I have had only about 5 inquires since I made it. 50 inquires and I am cutting parts but It's a waste of time to make a handful. Honestly I would like to create a brand new T-plate 235 pan car with a wide pod and the ability to run CRC or AE front end. A friend of mine runs an old 10L and nothing can touch it. That thing out handles everything we have tried to do with the 235 CRC car.

The only thing getting in the way of creating the new car is I got myself into Nitro 1/8th and Nitro Sedan and that has cured my speed fix.

So does that mean no deal on ever seeing availability of the batwing and center brace to change battery configuration for WGT cars? How many would you need to see profitibility?

Hey there Troy,
By any chance did you get an opportunity to look over my E4 chassis design for quote?
I thought I'd give you a little extra time once the Nats had passed.

I have another Pan car project in case you are interested as well. Since you've gotten into 1/8 nitro, this might be right up your alley.

Drop me a PM so we can exchange contact info.

Cheers!
