I laughed so hard I almost pee'd myself. oh oh oh, oops, I did a little bit.

Hey, that's my personal transponder in the car. It's for sale for $500, due to the fact that is was in a celebrity car.

WOW,
You guys are killing me, I made this car last year as an experiment to see what the mid motor thing was about. Thanks guys that had nice things to say .
The other guys come on chill out, I did it for FUN and to LEARN. LEARNING makes you faster . I will say OFFICALLY this has nothing to do with Xray or any of their projects (they do those sometimes so you can get a better product). I would like again to thank everyone for the intrest and the comments.

ps watch out you never know what I'll make next. Oh Tool Box Jr. = J/K, thanks.

James Reilly -- for real!

Way to go James it even made a fuss over on my local forum, people were getting pissed that they would have to buy another car to keep up Too bad they didn't know about the other cars since then

i Have been seeing Josh Cyrul runing this kind of prototype at Reedy Race USA 2005 and he say that it was Kyosho PRototype.

How did this car work out for you? How did it handle differently from the FK (04 or 05)?

James:

Hi,

You should post your 04 Cleveland chassis. I still think that was a great idea. you had everything right on it. I know Mini wanted to try it out.
Funny how some people see something different and think it's gotta be the next new Xray car......

BTW:

Still interested in shooting Mini's bodies for Cleveland?????????? LMK


Thanks

Well...I stand corrected. However that is a VERY, VERY factory looking car. (F-ing damn fine job)

Besides...I've seen prototypes use tons of different parts from various manufacturers when being tested, developed.

Dawgmeat really had me on this one!


Although XRay is still the crack dealer of R/C. We all know thats true.

Yes, the Kyosho car that Josh designed made it's debut at the Reedy race this year.

This car in question was made by James Reilly OVER A YEAR AGO as he stated. It was something he wanted to try and had the ability to machine.

Sold what??? I just BOUGHT a 2nd FT-TC4.


I did purchase an XRay FK05 from a local guy who bought it and didn't know what he was doing and sold it 2 weeks later for a killer price back in May. After disassembling / reassembling it just once...I knew I hated the car, and honestly didn't really care how it drove. So I sold it 4 days later without even driving it once.

That's what I was talking about...

I had a similar experience witht he Team TC4....hated assembling/disassembling the car....I thought it felt decent on the track...

Then I went back to Xray and was blown away by the FK05

I know you're a TC4 die-hard Soviet

Winsdorguy99:

Hi,

I'm with you.

I just got done building a FK05 for a friend last night. I still love it easy to build, shocks came out great. my last build of a TC4 was not as fun. (FTTC4) and the TC4 is not a favorite sedan of mine anyway. (I still like the TC3 and I have 3 of them). I'm thinking of buying myself a 05 so I can try to race again...............(no laughing).

will we see you at Cleveland????? (Sat or Sun)

Thanks
