Found these on eBay. No more cardboard boxes for me. Unfortunately I bought the 3 in stock. But will post if I see them back.

Very nice looking setup. Is there a model number on the tag maybe it can be found somewhere else. I would like to grab a couple, thanks for sharing.

I also have the JConcepts 2 drawer bag. I use it for touring cars. Bodies donít fit. It could work but you really need to carry a lot to need one.

Currently I've gone with a canvas tote bag for now just because it was a freebie, but I am considering that Jconcepts bag since our mini z track also has an indoor clay track so I do usually have a good amount of stuff to lug. I just hope I can see one in person first lol.

I am so glad that I am not the only one that uses the tetris terminology for packing my mini-Z gear!!! It really feels like youre playing a game while packing. There is only one correct solution, and it changes each time you pack. Often for me, if I pull a couple things from my pack, I need to repack most of the bag to get it all in there. I often pack a tote in my bag as well, which allows me to pack quick at the track especially if I purchase anything. I pack my parts box on the way out, but can tote it to return (unless flying), and that extra space makes the packing take much less time and I can afford to have some gaps between the boxes which protect my gear.

seems to have better throttle and steering response. The default settings for the evo seem to be more aggressive, and there is more option for drag brake than VE.

the new evo unit gives you more power in motor than vepro ? And has more option settings?

It might not be more power, but there is better response so the power comes sooner when throttle is applied.

VE by default was programmed conservative. It was programmed for new racers to keep out of trouble with the fast motors that were equipped with the VE. EVO, by default is programmed aggressive, to showcase the increase in response by the CPU in the EVO circuit board. Where the VE had the setting for drag brake at 4 be default, EVO has more drag brake at 3 than VE has at 5. EVO also has much ore responsive steering. I do not have an EVO, but have tested my friends, and have long consultation with him. He has identical setup EVO, VE and brushed cars (3500kv and 70t).

For me, response is something that you can adjust to as a driver, and can still be very fast with a car that has slower response. However, switching between two cars of different response in a race day is difficult.

Got my new toys today😎
Anyone successfully connected the new EVO software through the PN bt adapter?It connected to my pc. And identified two COM ports that I found in the software. But on "read" or "write" the software stopped reacting.

Hello All,
Question, I have been looking for a TRP Renault Megane for awhile now and actually just stumbled on one here in the states which is the 2010 version. I have always been a "hot hatch" fan and the 2010 Trophy might be the ultimate hot hatch with a decent size V6 and rear wheel drive. Before I drop Autoscale money on a white body I was wondering how it goes? I am thinking about it for the GLA just because that chassis is pretty wide to start with and this body can handle decent offsets.

It seems that some of you guys have some experience with them.... :-)

Thanks.

Cheers,
Jim

Been years since I drove it, so I can't remember it's characteristics.
But I do remember that it looks cool on the track ;-)
