Hey Jimmy, sorry i missed ya too.
i ran into Rick and Greg, i was busy tuning my car and trying to get some track time.
the practice sessions were brutal, 18 guys on the stand is way too crowded, had a great time though.
im gonna try and find time to make it down for the New york state championships, if not, there's always next year.

You can purchase " The Whip " at ace hobbies. They have 3 boxes full of these bodies.

I would get the Ninja engine and pipe combo. To be honest it is the easiest to tune and runs the same everytime you put your car on the track. Idles great and starts easy. Not to mention it has a low price point and really fast. I used one at the GLC in the main and it was fast enough to lead the main for a while before I had other problems against the $600+ engines.

It come with body only. We left it up to the racer to use whatever body stiffener and wing that they like.

Mike Swauger, where can we get those oversized mugen decals, like the ones in the pictures.
the new MRX4R decals are pretty cheesy and boring.

Great! then I'll get one or two bodies for testing and I'll await for the EFRA homologation number. If is like the Kyosho Dome, for sure I'll love it.
