3. I see you got one of the 3 racing tire lathes - what do you think of it and did you order directly from 3 racing? We don't have a 3 racing distributor here in South Africa.

Good looking car !!!
1. - try this combo 50/16
45/19

2. - Pulleys from here: http://www.team-titan.com.tw/

3. - RC-Mushroom online, awesome lathe cant complain works a treat


Hope this helps =)

Sorry for not answering questions earlier...

1- First shipment of tires is coming, and should be here next week. I will have pricing next week, but they are going to be in the $35/set range.

2- The one crucial option part for the P81 is the ergal mid shaft mount. Most of the other option parts are tuning options- carbon chassis plates, blade rear sway bar, etc. We have not yet testing the new option parts, mainly the new gearbox and rear shock mounts, but I am pretty certain those will be used widely.

3- Aluminum pulleys: Yes, Titan makes them as do some others, but the Titan ones are good and I use the 16T and 18T in my car. Faan, I can try to get them for you from the US importer.

4- For anyone waiting on the P81E conversion, they should be here next week along with P81E kits, new option parts, and all missing spare parts.

I Mailed Motonica with that exact question - no reply yet but as soon as I get one I'll update this thread.

As far as I know no new car in the works. Just speculating, but perhaps an '2011' kit with some of the new options is probable, but otherwise the car is good (and still young) and nothing new planned.

Doug, the track looks really nice. Don't think I can make it to the October event but hopefully next year for the Worlds.

I'm working through the Motonica Set-up guide. But there is one thing I don't understand - the dynamic camber adjustment. How do you adjust it?

Default questions of comparison

Hi, I am new to posting things on forums so I hope this works. I would first, like to know if anyone out there has driven both the Motonica p81 pro and the 2010 velox v8. Second, if so, would you please compare them. I am interested in both and can't decide.
Thanks for support
Joe
