Had I set the upstops to prevent the car from bottoming out with the tires at full size, they would be non-functional when the tires got to 63 or 62mm in size.

OMG dude, your right!! I didn't even notice and I was on there trying to help this retard out. All I can say is, I hope he gets the PT1 or Edam or Pursuit or whatever they call that car this month. I just don't want that dude on our killer thread that we have here. Everyone on here rocks and I hope it stays that way. So I'm going to go now and tell that dude that the PT1 is the shit and is the best car for him. I wonder if he'll believe me with my avatar.

Yes, for anyone out there who owns the P8.0R or is looking to get into one, Paul has a very solid inventory and is very helpful. He'll be one of the first to get the upgrade kits as well.

Motonica is the title sponsor for the annual Las Vegas spring race, so I hope to see as many of you at the event. There is a thread already for the race. I am trying to get factory reps and drivers from Italy to fly out for this race as well.

I think I can see where everything would go. Looks like they wanted to give people the chance to run AA battery's inatead. So the made a larger battery holder, and to do that: Amended the Chassis. radio tray and fuel tank. Then the carbon fiber brace at the shock towers upgrade to include the shock mount holes, (not just through the plastic), and a fix (similer to Mugen) for the rear body mount. Looks good....

I am not sure if the new tray accepts AA batteries, I'll check on that. I think the main impetus was to improve flow of fuel from the tank, hence the upright tank, and the upper tray and chassis followed suit.

I have the R version and wonder if there is any specific difference with this R 07 upgrade kit, say chassis, bat holder and fuel tank?

Garen dude, all that stuff looks awesome man!! I'm sort of confused, this is the '07 upgrade and theres only about 15 days left of '07? Is the '08 kit going to have these updates or '08 updates? Or is this sort of an 07 and 08 update because of the time of year? Anyway, we all want this cool stuff, so how soon will it be available do you think? Thanks for the update bro. Very nice. I'm sort of curious about the new front bulk heads. Is this to accomodate the new carbon bracket or the chassis itself?? Not too sure. And the new top plate has those 2 round parts for screws or something, maybe for a PT?? K bro, talk to ya soon man. Thanks again for the info!!!!
