With those rear lower arms....Motonica should do a contest and give a prize for the first to break one

Lots of settings can be done to the car.....canīt really wait to receive mine and starting to see how the car reacts to those settings.

I was rebuilding my motonica p8.0r using the pre '08 chassis and if i want to use the monobloc engine mount it hits the side belt tensioner. Had this part laying around for a while but never used it, so should it fit the chassis or do i need to mod the tensioner?

On my 08, using the monobloc and the side stiffeners (not the ones included with the 08 kit, but the older actual stiffeners used on the original P8) the monobloc hits the stiffener. A little grinding on the monobloc fixes the problem and that's how I have been running the car since.

Looks good and hope it works even better than what we got now. I think we'll have a couple of club races with it before the Motonica GP, so hopefully we'll make it look good there. You coming down for the next GLARCRC race?

This is a unique offer and one that reinforces to loyal Motonica owners the top notch support available from Motonica and Motonica USA. Your P8.0R 08 parts must be new and unused. For the list of eligible items and details on how to get the new parts, please contact [email protected].

actually i just want to find out and this program is offered worldwide from motonica website as the upgrade kit was already on the car. having the old for new is just a bonus for it. i haven't run this car. it is a beautiful display in my collection.

The program is worldwide. The reason I asked where you bought your car/parts from is because it is likely best to deal with the same dealer to get your old parts traded for new. However, I think the program is for new and unused parts. I am fairly certain it will not cover parts already installed on a car.
