They are not being produced anymore, it is outdated, you won't be able to get parts for it.

I don't think of it so what does that tell you.

Did you get one 2nd hand or something? They have'nt been sold for a few years now but I'm sure it will go ok at a club day. Have not seen any race at a major event for a long while.

If you do decide to take a plunge and buy this car, I know where you can get some parts for it. Mike's Hobby Shop in Porter, TX actually has three brand new Proceed kits that they acquired in a buyout of an old hobby shop a few years back. They can't sell the kits so maybe if you make them an offer, you could pick up three kits for spare parts at a reasonable price. Just a thought.
