Arrow 1/8 on-road car by Team Magic??????

Does anyone know if team magic have ever made a 1/8 scale pan car or if they are planning on releasing one in the future???

After seeing the new 'WC' edition kit for their G4 1/10 sedan and their E4 1/10 tourer lately it's easy to see how good the fit and finish is of the parts they have. I reckon x-ray might have some competition on their hands for the title of the "luxury vehicle manufacturers"

It would be interesting to see what they would come up with if they did decide to make a 1/8 pan car

It won't be a pan car though. It will be a 1/8 circuit car like the Serpent, Mugen MRX, etc.

Can anyone tell me why they used a fuel filter on the exhaust line and not the line to the motor??

Also does anyone know what that little circular thing is in the middle of the fuel tank on the top of it??

Does anyone roughly know a release date yet??

The filter in-line on the pressure side is to create volume. Without it, the lack of volume can cause a rich condition, it could flame out after re-fueling.

It work as a Pressure Chamber...if you don't want a long back pressure line, use the chamber (extra volume) instead of long pressure line...same fuction as GregH mentioned above.

If use it on the fuel line (yes, it is kinda weird it is a fuel filter afterall)...it will be very easily being ILLEGAL...

Release time will be next year summer.....at least.

What about that little circular thing in the centre but on the top of the fuel tank. I've never seen anything like that before on any fuel tank.

Any thoughts

It could be a fuel primer? .......

Or maybe it's part of the lid handle................ very hard to see.

Hmmm, not so sure about the badge thing. I have it on good authority (made-up rumour), that it is a catilizer, capable of converting additives in certain fuels (only available to asians) into a substance that mimics Nitro. The end-result is far greater power, and greater fuel economy. It is also capable of altering birth dates on passports!.
