Default Capricorn Distribution

As of right now there is no USA distribution, but i can say it is being spoken about and it will be worked out soon. Hopefully product will be stateside before the season kicks off here in the states.

As for the motors, yes the Capricorn motors are all Sirio based motors designed by Andrea Rossi.

Toso has told me, out of all the 200mm cars he has driven, the LAB-C01 has been the best, as you can see by the performance here in Fort Myers.

The Capricorn tires are Matrix foam, but with a carbon rim. The carbon rims look sweet and are also a little stiffer and more durable then the white nylon rims every other manufacturer uses.

Patrizio can speak more about the product as he is the owner of Capricorn RC.

Wish I could get the US distribution. Chris just won the Winternationals in amazing fashion. Car stalled on the start, was 2 laps down and proceeded to spend the next 44 minutes chasing down the leaders finally taking the lead from Ralph Burch at around the six minute mark, winning by 3 laps.

Heck of a car and a heck of a driver.

Congrates to Capricorn for their first U.S. Win and look out World's...this Combo will be one to watch out for.

If i'm correct the $800 includes 19% of VAT (sales tax).
For orders outside of Europe this will be deducted.

The price is somewhat higher as most cars because it pretty much includes every option you ever want to throw at it.
It is extremely lightweight, comes with Titanium screws, ceramic bearings.
It is a car for serious racers, not for bashers. And most serious racers will put around $100-200 worth of options in their car anyway, so I think the higher price tag is justified.

The bad thing is, that I have a brand new NT1 EC and 09 sitting here, otherwise I would be going for the Capricorn car.
