Well at least you have the possibility to upgrade, the decision whether to upgrade or get a new kit is yours to make.
And yes the quality provided by Capricorn has it's price tag, but knowing this quality will result in faster lap times I'm happy to pay for it.

I agree with you,but my issue is why did they release an updated car,"European Editon" and two or so months later come out with another update which cost the racers even more money. You know they had to have already been tooling up for this latest update before releasing the European Edition. Dont get me wrong, I think the car is a great handling car. I just question the business practices of trying to get more money out of the racers when they could have waited until this update was ready for release in full kit form.

Default 2011 Capricorn AARCMCC Australian IC Onroad Championships

This tread has gone awfully quiet, but here are some news:

Capricorn driver Stephen Jovanovic won the Australian National Titles this last weekend. Shepherd driver Jeff Hamon was second and another Capricorn driver Ricky Vocale third. http://www.redrc.net/2011/10/jovanov...ian-nationals/

Peter Jovanovic (Capricorn of course) had TQed, and was leading early, but was forced out of the race by a faulty steering servo.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/australi...ctober-11.html
The support from P.J. senior and Capricorn Australia at the event was just awesome; ask for something and it was there. Parts, advice or equipment; you name it, P.J. never stopped helping the Capricorn team, and a member of another team actually mentioned to me how impressed he was with the support that our team enjoys.

Kindest regards,
Lars.



P.J.

How did it break? Did you use your cut top deck with the brace Johnny?

Kindest regards,

I didn't realise that you got hit, sorry about not paying more attention. I hope you had a great time at the event. We always come home happy from the big events, we better come home without failing in a semi one of these days only.

We may come and visit you at the NSW titles in 2012 if they are still held during school holidays. We're also interested in the Serpent event if it's run as a lead-up the week before. We shall see.

Kindest regards.
Lars.

I think the new kits are going to be out the end of the year. Maybe in time for Christmas, but not sure. Just what I think based on what I have been hearing, no one has given me a actual date.
