yea dawgg the buggy is good I already know that. The Monster trucks just came in so I don't even have one yet.

new motors yes. right now I am working on variants of what we have. different carb crank layouts and such. Roto start conversions and the like.

also working on a few parts for the mongoose. A tricker ball diff, even better steering setup. Not that the swing rack is bad its just overly complicated. (bolt in option part that will become standard)

Rich Taylor I heard you were building a Goose! dat true?

You don't realise how trick this car really is untill you build one. An actual working monobox chassis, (the car is seriously stout) extremely low rotating weight, super low CG and everything is tight to the centerline of the chassis. more gearing options than any car on the market and it has a bumper that can take a real hit without cutting the front of the car off. And easy to work on.

Dennis,
It is a fact>
The only thing so far that i have had to spend a little time on is the steering setup. I talked to Brad and got the 411 on the servo setup. Will you be making the trip to Vegas in April?

I have ordered my Mongoose and pipe combo through the local Aussie distributor and it should be here next week. I can't wait to get away from the problems I have had with the front one-way gear breaking on my FT NTC3.

I ordered the low friction belts, some spare arms and the optional shock pistons to go with it so I have some spares and options when it gets here.

Our first race meeting of the new season here in WA is on Feb 6th. My local track is the same track that the Australian national titles are being held at this year so hopefully 10 months will be long enough to get up to speed with this car and have some setups ready for any others that are running the Mongoose at this years' nationals down under.

Cheers,

Mike.

Default Australian Distributor

Australian distributor is Pulse Model Motorsport. His name is Eddie and he can be contacted on 08 9796 1990 or drop him an email at [email protected] . If you have no luck getting in touch with him, PM me your details and I can pass them on.

Hopefully we can promote the RD name far and wide here in OZ.

Cheers,

Mike.

Dennis, not trying to tell you how to do your job, but shouldn't RD be trying to support a local distributor for a particular country rather than selling direct if there is an alternative?

For anyone in Australia, I can recommend the service and response of Pulse Racing highly. I have dealt with them many times and have never been disappointed.

absolutly they are always our first choice. Remember I am in another state from the warehouse and distribution so I am somewhat seperated from the dealer network. I don't always know who is dealing our products.(who our dealers are) I believe my first choice was for him to drop them an email for a local dealer was it not. This is also the reason the prices on the site are generally a little higher than what our dealers retail for. we want to encourage people to use our dealers first. If that cant happen direct is always an alternative
