So are you going to give Pro class a shot?

I thought it was cool, ive got some other stuff coming too, including a limited edition Hakkinen Mercedes cap, the thing about this stuff is you can not buy it!, its one of the perks of being in the Automotive trade!

Oh well... off to clean my car .
Did he also point out that you were running on a track 2/3 the size of the one the pro cars were running

Loved the move on Glenn though, you're our designated hit man for VORTEC.

It's not 2/3 the size is it ? Yeah, it is a little smaller but it shows how good a car the 'S' is.

Oh well.... never said I could or would race in Pro... only going by Glenn's theory .

I felt bad after I took him out .

ChrisO give me a V on S anyday over the tc3. I've owned a v1s and I'd have to say they are of the most consistent cars doing laps of any track in Australia, before you say but, I've also got a NTC3 which I've tried to run in pro touring and I have to say they are the biggest pieces of S*** that I've ever had to drive. Fragile, inconsistent, torque steering just to name a few problems. Put a high powered motor in the chassis and they just don't cut it. I though the K factory stuff might improve the package a bit but it didn't. Needless to say the car is now up for sale and I have gone back to the Kyosho family ( V1RR , S3 and Rody X12 ). The ntc3 is an excellent car for pull start engines but it's still fragile, I bet you've had to put diff cases and other hop ups on the chassis in an hope to make it a bit stronger. That's my veiw anyway. Good luck with the car.
