I had a good outing with my new 12th scale Saturday. I finished 2nd in the "A". I ran just as many laps the first time out with the car and was only a tenth of a second off my fastest lap time on this layout. Darkside and Full Throttle make a great combination. Anyone considering a new 12th scale car should seriously look at the Mx2.

I'm glad to see all of the good results that drivers are having with the Mx2 chassis. I want to particularly thank Mike Haynes and congratulate him on his outstanding finish among a stout field of drivers at Halloween race at The Gate this past weekend.

Going forward from here, Mike and I have been discussing some refinements of the Mx2 for the future version of the chassis. He will be piloting a prototype version of this car at the Cleveland race over Thanksgiving.

Paul, Yea the car works well for stock right now, but i want to get it a little better for the faster classes...it will actually make it a bit faster in stock i would think. Eric and i are going to try a few ideas to make it easier to drive, but still turn the same laps...this will make it faster overall.

That sounds great Mike. Keep me updated on the progress.

Had the Mx2 out for a 9 hour test and tune yesterday. The car is really dailed with Parma blacks front and back. I want to try next weeks test day different caster blocks. I've tried 5 degree on my L4 and the car was lazy, but smooth. We will see what it does to the Mx2. And I want to try the Protoform 12 body.

Eric the car is awesome. Can't wait till next weekend to race it on the rug at "The Track's" Cleveland Warmup Race.

Steve-Try the 10 degree and let us know what you think. I am sure you will see a difference.
