Thanks for the vote of confidence MIke, but lets face the facts, some major comp in the 12th mod class, c main will be a nice goal..LOL

The car did grab a little interest at home though the past 2 weeks, it has turned the fastest laps on the layout by 2 tenths so far, and it looks real smooth doing it. So far all but 1 person who have driven it liked the way it felt

Default "The car would never work at a big race!"

Huge congrats to Mike Haynes for doing such a great job with his Mx2 at the IIC. He took a car that "would never go in a straight line" and made it work! This was the FIRST BIG RACE for the Mx2.

Thanks for believing in the car! This is just the beginning of a HUGE season for you and the car.

Thanks to Eric Dimmick for beleiving in me and for putting together such an awesome car.

I was hoping to put the Mx2 on the track this afternoon. Work is getting in the way again. Hope to get it on the track tomorrow. Mimi's will be a good test for it for me. Then on the 7th I'm going to take it up to our indoor asphalt track and run some stock 12th scale.

Congrat's Mike on your great runs in Vegas.

Got to run the Mx2 for the 1st time. Ran 4 packs 19T at Mimi's "The Track". Had it running the same lap times as my L4. The car seams to carry more corner speed. Which I always had a problem doing with the L4. Not bad for the 1st outing. Next week I will be running it at our indoor asphalt track. Guy's at Mimi's liked the car. They where really surprised how well the car handled. Great job Eric.

Product Update:

For those that might not already know it, We are now selling complete kits for all of the 1/10 and 1/12 cars that we produce. We are also producing our own outdrives for the X-ray T2'007, T2 and FK'05, which are black anodized and a direct replacement for the standard kit ones.
