Have to say I like it, but its a bit pricey, :unsure: but if you offer the performance as you say it's worth it.
I see you are using Fly body's for the chassis in 1:32 and what are you using for 1:24?

PdL

Congratulations on launching the new site! Best wishes and continued good luck to you!

As you know I have been excited about your cars for several years and have a few in the stable so seeing this notification got me going! Nesta says your cars are pricey but compared to what you get elsewhere they are more bang for the buck than the other RTRs.

I signed up to create an account but as yet have not perused the entire site. I did look through the "new products" section hoping to see a 1/24 wheel I'd like to be able to buy but it's not there yet... a TSRF wheel for the Indy Grips 3101 tire for which I have adapted your THP2405 wheels to fit.

See HERE.

This Indy Grip tire also fits the BRM cars and could be a spec tire for some sort of series. (?)
Maybe we could even use those Porsche bodies like you use Slot-it bodies in 1/32.

I did see a slight mistake in the listing for the THP2412 TSR/Ortmann rear tire. It states that the tire "fits over THP2403 or THP2406."

THP2403 is a front wheel with no set screw and THP2406 is an optional body mount. What the description should say is that the tire fits over the THP2405 wheel(?). You may want to verify that I am correct and change that before someone builds a car with tires on the body mounts which would look like a tug boat. :laugh2:

Anyway my intent is not to pick the site apart, only to inform you of this one possible issue.

I am hoping that I can use this renewed effort on your part to convince some of the Arizona Garage Racers to start a 1/24 series now and eventually a 1/32 series as well.

As always, best wishes.

Thanks, Dave, this is what I need, competent and informed help to fix any errors! :)

A new aluminum wheel is in the works for the 1/24 scale chassis to fit the very tire you are describing.

Scott's kids are playing with 1/32 scale TSR cars at the museum track and at 28 months old, already stay on track and race each other... :laugh2:

MUCH easier to use than the other site. Don't know how I missed this the first time.

The tech help and the step-by-step assembly instructions, with great pictures, is the kind of manufacturer support that we all wish we could get. Nicely done.
