Did the next SCC kit go out the door? It has been two months since the last kit was delivered and hoping to make a rally or two this year!

Its complete should go out on Wednesday, then your on your final kit so I guess rallies are looking good for this year.

Looks like things are progressing nicely on a number of fronts. Those roller wheels look quite heavy, hope you have had your weetabix before carrying them around the factory. Keep up the good work.

we are producing this kit along with kit 23 of the Agi the machined parts are done but all the seat parts need fabricating and we have a backlog in that dept so we are still looking a couple of weeks (we are as eager for your money as you are for our kit) it will be as soon as possible.
