Gollleeeee. Am I the only one that is still willing to give this car a chance???
Okay, I've had some problems with it but it mainly issues with the king pins on the front suspension but that can be remedied. As for the rear toe as asked by someone, ever heard of using shims???? Ya, like I got an Xray and thats how they get more toe by clamping on shims on the rear arm mount. That can also be done on the KX and it could possible solve the rear end problem by giving it more stability.
Now as for shocks, everyone listen to me, DITCH THE STOCK SHOCKS!!! Go get some good quality threaded alum. bodied ones like Yokomo or Tamiya. Its a $60 - $80 investment but definitely worth it.
Firm springs and thick shock oil are my preference for initial set-up. Sways, sure. Don't forget this car has no droop adjustability, so you adjust it by using the threaded shocks.
BTW, I use the Hitech mighty mini or digital equiv. for the steering servo simply because the reduced size of the servo centers the servo weight more closer to the middle. As for torque to steer (did I say digital??) make use to use a Novak or any speedo that pumps a min of 6V to the radio equip to maintain max performance.
If any of you KX-one guys are looking, please post your comments. From what I heard from the Kyosho rep at Kyosho America, they haven't completely given up on the car. That is, there are still parts avail. and there are some parts coming from Japan that never made it here through Tower/ Great Planes.
Personally IMHO I don't think this new Kyosho onroad OB4/OVA/Seven 6.0/Alex car is really worthwhile at all. Someone there (Kyosho) should wake-up and consider more development on the KX chassis before letting it go altogether.
Oh well. I'll tinker some more and let everyone know. Thats if anyone is interested.
