PaPeRo, refrain from anymore of you pointless, negative comments. There has been enough waste of bandwidth here and we certainly do not need anymore from you. If you do not have anything to contribute constructively, then do not post anything at all.

Thankyou.

Can we please keep this post on topic

I don't know anyone here as I have never been to America, except LA Airport on route to Hawaii in 1999 for a KWC Worlds final

FWD racing was the best years I had back in the 90's, I was even dominant with the Kyosho Nitro FWD cars, so am very keen to read up on FWD racing.

So again ...
Please keep on topic

Not got pictures
It was the Kyosho Mantis chassis from the late 90's
Think it is well forgotten by now, as the motor they used was crap and unreliable (unless the pipe was pointing upwards)

Please reply with what chassis is that first Tamiya CAD drawing on page 1 of this thread. Looks like a FWD version of the TA05...?

Edit : I found out its the newly released FF03 Pro. Available anywhere yet?

I remember the fwd mantis. They even made a nitro fwd mini chassis!

Did the nitro ones have springs in the suspension arms instead of proper shocks like the electric versions?

My FF01! Rescued out of the cobwebs after 12 years and lovingly restored until completely race-worthy again. No class for it in South Africa anymore, but I race with TA05's with a Castle Sidewinder system and kick butt!
