To Hungary it already has arrived, so I think it is also available in other European countries as well.

Hmm. Looking at my pit box the lightest I have is 3k. Is that too heavy? What are the difference in handling characteristics using lighter or heavier oil?

i think some guys were running that 'heavy'...and the effects would be equivilant to tightening/loosening your ball diff...but Hiro or Korey might want to give you a better explanation - well one better then my lame one

Thank you.

Just got done ordering the Mazda 6speed body and some tcx decals.

Now I'm looking to getting a 17.5 stock motor, what are you fast guys using that is a good match up for this car? I already have the Novac Kinetic esc

D3 or the Rev-tech motors are good choice. I'm testing out a Team Icon motor this weekend. The people I've seen running them are pretty fast.

Express D3 or Express Revtech. The revtech is faster but may run a little hotter but does make more overall power than the d3. Gear accordingly and check temps often (every min or so for the first couple runs on a given taller gearing to make sure you don't smoke it. If it feels like its going soft check temp)

Cheers
