Yes, the Pro V2, from RcMarket.com, item ID 16582(I'm not allowed to link, yet, not enough posts here...) BTW, I noticed that site does not function well in FireFox, so I went back to IE to order.

I have seen the Honda HSV in the flesh, not yet owned / driven one. I now have this:

[Bugger, it seems I'm not even allowed to post pics, yet. Bummer. It's a bright yellow Ferrari 458.]

On my tt-01. Pretty well behaving, too, but not as spectacular I think.

Cheers,

Hugo

I have found the honda hsv to have well balanced handling characteristics and looks awesome.

On a side note, Tamiya also included fluorine coated suspension balls in the v2 kit which is nice

It seems quite a complete kit. Would aluminium suspension mounts make a big difference? A proper allen head screw set is probably called for...

Yes, aluminum suspension mounts make a big difference to the responsiveness of the steering.

Towerhobbies is showing limited stock. The only thing the kit lacks is away bars, otherwise it's a sweet package.

I picked up a yokomo bd7 RS in the interim, awaiting this kit. Now that it is here, I'm torn because I didn't get a chance to really try out the yokomo.

Alloy mounts are night and day. And they don't really wear out either.

The kit does include Allen head screws. "Hex screws" in the list. Seems Tamiya are finally listening.

Won't be long till I get my hands on the kit. Big thanks to stella models for their super fast shipping

My steering is super erratic.
Sometime is trim 15 left
Sometime is trim 35 left
To go strait
There is a lot of play
And I also shim the hex
Will change all to alum helps?
Thanks

A worn out servo saver will change its neutral position after a knock (or even a bump on the road), forcing you to keep changing your steering trim.

It also can be a servo problem, either the servo itself has gone bad and won't center or the servo is not being provided with enough power by the bec so it can't center properly.

Those are areas I would look at first before upgrading anything else

Thanks so much. I will get it out and try to tighten around the area you mentioned. Or see if my spare yokomo servo saver fits or not..

Confirmed both servo and servo saver is loose. Replace with my spare yokomo servo saver. Thanks again for your help

Towerhobbies $299 - $45 (tower club members) $254 (shipping is free but stock is estimated for late July)
RCmarket 167.00 got mine..
