All the top end models are great, technically Sanwa has the fastest response time but they are all so quick it's not an issue

Brownouts, failing receivers, models getting wiped if you turn off the power at the wrong time, etc. Seen a few locals spend $$ on the high-end Ko stuff and then get frustrated with random issues, then replace it with Futaba or Sanwa, and be happy.

hi guys,

I am just building up my 419 and notice some question:

1. Did you use additional shim for steering to fit perfectly? I put 3x5x.1 as well.
2. New Diff looks awesome hower during install it to the car i feel needs some shim for outside bearing. Bulk is 24.1mm wide. Did you experience a bit right-left move?
3. Rear uprights looks tight a bit, is it normal? I have 417v5 and it can move free
4. One of the double carden doesnt move smoothly, it gives some "noise" despite using grease.

Thanks for your feedback.
Marton
