Big bore shocks, front & rear lightened axleshafts, WC brakes, 14 tooth CB & 48T lightened spur gear to start. Big Bore springs would be medium (light green) or hard (Blue) depending on track type.

just finishing my WC and need a little help...I;m using an ace 1313 servo and having trouble with the throttle linkage. Not enough space between the bottom of the servo horn and the servo body for the mounting screws that came with the kit? Any advise or good pics of your throttle/brake setup would help.

kanai deals with Kyosho International
Losi works for Kyosho America

Big difference
Kyosho would not have brought Losi on board if they didnt need him. They need a new design. Its a great car, but you cant just throw a couple new hop-ups on a car once a year and call it a new model. Technology will leave you in the dust. Just watch this year at the worlds, 10-12 buggies in the A-main will be RC8's and Losi's. These are lighter and more nimble. Kyosho needs to make an all new design, thats why they brought on JR.

Billet knuckles (never broke the stock ones, but changed these for peace of mind), WC chassis braces (stock ones pop off if you look at them wrong), the optional rear antisquat plates, new bonded brake pads or Craddock/Racer's Edge fiberglass rotors (you lose quite a bit of rotating mass using these), rubber sealed steering and driveline bearings if you run on muddy/dusty surfaces, and the new locking wheel nuts....maybe a hex screw kit (seem to bite into the plastic better, but the fine threads take more revolutions of the wrench to get them in). That's all you really need :-P

Just an FYI, while Kyosho does not OWN Kanai. It IS a Kyosho buggy as anything developed while he is employed by Kyosho is the property of Kyosho. This is fact. It's also rather naive of you to try and say what Kanai would think about Gil helping in design. There is probably a better chance that kanai has much respect for Gil's design abilities, he has how many world champion cars under his belt?
