Nice looking car. Will there be a Z8-R or something along those lines which include the optional parts now available?

We may do that sometime in the future, but if we did that you guys would have nothing left to buy..lol

Seriously at some point in time we will more than likely do a team kit with some of the hop-ups alreay added, but the car already comes with 7075 towers, chassis braces, cvd's, ect. the rest is bling

Does the current car come with captured hinge pins? It looked like the early car build pictures had e-clips.

Default z8

currently the only thing I am running not stock are the hinge pins. Chassis is great and all the upgrades are on the car unlike other kits.also notice the toe in and antisquat and front hinge pin blocks are alum not plastic like others.

Gidday Guys

I run the Nanda NRB-3 here in Australia, awesome car, the upgrades i recommend are the CNC steering knuckles, stock are 15g CNC are 10grams..CNC engine mount retainer , CNC rear uprights and the most important is the Front lower pin holder Rear, it reduces flex and stops the bushes in the front from coming out..... some of these parts may be included in your kits to start with...

awesome car that can only get better

also found with the capted pins on the front upper arm mount limit adjustability because they intrude on the servo saver tensioner, I just cut my servo saver spring to make it shorter and it worked a treat...

The car works great, so far it has known a great sucess in Portugal.
Any news on the bb's, i heard they will be very Kyosho look alike, besides the stock shocks that are great for European tracks, we have been trying the Kyosho and also the Hong Nor BB's and both work great on the car aswell for big jump tracks.
I'm sure that the Radical will have the same sucess in the U.S.

Hey Guys,

Steven Drygalla here from Australia.

Just like to introduce myself to all you guys. Also to let you know i will try to help out as much as i can with setup advice and so on.

For the last few months i have been running the Kyosho Big Bore Shocks on the nanda with great success. I have made a few suggestions to the boys in China, and with what we are talking about, they BB shocks should be very nice inteed. More info to follow.

Haven driven for Kyosho for the last 6 years, and having had the ability to test other brands whille deciding where i would go after my departure from kyosho, i can say that this is one very special car. Very tough, awesome handiling (especially with BB) also the car has a super smooth drive train.

I will try to get a setup sheet together and post it up. I pretty much use the same setup all around, just make minor adjustments...

I hope to do some major meetings next year as well over seas. Defiently the world titles

Thanks for the info Stephen. Looking forward to more input.
Have you run the car with the kit shocks?
Hows do you like the cornering ability?

I have run the car with the stock shocks and in a long main, I feel they are not up to the task. This car can carry lots of corner speed as well. It jumps really well and on a tight indoor track, 3-5-2 diff setup was awesome!
