nothing wrong with kyosho.... there front ends are a little brittle.

when you get it, boil the a arms front hub carriers and upper front arms, and any other plastics that you feel will break.

the front lower arms and hub carriers are what i break most.

but since going to alum hub carriers i have only broken 1 a arm since and that was because the wall was pushed away from the fence and i happen to catch the edge..

also i use a little red locktite on the king pin screws.

i was told to make a little mix of "purple" lock tite
by mixing just a bit of the blue in with the red.

seems to be working for me as i just put almost 2 gallons on the truck since then and have forgot about the front end maintainance, now that i have the truck almost bulletproof.


people say the diffs are week.... maybe they are but im not having a problem, someone also said the hot bodies d8t ring and pinion are a direct fit.... again i dont know about that one.

just shim the stockers nice and good and you wont have a problem as i have not.

Awesome, awesome job Timmie!

About time Chris.... Thanks for the props buddy! I'm confident that our "lethal combo" will prove itself more and more this year and beyond not only with our own equipment but with our clients as well.
