STILL LOVE YOU....however, if I don't have to do anything, is better. Spending 30 minutes to work on the brakes is way too long for me after running electric toy car instead...

I have to redo all these NITRO thing all over again....found all my nitro tools last night and 1/2 of them are junk now...damn.

I will love you even more if you are not racing the BYRON race with the COBRA, like what you did to me last year....sangbagger...LOL

Thanks!
This is the only bag I know that can fit a GT any size in the bottom drawer with body and tires (hell meant to holder full truggy with tires and body). It has wheels handle and wrench holder on top. The two extra drawers are the same size.

Must warn you,I have the first version of this bag.Its about 3 yrs old now and I had to modify it make it work like I wanted.

I have both and have ran both.
R3 - very thin body which requires some reinforcement IMO but worked well on the track
PF8 - a bit more stout and also worked well on the track.

i have ran both bodies and unless I ran them back to back with the exact same car set up I honestly couldn't give you a specific difference. I am currently running the R3 from Max Velocity and it worked well.

I think some of it comes down to personal taste. The r3 appears to have bit more down force and is slightly wider than the pf8.

The Kyosho GT (also called GT1) is short wheelbase (buggy chassis). The Serpent and the DM-1 Spec are also considered short wheelbase. The GT2 is longwheelbase (truggy chassis). The DM-1 is extra long wheelbase and is considered 1/7 scale but it is also allowed to race in the same class (most of the time).

How do I get in contact with Paul Roberts from Max Velocity? I'm trying to order the DM1 Rear Upper Pin Holder, but his site is returning errors during checkout.

Default LRP.28 QUESTION?

We are limited of a max engine size of .28 so I have not tried the .30. However if the .30 is anything like the .28 then it will be a great engine.
