Old kyosho hexes are 19mm. The current standard is 17mm. The MP6 and older buggies had to use kyosho only wheels. I'm not sure if new hubs will fit on the MP6.

The front diff on the K3 is the same diff that came front and center on the K1 and K2. It's the TCD diff. For most tracks the standard diffs work better.

about the LSD diff it comes to the driver choice. some of the driver like the LSD instead of the std diff.

like my self i like use the LSD instead of std diff coz it suit my driving style

all the LSD is same for KANAI 1-2 or 3
only the oil is different. for kanai 1 it comes with black oil and for the K2 or 3 comes with red oil and the red oil is thicker.

So how is that different from a regular diff.

I saw on Ebay a complete rear diff, would that work up front or is it different?

Have a question for 1/8 scalers

I can get my hands on eithier
Used- Ofna Ultra LX, comes with a wack load of spare parts

Used- Ofna Worlds 2, roller with a couple of alum hop ups (diff mount, Susp Arm mount, fr. Bulkhead, wing mount, bb steering) and no spare parts

Used- thinder tiger EB4- S2 (just roller nothing else)

I plan on racing it, one problem is my LHS stocks no parts for these so ease of abilty of mail order parts is must. If you could tell me which one I should go with would really help because I am an idiot when it comes to 1/8 scale buggies.

the most competition worthy would be the S2.........I would really suggest getting an OFNA Hyper Pro though

I've heard good and bad about the turbo clutches... I've seen them burn up so bad they turn the end bell blue... but, some people love em.. prep your bearings and adjust proper spring tension with the right combo in points on the pad and you should be good to go... the ones I've seen burn up are negligent mechanics... be good to you car and it will be good to you..

on another note.. if you're spending money on that.. why not get this???

it should be a hell of a lot better..

I run mugen aluminum shoes with .9mm to 1.0mm springs... I am very picky and the mugen clutch combo is extremely reliable..

I personally will continue using mugen alums.. I have not a single reason to change.. my shoes last for a good long time and run very very consistant that whole time.. I would advise against it unless you have figured out how to use a standard clutch with success.. meaning.. no blowing bearings.. no overheating.. no slippage.... etc... it will just waist your time and money... but, I will as paco raap if he knows
