i run 5k,7k,1k in mine. i have a vspec in it and im all but cooking the center it feels like sometimes. ill be trying out 5,10,2 just to see how it feels in the next week or so. for most other motors it would seem 5,7,1 would be the hot setup. that is unless your gonna run some hot modified motor, or something with crazy torque like a .26-.28.

back to the topic at hand

so maybe i would be smartest to keep my K2 instead of getting a 777 or what about just keeping the K2 and getting a 777 and if the 777 is getting tossed i could use the K2 as my back-up buggy

i really like my K2 alot and selling it wont get me much anyway but i think that parts for it may dry up and then i will be stuck with a broken buggy that i cant fix

plus i decided that i couldnt make a buggy last 2 seasons anymore they just wear out too much and then are unreliable

Default Mugen?

As a former mugen racer I would have to give the nod to Kyosho.

I never thought I would own a kyosho but now that I do I don't understand why I have always been a kyosho hater.

Hey tex any news on the set up front. I have some new things I am going to try this weekend.

But for a car that is not suppose to be good I have yet to see one not win locally in capable hands.

I don't know why you'd hate kyosho either.. they are good cars..

at our track.. my mugen has won every race since I got it.. even with the pros showing up.. it's more driver than car.. before that I did well with the ofna car I drove

there is advantages to each car.. I think the mugen is a better car personally.. some people just don't know how to setup a car.. kyosho does a better job offering setups.. that's how I see it..
