I would guess it'll probably be close to the same as the ZX5 maybe. Which for me is 1.4x3 flat front and 1.6x2 tapered rear. Oils for me are 35 front and 32.5 rear at the moment. Just a guess though.

you will need to email them. keep your English basic and clear, advising what you want, how many of that item and where postage is required to.

they will quote you a price in yen, then when you agree they'll send you a PayPal payment request

Tokyo to Sydney Australia via EMS takes 2-3 days door to door including local customs/useless mailmen.. to give you an idea of their postage efficiency.

OK I have some more build pics.

These are not as detailed tonight as I was limited with my build time and wanted to get to a certain point.
I knew the ball diffs were going to take me a while to do. Plus I was looking thru my SC6 that I have to build too
(also not sure I want to load the thread up with a heap of pics)

I have one tip so far when building don’t screw the wing mounts in until after you screw down the 4 screws when mounting it to the rear diff case.
The wing mounts cause you to have to the driver on a slight angle so not the best when screwing into new plastic.

Looking great.

Is this the best buggy you can by? My last Kyosho was an Ultima ST. Also, how are the hop-ups for this vehicle?

Cheers for the likes with the pics
I will try and do more tomorrow night but have be careful as the wife might file a missing person with me building this then the SC6

If anyone can enlighten me on what rear toe the kit has with D in/D out and also what rear anti-squat it may have would be cool.
I'm guessing 3 degree rear toe and ~1.5 anti-squat

Are the steering knuckles going to rub on the front arms like they did on the zx5? When we ran more droop in the front end of the zx5 a dremel was needed shave the arm slightly for clearance to turn the wheels full lock. I hated that about the old car.

I was going to order a new steering servo for this buggy and having only had an RB6 2WD I'm not sure if I need a full-size servo for a 4WD or if a shorty will cut it?

I use a KO Propo RSX one10 Response in the RB6 and it's great. Would use the same servo in the ZX6 if I could as it's lighter than a regular size servo and would allow me to swap between cars if needed. But does the 4WD put a LOT more stress on the steering servo? Should I be buying a beefier servo?

If the rear suspension blocks are like the optional RB6 ones then D in/D out would be 6 degrees of Toe. D in/ D in would be 3deg as would D out/ D out.
