Default Look at this...

Check out what I stubbled upon in my web surfing... These are some of the clearest pictures I've seen of the saddle conversion.

Very nice pictures.

Do Kyosho offer a complete kit like this? Whats the price of the conversion kit? Is the conversion kit avaible in Europe?

Thanks.

The complete kit, does it include parts for changing rear toe-in and caster? What about droop screws?

seaball: sorry for the late reply. Not much to report on the KX-1 front. The racing scene here in the Topeka/Lawrence/KC area has kinda been in flux lately, which has kinda downed the enthusiasm for indoor racing for me. So I haven't been racing in about 3 weeks.

But, heres my notes of my experience at my last race:

-Even though the track was not suited to the one-way, I still put in better times than with my shaft drive full time 4wd car. And thats considering I'm still driving conservative with the KX-1 since I haven't hit Towerhobbies for any extra parts yet.

-I don't like the car with full height foams. Still no tendency to roll over, but the car doesn't handle as well as I want with the full height foams on.

-With a 19turn spec motor in, the car is frickin' balistic! I just don't understand why I don't get that same feel of speed with the same motor in my other car. Both cars weigh about the same, so thats not it.

-I took about 4 hard hits to the front wheels at this race, and not one problem with the front one-way! Sweet!

Future plans for the car:

-I plan to start testing more with rubber tires in preparation for the (hopefully) soon to come outdoor season.

-These new pics of the saddle chassis are really getting my attention. I still love the original chassis though!

-I have been sticking with the kit recommended set-up till I got a feel for the car, but now its time to start experimenting with new set-ups.


Again, sorry for the delayed response, I just haven't been racing much lately. That will change come warm weather though.

Leon: thanks for posting the link to the pics!

Default First outdoor experience...

Man, this is where this car belongs. The thought of traction rolling isn't even in your vocabulary as you zip around the track with the one-way being the perfect setup for the wide open out door set up.

Speaking of the one-way...I'm afraid I'm going to have to agree with Kyosho on this one. If you run the front shocks with the up travel limiters on them, this thing is as tough as any other brands one-way. I hit it all yesterday. I hit tall corner dots at high speed and I clipped the inside of the sweeper at highspeed. Each time, I flinched, figuring that that was the end of my one-way....

...Nope!

The thing just kept on working. I was runnning the car with a Chameleon motor and tried it with foams and rubber tires and a Losi Alfa 156 body. The car maintained a flat composur through everyturn. I didn't think the rear sway bar was very strong, but apparently its enough to do the job right.

All in all, a near perfect day of outdoor running with the car. Other than a slight push at low speed, the car had no ill handling effects and was quite easy to drive fast.
