Mo is sponsored by Yokomo. It's a pretty good kit so far....lol Pretty nice. If he had a ton of parts for this thing I'd be the first to put it into the wall No bleeder screws for the shocks. They now have a bladder type deal.

mo: Any chance you could talk to Yoke about getting me a kit for review here on R/C Tech?

I would love to be able to do something comprehensive (and timely) on this car, especially because I plan on driving one.

Mo - well, I'm jealous. What electronics are running? I'm trying to decide on an ESC because I know I'll be running an XXtra rx for sure and space looks kinda tight.

rod_b: I am running all KO equipment. 2173 servo, Mars 2000 ltd radio, and VFS esc. Also, I am running Team Luna motors.

4PlayRacing: The parts fit was great. Using all of the recommend spacing of the arm, everthing fit together with NO slop and the suspension arms and hubs moved freely with no binding. I only had to trim 1 part. The ballcups on the steering ackerman link rubbed the fron suspension mount slightly so I sliced a little off the end of the ballcup and everthing was good. This kit is top notch. It was very easy to build, even though my instruction book was all Japanese. Don't worry though, the production kits should have English instruction too...lol

I'm off to the track now to see how this beast runs. I'll give you all anoter report when I get home, probably around 6 or 7pm.
