Spend more time practicing. Save your money in case something breaks.

if u don t have one, you can buy a comm lathe with 1 or 2 friends, it is quite expensive for 1 person
pinions, tires, springs, oil, .....brushes/spring, comm stick....set-up tools .
save for your girlfriend too ....a trip in a small island outside HK

the kai chassis is far more expensive than 130$
i think you should buy the new 1-way too
a comm lathe is used to "cut" the commutator on the motor's armature
after a few packs the comm starts to get "dirty" (dont know how to describe in english ) so u need to cut it with a comm lathe, which is pretty expensive $70...so it is why u can buy it with some of you friends .

if you are afraid of pneumonia go isolate urself in one of those tiny island around HK take ur sunglasses and an off-road r/c car!

there are 2 kinds of kai...the super limited (70 kits) and the normal kai with less stuff. all i want in the kai is the upper deck. and the normal kai is 11,800 yen like 800 hkd. and whats the diff between the old one way and new one way?

okay....the comm lathe thing...? waht?????????????

the new 1-way won't break like the stock one during a crash, so u won't need to replace the gear each time .
I guess u want the kai chassis especially for its cool design, i don't really like the tam'chassis design, but u won't improve the performance with the Kai .

Hi Davioh,

With a Hudy Ultimate Setup System you can measure your ride height, toe-in/out, camber, droop...etc
Just check out: http://www.hudy.net/
You will also find some comm lathe info.

Where do you race ? EGR or PYC
