didn't know height had a positive correlation with food consumption.

Default KAI parts

I'm looking for the kai chassis kit for my 415, do any of you guys know where I can find Kai parts? I tried Control center, but they don't carry Kai anymore.

KAI does not sell outside Japan. If you know anyone from Japan and is also a Hobbyist then you may have a chance.

Believe me, I went to great lengths to acquire one during my Pro3 days and I already asked people who work/live there, and went out of their way to source it, apparently, they only sell to Hobbyist--- Japanese at that. Good luck!

Peace and Happy Racing!

Hebiki, your pulley is definately on backwards. Try to flip it (no pun intended). You're losing drive train effeciency and may cause uneven wear with the belts angled that way.

Lookin' good...

You should change your motor heatsing to one of these:


the fins are inline with the air flow...cooling your motor more effeciently...

rod, ill show u the car in person, can you please dbl check it if looks straight.. i tried to take the photo from directly on top.. but i think those photos are slightly angled. ill try to take more without the upper deck so there's something to compare with.

the reason i did that second pulley that way is because the one way pulley is right up against the spur gear adapter.. if i flip it around.. it wont be aligned up the same way... i dunno? it could just be me.

troy.. the heatsink is from Top... its vented.. works pretty good.

the spool is a prototype that is gonna be sold by speedtechrc. he should have them in shortly.
