they advise if you want to coat it to sand lightly first and then cover thinly only and checking the motor clearance afterwards.

the pulleys might sit to tight due to manufacturing tolerances and the way the top deck is screwed down. so they advise to screw the topdeck down little by little and keep checking the clearance of the pulleys. if it gets to tight they advise to remove some of the shim that is between the pulleys.
That is a fairly fundamental oversight - not one I would expect from Yokomo.

$520.00 - That is more than every chassis on the market. Tamiya (416 World's Champ), Xray, Corally!, Schumacher, 1-1/2 of Hot Bodies, TC5, Losi, Top and not to mention I have seen a fast TA05 (it would be 2 of those).

A Mugen MTX-4R with a OZ motor is that price!
That kit should be no more than $420 plus the wake up and smell the Pacific Ocean crazy shipping from overseas! Can you say 8th scale on road price after shipping. Is this why I started playing golf?

We don't know the actual pricing except for one retailer. I don't know if this will be the normal price once the Kit is available through other Retailers...

Well, if they do a lot of the development at their site versus out-sourcing then bring the product back in after it is made, would cut down on prices a ton. Otherwise, I see absolutely no reason for the $500 price tag. Especially the fit and finish quality of the pulley in the center and the motor mount being tight.

Sorry Yokomo, go back to sleep. I wish Steve was still representing you guys, but I will just settle for a TOP Racing car.

+1, no blade system, 1 servo mount neccesitating shoe goe, poor clearance between the layshaft pulley's and then they want $500+ for the roller.
