That is the Japanese version to celebrate the victory at the JMRCA nationals. I believe its is only sold in Japan (it comes with a Yokomo lipo, new plastic blades - which last much longer in mod than the original black ones and the new ecs cvds).

You will have to check with your local hobby shops for availability.

Tried that? From the vids, the car seemed to steer pretty well. What motor class are you running btw?

Try my one from the ets

http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/yoko...030/index.html

Caster is 4 not 2

Or for tight corse use more ackerman (2.5mm) springs hpi (silver/pink) or yokomo (pink/blue)
