Default Any One Race "ova" Cars???

I was wondering if any one race OVA cars out there? Just something different and I just want to learn new set-ups. Anyway, I drove a CL03SE and now I drive a T4.

Somebody at our track here in the USA was talking about the Ova car the other day. It looks pretty slick. He said it shared a lot of similar parts with the Yokomo... is that true?

I have never seen one in person...

The CL03 series does not share any parts from the Yokomo. The whole car is made of Delrin, graphite, and aluminum. However the front end of the CL03 series can use HPI Pro2 parts. Such as steering hubs and C-hubs.

The Inqubass shares parts with Yokomo(MR4TC). Still a cool design but not to many people race this version.

The new one I bought is the T-4. It also shares front end parts from the Yokomo(Special). Just the steering hubs, steering rack, and C-hubs. The whole layout of this car is nice. I haven't raced it yet but I will know how it is this weekend if it doesn't rain! Some of the parts are Delrin, chassis and top plates are graphite, graphite plastics parts, and the rest is aluminum.

Anyway, I guess OVA's are not popular here in the States.

"over gear"

I bought the T-4 at CHAMP R/C in Tokyo when I was there for Christmas. They had the best price out of all the r/c stores that I checked out. It sells for $367USD. I also bought all the replacement parts and hop ups for it as well.

If you are in the States, I think California R/C can get it for you since they have stock on some CL03 replacement parts.

"patcollins"

Yes OVA cars only turn left because the tracks in Japan race counter clockwise!
