  • I like the design of the CVD ends/diff outdrives...pretty trick. Should distribute the load better and reduce the need to change out outdrives so much from gettting chewed up by the traditional single-pin dogbone end.

  • YR4Dude,

    Removing the topdeck in order to take the layshaft out is not that big of a deal I think. The way the bulkheads are right now is the best solution for proper flex.

    Hebiki,

    I think that the car still has cell holes in the plate is due to the fact that they are still using cells in Japan at some races. The chassis is optimised for lipo though, the car is perfectly balanced and the lipo holder works flawless. I actually like the chassis to be a little bit wider, this way your lipo won't touch the asphalt and will stay in perfect shape.

    Maybe Kyosho will create a lipo only chassis, but there is not really a reason to do so.

    The car can be bought from the Kyosho online shop. I think stores in HongKong will also have the new kit.

    The drivetrain works flawless indeed. Very very smooth and can't see any sign of wear on the outdrives/axles. The pin that goes trough the driveshaft is also a little longer then the thickness of the axle, this reduces wear too. It's all in the details
  • Quote: Vasco..thanks for posting. great support from you. too bad this car wont be supported (from what ive been reading on this thread) in the US.

    one question.. why no lipo chassis?
    I've heard that both Asia and Europe are still using Nimh sub-Cs for 5-cell races. Hence the reason why there are still chassis cut out for sub-c's.

    Also Chris take a closer look at that picture and notice the size of the spur and pinion. It looks like they haven't gotten into the variable timing speedos yet.
  • Europe is all Lipo as far as I know.

    We had to use handout speedo at the ETS. No timing indeed. Normally I'm using GM speedo with variable timing obviously.
  • YR4Dude?

    The reason for the spur and pinion size is that that they used a speedy/motor combo with a fixed timing to get as much close racing as possible.
    It was tested at the ETS at Heemstede and most of the drivers where very happy with it and told everybody that this was stock racing as it should be.

    regards Roy

    Roy,

    That is something we've only started trying to get here. However, it has not been so popular and participation has been somewhat spotty even despite Novak Electronics offering to help support such a class by offering a low cost ESC & motor combo. The fixed motor timing class still hasn't caught on.
  • Hi,
    whether somebody knows perhaps what parts (c-hubs etc.) it is worthwhile having on service stock??
  • anybody know?
  • Personally I always make sure I have at least the following spares in stock;

    - Front + rear wishbone
    - Driveshafts ( + driveshaft balls! )
    - Front and rear belt
    - Chubs
    - Steering knuckles
    - Rear hubs
    - Spool outdrives
    - Spur gears
    - Hingepins

    Those are the main things to have in my opinion.
  • Who distributes this car in the States???

    Go get one Chris.

    That way I can buy it off of you in 6 months for 1/2 price.
  • Saw one of the guys at my local track running this car. It looked pretty solid.
