Cut the plastic part where the lower arm pin goes through.

Becareful, cut small amount on each side equally or else you will end up with different toe-in.

Actually, depends where you race your car. If you race on slippery surface, I will go up to max 3 degree toe-in, If you race at permanent track that have good grip, the standard 2 toe -in is fine.

Car "was" belong to the Kyosho Team driver from Japan (Itoh) , now belong to friend of mine in HK also a Kyosho driver.

The centre of gravity is now very low. the main drive shaft and pulley have been lowered by 3mm. the batteries sit on the middle but lowered. you can adjust the batteries to move further up
front for more steering.

I don't think any time soon. Most likely is the saddle battery pack layout and harder servo saver available next year, just guessing!

Default broken kx-one chassis

Have anybody broke kx-one chassis ?
I have two times broke my chassis
Kx-one's chassis seems very strong but have some very weak point.
The from and rear suspension arm holder , the chassis will break from here when have big impact.
It looks like the suspension arms are strong then the chassis ,so the chassis broke.
The under of the chassis all the line are the weak point.
Anyway to strength it ?
Kyosho have a new optional part KXW010 seems to strength something ,but I don't understand japaness (no pic)
Anybody knows?

By the way kx-one's server saver is really too soft.
You can see the wheel direction is what you desired when in a turn.
Must to change it ,you'll feel more direct to steering.( I use dean )

The from onyway , TECH has 6mm oneway ,but I cann't buy it at here.
But you can only buy only oneway bearings to replace ,it is much cheaper (only US.$5 for one) it is made by Germany (INA).
