image is a llittle small RedBull

Wish I could go grab a nice speedo like that off the shelf, all I have on my shelf are very dusty cd's and lots of them
I need water proofing for my electronics, this country is just too darn wet The MRT is a great speedo anyway.

kenshin,

Hehehehe...seriously though, the Keyence in my opinion is worth the money. Industry rumor has it that Keyence is the only company that uses the correct components (FETS) for our purpose in R/C racing.

maybe I'll get one for my second cuda thats a long way off though

any more race reports from you guys in the states? hows the cuda going?

I'm hoping to raise some cash soon, I need a water proof reciever and the MRT KO one is 80 why are KO recievers so much more than Futaba ones

hope you managed to get the alloy transponder mount in the delivery that left yesterday Steve, are you going to be getting the alex racing titanium screw kit with the wrench?
Did you ever get a ceramic bearing set priced up?

Well RBF put me in a house of pain by beating my Evo3 with his Cuda last night. But then his Cuda got beat by TA's Evo3. Fish Sandwich anybody?

I have to agree with Steve. I have a Keyence zero V extreme also and it is compact, reliable and the customer service is second to none.

Also, Steve, what is the latest on the new shipment of Cuda cars and parts? Maybe looking for a red one with a PAL drive system to go with my blue R2.

Thanks, Mike

Unless you have the new Mars radio Futaba recievers will work fine with a KO transmitter as long as you use KO xtals as will most other brands.

hmm interesting, I've always heard futaba uses a different frequency signal thingy method. Think I'll go for the KO anyway, safer bet and it's smaller too not to mention the funky graphite look case

you let yourself get taken out RBF you know the cuda is stronger, use it to your advantage

I use Futaba,hi-tech, Novak and KO recievers with a Vatage II without any problems. I agree about the graphite look case though


Also if you get the new KO high response reciever you will be able to use it with KO's new radios. What radio do you use by the way?

I have been looking at the Keyence speed controlers,Right now I have a V 12 and a GT-7 but they are in my other TCs and i'm lazy,so i'll just buy another speed controler rather than swap controlers..
