Thumbs up Brand new car

Issac: if you just want a brand new one, this might be a good choice. Those options on it are necessary, not just for beauty. But if you want to build it yourself, then forget it. Jet might have the options you want/need. Macky has already mentioned that the price is very closed to $500 not including the one piece motor mount with shaft holder from One Flag.

For your information only.

Just around 1.5kg. Thanks to the excellent design with only a few components.

Has anyone used the new center one-way shaft? If so is it any good?

Well, it will make the car turn rounder and faster at the straight. It makes the car feel more like belt car.

Default red alexmobil

hiyas fellas !!! i bought the blood red alex car from ron meloni it is a beautiful car well built and hopped up .
i got it together and ran it in pro stock this weekend it was very well balanced and drove very smooth .......i have a few complaints not to ron meloni but to the designer..........here they are
first of all the arms are very soft
the c hubs and rear hubs have a lot of flex as well
this car had almost all of the options i still need threaded shocks the offset tabs for toe in adjustment and im gonna get the alum c hubs and rear hubs but the most important mod i see for the car is the torque kit for the front upper camber link ...................
for those of you who are wondering i tq'd with the car and had never run it before the first qualifier ...........skipped the second qualifier just for fun got hammered in the first corner very hard and it tucked the body into the chassis it was fixed in time for the leaders to pass me on the first lap lol i was able to pass every car on the track to finish 2nd .........lemme know if anyone has a line on the parts i need to finish up my red monster .........

Just out of curiosity. Why would you need HK store to buy the parts if you're from Japan?

You can go back a few pages to find links to HK stores.

Because every store here in the Tokyo/Yokohama area doesn't have any Square/Jet Aluminum steering knuckles in stock Plus I'm in the Navy and we will be going there soon so it will give me something to do while I am there

Some of the Square parts are very similar to Jet's parts, especially the rear bulkhead for the Pro 3. I know it is same as Jet. But whether they are made by Jet, I will have no comment on that.

Another thing, some of the HPI micro's part is from GPM.
