Before installing, just remember to disassemble, clean, locktite set screws, then lube the pivots, and your set

This car is very well engineered and laid out

Zero issues here, and yes I have tested the rigidity of our track barriers


I have been running the same set since the day I got them. I think a week or two after the car came out and no issues. But like stated if you get them take them apart. Use loctite and rebuild them. Make sure you lube them with AE black grease in the joints and at the cups.

What's the name / part number for that truck body? I might have to try that in our scale spec class.

Just picked up the "FULL OPTIONS" race package. Should have it by tomorrow! What! What!

The retail price is around 10,000 Yen, so about 90-100 USD.
