SV -

There are a lot of variables to consider.

If you can post your setup - that would be helpful and we can start there.

The three major areas that can effect cars in with tires, springs and body. Everything else is a slight tweak.

Also let us know what you running for body, tires and type of surface. If it helps you can also PM me.

Not sure where you are located....

In the US, Ultimate Hobbies (http://www.ultimatehobbies.com/istar...epage.template) or other dealers, Kyosho America (http://www.shopkyosho.com/), or if you are outside the US http://rcmarket.com.hk/

Default Kyosho Touring car

I have had this car for a while and love the car. I too had problems with too much off power steering but have since figured out the problem. Just email to [email protected] your setup and I will respond back with what I have done. I am also a Kyosho dealer. So I can help with the parts problems.

OK so what advantage is there by getting the Shin edition? I also am wondering if I should try to campaign a different car seems like parts are hard to find etc. Is Kyosho going to plan on developing the car more? I am tired of buying a new Tamiya every other week but at least I know I can get parts and setups etc. Unfortunalty my Kyosho has one 3 min run on it and has collected dust ever since.

I don't know if it is known for that.... just saying that I whish there was some people who used this car so we could share setup info experiecnce etc. Since I like Kyosho products I now own a Stallion, but like anything else when you run a car nobody else has at the local track the only info and ideas have to come from a board like this and I have been wondering if anyone is still running thiers or have opted to go with a more popular chassis choice, which in turn this car will not be supported in parts etc, if there is no demand. Just trying to see if the investement is going to be worth it, by talking to people on here that have more experience.
