Sounds good. Go to speedtechrc and drop about $100 on spares and you should be set for a season of racing.

I would buy the aluminum solid axle and springs and some shims for the hinge pin holders so you can adjust the roll center and what ever else you think you might break.

I have ran my car 5 times and have had 0 breakages and no problems. Won all 5 times.

hey after running the spool a few times I had a problems after taking a hit and rolling the car on the track it seemed to break the blades. any suggestions.

i might try the original front one way but with the spool conversion as it doesn't use blades rather metal outdrives, this might work or either wear the uni's out

At this time nobody in the states is selling the SHIN kit, or the conversion. Kyosho as not decided if they are going to import it yet to Kyosho USA. That is the last information I have heard. You can get it from different interent dealers outside the US.

i think kyosho thinks of the usa as a secondary market that they dont give a shit about anyways.they dont have product support and this is the 4th or 5th kit that they dont bring here,thats discrimination.i hope x-ray kicks their ass in evry racing class,or maybe they doing it already.

Sammy you don't even know what you are talking about
For any manufacturer that has a supply chain in the U.S.A.
The item has to have a demand for it & as of now there is not a demand for it. They simply felt with the asking price that it is well to expensive so they decided not to carry the kits in the U.S.A & it was including the SPADA as well they felt no one was going to pay x amount of dollars for it.
Sammy drop me a line

are u and kyosho out of reality?
how do you know if thre is a demand for it or not till you make your product available?
*they simply felt*!!!!....it goes by feelings now?
expensive!!!?how expensive?
why,people in europe and china and japan can afford expensive kits and here in the US we cant,are u serious?
xray have a car out evry year and they are flying off the shelf @430 bux,corally as [email protected] bux,and they cant keep up with the demand for the option parts thats another added $$.
and for your info any car that performe good on the track and have enough customer support will sell.period
may be kyosho is lacking one of these reasons or maybe both,you tell me george.
oh 1 more thing kyosho feeeeeeeels that the an rtr 1/12 scale gas spada is expensive to carry it in the [email protected] BUX.........REALLY!!!!!?.
MY 1/28 SCALE MINI Z Cost more then that with its kyosho up grade,and they have them in the US.
tamiya,xray.corally,losi,assosiated,even serpent and top sythc,felt thre is a market for thier ep cars in the US,but kyosho feels otherwise,lol.
i can send them and send you some flowers if that can change their feelings

LMAO - Finally someone gets it - Kyosho chose to go with an inferior design - then expected the Shin kit to "fix" the problem. Kyosho USA is sitting on cars no one wants because they aren't competitive. Now the Shin kit is too expensive and no one will pay for it? One blunder on top of another! My condolences to the team drivers who are now loosing their rides because Kyosho is loosing interest/money in creating a competitive product.

I see Cyrul is not listing Kyosho as a sponsor in his signature anymore - any news on that?
