Hey Josh- I wasn't knocking the design at all. I figured you'd take from what you know and work to improve on it. I think it's very interesting and I hope you do well with it. Out of curiosity, what was it that PW was helping you out with? I was in his pit when you came by to get something from him.

Osherman - Paul's car and mine were identical other than he had roll bars mounted with a different suspension set-up. I don't have any pics though, sorry....

jw92656 - Thanks!!

edseb - Thanks and will do!!

Kraig - I might have but I've spent most of the past 2 days taking care of family (I'll e-mail you in a bit) so I might have over looked it...

kylehirano - By the time I'm done, a dremel should not be needed (I know, hard to believe with the things I always do...lol...). The car should be good to go on foams and rubber tires. A release date and production schedule is up to Kyosho, it's just my job to make it as fast (on the track) as possible.

Jeff - Thanks for the words!! See ya at the Nats!!!

Jon - We used Schumacher rear diffs (much easier than getting all new diffs, rings and everything else made in such a short time). He had told me that the stock thrust race that comes in the diff wasn't good and he hooked Lemieux and myself up with their aftermarket thrust that was really good!! Thanks PW!!!

Wonder how Josh is making out and if they are going to refine the last design some but stay with that rough layout.

I'd really like to see the shaft design go into production. It may be a "copy cat" design, but it's still killer!

I asked Josh at this past race about the car he was running. He told me that he was using this older car so that he'd have something to run. Kyosho is still developing the car that Josh and Paul Lemieux ran at the Reedy race, and we should see a newer version of that car in the upcoming months.

I watched Josh put this car in the A-Main on his LAST qual. run.All I can say is that car was dialed!!!
Would of loved to see him run Paul for the win.That would of given us a better idea on how well the Kyosho stood up to the challenge.
