Kyosho's full Japanese price for the Shin edition is Y81,900, that's equivalent to 350 (ex VAT, over 400 with tax), or USD $685 (before tax), of 500 Euro (before tax)

That is expensive! Needs to be a lot less than that on the streets to sell in any quantity I think.

In comparison the original Stallion is listed at Y66,150.

Hi again George I am running 40wt front and rear, yellow spring front and
red in the rear.

As I said it's not that bad, that the car is slow out of the corners, it's just
now I'm thinking about it more than I should when I'm driving.

I think to me it would be a caster issue so I'll take the 1mm spacer out of
the rear front mount and see how I go this Sunday.

Im using the same spring combo with 30wt
I think it has to do with caster might just be a little aggressive on entry which is how I like my nitro car to be

I`m Using 40rear and 60front yellow front and rear but thats not realy important for the hole car setup. You must look to all your setup changes (drop, steering geometry, bumper postitions....) for talking about the setup.

Look at what you did....Good Job pricing with Kyosho cars is something as a shop we've been discussing a lot with them. Kyosho makes great quality high-end cars, but the price tag just puts it out of reach for most consumers out there. We hope the Adachi edition will give more out of the box at a lower price tag...(keep your fingers crossed!)
