In other words they redesigned the parts that don't break to bring them in line with the high end breaking standard?

...for me, the best one was the TRF417V5. TRF419 doesn't sound right. Well, at least not right now.

Impossible, shouldn't there be a TRF418X or WCE or whatever before there is a 419 ?

If they changed the bulkheads, which apparently they did, then it's a 419. At least I believe that's typically how it goes. Certainly is interesting news. Gonna make it harder to sell my 418.

My son drives faster with our 417v5 than our 418.

Wonder if a new version is always better?

My limited English skills are not sufficient to understand the last two sentences in that paragraph.

Neither are there's.

Those sections do not make sense to anyone who does speak English as their first language!

It's a bit of bad translation

OK.

Sorry for the OT, but a little while back I was visiting Sanwa's website to look at the MT-4s and was compelled to buy by the following fine description of the MT-4s:

Entry for the race seriously
Feeling a new driving which collaboration
with peripheral devices produces
And more than anything, more enjoyable world
Attraction of MT-4S to add evolushon & scalability
to MT-4 of deep R/C

http://sanwa-denshi.com/rc/car/propo/mt-4s.html

They are selling some of the top high end gear in the RC world, and they do not have the resources to facilitate an understandable translation ??

you gotta think how much faster can the car turn with the same tires? At what point do you figure out that they are just recycling the same ideas over and over?
