Their English level is ok, but may not as fluent as us... you know, sometimes it's really difficult to describe something "technically"!! It's interesting that Hara thought I'm Japanese when taking photos with him!!

Mars: Forgot to tell you finally I had a chance to "press" Umino's pro3: Wow, his dampers were so smooth... just liked pressing on some sponge... His setting is a little softer than us... This also happened to Team Kyosho's Kx-one... They'll get angry if I do a little bit more...

I think they changed setting because of the bumpy surface. I also soften my setup but perhaps I should have done a little bit more.

If you only have the mid oneway, you have off power steering(going into corner) but on power understeer(going out of corner)
If you only have the front oneway, you will have understeer going into corner and oversteer out of corner. with both mid and front oneway, you will have well balance for in and out of corner.

You may check on the xray setup book which you can download at their site for more explanation on front and mid oneway effect.

Ah, one more thing to mention. The JPL pipe (from Taiwan) is very good.
I think this is the same company makes the yokomo pipe. the looks almost identical.

I just learn how to appreciate a car kit with their quality, after I have bought so many kits
In fact most of the kits out there can run very fast, XRay is one of them, but it is also a masterpieces.
