well, you can try the $40 one ! the braking disc shown on the pic is of very high quality! even better then the kawahara disc.
When i replaced the stock disc last night, I found that the adaptor holes on the stock disc has already been elonged badly even I havent applied much brake before.
I'll bear that in mind. The disc is one of the things I haven't replaced to the RR. Same as you... figured I won't be using it much!!

Or, I have to switch from Pro2 to Pro3 in order to achieve this "GOOD" result ? anyone can help ?
No.. you first have to buy a Pro 2 to feel the improvement!!

Do you know what turn motor they tested?

the kyosho VSD body is available seperately but I think this body is ultra thin and not good for bashing !!

Frewer is still the way to go !!

It appears to be the thinnest of the lot. But in terms of mould quality it is the best....... just don't hit me on the side!!!

Mars: Thanks for your concern. My car has poor acceleration and under-steer in tight corners and that is where I've lost a lot of time. No doubt that the SP is a very stable car but refuse to attack tight corners. I've tried the 3deg. caster but it created new problems at high speed corners.
We normally race on a tight & medium grip carpark. Andy Lam previously told me to "pull and lift the rear gearbox forward" with the long upper tie-rod, but I still try to figure how to do it. Others also told me that I've to do modification to the rear gearbox to improve stability in tight corners? I was also told that the SP MUST use the team Suzuzi 'white' front one-way and ball diff pulley with the new belts to improve acceleration and efficiency??
I think the tricks people mentioned about the drivetrain of MR4TCsp are not must haves. Actually the stock parts included in the sp kit are fine stuff, including the diff pulleys. are you using shims to take up all the play? too much shims can bind the rotating parts. I run a pretty normal Masami setup, with some modifications in shock length and camber angle. The car always perform to my satisfaction. Hope you won't abandon the car too soon. It can be improved
