I have only been using the 30mm FAST and Ellegi tires....they give me more than enough grip already!

No, it was those movable triangular barriers they use. On the first count my car crept up onto one of those and because they were not exactly aligned....it took a big chunk off my bumper. On the second occasion it was worse.....full speed down the straight and I got a little close to the end of those barriers again......full speed to zero in about 2 feet....that was how far I managed to kick one of those barriers with my RR!!!

Have bought the kawa and original v1 bumper.....it should work!!! I can combine the two together using the front body mount post holes...this will give it much more strength....you should consider it Manticore!!!
haha, great story. I am quite happy with the kawahara bumper alone. i do crash but not as serious as yours.

u using the kawahara rear arm set for MTX? how is it? any feedbacks?
the finishing of the arms are top notch. very light weight. you still need a 0.5mm shim so that you can use 30mm rear rims.

I consider this unit is cheap when you have everything you need for solid axle. just buy another one. the kawahara adaptor does wear at the cross pin area after excessive runs.

u mean u had to shim the hex nut in order to run 30mm foams? i thought it can take Zacs 32mm, so 30mm shouldnt be a problem.

i mean i need to add a 0.5 shim to make 30mm rim fit on the axle. you can use brokomo 32mm rear rim without modification as it is 2mm offset rim.

yes, it is black derlin. or they call it machined nylon.

i have a set of ZAC tire but havent tried it yet. the shore front and rear are very much different so I am not interested to test it out anytime sooner.

I noticed the K factory blue rear gear is also available now.....it would have saved me buying a full set of Kyosho had it been available earlier!!!!
