i think they have put in a lot of research effort on the topic.

originally they plan to do the research in Moon, but they found a rabbit there and dont want to pollute the envir.
and then they met mr. kelvin p, he told them his home is good for their research, so they all go to Mars to continue the study.

you should ask ah leung to sell you his 5 hours piston/sleeve which will be much less expensive then 20+5 us$ !!

I am so surprised that they took back a washing machine fuel tank !!

Have you try to clean ball bearing with the fuel tank while you run the car??

actually it is dangerous to do it in Earth, the dirt from ball bearing will kill the engine. but it is not the same case in Mars.

The Tamiya shop next to me may have it.....they have a lot of old stuff!!! hehe.....
yes, the JACC is FF01! and where is that shop right next to you?
or should i ask Waigo... ? or just go for FF02.. which looks pretty ugly...! basically a M04 with extension....servo is really high and the motor is behind the front axle.. not really a FF!
