I saw it tonight at Jet. Nice finishing but the graphite parts are so cheap. Well, 1.6K is a good price. You only need centre one-way and anti-roll bar kits for options.

I agree he drives so well but he is very very rude and has no sportsmanship.

Other Japanese drivers are much more gentleman than US drivers. I respect them even they lose.
I guess some americans still havent figured out that World War 2 was finished 50 years ago!!!

My Tamiya HG compressor is NOT mickey mouse! Donald Duck maybe but definitely not mickey mouse! im using it for my scale model work and it never let me down... well... the Badger rubber hose kept blowing up on me (i'm now using a Badger braided hose that can take up to 100 psi without blowing up) but that's another matter...

what are those air tanks? just mini tanks that stores air?
and how bad was the compressor without the tank? how strong was the pressure?
like dtm said, it's a water / moisture trap. it catches the moisture in the air and collects it in its reservoir. periodically, you have to remove the collected water by twisting the knob at the bottom of the trap... at least that's how my trap works. By the way, i am aware of the racket the Tamiya compressor makes. that's why i made a vibration-absorbing base for my Tamiya HG. cuts down most of the noise...
