the first thing you talked about was running a lipo in a radio he didn't ask about a radio just the rx
and I didn't mention anything about a nomadio radio

And now it's time for something else besides the electronics (skip that discussion, search in the Electronics thread and you will see you'll need a KoPropo transmitter/receiver, hitec 7955/7950/7940 and lipo)

I received my new rear alu hubs today from Japan, very nice and blingbling!















I need some testing on the upper mounting holes for the upperarm. In theory it will give you more steering I suppose?

jesus I wish I hadn't replied..I was replying to post 2809 by didrace about lipo availability for a nomadio react..it was all off topic anyway..sorry for any misunderstanding.

back on topic.nice alloy rear hubs...the lower holes look larger ..are they supplied with plastic inserts or is it just the photo making them look bigger? I love the plastic inserts kyosho fit between the bearings and steering knuckles at the front..just seems to give a better bearing fit and of course much cheaper to replace than the whole hub..do these rear hubs have the same blue inserts?

The 4 upper mounting holes look like they are 2 above and 2 below the original plastic holes which means you can change the upper arm angle and thus the roll center from the outside as well as the inner mount on the shock tower..without looking I think there are 4 holes for the inner mounting so this setup gives you the option of 8 upper arm angles instead of 4 with each additional angle being 1/2 way between the standard ones plus an extra 1/2 at each end..I think that makes sense????

Roll center is more about weight transfer than steering directly but in conjunction with other settings might certainly give you more or less steering..

They are sold for 5.775 yen in Japan, I got them a bit cheaper at Champ RC.

The hubs are not supplied with inserts, don't need them. the lower mounting holes (pin) are the same size, and so are the bearings. You don't need the nice plastic inserts for the bearings, but they fit perfect.

The upper mounting holes on the alu hub...the 2 'lower' ones are on the same height as the ones on the plastic hub. They added 2 above them, so that gives you just 2 new setup options.

Just browsing at the Japanese Kyosho site on 'new parts'..there seems to come an ifw411 item...bablefish translates it into something titanium for a light weight chassis

Hi Guys. The IFW410 hubs will be at K-America in about 3 weeks. As mentioned they don't use the inserts, but you need to use Kyosho bearings because the tolerance is very tight. The price is in the 60 range but I don't know officially for sure yet. 5775 yen is about 65 bucks so pretty close...

Hi guys. MP9er, yea, we recently made some tweaks and are running the short rear camber link and less toe in. The car just seems to get round the track more quickly. We will use this everywhere unless severe conditions call for changes (which usually happens lol).

vince, haven't run them yet, but we are anxious to try. I am really glad there is vertical adjustability for camber link position. That can be very helpful.

Oh yea, almost forgot, here's a couple videos for you guys...

i have one race season on my mp9 and im restoring it for this coming season and i was wanting to get a new chassi and i saw foroni made one on amain are any of your guys using that one? (Fioroni Kyosho MP9 Hard Coated Ergal Chassis) or am i better off getting the Kyosho chassis? my plans were to replace all bearing thruout the whole car,get the updated diff cases,updated front upper arms,updated rear carriers.... i perdy much have all of my spares from last season front hubs,rear hubs,wingstay,all bushings,ive checked all the diff cups and there hardly any wear on them, the only thing i really broke last year was front arms 2 to be exact so i would like some suggestions on what all to update? the hings pins thruout the car r in real good shape and all drive axles seem to be also in great shape!!

also i use the stock pistons?? is there a better piston combination than the stock?

another ? the rear stock toe brace what degree is that? if434

Bigboytoy. I'd save the money. You can get a stock Kyosho chassis from ebay for less then $50.00

I scored one for for $38.00 2 weeks ago. I'll never spend $100.00+ on an aftermarket or stock chassis again as long as people are parting kits
