ALU servo saver. Only the top part. Same size as stock one. Makes it feel more solid and turn better. Hole for oil and you can also plug it with an o-ring for better maintenance.
If the saver is not smooth, oil them up.
Hard anodized, available soon. This month is the release アルミサーボセイバー, only the top. Normal compared and no longer twist, will be easily bent even at the corner (^-^) seamstresses for prevention of oil supply hole is available, let you make the move once in a while, I was bitterly injected spray oils such as this hole. O-rings seal the hole with flipping through the O-rings of oil up: and keep working. It is hard chrome finish (Translated by Bing)

New alu servo horn. Longer by 2 mm will make it easier to drive and goes over bumps better.
It improves neutral feel as well. Picture is still prototype. Production will be gun metal color with lazer etched Kyosho logo.
Available soon... Is aluminum servo Horn released this month. Normal in direct and more plastic products, snap also compared to normal in pitch 2 mm longer and easier to maneuver in the gap. Photos prototypes and real products a little bigger, color Tokyo kyosho character laser engraving the quotient gunmetal (Translated by Bing)


there are two new parts freind him on fb and you will see what hes working on

They fit right in for me and they are 1 mm longer so there is more to flex before they fall out. I havent had any issues so far. I would recommend this to anyone that is having issues. I have not tried them in the front but they should fit with no issues. Besides that the k car is awsome!!!!!!!
+1. I put the Agama outdrives in the front 6 months ago and they still look BRAND NEW. Also, no issues w/ driveshafts popping out...

Now I wonder if the Agama truggy outdrives will fit the STRR... Hmmmmm....

But these Agama outdrives appear to not have a hole in them.. did you drill them?
(Just saying, cause most outdrives have a big hole drilled in them)

Improves rear traction on dry dusty tracks .. but the trade off is you lose some steering response.

If you guys prefer to NOT drill the hole and don't want the clutch bell to rub on the chassis run these engine mounts. There is no need to run Agama parts. The KYOIFW102 will raise the engine slightly higher and prevent chassis to clutchbell contact during chassis flex.

Looks like Amain has them in stock. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...d-Engine-Mount

Hope that helps guys.

I've been running the King Headz MP9 EZ Change Motor Mount -Extended version for several months now with good results.

It allows me to keep the engine as low as possible while providing a little extra support for that area which tends to have a bit more flex than the rest of the chassis due to the absence of structural material from the flywheel and spur gear slots. IMO, this helps to maintain a more uniform flex for the right and left sides of the chassis.

Although, just like the alternative Kyosho Mount listed above, the KHZ Mount cost about 4 times as much as the stock Agama engine mount which can make them both a hard sell to some .

It's always a good thing when we have options... the more, the better.
