i dont have a lhs so it whouldnt matter i just get parts online anyways.

now, i know its the driver that makes it fast compared to new truggys so you can drive this truggy hard ?
I've driven only a couple other brand trudges and I'll always stick with my ST-RR until I can't get parts or if I get bored etc. I had a problem with steering into corners ( off power steering) my first race, what fixed that was actually dialing in my brakes ( huge difference), I also run the 20 degree hubs which are better for off power steering. I run my truck with the high block and B and L bushings and wow I cut corners like my buggy at times. The truck accelerates and brakes perfect, it really reminds me of my buggy say just with bigger tires. Also after I put my truggy on the Hudy and dialed in my camber and toe the truggy was soo consistent, after about 5-6 races racing truggy I couldn't be happier, I actually won my first race with it last weekend!

just for the record, if you run full lock-up on the brakes on ANY truggy, you are going to blow the gearbox apart. They all do that. They're going so fast, and they're a little heavier than a buggy, and the wheels are bigger. When you lock up the brakes, it's VERY hard on the drive train. Just watch your epa and bias, and it's fine.

i talked to a kyosho team driver and he is the one that told me its discontinued .... they are still making parts and getting rid of the rest of the kits but they are not making anymore kits. he also said that he is pretty sure there will be a new with slight upgrades, not major changes but ones that were needed....

well it, doesnt sound to hard to get it where you want it to handle maybe there will be a big discount on it since im hearing that it isnt being made anymore .

maybe in january it will be cheaper is it hard to build ?

I work for Kyosho, so please let me know the name of the driver who said it's discontinued.

Houston, I think it's a different part number. I'll have to give them a call and see if there's a new number or just a running change.

You need to give the name of the guy... that's totally 100% wrong.

Hmmm... let's see, "buy now"... I guess it's not discontinued
