This won't answer all your questions regarding roll centers, but it gets pretty close:

I really dont like using a switch, so that is my connection for the battery. Its just my preference, thats all.....And yes that is the MTX4 receiver cover. It does look sweet, but cant wait to get some track gunk all of over it.....

Speaking of new parts from Kyosho, the company has released a new clutch system. I read this article from http://www.rc411.com/pages/newsarchi...e=012007#29726. Anyways, I copied the article to save you time

Kyosho 2D Racing Clutch

Posted on Monday, January 15, 2007 at 9:41 AM by DerekB

Friday, Jan. 12th, 2007 - The Kyosho 2D Racing Clutch is specially developed for IFMAR World Championship competition and modern, high revving racing engines. This clutch has a special combination of features that produce very strong acceleration and consistent performance desired by the top racers in the world.
A new nickel-plated lightweight flywheel has a smooth, polished surface that allows the clutch flyweights to move smoothly and consistently. The red clutch shoe is the same high-grip material used in the 1:8 Evolva, which provides strong engagement with less slip, which reduces heat to provide consistent performance from start to finish. The clutch kit includes everything you need for installation - simply swap the pinion gears from your standard clutch and you're ready to race!

The body mount plates are really great. I would recommend them to anyone.

Default EVO-WCE rear blade sway bar issue

hi all, I just finished building my Evo-WCE kits. The only issue that I have not been able to reslove is the rear adjustable blade bar touching the rear belt. Does anyone encounter the same issue and how to overcome the problem ? I was thinking to shave off some metal part but not sure if that work. Any insight you have will be much appreciated. thanks............
