2 grams heavier than the mugen 3mm?
The kawahara 4mm is 1 gram lighter than the 3mm!Wow! Don't that just beat all!

yeah post back on the 4mm chassis, I want one since 301 is my home track and so high traction, kind of curious if it would help. Althou I have yet to race my 4r there yet due to such a busy schedule and racing 1/8 buggy also. One more thing, how are you liking your red dot compared to your ninja I see in your signature

well i havent raced it yet, sunday will be the truth teller. its the stock red dot not the evo 3 or tuned. but i hope its a good one. great reviews on it and the evo and tune came from this model, the ninja was fine but i shold have changed my rod. literally it broke a day before i went to go get the rod.

i never had to change a rod or bearing in any of my other motors before.

the red dot broke in great once i found the right mixture, and it idles great, even from a full throttle. my ninja was always lean after full throttle?

Hey guys, what diff oil do you reckon i would run in the rear if i was using the lock diff in the front. This is for a tight technical track aswell. i have 30,000 in there at the moment but i don't think that is enough.

Cheers,
Tim Berends

Ask group A drivers in that track, and copy the setup they use.

Oh I see

IMO, I would test using softer spring at front before changing rear diff oil.

FYI, XRAY makes 60K and 80K silicone diff oil
