Ivan... Is this guy in your town too??

Do you have a 'line' on this stuff?

It would be easy to mod the radio tray to fit the Losi tank.

I am still interested in the actual run time that you are getting with the stock tank.

Anybody actually timed their runs?

These new parts i will have to look into Wednesday. I like a few of them and the prices look pretty good. Even that top deck is pretty cheap.

My run time is a guess of around 3 maybe 4 minutes.I tend to run it untill it runs out of gas.As this is my first Nitro car i am one a learning curve.
So around 3 minutes i get good performance out of the Engine,then it starts to lean out..

Ivan, I am constantly amazed with your service and how fast EMS gets the parts here. They arrived today. The RONY chassis looks amazing. The pipe should help too.

Installation tonight!!

My manager is made some calls today about the HONEST carbon parts.
The parts totalled up its around 9544 Yen for a complete set of the HONEST carbon parts.EMS shipping from here in Japan should be pretty cheap as carbon is light. I cant discount the parts with our usall 10 % but its still pretty cheap for a full set of parts
If you are looking at just a few of the carbon parts Just add 5% for sales tax on the price on the Honest wedsite and that what is would cost.
The only bummer is EMS minium charge to the U.S. is 1500 Yen
and the UK is 1800 yen.I thinki can get the full set shiped for around the minium price, but you would save on shipping if you just bite the bullet and get a full set.

The motor that comes with the kit is pretty basic. You can get some alloy parts for it but the carb thats on it is all that i know about. The engine came from the Mini Inferno .09 and by what i know about the car it was kinda of a flop here in Japan. So that might be the reason that there hasnt been that much for the motor other than the alloy parts.
But with the Spada i have sold more of the Engine parts for the .09 in a month than the whole time we have had the MI.09 for sale. So we might see some more fun stuff for the engine later. I hope anyway.

I will order you a set in the morning, it should be around a week before i get it here to send out. Might be a little sooner.
We havent ordered from these guys before so im not shure how fast they will be but a week is reasonable.

The real question: Will Kyosho bring it here?

There are already several in the States.
