Lee... that is a great looking body. Well done.

Ivan... the weather is bad here (good chance of snow here in the valley) and racing is at a standstill.... I know you will get the parts out when they are available... I am generally patient... as long as it happens now....

From a post of mine on page 11:

"You will note that the diff action really loosens up after the first couple of runs…. To the point where the tightening nut hits the stop before applying any pressure. I added a small washer between the pressure fitting (SD004) and the tightening nut (1179) to allow adjustment. Doesn’t need much pressure…. Just a little to allow you to control the diff action you want."

You can, with different thickness of washers, tighten or loosen the diff action as much as you want approaching a locked axle.

Zoot thanks man, as for the diff trick i will try that, you mean a washer on the back of the diff adjusting cone? havent got my manual to hand. I pretty much have always ran tight diffs on my tourers way back when, especially with the street weapon lol.
Once i run it ill decide, but im leaning towards locking it up maybe.

Yes...the extra washer is between the cone and the tightening nut.

Adjust to your own taste.

No problem, Ivan. Racing is pretty much over here for the season. I will test the new parts whenever they arrive. Thanks for everything.

I got the Honest parts in Today.Later today i will get invoices to everybody here that ordered them.
On a different note here is a picture of the Kyosho Carbon chassis. YOu can see that its built a little different with an alloy pod for the motor. It dosent look as it is attached very well. BUt this is the best picture ive got right now.

The carbon chassis at the Hobby show was once again a prototype and ther isnt a date for it or price. The guess is next year we might finally be able to finally buy one.

i am sold out of the Spada right now,but in October we will have the New Spada with the Porsche body in stock.
I need to get pictures of it scanned and put up here but i couldnt do it tonight.Sorry
Here is my little English page on our website, The Spada has links to the parts that are all in Japanese but it is pretty easy to figure out how much things cost.

I enjoy the Spada and with Zootcarpi`s help the advancement of the Spada is advancing. It great fun to drive the Spada and its really simple. Most of the Guys that run touring cars at the Kyosho circut are starting to convert.
Do you have any in stock yet?

About how much would it be in US dollars as far as the cost for the kit? How much will it cost to ship it to the US?

You will be the first to get your Honest parts, But loking at them everything seems fine. The front brace is pretty thin up front but i dont think it will affect anything. I would be a little worried about slamming into walls but with the front design of the Spada that little brace across the front might not make a difference. Also with the carbon chassis combo it should make for a very sturdy car,That is a little more forgiving from bending the chassis.
I really like the little teflon bushings on the front brace. should help keep the front suspension form binding.
