Yes... Thats a big problem, but this is the first version, to test the car on the track... If it runs well, I'm planning to upgrade it with carbon chassis and a top deck....

A strip of carbon fiber from the center bulkheads to the front bulkheads on the each outside will make a big difference. Somewhere back on this thread I showed what I did to the nitro version... it helped there too

Psycho, I like what you've done there very good.

Just thought I'd let you guys know my spada is up on fleabay UK Item number: 320334166873
Its got a few nice bits on like centered cells and a unique rear damper system.
I would keep her but....following orders from the wife/baby.

They did not take off due to them not being available for the US market. The guys here that have them had to order them from Asian markets and have them imported. Kyosho dropped the ball on these cars as far as the US market.

man your right, i posted a video on my local forum and people thought they were pretty cool....ive never heard anything about them ...IMO this class would be way easier to start then any other Nitro Onroad class .....

wow.......They should have given this car a chance
