Looks like great craftsmanship. Now add my fuel tank conversion and run for days on a tankfull.....

Pipe is mounted better now.. hopefully it does not blow off like last time. There's a pretty tight teflon "coupler" between the pipe and header.



No tank mod yet

I bought all spare parts out of Hong Kong... several dealers. They have Kyosho tires too. I have a bunch of twister tires for sale in the for sale thread ... but the shipping to Germany would be killer (don't know for sure... just thinking).

Tested today.. nice sound from the pipe. And it seems to hold up well now! Spool in front also helps braking instead of the stock oneway.

Check 09L front spool from Kyosho. Not sure where I ordered from, somewhere from the net..

Default spool

Hello
Is the spool from the spada touringcar the 09l
This one has a spool
The kyosho number is sd 105 and i think you have to use the number sd 107
Egrracing sells at the moment very cheap tires
Front 3,5$
rear 4,0$

Yes, it's the same - meaning: fits both models 09 and 09L

Default Spada Steering Issue

Hi All,
I have just completed assembly on a new Spada, and I have a couple of final tweaks that are needed before I can run it. I'll try to post them one at a time

The first is the steering...the tie-rod thing rubs up against the belt every time I turn the wheel. This definitely isn't going to work like this. I suppose I can try to connect them to the lower set of holes on the servo horn, but I think that will reduce my turning radius fairly substantially.

I've posted a video example, but can't insert the URL directly into this thread...you can see it if you go to YouTube and append watch?v=ghD5tAJR3ZY to the end of the address.

Also, anyone know where I might be able to find the starter-box fitting mount?
KYOSHO (#36209-04) I can't seem to dig one up anywhere, and I think ti would be helpful in making sure my fairly large starter box lines up correctly with the smaller flywheel.

Thanks!

Default Starter Box

I know the starter box situation has been discussed to death, but I have the Duratrax Kwik-Pit Universal Starter Box. The starting wheel is definitely wider than the recommended box, the Kyosho Multi Starter Box Pro...but I think it'd work if I could just get it to make contact with the fly wheel, which seems to be recessed a bit too far into the chassis. I can't find one of those "templates" designed for the Spada anywhere, so I was wondering if anyone had some tips? I don't think I am going to be able to get it started this way, and I'd really hate to go spend $80 on another starter box just for this vehicle. Anyone using the Duratrax model successfully?

Thanks.

If you can't get the duratrax to work, you can look into the Ofna JLR sedan box #10260. It's a small box with a small and narrow wheel that works perfectly. About $50 at nitrohouse.com

Hi,
I'm willing to sell my 4-stroke Spada. Relatively new FS-26S-C with custom head (made in the U.S) , carbon chassis, front spool, extra parts, onboard fuel pump (new), all original parts included including the Sirio motor, very little run with the larger blue onroad head. Kyosho servo's, no radio. Very exciting drag vehicle, also great for running on track. Pics in this topic.
PM if interested. Cheers
Mika

Thanks - I'll give that Ofna box a look.
