or long sweepers.

On our track we also have the chance to accelerate heavily off of a tight corner that leads into a smaller sweeper. It's no where near enough room to get up to full speed, but's enough that you can punch the throttle and get there a lot quicker.

It improves high speed stability while maintaining slow speed steering.

I wonder what the weight difference is to stock too. I would imagine that with all those extra parts the additional weight could be horrendous.

I know someone at our track that has it, maybe he could weigh it if he has a food scale around. :-)

just saw on the Kawahara site new stuff for the MTX2.
seems like derlin arms and suspension set. the hex adaptors seems longer too. made for a wider rear i guess.

Just want 3 hop-ups for the Pro :

1. Kawahara Graphite Upper Deck
2. Solid Rear Diff
