i think the kawa chassis is better. i dont have it. i have the zspeed. the kawa has a beeter cooling slot for the bottom of the case and the edges are chamfered so that it does not grab the blacktop.

Default Chassis (upgrade)

I like the kawahara. They put a lot of detail into their products. everything fits like stock. Thats what counts. Highley recomended! Hardcore racing makes a ti version if you are interested in strength, because t7075 aluminum is the same no matter no makes it.

If you have a good radio tray like 5 Star or Kawa, the stiffness issue shouldnt be a problem since they kind of work together to make the whole chassis strong.

Also keep in mind, the radio tray is criticial because if you get something which has less quality and all the holes dont line up then you will torque bend your chassis even though you have a stiff one! so keep that in mind!

Default 15/18 pinions

Where would i be able to find a 15t/18t pinions for this car, or is the lowest it goes down to is 16t/19t. Maybe there's other brands that are compatible with the mugen such as yokomo's but i wanted the highest gear ratio possible. Thanks.

PS: It's for the centax clutch.
