The K&B was good for its fast acceleration to high RPM and it used to fight against OPS in almost all major races in old days.

ok, on the springs, if I see this.

FRONT SPRING GLD 2.5X1
KYOC3755 VZ072-3517 FRONT SPRING SILVER 3X1. Optional
KYOC3756 VZ073-3516 FRONT SPRING GLD 3X1.6

What are these 2.5 X 1 and 3X1 etc. numbers referring to?

I sold my reflex and I was using reflex rear springs and kyosho front on the v1r, I need to see if I have a v1r spring that is close to the reflex rears because I have to put the reflex rears back on it before I ship. I think are reflex rears are around 9 lbs. How soft is the kyosho orange?

or....

i could just list them for you to make life easy...

What you wanna declare war on Australia now that you have finished with the Americans Whats wrong with my floral background or the sheets on my bed .... I was just too lazy at the time to put batteries into the camera and ran it direct off the PC, which meant i could only go as far as the cable would allow...

I have had to reshape the header a little to get the pipe around the extended shafts. I also now am running the pipe holder off the top deck to bring the stinger in to stop it from being ripped off as you will see why in those photos...

You will have to measure the pullstart for the motor you want to run and add this demension to the shafts to bring them out that bit further... I have tried Alloy shafts out of T6 and they both broke within 15 minutes run time... I am currently using Mild Steal, but this adds a shit load of weight to the car, putting you behind the eight ball....
