no no conversion rate here for yen is like 1000yen = 65 HK$ which is considered as good rate !! i.e. it is about 33HK$

US$12 is overkilled !!!!

10 minutes to cut 1 1/2 tires? I think I've seen HAG do it in like 2 minutes. Man you must work for the government.
Yeah I make two passes for each cut and shut of the grinder after each to measure. Then I smooth the tire surface with a flat sandpaper block. Lastly I put the rounds back onto the tire edges. Yes I am anal.

Oh! . . . there you are rjl.

Agreed, Active's have a much stiffer rim. It's likely the rim stiffness also contributes to the stability these wheels exhibit.
The other side of the coin is that it is possible to break them. We've broken a couple, but a bit of CA glue sees them back in service, just fine.
It's all a compromise. Overall, I'm happier to glue the few breaks than try and fix a wonky one - that seldom works for me.

That's what I told HAG but he wasn't going to buy it anyway. Something about he NEVER hits anything.

The name is "Active"

I get 'em at New Wave Hobbies here in Melbourne, Oz.
They are about the same price as the Zac's.

Ok thanks but there aren't any Active foams here and shipping to the states would be too expensive.

I think it means that rcmodel.com.hk declare copyright on a photo of a Kyosho logo that the don't have a copyright to.

That's what you meant, isn't it?

Yep and AMG is violating the copyright of someone that has no copyright to Kyosho.

You need to update the points and race results. You might be last by now.
