So the 3 Racing Products are already well-known in the US then? In what way?

I wouldn't say well, known. Just the hardcore Kyosho racers in my area know. The Yokomo guys are good at keeping up with competitors hop ups. I'm starting up my own company to manufacture aftermarket parts. I race competitively and I'm tired of overpriced hop ups.

So is that who's making the stuff Integy is selling too? It seems pretty good quality, (I've got a rear aluminum shock tower for the RR).

kevink2:

It's my understanding that Integy makes their own stuff, but they're copies of existing designs. I guess copyright laws don't apply if what they're copying isn't imported officially?

The Integy stuff is good quality though. I have several pieces and I am very happy with them. Especially the RR rear upper arm set.

Hi RC,

So to you best knowledge, there isn't any authorized 3 Racing products distributor in the US? I think both 3 Racing and Integy make pretty good quality products.

I've never seen 3 Racing stuff advertised anywhere here in the U.S., but have heard about it through some of the guys on this thread.


TO EVERYONE: Congrats to all who have been posting here, it looks like this is probably the most active and viewed thread at R/CTech. That either means that the V-One R is one of the most popular cars around by the show of public interest in this car, or more of us Kyosho guys are just computer geeks who have no lives(world-wide)!

Whoop ass? Did I say whoop ass? I said slap AMGRacer upside the head to wake him up. Get your anatomy correct before you call me out. One end stuff goes in. The other end stuff comes out.

Anytime, any day Mikey. You fly to the US or I fly to where the toilet spins backwards?

Don't take my word. Ask HeyAlignmentGuy if I'm the type willing to fly.

By the way, was I talking to you? Is your name AMGRacer?

ROOOFLLMAOOOOOOOOOOO!!

What are you a comedian in a former life?

3 racing universals are undoubtedly a waste of money. The shaft will bend under very minor impact. Now I don't know if they make the integy ones that are the totally different design - but they're very good.

I just got the Integy universals (standard length) a coupe days ago. I havent used them yet, but they seem to be built like a rock. Seemingly very good quality.
