so u can use the Mugen Centax in the V1R/RR too? Is there any benefit to this? You mentioned that the Kawahara centax is a bit lighter than the Kyosho one. How does the Mugen one compare to the Kyosho one?

[email protected] is his email.
Thanks for the E-Mail addy

I am looking to get another Kawa Centax for that RB so I don't have to change stuff around, And I remember you sold me the one I have for a Screamin price

I saw one at HOBBY TOWN near my house for $110 and Speed tech has it for $89 but he has not updated his sight for Kawa parts, I order a few things, not much. He had to send me an E Mail telling me he did not have items in stock

I heard the Vectra shell is pretty good as well. What about the new Stratus? Looks kind of fuggly, looks wise I prefer the old Stratus.
The new Status works well, never tried the Accord, but am gonna try the RSX and Crowd Pleaser verry soon.
The opel should be good, I also like the Alfa 156

I saw on the Kyosho Japanese site that they now have both belt shafts in titanium (nice because the stockers are HEAVY) as well as pivot balls (also a heavy stock item).

Another new goody on the Japanese Kyosho site are front and rear upper arms with ball bearings on the inboard pivots.

On a side note, can anyone with the Kawa centax post what they have found to be good settings for number of threads showing on the clutch nut and freeplay of the bellhousing?

Are all centax easy to set-up? How is the maintenance done? I mean what are the parts that required frequent checks to ensure optimum functionality and efficiency?

The kawa centax has 4-shoe whereas Kyosho has only 3 shoes?
Cheers...

No, I don't read Japanese, I cheat...

http://babel.altavista.com/

Go to this web site and enter the site you want translated, It's pretty cool. It's a little slow to bring up the translated page and the translation comes out rough but you can usually make out what the info is.

As for availability in the states I don't know, although a couple posts up I saw someone who is in Japan?

Hey, I was just taking a look at that neat little transponder mount that Kyosho specs for the V-One RR kit. Does Kyosho sell that transponder mount seperately? If so, can someone hit me with the part number.

Thanks.

I have one of each at the moment. I have found the Accord shell quite good. The handling characteristics are similar to the Stratus, but the accord is bloody tough. It produces a little bit more steering!

The kit actually comes with a mount. It's plastic triangle and it mounts off the throttle servo
