Those will work fine, but I would recommend 1100 mAh nimh. I just picked up two packs on ebay for around $32. They'll last alot longer and should be the same size as the 600 mAh you have listed.

Even the standard prices are very good!! Kyosho/Kawahara/Mugen parts are very cheap.

Is the VoneR rubber kit and foam kit the same other than the tires? Suspension the same?

Where can parts be purchased online fairly cheap in USA? I know of Tower, which has the VoneR GP for $201.11 right now. Any other online sources?

Think the car will be around a little while? I'm two years late on this purchase. I don't want to buy something that is irrelevant in two months.

the grp rubber version has a gear diff instead of a one way in the kit... plus it comes with slicks instead of foams.

fit and finish is great on the kyosho, but yeah, if you are wanting the latest and greatest you may be a little late. if you are a beginner who is learning it is more than enough. (read as ; "maybe to good")

if you get a pro car make sure you can get help seting it up initially.

why do you want to run slicksz? why not foams? there's more value in the one way grp kit vrs. on a tight track with a even field of racers the mugen, kyosho, serpent, trinity are all equaly as quick. you will only begin noticing the differences on large high speed tracks.... and when all 10/10th's of the ability of the car is being used by a PRO driver

Unhappy Heres a question...

I was wondering if anyone knew if the floating rear pod on the RR is or is not ROAR legal. I am getting conflicting stories and want to get this straight before I decide to compete at regionals or nationals.

I'm positive it's fine B.H., but you might as well trim off the extra material, because it's not doing us much good anyway with the sedan bodies. I shaved mine off close to the body mount posts. When I run the Lola body, I'll put another floating mount on instead.
