So many new tourers coming out now!! Even HPI has gotten into the action.

I think the lower CG of the radio gear and motor is a big assistance, everybody was commenting on how flat my car handles even as good as a MTX3.

I posted a little while back that the rear end of the V1RR is very good and I still think it is. However today I did solve a handling issue (tight triple chicane with an off camber entry into turn two) by putting some more shims under my MTX3 rear hubs. So I think this design needs some looking into by Kyosho.

AMGracer how long do you think before the RR Evo is released in HK. Do you think it will before Australia. If so I know where I'll be shopping.

Kyosho wont change there rear end because it is proven design
on there cars. So why don't you run a MTX 3 then if you want all the MTX 3 parts on your car.

Hopefully they come out overseas before the QLD titles and they don't not to worry. I would rather just buy the RR evo kit having two cars the same is what I want anyway. It could take a few months to build a purpose racing chassis. I don't think they will be here in Australia until the end of the year or early next year, I'd be surprised if it's sooner.

July is the information that I have been given so far. And yes it is very likely that it will be out in Hong Kong well before Australia. I had my V1RR well before they arrived in Oz.

When you can win back to back A Mains I will listen to your car building and tuning advice Until then I like my MTX3 rear uprights, now more than I thought I did

Funny part is if Kawahara made them you guys would be dribbling all over pictures of them. If they are from another car everybody thinks I am wierd
