That's the closest emoticon I could find . . .
I was trying to find the one that's looking up and whistling.

You could buy the K-Factory chassis and change from the bottom, if your using humppacks.

By the way, do I get the impression that TKA did well this weekend.

Hmmm . . . 19 seconds mid week, eh - sounds tempting.
Actually, since Sam seems to have emerged from his driving doldrums, life is looking up a bit. That "difficult" day we spent with the solid axle was worth it.

Hey, bring the "3" with you. You can run the Serpent at Lilydale and the "3" at Dandenong. Your bound to find a "punter" for the MTX, here. Dandenong is a good track, though the pic doesn't do it justice.



Sam, in third - always bloody third, it seems. He is the little guy on the stand, third from right.

The K factory chassis has quality issues...

A better choice is the Shimo chassis... lets you get the batt right down low, and there is enough room to slip it out the bottom...

Although, you shouldnt need to remove it all that often, other than cleaning the car, where you should have the radio tray off anyway.

Yes, it is good - 70 metre (downhill) straight or something.
It was there that I noticed the MTX-3's were particularly good in fast change of direction situations.
Their local fast guy, OZDC, will typically put us all to shame with his STS Pro.

Yes my engine is the RS12. The engine is great, personally, it seems faster than any other .12 engine i've even driven but thats my opinion. Yes my engine is hand moded slightly, its not modded like "whoa", the sleeve, crank and conrod are just moded to a point where it gives the engine a little more punch and acceleration.
There are two three port engines made by sts, one is the RS3 which is heavily moded, and very very nice, the other is the rs12 which is less moded but still g00d.
Hope this helps=)

also, heres the STS website http://www.stsrc.com.tw

You know I've heard this before, but I have to disagree. I run it on my RR and it has been great. I'm not dissapointed with it at all. It is machined from 4mm aluminium and is done to a high standard. It is lightened and countersunk appropriately. It would be a mistake to dismiss the chassis so easily. I know K-factory has some iffy cast stuff, but this is OK. Oops, sorry for the length of this post.

Ive had 2 kfactory chassis.... both the 3mm and 4mm and on both I found the holes to be slightly out of wack.... either in the wrong position for the mid mount, or off center with the chassis....

Causing the sidebelt to be too tight, and the flywheel and clutch bell to have clearence issues.

I have had other k factory products for the v-one... and can make the claim that they have quality issues.

If yours is working fine, then all is good
