Mikecatts glad to hear the evo did a good job for you at the Vic champs. I think it's a fairly good car but unfortunatly the chasis still needs some rear suspension work ( I wish kyosho would address this). I've been battling with this car since August last year and enough is enough and the car is going into retirement. I hate to say it but it's just not fast enough to compete with the rest of the field up here at Brendale ( QLD). Keep up the good work that FW-05 should be a cracker to drive.

I think it will be the Mugen ( unfortunatly the sheep disease has taken over) or maybe the Evola i feel like crashing fast.

hehe, i believe that Cyrul did not design the G4, he just drove it

I believe he will be driving the Fw05R, hope he has some good results with it!

maybe some of the racers in taiwan can shed some light on this.

But to my knowledge, the G4 was strictly developed by Team Magic taiwan... like the reflex, trinity has nothing to do with the car other than selling it.....and, Cyrul was a driver for trinity, but then again, i cannot speak for him.

About the 05, I really have no idea, but according to Cyrul, he said that has not even driven the 05 yet up until this point.(from the EP thread)...not sure about its development.. I know for sure that mainly (?) the car was designed by a kyosho factory driver...(i cant remember his name at the moment)

O well, it doesnt really matter who designed the car does it? As long as it runs great, then im happy.

Never heard of that one - The V-One R is a bit wider than the MTX-3 in the front.
You just might be able to use the Evo one - I'm absolutely guessing here, but the Evo and the MTX are very close to the same width in the front. Then there's the pulley issue.

But surely an MTX-3 diff is the way to go?

Yeah, it's full of a lot of chit-chat rubbish from Dexter.
