Rob- How's it going? Breaking in the Evo for an oval race the car is AWESOME.. Car's on rails and wants to just eatem up. I feel guilty just running the car oval. I put a Bud's Racing Product wing in the back and that helps with the down force. Thanks for the info on that "Custom Works". Anyway wanted to say hi and see how's your car is doing. Here's a Evo on ebay maybe you can get a deal on http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...92889639&rd=1.

see ya

See the rear tyres on the MTX-3! The large rear link angle gives it a lot of camber during roll and therfore more rear grip under power.

I have managed to get the rear tyres on the FW05 to wear like this and this is when its at its best.

Man I just went to Team Magic www G4 forums and they are claiming that the "RRR" bascally copied the G4. Calling it a "G4RRR ". Now I have the G4 and it has some parts that are interchangable with the V one R series. I mean Team Magic and Trinity from what I heard worked together to make the G4. Everybody knows that the Reflex was a V one R clone. I did however notice that the "RRR" uses a the lay throttle servo that looks just like the G4's . I also saw the similar brake arm and front bumper. No biggy. Also the Mugen style rear hubs that the G4 doesn't have. But I mean Kyosho could have used some of TM's throttle design and Mugen's rear end and a bigger gas tank. Hey whatever makes a car better, right??

IMO, I don't see how it looks like a G4 in any way. If one claim that the throttle design is from the G4, then they have not seen the Kai option for the 710 and the Charge Option for Mtx-3 (both consist of lay down throttle servo). Brake arm? Oh no, the RRR's got tires like the G4...
Nitropimp, nothing against you of course, u a cool guy

If anything, the G4 copied the initial Kyosho V one R series in terms of suspension. Kyosho does not tend to copy others very much, it is the Taiwanese companies that tend to do more of that (no offense intended for anyone, I am from TW myself. I am merely saying the truth). Not that this is bad, but it is just a trend that I have observed.
