The engine in that car was an OS FS26S-C Ver II in my Kyosho RRR WC w/4 cycle fitting kit from Kyosho.

Definitely not the fastest engine, but alot of fun none the less! Gets like 9 min on a tank of fuel!

It would be nice to have a class that we could race these cars like in Japan.

I have been slowly working on a 4 stroke engine design of my own that will hopefully be able to compete with the .12 race engines toe to toe. But that project is along ways from being completed. Still in the design phase, but I think it can be done! We'll have to wait and see.

JACO Nitro shoes work real well for me and at our track and the red box and the GQ tire are awesome also . Great price on the Jaco @ speedworldraceway.com

Aussies1129 it is hard to find the price any cheeper on the GQ because of the discount that GQ offers, stilla good price. Joseph is a really nice guy from GQ.

P.S. If my new bodies I get from JGO have orange in them I will have to start using GQ'S. lol

This weekend was my first race with Twister Tires. I am one of the new team drivers, so let me say that up front. These tires are very good. They are as good as any tire I have used. If you want a good product at a good price give twister tires a try. www.twistertiresusa.com

I only run GQ foam. There really is not a better performing foam or a stronger wheel.
