Yeah, well I guess I was thinking a completely new car (the R4) but fixing & cleaning these old ones is part of the fun

I like to wrench old cars too MikaR and make them perform even better.
On a side note,a spanish driver made his Evo2 look very much like the R4,more than a year ago.He used a Xray servo saver and tank and screwed the top deck below the bulkheads.Will try to find some photos.

After 4 years with Kyosho America, it is time to move on. Thanks to Kyosho America for all the help. For 2011 I will be moving to RC America and Xray. I will have a very good Shimo car, TONS of parts, and probably about 50 sets of Red Box tires for sale sometime after the Thanksgiving day holiday.

Whenever you decide to sell those wheels, send me a PM, I definitely need a good set of wheels, especially Redboxes

You don't want Redboxes Jamie! You want Capricorn tyres!

Well Johnny boy, only a back to back test will prove otherwise
So far going by word of mouth, although the KRF wheels are more expensive, they still have the best rubber. Once I have a set of KRFs and a set of Capricorns, Ill let em go back to back, see how they differ, which is better!
