I would try 600wt shock oil all the way around. vince told me about that set-up and the car is on rails tons of on and off power steering i can post the rest of the set up if you like. I love the kyosho car so far it is so easy to drive nothing against the mtx4r but the evo 2 wc fells much better.

Check your PM
Here are some tips that Vince pass me the other day, 20k DIFF OIL, 0.5 toe out @ front, 4.5 camber @ rear tires (depends on how they wear out) all the rest seens to be the same as the Setup I run.

PM sent
ok 0 degress in the front sway bar then.
what gear ratio are you using? im geting beat at the end of the straight the other guys are passing right by right before you get to the sweaper. i don't know if its becouse the engine is rich. i am running it a little rich couse it doesn't have that much fuel through it.

I have that same motor and I was also at 301 sunday. First, thats the wrong pipe for that motor. I had that same pipe and it bogged my motor down when I was at ft myers, fl. Dont run it! For that motor You need either the RB-2604 pipe or, the nova 2630. Murnan mod's will have one or the other. Go with either 20k, 30k in the back. I had 30k, most like 20k. For gearing you need to go with a 17/23 or maybe depending on motor 17/22. You have the right motor, it's that pipe that hurting your top-end power on the back straight.

good luck alberto he hit it right on the head you will see a big difference in your motors power performance with the rb 2604, or the nova 2630. The 2630 will give you more topend but it will also burn more fuel. the 2604 will give you more bottom-end, and midrange and it is better on fuel. With both pipes run the short manifold, you engine has plenty of power but for that track i would go 17-22 59-56 that will give you a good balance of bottom and top-end. If you dont have those gears i would be more than happy to give them t you the next time i see you and i will give you my set-up sheet. I will post the set-up i use when i get home vince is the man the car is dailed in now
