If it was indeed Massami, then he would always use a one way for the front diff in the car regardless of track type I believe the same goes for Hara. I don't think these guys know how to drive the car with a front diff

my bad, I think it may have been Atsura. I need to check some of my magazines to see who I was actually talking to.

nice..
Yeah, I see that there are two optional pulleys... 22T and 23T. Which middle pulley is this? The brake pulley?

Is this to change to higher / lower internal ratio or as an overdrive pulley like the one that comes in the V1RR?

They put in a servo guard! Dispells one of my early worries. The prototype's servo was just hanging out there... it looked like it wasn't even supported ... imagine a crash with it... oohhhh that servo would have been toasted.

For those with the kits... how does the flexibility of the plastic parts compare to other racing cars? Is there obvious flex as in the previous HPIs or very little or none like more of today's frontrunners.

I've never been in a hurry to buy a car, so I can afford to wait and see how this car pans out ( ) .

It is HPI, of course it will have a ton of stuff on the wall! Would you expect less from hobbietat? Nope ( make this nod turn sideways).

I think that bobby is going to stick with Kyosho, but he will surely try one of these. Plus, many others will too.
