I'm running 46/17 front and back 21/51 1st, 25/46 2nd, and running the change up at lower revs which allows only 2 change ups per lap at Aldershot.
Hopefully I should have some comparison lap times after this Sunday.

A sheet of glass can be used instead of a proper board.
The Hudy guages can become scratched and hard to read in poor light, I sold mine and got some alloy ones.
You may want to look at a 'Tweak Station' as well so you know your car actually sits flat on the road under its own weight.
I don't use my ride height guages as I tend to go by look and feel.
Hi Nimo, thanx for the reply. But can u tell me what consist of the set-up equipment? looks like i'm gonna need a complete set-up equipment. Any web site for reference? Cause I'm not quite sure how the set-up equipment look like. Thanx.

You could use the shock set up tool.
Not only does it do shock lengths but it can measure shock damping resistance in pairs, so you can possibly check spring resistance as well.

Also, will the Mugen gears fit on the Kyosho centax end-bell?

Thanks,

RC-union now sell the 28T / 29T Mugen Pinion gears

I have just e-mailed Kawahara to see if they can put a parts listing on their web site and in English.
