I have been eyeing that mugen conversion but held off when i had heard kyosho was testing new rear hubs. Any word on this or was it just a rumour?
The rear hubs are from the RRR. They will be here in a month or 2. For the correct back action you need a shorter camber link. If you get the 3racing rear shock mount it has an extra camber link hole closer to the hubs. (3 instead of 2 holes)

It was working for me but I broke the carbon stay so changed back to the kit one

My car is demolished now including my Rex ReR 12. I've been too despondent to actually inspect and total up the cost of damage but just from looking at it, it's already +$500.

What really gets me over the top is that this idiot tried to say it wasn't his fault. This stuff is happening more and more often at the track.
There must be a system that can prevent this! I use an non standard channel when at practice just because of this.

How about having an emergency channel that acts on a seperate frequency that will overide all inputs and switch off the receiver allowing the failsafe to kick in.

Come on Futaba!!

Damn that sucks! It seems that everytime i go to the track im bitten by someone who does this sort of thing. I really feel for you! Why does it seem to happen when your car is running well too? There have been days when I have been fighting a settup (on my old rs43) and i have considered driving it into the wall myself. Maybe it would be cheaper to buy a new kit? just a thought. Good luck.....

Check your fly wheel assembly. Something must be wrong. Also, what did you use to tie the spring nut? It's tight and you might need to get a tool for it.
