Any help would be great.
you won't need any help,... just follow the instructions (in kyosho's handbook) and you're done, Serpent-style crank is SG-crank, is pilot-shaft crank,...

Try the new steel ring/bevel gears. I went through perhaps 20 tanks and a race there was no wear at all.

Well fast harry,

To answer your question, the Fw was 00.01 of a second quicker than me on the weekend, and as I mentioned that was my first drive, with a kit setup. From what I have witnessed around here the MTX3 is no faster than either car, but since none of them ran on the weekend I will find out next race

A guy from the club is getting an R40, so I will get to finally see one race.

These pi$$ing contests are just too much.

The FW is certainly good, but it doesn't strike me this is any ordinary OS TR.

Default Head cooling

Has any one had problems with cooling on the FW due to the air cleaner being in front on the cooling head?
