price is going to be equal to that of a kit's price. but it does "look" great !

Default Kawahara bevel drive gear set

Just received the Kawahara bevel drive gear set. I must say the quality is in line with the high quality of Kawahara parts. Compare to the Kyosho steel gear, the Kawahara set is better value (Kyosho 2 sets = 7600yen list, Kawahara 11000yen list). However, unlike the drawing as released by Kawahara before, the set on sale does not include engine mount and the two clutch pinions for change of drive ratio. What the set contains as follows:

45T 0.8 pitch front crown gear
46T 0.8 pitch rear crown gear
17T 0.8 pitch drive gear X2
Metal dogbone cup X2
Drive gear support bearings with spacers X2

One thing that is very interesting is that instead of using two small bearings to support the drive shaft, Kawahara uses only one flanged bearing with a big spacer to go into the inner part of the gearbox, and this completely does away the use of the two small bearings to support the drive shaft. I wonder if this configuration is enough to support the torque from the mid dogbones.....Anyway as I install the set I will find out, but all in all quality of the parts are top notch. I can't wait to go to the track and try, but today still is raining like cats and dogs....

How many teeth are on the bevel gear that drives the ring gear on the diff? Mines in the car so cant count it

Can you get different sizes?

I just hope that it'll be at least lighter than the original chassis (so dang heavy)

It's as smooth if not smoother as the NTC3 if you install the steel ring gears.

Default steel gears

Could someone tell me where to get the steel ring gear sets? I just got this kit and my local shop doesn't carry them.

That's a tough one. They were release merely a month or two ago and not yet in wide distribution outside of Asia. I got mine directly from Japan (Ishii Mokei, www.ishiimokei.com). FYI the part number is VSW018 for the 39T and VSW019 for the 40T.
