Im a serpent fans, but this car is truly something... and proven already.
Guys.. please pay attention on the lower front arm, I believe it was the longest in the class.
Im not sure, but it should be less forgiving to drive and makes the perfect setup is very wide so it is easy to achieve.
I guess Kyosho invested more time in this part instead of (other cars) roll center, posibillity to kick up or kick down even kick others butts.

Can't wait for new MRX. Coz the snake is already proove his domination in Euro, Kyosho in World Cup....

Hmmm...what do you think? This car or the 950R?

One thing about Kyosho is parts are such a pain to get in the US.

By the way, you mean that the longer arms will be more forgiving instead of less, no?

You can get the car for a lot less than 70,000 yen--48,800 yen from these guys:

Is this place reputable? Has anyone ordered from them before? I'm ready to lay down some cash on that place. Best deals I have ever seen, period.

I think they are a good deal if you can get someone to buy from them in Japan than ship to you. Otherwise they charge 12% for credit card and lots of $$$ for shipping overseas.

Not the snake, Im talking about this Evolva arm.

As for longer lower arm, it could reduce some amount of weight transfer when it rolls, sure it depends on other setup too.
Comparing to the shorter arm? yes, I believe it will be easier to find a good setup.

12%? I thought it was pretty standard that in Japan, 5% surcharge is applicable for credit cards... I might be wrong though.

That place accepts money order

and the Shipping fee by EMS is just the standard prices from Japan.

But dont forget there is a 5% tax!

Some of the ads on the website have not been updated, because some products are on sale (the EVO kit for example), and that the sale supposedly ended already at the end of novemember. better give them a mail to be sure.

5% is the tax

10~12% is usually the amount they charge you for using credit card
