Many thanks for the replies..

I am always fun of the kyosho and when i saw the r4 thread i was dissapointed with some of the reviews..

also i see the capricorn has many option parts compared to others..

Does it have any problems?

How is the parts durability compared to kyosho and xray?

Seriously i am stressing too much because i want to make a good choice this time..

the last car i had was a serpent 720 and i was very dissapointed.. maybe i was making something very wrong however that car never suited my driving style..

then i bought a very cheap rrr from ebay it was not even the evo and it was wayyy better than the almost fully hop uped serpent 720..

so i understood that the next one will be a kyosho for sure.. ..

but now i see things have changed..

there is a new mugen, xray nt1 is amazing, the r4 is new and with reliability problems and most of all the capricorn seems the way to go..but i am afraid for two things... one is the parts and two if it is for really better than the traditional manufacturers..

I don't think the KM is a force to be reckoned with, at least not the car you can buy as a customer.

That would be for both; usually pairs of diff outdrives for 1/10 scale nitro cars weigh more that 10 grams, and sometimes nearly 15 grams. I can assure you that Capricorn parts are not heavier than similar parts for other brands.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

No offense meant to other brands, but no-one would probably want anything but a Capricorn. LOL.

Bring it the 2012 Worlds on!

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Default In need of more off power steering in chicanes

Hey guys 2nd championship race came 2nd very happy with the result. But I am in need of more off power steering coming into a very tight U turn chicanes. Shocks front are in the lowest hole, rear shocks in the highest hole. Tried raising a bit the rear roll center but didn't see much difference. What do you suggest? I thought of trying softer front shocks.
