Nice water cooling setup. What car did you get the front and rear suspension off of?

I'll be taking it down to the drag strip as soon as the weather dries up and the track is clean.

The front end is from a Kyosho RRR and the rear gearbox is from a Kyosho GTR with evolva swing arms etc..

Can you explain the gyro connection? I know what the gyro does but how is it setup in the car. That's a killer setup

Basically it adjusts the steering so the car stays in a straight line without any input from the driver.

Try applying full brakes to a car that has a one way in the front and it will always spin out. Now add a gyro and do the same thing and the car will come to a stop in a dead straight line.

They work like magic
