Default My R4 landed finally

Hey guys this weekend my R4 landed finally and i started the built.

From the parts it clearly shows that they sent the R4 in a very strict diet over the RRR.

Pro:

Weight
Diffs Rotational Mass
Plastic very rigid contains carbon (correct me if i am wrong)
Shocks amazing best shocks ever built

Cons:
Built isn't up to Kyosho standard, not everything fits like a glove like it normally does

Bearings in front diff where a real pain to install
Gears on aluminium hubs are to tight
1st and 2nd gear have to much friction with each other. Had to sand a bit the 2nd screw plastic support as it was litteraly getting stuck with the 1st gear screws.
Brake pads, but apparently the upgrade pads from the 777 ( like evolva m3 evo ) can be fit.
Servo Steering plastic no for Hitec splines

Mods i did

Throttle mod:
Replaced 2.6 screws with 3mm x 10mm and drilled the plastic parts Kyosho has. Much better.

All i need is to race it but it will be in two weeks unfortunately.


What body do you guys suggest for an R4 over a very tight track?

Thanks
