So Kyosho America told me that they will not import the R4 SP into the states. I try to support Kyosho because I like their product but they are making difficult to do so.

5 port isn't illegal┐?....
I think that Nova PTS or Team Orion Alpha ABI is the best of the best...Orion fits perfectly in R4....a lot of power...excelent quality materials... easy to perform to the top!!....

Tomas, 5p engines are not legal on ROAR/IFMAR sanctioned events, for club racing or open events they are fine ...

Last week Champion in lower final ( C main ) and i'm the only Kyosho R4 there Didn't manage to bump up due to driving mistake. The car is alot flatter and stable even it is too light. With 2 low profile servo the car was 1708g and i'm added 25g weight to pass the weight control.

Further i need more sensitive steering to catchup those A main lap time. They are crazy fast..

Hey guys I have a question.
The Ackerman is connected to the servo saver.
I notice that the upper deck has two position noched in it.
My question is. By moving the servo saver front or Back.
What type of effect does this cause to the steering
Of the car?

Moving the Ackerman back , that is less Ackerman . With more or less Ackerman that affects how much more the inside wheel turns in relation to the outside wheel. So less Ackerman will make the inside and outside tire turn more evenly.

Why? Does the rear of the car like to come around and meet the front in on power situations on corner exit?
