Take your time with those front arms, NiMo - they're a bit tight out of the kit. It took me a couple of hours to get them to drop just nicely, but I think the work was worthwhile.
I hope Kyosho read my review *cough* and improved the screws.

I've been running and building Kyosho kits since 1997 so I'm a wee bit wiser on how to treat the screws (a little bit of grease in the hole first works wonders)

It has been OK so far...
Only problem, you have to place the stoppers behind the front wishbones...
So you have to sit the car on the box from the front towards the back side...

Use a gel cell instead of 2 stick packs and buy the Power Panel to hook up a glow igniter. It lasts a log while with the gel cell and you don't have to worry about an uncharged glow igniter.

So if I give you the wrong part number maybe I will lap you instead?

It's VZ237 side belt 387.

Just help me tune my engine.

I didnt bother using the stoppers on the starter box.
What i did was got the car aligned properly so the flywheel was over the starter wheel, then I marked the position of pinion gears onto the starter box and engraved this into top of the starter using a dremel........
Now to start the car its simply a case of putting the pinion gear over the marking and bumping the car to start it
As mentioned previously.....go with a 12v 7ah gel cell in this starter box......it gives a lot more life than twin stick packs.
Cheers
