Questions:

1) I run mostly on short tracks so what pinion/spur combinations do I need to get to have the best acceleration?
2) What if any breakage parts to order (not prone to wreck much but just want to be prepared)
3) What parts do I need to order to end up with a front diff. I understand that some of the parts I need are already in the kit.
4) Any aftermarket parts that help the car (not looking for bling).
5) Any build tips.

I should have it by end of week. I will be strapping on my new 12TZ and OS pipe

thanks.
1. Smaller pinion with a larger spur = more acceleration....the stock ones will work fine on short tracks, you can get a little more acceleration by running smaller diameter tyres.
2. The car is very durable but spares i carry are-
* Front and rear arms/hubs
* Shock towers front/rear
* Thrust bearing and both front & rear clutch bearings
* Hinge pins
* Belts
* Fuel tank
* Spur gears
* Ball ends/cups
Upgrades I`d recommend-
Rear shock tower
If theres pebbles at your track....get the aluminium rear diff case- I`ve had the stock one strip teeth due to stones
Aluminium pulleys....for same reason as above.
If youre after more performance consider-
Lightweight clutch bell
Titanium 2 speed & mid shafts
3. Diff info is on page 35 top left corner of the manual as to which parts to order for diff/spool
4.As above
5. Build tips-
Dont over tighten the fuel tank mounts
Brake calipers mount is wrong in manual....you`ll see though easily enough where the right holes are
When steering servo is centred, the horn mounts just to the left of top....say 1130 hours on a clock
Recommended clutch setting is too heavy....loosen it off
Two speed shifts best (depending on track) around 4 & 1/2 turns out to 4 & 3/4 turns out....not the 3 as recommended
Dont be surprised at the mid belt rubbing under the exhaust manifold....normal
Hope this helps
Cheers

Thx.
For accuracy you cant beat a good setup station, but you can get good results using a simple camber gauge and flat setup board/glass/etc.
This can be used for setting the camber angles......then stand the car on its rear and again use the camber gauge to set the rear toe-in as the car is vertical.......then with the car sitting normal again you can set the front toe out using the camber gauge and a straight edge ruler (not super accurate but will suffice till you get a setup station)
Cheers

The US distribution was apparently handled by Great Planes and has now been taken over by Kyosho USA. I guess theyre still getting themselves sorted out??

Does Kyosho make the Ti parts? I think 3racing makes them but not sure of their quality.

Oops, forgot, Kyosho make a lightweight clutch bell. I`ve used the 3-Racing l/w bell and it seems fine durability-wise. The 3-Racing bell is quite an open design and may tend to attract more dust/dirt into the clutch bearings than the closed Kyosho type, so may need more frequent cleaning/lubrication.

Thanks AndyT. I will take your advice on the parts and clutch settings.


Which is the best body to run? Mazda 6? Again, I mostly run on small tracks.
I have a stratus already painted without holes (actually, I have two). How do they work?


Last question. what is the best steering and throttle servo to use? I was using a 9550 in my G4 just because it fit better.

my advice, the mazda 6 is the best body for this car. the stratus works good too. stay away from the caddy, it is way to agressive for this car and makes it very unstable. it is good for the 710 on some tracks because it adds to the steering whick you do not have with the rrr.
