Too expensive to import and Great Planes was the sole distributor. $$$$$

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
Thx. I guess I would wait on this. Setup system is $$$$. PMB is the cheapest I can find. But, still very $$$$

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.
I picked Mazada 6. Popular. Easy to find.
I just bought two KO 2364 servos from rc-toro. I always like KO stuffs since the time of EX-1 and EX-5.

Ive found the Mazda 6 and Stratus to be very similar in handling.....the one thing i prefer about the Mazda 6 is that the front seems a little more durable than the Stratus.

I`m guessing once Kyosho get settled with their distribution in the USA, then more parts will start appearing in local hobby shops...and hopefully this will lead to lower prices for racers over there

tnx in advance
You`ll lose a bit of off-power steering compared to the one-way. However you`ll gain the advantage of brakes being applied to the front wheels.
On-power, the solid will be quite similar to a one-way.

Thanks for the feedback, I will get the kyosho bell and maybe the 3-racing ti shaft
