The 55 spur gear will give greater top speed than the 56.

It doesn't get any better than that. Use bigger tires.

It's a shame to see Silverstone go. I heard last week about it. I'm glad I got to drive there before it got shut down.

Some 3Racing stuff is ok.

Don't go for any wearing type stuff (like clutch bells and alike). Bulkhead caps, brake arm, radio tray mount and things like that are ok.

The old saying rings true though, you get what you pay for. So there is a reason the 3R stuff is a little cheaper in general.

Hey Guys,

finally got to run the car today at the Silverbowl (Las Veags Home Track) and I gotta say, i was very impressed with the car. (I have ran a MTX3 for the past couple of years)......I went with Ron Atomics' set up and it was very good....The car is very stable, and handles turns much better than the Mugen (IMO). I was skeptical about how it compares, and I have to admit I really don't have to worry ("as much" anyways) about the possiblities of "traction rolling", as I did with my previous car. I still will have more testing with the car (next weekend), but I am going to love the car I KNOW IT!!!

Question #1: Anybody know where I can find a Kawahara "Blade" Rear Sway Bar for the car??? (in stock??)

Question #2: Do you have to buy (in Jaco's) 0mm offset wheels for the rear, and 2mm offset for the fronts???? I noticed on the "kit" tires there is an offset for the fronts. (Or just purchase "Power Tires" and not worry about it.... & are the Japanese Shops the only ones who carry the Power Tires) The reason I ask, is today I tried, Black Star (same as "Twister"), Elligi's (Orange Box) both @ 0mm offset (all around) and they both "rubbed" against the lower shock ball cup.....

Question #3: Anybody change the lower ball cups on the shocks to "captured"???? If so, what are the part numbes, and did it change "geometry of the shock travel/length????
