I wanted to run a softer diff oil and was wondering if the Ofna 10k diff lube would be the same as running the Kyosho 10k, as I don't have access to the Kyosho stuff.

It would be similar.
I actually run the Mugen Diff oils, as it's the only one I have access to.

I had a fun day at the track testing new setups and found enough traction to be able to run 40 shore tires at a track where most guys are running 37 or even 35 shore. I used the kyosho carbon front stay and stood the shocks all the way up and used the A roll center bushing in the highest up position and it still handled very well even with the 40 shore. I am amazed at how much grip this car has, and changeing the roll centers is a dream, so easy!

It was a practice day so some fun things were done. The track owner had just bought a remote mini ccd camera and he asked me if i would mind if he taped it to the top of my car. the handling went to crap from the extra weight, and the first lap was a little nervous due to the extra 400 clams strapped to the roof of the car....but i calmed down and had a fast run with other cars on the track. The video was very cool but suffered some interference/vibration on the straight stretch. Very neat to see the image from the cars perspective! Man those things are fast!. just thought id share

Yes! Allen key-type screws are definetly favored over phillips style. I got my set at www.rcscrewz.com, only $20 for a stainless steel set, and they make screws for virtually all cars/truck kits out there!

Sorry, but my question is a bit off topic here. But I noticed that you ordered from R/C Model.hk, do they have an english website?? Do you have the link if so.

Thanks,
Roy

Hey what did you guys do to keep the front and rear lower suspension arms from binding? I'm in the process of building my car, taking my sweet time and my fronts bind excessively. I think my right bulkhead is deformed, but I wanted to see if there are any remedys to get them to work without buying replacements. I already tried drilling the arms out but to no avail.

Does any aftermarket company sell anything that could help in removing the bind?

All the titanium hex screw I used in the chassis stripped their heads, I now use the Tamiya titanium Philips head screws, they cost more but appear stronger than other makes.
