The difference between the two cars will be posted at my V1RRR Web site in a week or so, but in the mean time, see the attached PDF file. It's a draft version, so if anyone want's to check it, please do!

That's nice work. I can't wait until you get the site going.

Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

Ouch! What car does your local hobby stores support? Try checking the dealership listing at Kyosho America

http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/locatedealer/Map.asp

If that doesn't work, these guys are reliable, but I don't know how much the shipping will be to Jersey...

I have set of plyers that I have put shrink tube around the jaws, but looks a little cheesie.

Thanks! Once I've got the site up, I'll PM you the preview link so that you can help me identify any glaring errors or ommisions. After that, you're free to submit content for the site like everyone else.

BTW: I'm curious as to why you want the Kawahara Anti Roll Bar. Plus, once you test it, if you want, we can add it to the review section at the Web site. Check with RC Champ for availability: [email protected]. If it's still available, I'm pretty sure they can get it for you. Just give them the part number and the description.

Do they offer free shipping on all their kits? I forgot to call them today and they offer free shipping with the MRX4R, but no other kits.

I will be glad to help with the site.

I'm not a big fan of the way the stock sway bar is mounted. I find that in order to keep the rear suspension free you cannot tighten the (2) screws that hold the sway bar down and with those slightly loose it allows the bar to slide (side to side) a little. It's probably not a big deal but I would like to give the Kawahara a try. Besides, Chris Tosolini uses one and they look really cool.
