What did you do with the stock slicks?
Sorex are pretty cheap (around $20a pair) and also good for competition.

I used to pay like 7$ for thrash tyres, but after a couple of race meets u will ban your car from the road, so i say dont buy them.


Trust me, the road is wayyyyyyy tooooo dangerous for these things.

Well im running 32's on the front, 27's on the rear.
They have gone thru one race meet and still have that original line through the middle to mark the join and there newness.


Plus thats what i'd advise to run if u r racing on like basketball courts.

and just run with the big caster block and the ONE little one on the front, and one little one on the back.

It makes front end grip more consistent thru corners.

yeh u can get touch starter for the gs15r

not to sure how u would fit it in there

to me its a waste of money, stick with the recoil

u cant actaully get a S with teh touch starter i think... its just coz kyosho have used the gs-15r in a couple of trucks and in one of them they use a touch starter.... but there isnt that much space for one on the S

Yeah recoil i prefer.

I think the special starter thing, when it dies u have to fix it before u can start again, cause there is no pull starter, unless u buy a starter box that is

Dawn Trading (The rc equivalent of Satan) are the Australian importers of kyosho. Dont bother contacting them cos they are fu(kwits and wont bother replying. Stuart at Southern Cross Hobbies imports Kyosho stuff direct from Japan and is happy to handle special orders. Others do the same but short of importing yourself he is the cheapest and most reliable ive founnd!
