Just FYI, IFMAR approved the Kawahara bodies for this year's pre-worlds: (http://www.ifmar.org/pdf/IFMAR200mmbodylist1jan05.pdf)

I have Futaba S9451 digital servo. Lately the humming noise is really loud. Anyone can hear it even from 4 meter away The servo is still moving and the torque is there. Is this good or bad sign ?

Servo's usually only hum when they are searching for neutral position.
If the steering is tight it may not actually be returning to full neutral. Try gently moving the servo horn with your fingers to see if the noise goes away or reduces. If that doesn't solve the problem, it is more than likely internal.
If you are good with electronics, pull the servo apart and clean and relubricate the gearbox, and also check the servo motor that nothing is hindering it's operation.
Apart from that, use it til it dies, then fix it or get a new one.

EFRA is the ruling body for Europe just like ROAR is for North America. I have no idea about South America, the Middle East and Africa, maybe someone can answer that for me.

Thanks for the info. I wonder if ROAR will allow Kawahara in the future. I find the Lexus IS250 great for short tracks and the Kawahara Accord great for medium to long tracks. Is it possible for a member of ROAR to submit a body for consideration?


Be extremely helpful if the sanctioning bodies could have more compatibility with each other on rules. I just finished my first ever international event (Asian Mugen Cup) and all I can say is RC sure seems to be pretty much the same everywhere. Same tools, cars, engines, starters, rechargers, driving techniques, etc. Even the asshole drivers drive the same.

Okay fellas, I just broke down and bought a MTX-4 to run along with my MTX-3. Besides getting the 4mm rear shock tower and one-piece motor mount, what else should I look to possibly upgrade on the car down the road?
