Im using it. Its heavier , which is a good thing for those who get ti screws and such to lower the weight this will help put more weight at the bottom of the chassis.

I also have the CF kawahara rear engine brace on my car. With the plastic piece If I took my car and pryed at the rear it would bend back some , now with the brace there seems to be no movement.

I have a friend who uses it, and he likes it. Most people like the Mugen 4mm because it has the grooves in it, helping with cg.. I have the Mugen one.

Team Magic is better than Hudy.
Easy to read, no slop and very very smooth.

I find the Hudy very easy to read as anyone else would though. There is no slop or anything wrong with them. The newer integy gauges are said to be better than the old ones, but I don't see anyone saying they are. The older ones forget about it...those things were so far off you might as well use a protractor and ruler. The only thing is that is hard on the Hudy is to measure castor. Unlike the older integy it doesn't have the measure piece on the side to make castor reading a bit easier. I stick a allen key in the pivot ball to see where it is on the Hudy. Aside from that TM and Hudy gauges are the best for the $$ and have great resale value.

They do carry the Kyosho one-piece engine mount and I've heard that it could be used. I would just like to keep the screw sizes the same. If its not the case, I guess I could order the new Skyline SKL-VR12PLUS and the engine mount from Skyline Racing.
they do fit but I wouldnŽt recommend them to be used, with the kyosho one piece youŽll likely end up using 3x4.8 shim in the front of the shaft y you desire to use a gap bigger than 3mm and even more specially if your shoe is wore down,

Easy to read, yes.

Better than Hudy, I don't think so.

Based on my research, your list is correct.

the arm is shapped so that it doesn't hit the new lower uprights. Lest bump steer.
