Theres more images now!
Its actually for sale, just havent put it on ebay yet.

The bearings are brand new, as are the belts. Theyve never actually been run. The car was used to run in an engine, so hasnt actually done any racing.

The bearings were Boca ceramics, and these were replaced afterwards with the unused kit bearings.

sorry about the size of the photos.

Im not sure about the price.

I do know that you see some crap ones on ebay going for over $200.

As long as it goes to a good home.

I love the reflex, even more than any of the new breeds. (RRR, G4, R40 etc).

I build my cars to perfection, so everything is free - non binding, and working how it should.

Im in the UK tho so postage might be an issue.

yep the evo front suspension is different, longer arms, narrow front bulkhead, different diff case,the gears are the same, but one of the out drives is longer that the old style rr were, but the belts are the same

They are K factory Low friction belts for the G4. Since the transmission is the same they fit the reflex.

rcrossco, don't bother with the G4 belts. They are low friction but they lasted me about 1 weekend of racing. The best belts for the Reflex are the Kyosho RR/RR Evo SP Belts. They make SP versions for all three belts. I've been using the same belts for about 2 yrs now.

Another trick to get you reflex up to speed is to use the Kyosho RR plastic pulley sets. They aren't as pretty as the aluminum ones, but they last forever, lighter and have less rotating mass for blasting out of the corners.

Also try the V-One RRR front and rear hubs. Most dramatic change you can make without buying an Evo conversion kit. The hubs will give you much better cornering.

Oh and stay away from the Kfactory swing shafts. They're crap.

THose belts have never seen the track.
I dont race reflexes anymore, infact I dont really race anymore.
Health issues.
I very much want to move to the US and live near a race track in a warm californian climate, working for a model shop.
I fed up of life in the UK!, and want to do something less stressful.
Kinda like the guy off the film American Beauty!
SO if any of u guys know of any model shops that need a hand let me know!!
