I've been told that the associated diff lube is too thin, several guys told me to go with the thickest mugen grease but they were not able to give me the # number.

Do you needs some kind of spacer to raised the rear shock tower? Thanks, Bruce
You will need a very expensive Kawahara body mount set (Two pieces: one carbon fiber, one aluminum). It is part #KAWZ1741 and it goes around $50. I modified the original body mount with the dremel and am using it. It weakens it though.

Maybe somebody else has done something diferent.

With the GREENS in front you'll have to go softer on the front springs or you'll be pushing pretty bad. Now, if traction is real bad, it is wise to go GREENS on front - so keep them in inventory.

If the track is blown off and there is decent traction (for concrete), then go with REDS on all four and you'll have better steering response. REDS are the softest.

Avitar - That is number 26 on my todo list. Plus I still have an R40 so I am not totally out of date.

Hi AFM - right, they are not ROAR legal but I think it is becuase of the definition of "capped" and not really the size. I beleive ROAR dictates that the insert cannot be attached to the rim ( i.e. glued as in capped tires).

I'll have to check out these PMTs - gotta link?

In our case it's not because of construction method it is because they are wider (28mm and 30mm) than our the rules allow (max 26mm).
Before the BSR's we used to race with Jaco pre-capped tires...also exelent tires, but they discontinued manufacture, and those were 26mm.

PMT's web site is www.pmt-tyres.it

We ( www.gppmodelracing.com ) distribute PMT down here and we sell the set of four slicks premounted in white BBS style rims at U$D 40.00 set. (50 shore fronts, 45 shore rears).

Default Kawaharra????

Hi Guys, we are racing MTX-3's at our club now and are in search of all the best bits. Can you guys give me some pointers as to where you buy the Kawaharra hop ups as most of the sites i visit have very limited selection of parts. Is there somewhere that we can order stuff over the internet?

Thanks Slotmachine, that's where i buy most of my gear from now but they seem to be limited in their Kawaharra stock compared to what is available for the cars. I have been trying a bit of the k-factory parts which seen to be pretty good as well.
