Hello. So far I think I'm the only person in the U.S with the K8 1/8 scale on-road kit. I like the car so far. The car comes with all hop-up parts as standard. The plastics are hard and durable. The build went together well without any modifications.The drive train is SUPER SMOOTH. Kenny Ng and his team did a great job with this car the first time around.

K8 clutch shoe is very thick when new,you need to shim up alot.I usually shim between shoe and bell with 0.5mm,clutch spring 0.8mm,without end play
