Yes the Kyosho pipe is good but very light so a light tap it's tinted to the max.

I would say the pipes are expensive got mine for $250 aus.

Worth it as long as you look after it.

Hi there,

If you are interested, I have a set of the kyosho inline pipe (header/pipe) and another that is just pipe only.

Kyosho part # VSW024 - inline pipe (new but taken out of the bag)
Kyosho Part # VSW024-1 - pipe only (new in bag)

PM me for pricing. I am located in Los Angeles.

The Skyline pipe is the best yet. I tried the Kyosho and RD Logics pipe on my FW-05 and so far the Skyline pipe is the best all around pipe. Never heard anything about the Vantage pipes.

the vantage pipe is much stronger than the alum pipe. It sounds stupid, but its true. I have also noticed improved run time with vantage pipes. Myself I do not know too much about the skyline pipes.

hi all

i am planing on buyin a new Kit very soon.
Im ether goin for a mtx4 or a FW05RR

I would rather the 05 because im getting over belt cars. So the only probelm i have between the 2 is. I can get parts for a MTX3/4 Easy as any part within 5days. for cheap

I wanted to no if any of you guys new a HK shop that sell 05 parts/cars and all the other lil bits. becasue the shops i get my mugen parts dont stock anything really for them,

thanks

Post up what shops do not carry Kyosho near you, and I will do my best to get one or all of them to carry kyosho product. If you want to order parts and car online try warrick custom hobbies in FL. or if you are on the west try ultimate hobbies or rckenon.

check out the R version if you aren't planning to be that competitive. however, if you think high level competition might be in your near future, go ahead and get the RR.
