I'm always looking to add to my arsonal.
Adding more fire-power to your personal
arsonal is always a good thing.

+1 on the speed version or at least a version with a counterweighted crank. I love that smooth power.

Running a steel flywheel will also smooth out
the bottom end and help with better run times
too.

It hasn't been released here in Japan yet either. Looks like a December release in Japan. I will keep an eye out for them and let you guys know how they do. I am sure that I might be able to get my hands on a couple of them.

Looks like a .25 V-Spec with turbo cut crank. Ceramic bearing and AL carb inserts will work just fine. DLC coating on the crank is what I would like. The weighted crank in a truggy is not necessary IMO.
