Very nice, I like the wing. Helps to distinguish cars on the track. Only problem is that if you plan on running it at the K Cup, you cannot add wings or spoilers to the car. I like it though.

You cant run mr02's at the kyosho cup...


or can you?? maybe I misread the rules


I love the wing, where did you get it from?

PAULANGELO

MR02's and the Ol are a new class. You can run them but not against the MR01's

OMG !! this is great !!!!

but I guess I cant use my GPM hop ups?

PAULANGELO

sorry, GPM is a NO NO. Only Kyosho. down to the rechargable batteries! only thing you can use that isn't the big K is Bearings and tires. Tires must be rubber though, no foams.

what about tires? I have some GPM tires which are very good

ProfoxCG
2003.10.10, 12:57 PM
what is the point to not allow other hop ups??? specially when they have produced anything worth buying yet !

PAULANGELO

Tires are OK as long as they are rubber. Reason is this is a business. Money plain and simple. It would look bad for the compitition to beat them.

well then in that case I hope they have some roll shocks and 2deg - 3deg nuckles for the MR02, so I can switch my GPM stuff

WHAT ABOUT H-PLATES KYOSHO !!!!!

ProfoxCG
2003.10.10, 01:42 PM
do you guys think that adding a wing has an effect on the car ?? or is the car so small that it doesnt matter?

I am starting a thread on the enzo for the KCUP

PAULANGELO

YUP, Kyosho only!

ProfoxCG
2003.10.10, 01:55 PM
so where can I get kyosho h-plates and 2deg knuckles?

now here is the biggest joke
.NOTE: Employees of Great Planes Model Distributors Company and Team-sponsored drivers, including those employed by or financially supported in any way by a hobby retailer, distributor or manufacturer, are ineligible and cannot participate in these races.



This caused problems at the last race in NY and there are people that have not come back because of it. Since they are coming down on the hopups harder (batteries) they better do a better job in enforcing this

well, since there is not Kyosho h-plate, im just going to not race the enzo / or buy a new one ! :mad:

PAULANGELO

If you broke your stock H plate, they do sell them. Unfortunetly, you need to get a KIT and you will get more than just the H plate. I plan on getting a few when my LHS gets them.

I am hoping that they come out with more bodies before the race. As I read before, it is going to be hard keeping track of a race with 3 red and 3 yellow enzos. Looks like I have to get my paint out :D

I love kyosho, but they need to get the ball rolling with MR02 parts maybe? - or am I just very impatient

Heres a question:
What about MR-01.5's?
The MR-01 motor pod on a MR-02, what class would that be in?
Would that be legal?

nope, cannot run the hybrids. only what KYOSHO designed. not a combination of their products.
