Just ordered me a Kyosho turbo and now I'm waiting for it to arrive. I'll try to get some pictures of it when it comes and also give my opinion. Its a bit expensive though at 3500 odd yen!!
Oh well at least it will work... if I don't screw up.

Actually, I think it's a rebadged Apex with the usual inflated price tag :)

Sumo,

I am curious as to why you ordered one from Japan.
They are available here in the UK.

I ordered from Japan because its actually cheaper. Well cheaper than the place I tried anyway. Where do you actually get the majority of your parts from Mondo?

Sumo,

From the Mini-ZRacer.com Shop and the UK HS outlets for emergency parts.
I save 30%+ buying from here compared to UK prices.

I thought the mini-z racer shop doesn't do worldwide...

Sumo,

Of course they do, unless Norwich fell off the planet :D
Shipping is cheaper than UK local postal rates and the goods take an average of 10/ten/X days to arrive.

I recommend the Mini-ZRacer.com shop to all UK Members.

Hmm... I might have to give 'em a go!
I got the Turbo and it works great!! It was easy to install (probably the same as the other turbos) and it only added 9 grams! The quality of the wires and how they are soldered was top notchand I would thoroughly reccommend it if it were not for the price but it isn't actually that much more money. Depends on if you have cash to spare I suppose...
Pictures after I get the film developed (might be a while but I promise to get 'em up)
