I want to thank Kyosho of America, especially Efrain who i've been speaking to for 2 months. Efrain finally told me to send in my transmitter, MR-03 chassis and Countach body and he'll see what he can do to install a rear shock.

He took my whole car apart and put it together again. I just had to purchase one part and that was the RML Aluminum Motor Mount. Here it is:

The only part he used from an MR-02 was a plastic damper post. The black friction shock are from the MR-03.

He finally found a way to install a shock and I was so happy.

Here is my Lamborghini Countach:

I bought the wrong motor. The motor I bought is for use with Li Fe batteries only. So Kyosho installed a motor free of charge that works with regular alkaline batteries.

This is the motor I bought:

This is the motor Kyosho installed:

It's fast.

i never heard of a motor that will only work on life batteries. didnt you say in an earlier post that it worked when you took it out of the car and hooked it up to a battery? only difference in life and aaa is voltage. even if it needed the extra voltage from the life packs it still should have ran on the aaa's

That's what Kyosho told me.

Good tip! FYI to anyone else looking to mount an RML AutoScale such as the Countach, we have the Kyosho Route 246 R246 Mini-Z Alloy RML Motor Mount for MR-03 RM that you need in stock (and for that matter, the MZW8P X-Speed that Starsky5000 ended up going with!)! :)

those R246 motors do say for Life battery only. some guys at the track here, MC3, use them and they are crazy fast
