It's not an 02 kingpin, obviously, but it is something that is hackable using an 02 kingpin and a spare pivot ball.

Reflex offering a TiN-coated version of this product (thanks for confirming, Marcus), plus a Delrin pivot ball, is icing on the cake.


CT, if Kyosho offers you a job, take it -- I just came back from Japan, the "view" (wink wink nudge nudge) is great.

This is definitely an upgrade for MR03's front end. It is not even in comparison with stock front end. I felt how smooth this suspension is and watching CT's run during quals, you'll see the car is super stable like it was running on carpet but its not... I can't wait to get my hands on this!

CT: dont forget to send it this way. Thanks!

Long Kingpin diameter....

Is the diameter of these longer kingpins the same as the factory Kyosho kingpins. I ask because I just ordered the Kyosho Fluorine coated balls and need to know if they will fit. Just curious... I ordered the RR Delrin balls anyways.

I did this mod with extra kyosho balls and standard MR02 king pins and it is the same diameter.

My review and more pics here:
http://bankenz.blogspot.com/2010/01/...front-end.html


This front end rocks! Period.

Track record on the two different tracks i have been testing on.
Reacts extremely good to setup changes.
Fits together perfectly.
Very very consistent.
After a couple of weeks of use, no visible scratches in the coating on the king pins.
Smoother than anything available on the 03.

Finally i can use front springs that I really know the feel of.

Rune, thanks for the review and the great picture. My front end parts arrived yesterday and I can't wait to try them.

To these TiN coated kingpins need to be polished like the SS ones?

Check out my blog for more pics.

Do not polish them. They are as smooth as can be. Even the Kyosho plastic in the lower carrier did not need polishing. This could of course differ from car to car, but mine was a perfect fit.

I think any polishing of these king pins will destroy the coating they have.

Thanks for the quick response! I will check out your blog.

Have you tested for clearance under LM bodies by any chance?

sorry. I have not. But the height of these are roughly the same as the King pins on an MR-02 I guess it will not be a problem.
