Thanks, I think that is an important function of a forum like this, we learn from each other.

Perhaps interesting for others with vintage Kyosho buggies is that the springs of the "gold shocks" are a direct fit on the FD-37 and FD-38 shocks. I was told these are not compatble, but these fit like a glove.

It doesn't matter what this guys says, the car your trying to get to handle well is old and looks like it's from the 80's. You need a better modern vehicle and some practice to drive like you want to.

Despite what "Freeze" stated here above, with the right springs, and a refurbished brushed motor, a combination of LRP can and armature, Tamiya endbell (original endbell had overheated when the motor was still with it's previous owner, and probably the reason it was given to me as free bonus when I bought some stuff from him) and some cleaning, this car can still achieve nice performance:

As the parking lot was a little more crowded than usual, limiting my run path both right and left, I couldn't go full throttle very long, but I think the video still gives a good impression of the car's handling and acceleration. Mind you, no lipo's were used, the car was running on a 6 cell 1600 mAh NiMh.
