Yes mate unfortunately they have got the weight machined into them but i seen my mate the other day he is going to take it off with his lathe it worked out good as i want to borrow his speed gun as well so i can get that while i am there.

Hey Deen i hope you don't mind me joining in on your thread i don't want to hijack it.

Dialed works very well! I tried 3s with my Pepsi Suzuki. It disengaged!

The single sided swinging arm is very good, it has not got a slipper clutch on it, that only happens when its not been put together right, it should not slip, my Honda handles great with it but be warned the wheels you get with it just fall to bits, unless you can get an alloy one made forget it, nice to see the interest in the Kyosho bikes again.

Hey Throttlejunkie,

Your parts look good - cant wait to see the finshed bike. Interested in your comments about building a Suzi too - I considered something similar as I bought a Kyosho chrome frame for the HOR after my Honda HOR kit arrived. So I looked at all the other bits required, many standard Kyosho and of course the preferred/reccommended hop ups that you guys on this forum seem to run. Costwise it initially looked expensive, so I bought a Suzi kit that came with some extra bits, alloy forks, 28BB motor, the Kyosho "race/sticky" tyres & wheels. I am happy with the purchase, but of course realise that many stock bits remain untouched when you upgrade a build, so will be interested in any comments on the final cost if anmd when you work it out.
Like you guys, I would love it if Kyosho would release new 1/8 scale bikes again.......

Hi Zander, yeah at first i was just going to get the suzi body panels & another rider & just swap them over now & then but thought i might as well use the left over stock parts & build another bike but i will keep account of the cost & see what it ends up being.
I am looking forward to getting started to but like Deen i am still waiting on parts looking forward to seeing your builds as well mate.

They are a nice looking set up, a bit pricey though if the wheels are no good, it would be really nice though if you had someone to make you an alloy like the one in the pics hint hint
I would love to have the machinery & know how to use it to make stuff, i would go nuts & make alloy bits for everything.
