      Many forum posts have been affected by Photobucket's recent decision to start charging for linking to photos in forum posts (and other places)
      When this happens, it's down to the post author to add their pics to another service or site and edit their posts to show the pics Please don't report posts or threads with dead Photobucket links, there's nothing admin can do about them.   Any posts with a version of the image below (size varies) have been affected by this decision.

Optima " Mid "

Recommended Posts

I have been planning this for a long time. Now, the basic idea is done.

I got a 3d printer and a cutting machine to make parts or plates.

However, the biggest problem is I don't have a lathe to make shafts.

I can check my spares but if I have anything its probably bent. Pargu makes them new and sells a tall version. You might also get some more die-hard vintage kyosho guys looking at this if you post it on rc10talk or oople. What wheels and tires are you running?

Thanks for your advice. I had tried and couldn't get an acount for RC10talk.

As for the damper stay, I think I can handle this problem.

In fact, I'm working on it and later on I'll have 2nd test run.

Not much.

test run didn't go very well. I guess I need a new front damper stay.

Put this on and I'm suprised that the body of Optima Pro fits almost perfectly.

There will be a driver, not this one though.
