New lid!

Got local kid Nick Schweiger (NCS Custom Paint) to do up a Pavidis replica. I have always liked his colours since I was a kid back in the 90's. It is also the colours of Re/Max which ties in with my job...LOL. I still will have a traditional johnnyboy digital flame one done up though from my boy Kris Norlock (Darkside Designs). You can never have too many cool lids! The car is slowly turning into a Kyosho hybrid..Going on the car will be Kyosho bearings, ball studs, ball end caps, Big Bore shocks and hopefully idler gears and gear diff (if they fit). Not too impressed with the quality of some of the parts on this car to be honest (gets sloppy quick). Cheap Chinese plastic. The A Arms are quite strong though!

Case in point. How does this happen???

Shin Adachi Leaving Kyosho!

Wow. Legendary Shin Adachi announced on Facebook that he is leaving Kyosho. Here is the post:

Dear All,

I will leave from Kyosho on January 20. It was hard decision for me to leave the company, please understand.
I thank you very much for your support and your cooperation past days. I really enjoyed working with you.

I think I will see you some racing track. Please free feel to speak me at that time, it would be pleasure for me.

Thank you again and wish you the best.

Best regards,

Shin Adachi
Kurt Wenger, another legendary designer at Team Associated is also leaving his post to start a new venture with David Joor of Avid Bearings.

Not just drivers jumping around!
