Modification Notes: Zac has been running this very heavily modified car based primarily on the Kyosho, the biggest single difference are the HB D812/D815 front lower arms, which fit surprisingly well and require few mods, Zac prefers them to stock Kyosho front arms which have been known to be fragile. He has yet to break or not finish a race due to mechanical break down.

He also has his own stronger front and rear shock towers, thicker studier suspension blocks all round (twice as thick in the rear as stock for added strength – a requirement when running on tracks as hard as Pattaya etc.). Lunsford screws allround, K nuts from Belgium locking in the shocks, body post button head on the center diff keeps the brake cam from falling out when removing the center diff. Zac runs a Kingheadz engine mount that screws directly into the chassis with tapped holes which will prevent it from moving during extreme impacts.
