Tread lightly... If you want information, you have to play by the rules...

Basically when trying to find info, use the search as much as you can, because most likely it is in there. I know sometimes the answers might not be clear or if you even you the corect key words to find it.

I know on club4ag they have a FAQs section. They seem pretty harsh on the newbies, but some of the questions have been answered a bunch of times. You can also go to ectoyotas.com and hachiroku.net

Good luck in your quest for more info.

AWIC eliminates the heatsoak...but that means either finding a 20G from an RS/GT or getting your hands on one. Coil packs are the only real issue, IAC has been sweet so far.

lmao...

Anyways, check out this site: http://swapstarproductions.blogspot.com/
Some interesting stuff here if you look around, but you kind of have to pretend you suck at english.

I would say the hardest part is finding some parts. Some parts only work with other 20g parts. So if you blow something in the motor, you either have to find the exact hard to find part, or you have to replace more than just one thing, and it kind of sucks.

OK I'll admit the coils can be problematic,
time for me to jump on the coil conversion bandwagon
