they should have them by now. In the rear I've started with 800. Got one for the front also, filling it with putty or kyosho 500.000, don't know yet, but won't use it untill indoor starts.

Most people run gear diffs front and rear. That's 12 grams more than if you used ball diffs front and rear ! If you change your front ball diff now to an even lighter spool, you get over 12grams less in rotational mass , understood .....Mr Side...phil of the N....lands !!! How are the dams holding up down there ???? The kyosho can't swim you know...lol...

I lost a couple of the balls for the universal shafts. I bought my TF-6 used (in almost perfect condition) and was switching chassis plates. I didn't realise the balls were loose, only kept in place by grease. And when I found out it was too late.... I found a couple of the balls, but couldn't find them all. I'm still missing three.....

So where can I get some of these balls, fast? Our indoor track opened last sunday, and I'm really eager to try it..... help!

Default I need a little help.

Living in Norway is a pain when driving a TF6. Kyosho Norway don't have the car, nor any spares or support. I get my spares online, and that's really OK, as ordering Kyosho stuff from my local hobby shop takes a lot longer than ordering from Europe, Asia or the US online. The local shop hadn't even heard of the TF6.
What I need, and haven't found online except from Kyosho Deutschland, are some TF6 stickers for the body. Kyosho Deutschland don't ship to Norway, and they didn't even answer my kind request to buy a simple sticker sheet from them.
So I really need some help from a kind soul, living in a county they DO ship to, to order the sticker sheet and post it to me when it arrive. I will pay all up front by PayPal, so you can be sure you'll not be screwed.

I have too few posts here to be allowed to post links, but I'll send the link for the sticker sheet on Kyosho.de in a PM to whoever wants to help me out.

Thanks in advance
Tom
