Default Size of standard spur gear

Sorry for "hijacking" the TF6 thread from you pros, but I'm really eager to get my TF6 on the carpet and have no one to ask, and as I said in an earlier post, not even Kyosho Norway.

What is the size of the standard spur gear supplied with the TF6. It doesn't say in the manual, and I have searched the net high and low, with no success. The manual just states that a pinion between 29 and 50 is required for operation, but doesnt mention the spur. I have a good range of suitable pinions in that range, but the spur gear I got with my used TF6 is 87 and is so large that I barely can fit a 24 pinion (even that is too tight) when the motor can't be pulled further away from the spur.

Since the manual states pinions from 29 to 50 my conclusion is that my spur is not the one supplied in the kit.

So what is te correct "kit size" spur?

Tom

Hi Tom, If you are on facebook look me up and I´ll let you inside the closed Kyosho group that David Ronnefalk´s dad has set up. They´ll be able to give you some info on setup and such for the car.

Cheers

Hi Tom,

With regards to the sticker sheet for the TF6, Kyosho do not make a sticker sheet for the TF6, the have one for the TF5 or a general sticker sheet.

Part number is:

39081 Team Original Decal
39778 Team works Decal

Good luck trying to get the TF5 sticker sheet (very hard to get)

Hope that helps.

Also, Champ RC do not normally stock any TF6 kits/parts, but are more than happy to order them in for you, but it takes sometime. Pro Shop Futaba (also in Japan) carry more items as normal stock.


Leonard.

Ok, no worries mate. It must be a Kyosho Germany thing, as Japan has no sticker sheet for the TF6. Lucky Germans!!!

Hi Tom,

I've got the TF6 decal sheet at home. If you'd really like to have it I might be able to send it to you.. just hit me up on Facebook or something. ( Vasco Christiaanse )

Kyosho is very slow with answering email indeed. Due to the financial crisis they'd to make some changes within the company and everybody is working overtime. There are some internal changes coming up which should solve the communication problems for the near future.

shipping from Aus to USA shouldn't have to be that high. He's got a great package to sell, you won't be dissapointed with the TF6
