Default TF-6 built report

I finished the built report of the TF6 after receiving the narrow lipo chassis, thinner top deck and gear diff.

I also experimented with google's blog provider as some readers could not access my current blog. What do you guys think?

Is there any way to get one of these in the US? Kyosho America doesn't sell them and I'd really like to upgrade my TF-5 - especially the new LiPo chassis, top deck, and gear diff.

Default Gear ratio (pdf)

Hello
In the manual sheet from Kyosho is not the Gear ratio. I think that`s Bad for me .
Damn...Because I´m so lazy to count on...
Maybe has someone a PDF here on this own computer and this could provide pure.
That would help me a lot. Does not want to count on.
Thanks...
Reggie

I was told the cost was the reason. It would retail for over a 1K.

Kyosho feels TC is dying in the US and would focus more on offroad and entry level rtr for on-road. You can order one from over seas pay the shipping and still be way under 1K - No reason why Kyosho would be more...

We had a lot of sponsored drivers locally that dropped Kyosho and went Losi, etc. for off road. The major reason was parts availablitly. Kyosho is no where near where it once was in that respect. Tower Hobbies was always the largest supplier of Kyosho and then just stopped...

I agree Kyosho America only really supports off-road, but I said the retail cost would be over 1K. If you look on Kyosho America's site the TF5 Stallion still retails for $889.99

http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/TF-5-STALLION-_p_586.html

The TF6 runs 499 euros ($671) from Kyosho Germany. The LAZER ZX-5 SP FS2 runs 399 euros ($536) and Kysoho America sells it for $739.99 retail. In general everything from Kyosho America cost too much. The problem is that if none of the big three hobby stores carry it no one will pay those prices for the cars.



So why does Kyosho America charge so much for any of their stuff

My deal with ordering the s411 is not hapening anymore, so going to order this kyosho, Does it come with a lipo chassis, or do I need to purchase it seperatly, also what else do I need to complete the car, I see all the car and they have a lipo chassis, is there a kit I can buy and not need to purchase extra parts, if so please can someone give me the part number, and also how is the car, compared to the s411, thanks
