Also, when your ordering, following options are essential:
Geardiff (complete) TFW007 (or TFW-07)
Lipochassis, TF232
top plate 2.0 TF233

and a few spares:
front knuckles TF224
front casterblock TF225
front/rear arm TF226H

Hi

If you order from Chrissy Krapp's father in germany you get a lipo chassis and topdeck for €499 euros , plus i would buy 2 geardiffs and a selection of spares , arms , uprights , Chubs , belts.

Not that the car is bad BUT you live in the US so spares will be none exsistant !!!

A lot of manufactures like to show support for their distributors. If you can order something cheaper directly from said manufacture then what would be the point of dist. ordering kits/parts to stock if no one will pay more?

I hear what you are saying.

I just wish more distributors carried their product. AMain does a good job on the offroad side and some of the onroad, but Tower has not carried anything for years now. Just wish the support was there.

I was out of R/C for a long time. Noticed a lot of off road Kyosho drivers to the area I relocated to. Went to Tower Hobbies and was shocked they no longer carried Kyosho. In fact they have dropped A LOT of manufactures for whatever reason? Not even Yokomo is available in the states sadly. Schumacher had a dist. in Tampa not far from where the Snowbirds got its start to begin with. Now Schumacher has pulled from the states as well.

I too wish there was more support, but curious to know why all the support that was there is non-existent now?

Indoors we usually go with Tamiya white/blue or HPI gold/silver. I like the feeling of the Tamiya springs better for fast/flowing tracks and use the HPI one's for a more technical/small track since they give a little bit more aggressive feeling to the car.

Outdoors I use HPI pink/silver or silver/silver for 90% of the time. Yokomo springs might work on fast/flowing tracks because they're progressive.

Hi Stefan,

No, as right now I run the standard arms in front. I still need to try the older long arms, but I think in pro stock the standard arms are pretty good.

When I've run the long ones I'll let you know how it went

longer arm for open/mod class, standard for pro-stock.

kyosho in my opinion has been struggle with their own distributor in cali. leaving hobbico/great planes gave them more options but they didn't have enough inventory to provide sufficient supports to retailers.
