I found out last night that a 416/7 spool also fits the car. The TF6 pulley needs to be drilled out to fit but it's a pretty straight-forward modification

TF6 SP will be released in March. This is from proshop futaba's site, google translate sorry!

Quote:
30 025 Book Kyosho Chassis Kit TF6 SP
49,980 yen 71,400 yen
Reservations will be released in March

Evolution of the SP high-end machines TF6!
Fully compatible with the latest high-power systems. The main chassis parts parts review, a thorough model of the race was born.
And price is deferred.

[Change]
Improving mechanical grip chassis roll will be actively making constriction around the main chassis. Change the shape of the upper deck is also easy to roll.
Adopt a double-joint type universal swing shafts on front.
How long is improved by the mechanical grip of the Suspension
Greatly increased durability and change in the joint of the front aluminum spool.
Steering knuckle, provide linear steering feel by changing the shape and position of the steering wiper mounting.
Rear cover the high-powered power source to Giyadefu change.
I think that means:
- Lipo top/bottom deck
- DCJs
- Long arms??
- Metal spool cups
- New steering knuckles
- Fixed rear belt stripping issue - new centre shaft maybe?

The advertised Japanese price on Pro-Shop Futaba for the TF6 SP is equal to $650, but when you order from OS it's a lot cheaper because you don't pay taxes... plus pro shop is about 10% more expensive than RC Champ

I spoke to Simon yesterday and he gave me a bit more info

In addition to the knuckles there is also a new steering rack, all to improve steering geometry. He also thinks the chassis "might" be all new.

Apparently Shin did some testing with the belts because he couldn't figure out why we were breaking them in Australia, so he put in LRP electronics like we all run and snapped a belt on his second pack so there are new stronger belts coming soon

He should have tried the Speed passion speedo with a stock profile in it and a 4.5 motor powering the thing
