I think this is for the previous TF6, you'll need the TF6 SP version. Get it at RC Market, very nice shop, fast shipping and good pricing.

For spares... Get a set of arms and steering knuckles, that's all I ever broke The new kit is top of the bill, everything included, you won't regret it!

just fine, multiple setup options to make the car a bit stiffer, you won't need to buy other parts to change setup (hingpins with inserts to change trackwide, rollcenter, etc...). Buy some 0,5 & 1,0 and 1,5 shims for setupchanges and youre set.

Not too much experience with the SP car on carpet but since its basically the same as the TF6 it should perform very well.

Things I'd recommend for carpet:
- Get the TF6 suspension arms (for pro-stock, are little shorter then the SP one's)
- Use TF6 upper deck (stiffens up the car a little bit for better corner speed)

Outdoors I'm also using the TF6 upper deck and suspension arms instead of the SP's, I feel for pro-stock this gives a bit more aggressive/precise handling car with better corner speed. In modified Chrissi is using the SP arms and switches every now and then between the 'old' and new 'sp' top deck.

These are just minor changes to get the car to my likings, car seems to be very good straight out of the box though!

No real need for spares other then the usual stuff, the quality of parts is really good. Can't remember the last time I broke something, but it's always a good thing to have some spare plastics just in case..

Used these guys to get my second car...

They deal direct with Kyosho for you so can get all the new parts as they are released.

Just email them the part numbers or the request they quote you pay via Paypal then mail it over take 3-4 days from Japan to Australia


Never once had any problems with them
