really, you don't need the extra blocks, those are just an option if you want to try some different setups, youre fine with the blocks in the kit. Kit setup is fine. But if you need some extra, ebay is your friend again:

http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Kyosho-TF018-...item2eb1ee1656

great shop!

One more question guys how is kyosho when it comes to kit releases ...for example the tf6 came out and i noticed the tf6 sp came in march of this year soo should i just hold off for a bit because maybe the tf7 will be out next year. I would just hate to buy the tf6 sp and then and new kit is released 6 months from now.Thanks.

it took a while for the SP was released after the TF6 (over a year, pr more)... I've got no hints, clues or secret birdy's telling that there will be a new kit. Chrissy had a standard SP at the worlds, only differcences were steel DJ all around (as far as I could see) and that will be an option.

All the latest hot stuff is in the kit, you can't think of anything you would want extra or different ;-)

And it probably took 3 years to get the TF6 from the TF5 platform

ya the tf6 was a brand new kit ...the sp was an upgrade to that ...i doubt they will wait 2 and of half years for a new kit but thats just using my simple brain.

i could see a tf7 coming in a year to a year and a half .

No such thing as a TF7 coming in the near future..

The TF6 and TF6sp are right up there, as a matter of fact.. some parts from the 'old' car are being used by the team in some conditions for better performance. When looking at other chassis the Kyosho is one of the better choices, the chassis includes all the latest trends when it comes to chassis and parts design.

Even if a TF7 would be released in about a year you'll most definitely be able to use parts from your 'old' chassis on the new car. Even a lot of TF5 parts fit the TF6sp right away..
