try http://www.pro-s-futaba.co.jp/home/a...customers.html

Another option is to ask Christopher Krapp's dad (Joachim) to ship some parts allthough shipping costs will be quite high I guess. The email adress of Joachim:

RC Point Krapp
rc-point@ewetel.net

Guys,

I currently own a SP version of the TF-6. Instead of the front spool, I would like to run the gear diff. But when I assemble it together, the front swing shafts seemed a bit long. the balls on the swing shaft bottoms out in the drive cups. Do I have to get the TF222 swing shaft inorder to have the gear diff fitted? It would be a waste not to use the double jointed swing shafts.

I've got the gear fitted in my sp and it fits fine. But I do have the short arms fitted and the D blocks with the hole outside and 1,5 degr camber. Did you use the shim near the bearings in the knuckle? You won't be needing that.

I was following Krapp's setup and used C blocks inside. I guess that's why the gear diff don't fit. Thanks for pointing that out.

yep, a solid company indeed, but really, wait for Herr Krapp first, he will make you a good deal if not, checkout at CMC!

@phil, how was the setup?

I talked to a guy named Joachim Krapp ....he quoted me 469 euro which is still a good deal but he doesnt take paypal....so my bank would charge me even more to do a bank transfer.

Hey guys,

Finally found some time to get my setup sheet done from the ETS race in Apeldoorn.

A few notes:
- I run the original TF6 arms on my car (shorter ones), please take note of the suspension holders fitting (do not use C-C inside like SP std setup)

- I used the old TF6 upper deck (2.25mm) with the rear carbon link removed for better flex on the rear-end of the car

- At the ETS I ran very little rear toe-in, this requires a smooth(er) driving style to make it work and increases corner speed. When having problems with rear traction just add more toe-in.

- At Apeldoorn I used HPI pink-silver springs, this is a specific setting for that track as the chicane after the straight has rather extreme camber change and 'holes' in the asphalt that your car gets 'sucked' into if you hit the apex right. For regular tracks I use HPI silver-silver for 90% of the times.

- The long front camber links are a Apeldoorn special as well because of its flowing/big layout. On shorter more twisty tracks it could help to run them in the middle hole on the upper bulkhead instead of the longest option to get quicker change of direction.

- On the sheet you'll notice there's no spacer underneath the front-front suspension mount and 0.5mm underneath the front-rear suspension mount. This is again an Apeldoorn setting, most of the time I use 0.5mm underneath the front-front block too.

This setup should work pretty much everywhere (asphalt), it's what I use 90% of the time.
