to make more money ,

the same reason Xray comes with a new car every year , because it is "optimised" and it costs more than last year so we "have" to have it !!!!!

Classic reply..


4 degree seems to be the best all round solution for just about every track..

You have to wonder what setup would require a change in this area to get the car working better, never heard anyway say "Changed to 6 degrees .2 right there!!"

Never had a setup which changed from 4 degree personally but each to there own...

TF6 just works put on one of Mr C.Krapp or Mr C.Vasco setups and your car will instantly be a great car to drive

At ETS we swapped from D D front to C C front with a shim on the wheel hex , this gave a small amount more steering but kept the stability.

I was still running the old chassis and it was sooooooo stable and quick i even managed to get to 23rd in qualies , i was shocked ...... i ran almost the same set up as Vasco , but he is soooo smooth i needed some more rear grip because i am not so smooth as him , but my car responded well to the smallest of change and did exactly what needed it to do

I run C-C outwards with short arms basically everywhere. Gives a bit more turn in and steering throughout the corner.

Glad to hear that you guys are happy with the setups

don't worry....maybe they have to get the kit from Kyosho.de, shouldn't be that long. Keep us informed! On the plus-side...building this kit will be that easy, you won't have to modify anything so it will save you some hours... ;-)
