ey vasco few questions.
carry on the back the rear diff up position, which gives it advantages, more traction?

better bring the car back maximum width of 2 F and convergence?

I drive in Valencia Spain in alfalto outside with little dust in alfalto

a greeting

The diff in high position should generally give a little more rear traction, but the main reason we run it in high position is due to the rather extreme angle the rear driveshafts make when running it in low position. By reducing the angle the car gets less twitchy and more easily to drive.

The rear toe depends on the traction you have on the track and the motor you're using. In pro-stock generally less toe in is always faster.. Just start with 3 deg and reduce it with .5 deg at a time until the car gets too loose in the rear to drive comfortably.

Has anyone found the TF6 SP needed a "break in" period? Maybe about 8 5min runs before it started working properly?

@dontfeelcold; not that I know off.. I think maybe the track or your tires needed some running

My friend Bernd Wellerdiek (owner of Raceberry RC products) has been working on some interesting hop-up parts for the TF6(sp). The following parts have been released:

One piece servo mount (TF-215-RB)
http://sphotos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphoto...76831368_n.jpg

Available for 36,90 euro's

Solid suspensionblocks (RB-212)
http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphoto...19072735_n.jpg

Available for 29,50

Soon to be released; blade-based diff outdrives for easier maintenance and faster setup changes. (TFW-07-02-RB)
http://sphotos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/hphoto...15117997_n.jpg

Pre-order is possible, units cost somewhere between 12,90 to 14,90 euro's a piece. Won't be available
until the end of January.

When interested please contact Bernd at [email protected]
Please mention quantity, shipping and invoice address when ordering.

Unfortunately PayPal is not possible

Vesco,


Still running your asphalt setup as carpet is not an option locally, testing with Yokomo Pink and Blue for a bumpy track.

Looking for even more corner speed have moved to D out all round front and long rear arms over short for stability just in the rear

have you tried anything like this and happy to give feedback?

I have never tried this since the tracks I run on are quite flat..

It's quite normal that the car feels easier to drive with longer arms, but is it faster? Since pro-stock is quite easy to drive anyway I suggest to run whats quickest..

For a bumpy track try maybe a little bit more flex then usually, soft springs with thick oil (try HPI blue, 700wt no rebound for example) and run the motor and lipo more forwards then the std kit setting (see previous posts).

If anyone is looking to unload a TF6 SP, please pm me. This car is impossible to get here in the States but I'd like to get my hands on one.

Does Kyosho still make this car? I can't seem to find it even on foreign rc hobby stores.

Thanks for the info! Is there any particular parts on this car that are very weak or more susceptible to breaking? The dog bones look pretty innovative. Is there any problems with those breaking or slipping with a mod motor?

Also I guess that does still beg the question of does Kyosho still consistently make this car or is it something being phased out by them?

Do you mean an aftermarket DCJ, aside from the double joint front unis that come with the SP kit ?
